305 Karafuu (Karafuu Street, Plot 305, Kinondoni, Dar Es Salaam) – this restaurant has gained a reputation as one of the finest in the whole of Dar. Located on a quiet side street in Kinondoni district, it has the feel of a family home. The owner’s friendly service is second to none, and the bar is possibly the best stocked in Tanzania.
Inside you’ll find low, contemporary yet rustic furniture and an aromatic open kitchen. The walls are bedecked with paintings from local artists, all available for sale. The food is international, but with a definite Tanzanian flavor and lives up to this setting; highlights include king prawn curry and succulent salmon fillets.
