Lukmaan Restaurant


First I’ll introduce the most popular restaurant in Stone Town called “Lukmaan”


You can have seafood, Indian, Local food… various dishes here.


The restaurant here is also loved by the locals and very prosperous.


It is always crowded at lunch time and sometimes there are no seats available.


If the timing is bad, popular dishes may be sold out.


So it is better to go before 12:00 for lunch and 18:30 for dinner.


The recommended food at this restaurant is biryani and some kinds of curry.

Biryani has a flavor compared to plain rice and it goes well with curry.


Also you can have fresh juice in Lukmaan.


Mixed juice of mango and passion fruit is the most recommended among many fresh juice.


It cost only 3000 Tanzania Shilling for one drinks.


I have never broken but some of the reviews say that they broke stomach with fresh juice If you are worried it is better not to drink it.


The overall budget for the meals is like 10000Tanzania shilling per person.

My favorite Sushi in this restaurant is “Smoke Salmon Roll” and “Shrimp Avocado Roll”.


These sushi rolls are both very delicious for me as a Japanese.


It is also attractive that you can drink sake here.


Have you ever try it??


It is made from rice and easy to drink with fruity taste in spite of high alcohol content.


Also Japanese original seasoned ginger served with sushi is delicious.


There is no doubt that the Japanese restaurant recommended by the Japanese with confidence.

There are many kind of curry.


Don’t worry if you are not good at spicy food, you can choose the hotness.


There is one more order here.


I want you to order the nan with curry by all means.


Not rice or biryani, nan


Especially garlic nan in Ma shaa Allah is very good.


Nan is delicious to eat as it is but if you dip it in to the curry its going to be perfect.



There are something that you should not forget after eating.

Having chai after a meal is my secret pleasure.

The features of this restaurant is that the scenery is beautiful.


It is located on the beach as the store name says, and you can have a meal while looking at the sea.


Also this restaurant is located on the west side of the island, which means that you can see the sunset setting towards the sea in the evening.


So I recommend using the terrace during the sun setting.


Don’t worry if you feel too early to take a dinner at sunset time.


The beach House Restaurant also has a large selection of drinks and sweets so you can use like a café.


And add, not only food but also sweats are very delicious.

This is a dining bar similar to taperia.


6Degrees is a great place to drink, because it is located by the sea, you can see the sea from the terrace.

Pizza dough is handcrafted and baked in the store.


There is a day when such freshly baked pizza can be eaten for free.


It is called “Pizza Night”


It’s held every Wednesday and if you order one pizza you can get another one pizza for free.


So I recommend to go on Wednesday.


But you have to be careful, because it is especially crowded on Wednesday


So sometime there are no seats available or it may take some time for your order to arrive.


If you eat once, you will understand why it is so popular.
