Top Restaurants in Mwanza - Tanzania

'The Prawn Place'

‘The Prawn Place’ is not its official name, but then again this restaurant doesn’t need an official name; everyone knows where it is. Venture down the alley beside the Liberty Street mosque in town, to try some of this secret gem’s grilled prawn mishkaki (kebabs) with sweet and sour sauce. One of the best place place to enjoy your evining

Ayoub's BBQ

This little-known delight is hidden in the backstreets of Mwanza, and serves the best BBQ chicken in town. Opt for the lemon-grilled chicken if you’re not a fan of too much spice or if you like a little bit more kick, opt for the Gujarati, similar to tandoori chicken but spicier, marinated with chili, ginger, garlic, cumin, and other spices.

Mwanza Yacht Club

There are a few options for pizza in Mwanza, but the margarita pizza at the Mwanza Yacht Club is by far the best. A thin crust pizza with a flavorful sauce, fresh tomatoes and mozzarella. The Yacht Club is a prime Mwanza location right on the shores of Lake Victoria, a perfect spot for a sunset and a sundowner before pizza.


Ryan’s Bay Hotel

The butter chicken at Ryan’s Bay is positively delicious and by far the best in town. The complexity of flavor far outweighs the other options available in Mwanza; a rich, creamy sauce, full of mild spices, ginger and garlic. Pair it with some naan bread and it’s a definite delight! Welcome to Mwanza and enjoy your stay/Safari

Victoria Palace Hotel

Victoria Palace Hotel is up in Capripoint, not far from the lake but without the view. However, the food makes up for the slight disadvantage in location, especially if you order the Zanzibar fish; two fish fillets covered in coconut tomato sauce. You can choose what you accompany the fish with, so if you’re interested in sampling ugali , it’s available and well prepared.

Awale Café

A small diner off Airport Road, Awale serves up the most delicious pilau in the city. Pilau is a spice-infused rice dish most often made with beef stock, cardamom, cinnamon, clove, ginger and garlic. It typically has pieces of meat, vegetables and potatoes mixed in. Be sure to go during the day for lunch or an early dinner, as it’s not open in the evening


Container Pub - Mwanza

Many Mwanzanites love barbecued pork, locally known as kitimoto and you can’t come to Mwanza without trying chips mayai. Container Pub serves up a good version of both. This is a great meal to share with friends, to eat with your hands and to wash down with a cold beer. Chips mayai is in essence chips/french fries cooked into an omelette.

Tilapia Hotel - Mwanza

he tepanyaki grill at Tilapia Hotel has grill tables that can seat about 10 people and a grill chef who cooks in front of you, serving your meal in small courses. Start off with a vegetable potato patty, followed by a mix of seafood, fish, chicken and beef. The meat and seafood is accompanied by fried rice and the meal is finished with ice cream.

Pasiansi Chinese Restaurant

A new contender on the Mwanza food scene, the Chinese restaurant in Pasiansi is a must. Authentic Chinese dishes prepared with local ingredients and bursting with flavor are consistently available. For meat eaters, the sweet and sour chicken is a favorite. For vegetarians, there is a sweet and sour tofu and fried eggplant option.
