Eating in Arusha: Pizza Stop


Ever since I first saw the ‘now open’ banner outside this shop I have on two occassion failed to sample out their pizza. Last night I was determined to have their pizza despite two recommendations to other spots.

The environment:


It couldn’t be more inviting, at the road side with large wide open doors, see through windows and a barbeque on the front porch. I tried sitting on the outdoors table for four but it was too smoky from the fat burning on the grill and was forced indoors. The space inside had simple table for four sets with zebra print linen in 3 rows and 2 columned. Was well lit and I like that it didn’t feel congested. Yesterday was particularly busy, customers were going in and out.

The service:

The customer care was satisfactory,  the waiter was prompt and attentive. He even got me a voucher from a nearby store when I inquired for one.

The menu:


Very affordable prices ranging from 500Tshs for a veggie samossa to 15,500Tshs for their special double decked pizza. A glass of fresh juice was at 2000Tshs and a cup of black tea a mere 500Tshs. I had chicken tikka pizza at 11,000Tshs; a thin crust topped with green pepper, tomato cubes, pieces of chicken and molten cheese served on a wooden plate. It wasn’t great, even though the base was hardly 1cm thick it still felt raw. The pieces of chicken didn’t taste tillable and I could figure out the cheese because it seemed to have disappeared into the overpowering taste of the tomato base which fell short in seasoning. For the price I paid I have had better pizza at Mc Moody’s for less.

My verdict :

The shop is located on a quiet street in town not too far from meat king, they open up till 10 pm and have a variety on their menu that can serve both vegeterians and meat lovers. Being new, I think they deserve one more visit on a future date, say 3 months from now. Until then, it’s probably not the place to go if you are looking for a lasting culinary experience.
