Great food great service! - Edit

My fiancé and I visited Joshi's right before the new year! We were exhausted, and hungry, and nighttime was almost upon us. We happened to see an advertisement for Joshi's near a date stand...so glad we found the place and it couldn't have been a better way to end our time on the island! Perfect for vegan/vegetarians; everything made by Joshi himself, from scratch and with healthy ingredients. Not only is Joshi an amazing chef, but he is an excellent host! It is evident that this is his passion! Next time we are on Zanzibar, we are going straight to Joshi's!

Pros: Delicious, healthy, local food, Wonderful host, Indoor and outdoor seating

Cons: A bit tricky to find, but people can direct you

The Place to have Zanzibari Mix - Edit

This is a place you could quite easily miss if it were not for the tables laid out in the middle of the street. The restaurant is a hole in the wall and the sitting area is in the street - such a good idea in Stone Town to people watch whilst having Urojo - also known as Zanzibari Mix - it is a smooth and tangy soup cooked with lemon and mango, with potatoes, onions slices, peanuts and crispy bhajias immersed, topped with a spoon of coconut chutney, a dash of red-hot chutney and deep fried potato shavings sprinkled on top.

And Mr Joshi's hospitality is to be savoured too! We shared out table with a local and learned that this was not just a tourist pitstop but a popular place with locals.

It is hard to find (behind the main market area) but every local seems to know it so dont be afraid to ask for Joshi's restaruant and the place to have Zanzibari mix.

Pros: Outdoor sitting to people watch, Seriously satisfying main dish, Reasonable price

Cons: No go if raining
