Food For Thought

The Ol Mesera Restaurant was designed and built-in Manyara for one reason, and that is celebrating Tanzanian hospitality. A feast for the senses, from the artwork, textiles, decor, friendly faces and the smell of the cooking fires burning.


For mains, enjoy a family-style feast of locally inspired dishes, created to celebrate the “Karibu culture” in full swing Dishes including Mchicha ( Wild Spinach with Cashews and Coconut Milk) Pilau ( Zanzibar spiced local rice with grilled vegetables ) Nyama Choma ( slow-roasted beef short rib, flashed on the open flames ), Chicken Mishkaki, grilled to perfection. A must-try is our secret recipe of “Chips Ugali” ( Local Maize Flour Fries ) …..Great vegetarian, gluten-free and vegan options are available.
