Best sushi I have had in Arusha! They also have a delicious tofu dish!! There isn't many options for vegetarians. Their drinks menu is pretty short as well. They have nice outdoor and indoor seating. Also there is a cute local cat!

Sazan has a great range of sushi and hot dishes, and almost all if it is great. At first it seems a bit suspicious to be serving sashimi this far from the coast, but they get it in regularly straight from Tanga, and in two...More
