Their wood fired pizza is delicious, whenever I’m craving pizza then The Blue Heron is my to go to. I also tried Lasagna the other day and loved it too. When in Arusha make sure to check them out.

Had a great meal here,the pizza was the best, it was made in a proper wood oven which you can see from the seating area outside. The staff were manerly and attentive. This place is value for money. They also have a nice gift shop.
