I ordered lemon and garlic prawns with home-made noodles, a delicacy! All delivered to my home near Njiro Complex at an affordable price. I’ll order again!

After Kilimanjaro climb and Serengeti Safari, we were seriously missing hot spicy home food. We (my famiily and a friend) visited this Chinese Whispers on 10/11/2023 and had dinner. I was really craving for hot spicy food, the cook made special hot sauce for us...that i spread all over the food. all the food we ordered was fantastic ... the steamed fish, kungpao chicken, garlic chicken, and more ... all were so good. the waiter was very attentive, the owner came by and checked on us ... i would definitely go back if i ever go back to Arusha, Tanzania ...More

Amazing service and hospitality and most important top notch food, ordered sizzling beef and it wass the perfect amount of tender and flavor. Also has the spring roles and they were on point. Amazed by the offering of dry pori (eland) meat.

The interior is ugly, service extremely slow, the prices quite high, we received one out of two dishes that we did not order, but especially the food wasn't very good. The only positive thing: the white wine by the glass was very good.
