Over the centuries Zanzibar’s colourful cuisine has been a melting pot of far-flung cultures and spice trading - even Zanzibar’s name evokes exotic aromas and exciting flavours. Here we’ve got an Indian-influenced dish of chicken biryani, although unlike a traditional biryani, the fragrant rice and chicken curry are cooked separately and in Zanzibari restaurants would be assembled to order. On the side we’ve got a rich coconut dhal, a hot and tangy date chutney and chilli salt fruit which is often served as a snack on the island.

Lovely thick and rich curry sauce, with plenty of sweet and spicy sides to mix things up a bit. Would definitely recommend
