To enter Jackfruit is to enter a garden of senses. The quiet atmosphere brings serenity to accompany a delicious meal, prepared with Tanzanian kindness and wholehearted passion. The spacious garden beneath a majestic sky offers a perfect backdrop to my cappuccino in the morning, calzone in the afternoon or a cocktail prepared with skill by Gibson in the evening. Overall my favourite space for writing in Moshi.

We loved our lunch at the Jackfruit Cafe. Our party had a combination of burgers and pizzas and everyone commented how good the food was; up there with the best burgers I have ever eaten! The menu was extensive and there were lots of different options to tempt us. We sat outside underneath the sun shade. The grounds are well maintained and peaceful. We were served quickly for both drinks and food and our final bill was very reasonably priced. We also appreciated our Kilimanjaro beers being brought out with tankard style glasses! We weren't able to stay long but would recommend Jackfruit Cafe to anyone looking for a good bite to eat in this part of Moshi.

This is one of the most beautiful cafes in the area with service that stands out and an impressively diverse and delicious menu. With a large playground it's great for kids yet also is expansive enough that you can have a romantic date here. If you are visiting you won't want to miss stopping by here and if you live here you are guaranteed to run into a friend or two or three...

I was yesterday with some friends, I liked the pizza and we paid with a 50 dollar bill because if you do not make the change to the Tanzanian money you loose money, so you have to pay with big bills,??? I returned today alone, it took 50 minutes to bring some macaroni, food ok, I ask for the bill, I have no change in local currency, so in this first act I lose 3.5 dollars, then they bring me the turns in their official currency, not in dollars and again I lose 1 dollar with the change. In total a bill of 13.7 dollars has become 17, 6. I am a traveled person and I do not understand why they treat tourism in this way in this country, it is fully accepted and widespread abuse, either with the changes, with the price differences for locals and non-locals etc ... If they continue to take care of us like this we will go to places where they think we are tourists but not stupid with a dollar face. A pity the truth

Thank you for leaving feedback Carlos. Happy you liked our pizzas. Sorry to hear you had an unhappy experience with currency exchange here and in the country in general. Like any other place we operate in the official currency which is the Tanzanian Shilling. We accept foreign currencies on customer requests where the customer is usually notified on the rate that'll be used depending on the dollar bill, and is usually a mutual agreement before accepting. In case a bill is paid in dollars and change is needed to be given, in most cases we give change in shillings as we are a restaurant that operates in Tanzanian shillings daily and we do not normally have foreign currency to give back as change. Please note that we have other means of payment. We accept credit cards and phone payments. Hope you'll give it another try during your visit here.

A team from Jackfruit Cafe (chef and two colleagues) came to our house to do catering for 20 people. As we love the cafe and the delicious food, we gave it a try at home. We were very pleased with everything. Super friendly staff, that proved to be very flexibel when we had to extend their working hours last minute. Delicious food, good setup and a spotless kitchen right after the dinner party. The menu we got to choose from was large and they provided tea and coffee and one of their marvellous cakes for desert. Thanks Jackfruit Cafe for a lovely Christmas Eve with a large part of our family at our home.

Some 4 or 6k from the center of the city, in the middle of houses, you will find jackfruit. For us the best food experience in Moshi. Not “local” for “local people” but amazing. Jackfruit is a beautiful garden restaurant like a refuge from the crowded streets of Moshi. We went two times there. Most because of the service – the first time the restaurant was full and the kitchen just melted with all the orders. But the food was really good. We tried pasta, prawns, and even vegan sushi. The deserts are homemade and incredible. Service was always amazing and professional. You must go.

I love Jackfruit Cafe for three simple reasons: most delicious food, very beautiful location, and VERY FAST SERVING. I am so happy every time I come here, because I am getting top-quality food at a very picturesque place without having to wait an hour and a half for my food to arrive. I 100% recommend!!!

I ordered Hawaiian pizza and loved it. Delivery took less than 25 minutes, the quickest I've ever had in Moshi. The pizza was delicious and filling! I disagree with the common belief that pineapples do not belong on pizza and often order Hawaiian pizza. And Hawaiian pizza in Jackfruit is one of my favorites. I really recommend this cafe to everyone who loves pizza!

Well I like this place really, good food, nice garden. But today I ordered Spaghetti Carbonara and asked to make it in the real style, means without cream sauce. Instead I got spaghetti with tomato sauce. Really disappointing...

We were so excited when Jackfruit opened in Moshi and they never disappoint. They have amazing sushi and the BEST burgers and fries in Tanzania. There menu has something for everyone. Our children love their chicken burgers, pizza and pasta. It has a wonderful atmosphere. Do NOT forget to order dessert. We have found ourselves going their in the afternoon for delectable chocolate cake and rich cheesecake. They are our first choice in Moshi.

The food and atmosphere at Jackfruit are great. They offer a wide variety of food and have a great play area for kids with families. It's also a nice relaxing place to sit and get work done throughout the day.

It is a cozy cafe with delicious food. Prices are average or higher. Located in a quiet green part of Moshi which is definitely worth driving to. You can sit both outside on a lawn under the shade of trees and inside on comfortable sofas. There is fast Wi-Fi and a playground. The chef is from Europe. The staff is polite and tidy. The owner is a big gourmet himself, so from time to time you should expect interesting updates to the menu. The menu is large, there is plenty to choose from. My favorites: four cheese pizza, tempura mushroom uramaki, ukrainian borscht (sometimes as a dish of the day), spaghetti carbonara, Sunrise as a drink. And recently they added honey cake as an option. This is the best confection you can find in all of Tanzania. If you speak about only Moshi, then this is definitely the best pizza here. The portions are very large (by European standards). Always delicious. The shortcomings are a late opening (from 11 am even on weekends) and the fact that they close early (at 8 pm). On weekends it can be crowded.

Nice place, great decor inside and out. A good selection of food and good service. I personally think it is a bit pricey for the portions you get. The food is nice but could be a little more tasty for the discerning pallet.

We have spent countless evenings here enjoying the romantically lit, perfect lawn and eating stone-fired pizza (pesto is the absolute best) and other great dishes. Highly recommended. If they’re making the sweet chili eggplant appetizer, get it!

If you are traveling with friends, your partner, or alone - Jackfruit is for everyone. Even though I was not really impressed by a couple of other cafes in town, Jackfruit pleasantly surprised me. Food was great, respect to the chefs! I enjoyed the overall atmosphere, especially at the outside area. If you are coming with kids, there is also a playground to keep your little one busy while you are having an azaming meal. Thank you Jackfruit, we promise to come back ;)
