I giardini di Forodhani (Forodhani Gardens in inglese), detti anche giardini del Giubileo (Jubilee Gardens), sono un lungomare di Stone Town, a Zanzibar, situato di fronte al forte arabo e al palazzo delle Meraviglie. I giardini sono stati ristrutturati recentemente a spese dell'Aga Khan Trust for Culture e dal 2009 prendono il nome di parco di Forodhani (Forodhani Park). I giardini sono molto frequentati, in particolare la sera, quando ospitano un noto mercato notturno con bancarelle illuminate da lampade a olio, in cui si possono gustare le specialità della cucina zanzibari come mishkaki (il kebab zanzibari), samaki wa kupaka (pesce alla griglia), arrosto swahili, gamberetti grigliati, tentacoli di polpo, pollo fritto, cassava, samosa, frutta, nonché la pizza zanzibarina, una pizza ripiena che è la specialità del luogo.
These neat seafront gardens turn into a bustling street food market at night. The Zanzibar pizzas and the Zanzibar Mix curry pots are the highlight. Be cautious about the stalls selling skewers as some do not look overly fresh. They are also the ones that most aggressively try to attract tourists. Best to see where the locals go and follow their example.
Forodhani garden is a night market with a Sea view along it side and also Zanzibar Sea port is just 5 minutes walk away from the garden. The garden begins operations at 4pm everyday. You will see the locals of Zanzibar swimming, diving and somersaulting in the Sea. At Forodhani garden you will find lots of assorted and different kind of sea foods, drinks etc. Lot's of people/tourist visit this place everyday. You can also get your continental dish @Floating restaurant which is the only restaurant in the garden. Nice experience and such wonderful place to visit when in Zanzibar.
It's the best place to spend time with your family and friends. You can go there alone too to refresh your mind and ponder about life. It is simply the best place anyone could ever want to visit
Great sight, sound and smells. Open ocean view with many different kinds of foods and drinks. You will get the true Zanzibar experience
Forodhani comes alive at night, with a variety of seafood and other foods, making for a great Street market. Avoid the seafood though, it will likely make you sick for two or more days. If eating out in the street, pastries, beef and chicken bitings are okay. Drinks are fine too. A visit is encouraged to experience the atmosphere.
Whilst the night market is a lovely idea all of the food particularly the skewers and seafood is crawling with flies and has been out in the open heat for a long time. The vendors are quite pushy making it very difficult to look in peace. Maybe just go for dessert or a nice drink
Amazing sunset... amazing views... amazing variety of food... Always a great destination with family, friend, alone and more
The vendors are sleazy crooks but food is nice! Need to regulate them not to swindle tourists! I chose most fresh looking skewers and when they took to warm it for me, I literally saw him changing with leftover old skewers! Also the total bill was higher than what was quoted! Loved to feed the cats there as most other tourists did too, so making like a cat sanctuary will definitely attract more tourists.
Nice outdoor ambience. Lively. Lots of food variety. Excellent sea food BBQ and fresh juices.
It Is One Of Historical Place In Zanzibar Close To National Museum Old Forty , It's A Heart Of Stone Town History. Open Place Local Food All Variety Zanzibar Cuisine Is A Lovely Place To Be..
Forodhani Gardens became my favorite place in Zanzibar. You get to taste different types of delicious Street foods of Zanzibar. It's located next to the ocean. You can have a seat as you watch and feel the ocean waves and all different types of people on Forodhani from the world and also the locals. I would recommend you to go here at night as the view is very beautiful.
The night market at Forodhani Gardens is a must do during your time in Stonetown. Dozens of vendors offer a variety of seafood, teas, sugar cane juices, and Zanzibar pizzas. The vendors are quite aggressive so get ready to haggle. During low season, some of the seafood is clearly a few days old and crisped up to mask the lack of freshness. So take your time and check out which vendors the locals are picking.
Forodhani gardens is chilled park where anyone and everyone is welcomed to chill. It had a variety of eating options with various restaurants, both low end and high end. In the evening, Forodhani gardens has a food market which gives everyone a chance to enjoy local Zanzibar food :)
