We ate at the Pam two nights while staying at the Hyatt. The food was very good. Fish very nicely prepared, Good vegetable dishes. My colleagues enjoyed noodle and rice dishes. The 2nd night we had sushi and enjoyed that as well. Very nice ambience and service. Upscale restaurant but reasonable priced against US $.

Decided to have a dinner there. Was welcomed and escorted to a seat. Ordered Salmon sashimi and fried rice. Sashimi had a great presentation. Very tasty. Fried rice portion was a bit big for me after I had to sashimi. Still was great. Very attentive and friendly staff.

We dined there because there was a special Indonesian festival. The chef especially came from Indonesia. The staff is professional, the atmosphere in the restaurant is pleasant and the food is very tasty. There are not many Indonesian ingredients we can buy in Tanzania. It appeared that the chef had brought some from his country in order to make authentic... More

Thanks to the F&B director Carlos and team we arrived at 8 pm and were out an hour later as everything was ready when we came. Well done to everyone and food/service... More

I visited this restaurant a year ago and was very disappointed. The only reason I came back is that the hotel posted on their website that they have a new Thai chef, so I thought it was worth a try. It is such a nice hotel with generally first class service, and it is a shame that they can't extend... More

They have hired Thai chef for this restaurant and undoubtedly food was top notch.Only reason I did not give it 5 star was because of service.Food got delayed but food was worth the wait.

This is a real must for business lunches. Excellent fresh sushi, brilliant service, amble secure hotel parking. Have a drink on the roof top bar then down to the oriental for amazing food. A bit pricey, but a must. Highly recommended.
