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

Quite often in Dar es Salaam, but this time had a stop over in DAR and called the hotel from Mozambique to reserve table and place the order. 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.

I must have tasted over 50 versions of hot and sour soup over the years, its a kind of quest! I actually make a special trip to the (expensive) Oriental every time I am in Dar just for the fish hot and sour soup. It is the best I have tasted out side Asia. The menu is not overly extensive... More

Went there quite often with friends or clients. The food is perfect, their salmon is exquisite. The service is fast and the waiters are taking care of you, might you be a group of 10 or just a couple. The wines are fine if you are ready to pay the price but are worth it. Would totally recommend.
