Was there last night, entertaining friends from overseas. Were welcomed warmly and led to a non smoking table for dinner.

I love the Mutton Biriyaani here. Amazing taste. You won't get such a great biriyani elsewhere in Dar es Salaam. The buffet is also simply great!!

I will begin with a disclaimer that may explain my bias. Wherever I go, I always order a well done pepper steak because it’s my favourite meal. On my last evening at the New Africa Hotel, I decided to go down to the Bandari Grill located on the 1st floor and ordered what else but a well done pepper steak.... More

Having heard some good things about this restaurant we decided to give it a try. The service was slow, and the waitress served and disappeared. Is everything okay, would you like more to drink, or have some dressing for your salad? None of the above. The soup was bland, no better than some cream of Campbells, the main course average... More

As I was staying at the hotel for business I took my Tanzanian business colleague there for lunch and dinner as well as I ate the inclusive breakfast there every day. On both occasion's we were not disappointed. The food... More

My husband and a few colleagues visited Dar recently for a meeting and regrettably we were stuck at the Holiday Inn downtown (definitely a place to avoid). Two nights in a row we went searching for a restaurant close by that served great food and had a liquor license, and we ended up both nights at the New Africa Hotel.... More
