Stale bread, grumpy waiters, new waiters ,receptionists and managers every time I visit.!?The parking was well lit and expansive. The pork samosas were quite good . The atmosphere is still stunning, please work on quality of hospitality.

Came here at niece's recommendation for a family lunch before heading back to diaspora. Family waited and waited for a table, no courtesy drink offered. No one came to get our orders. We called Karen country lodge and made an alternate booking. Bottom line. Not worth the hype.

I didn't enjoy the food that much but it was ok. The music selection they have was a little boring. However they do have some good serene gardens if that's what you are looking for. And never ask for a warm glass of juice,it will be heated,say room temperature.

I had the fortunate luck to be visiting Nairobi on business and it coincided with the office Christmas lunch/party. Which I have to say I am delighted that they chose the Dari !!! We were seated outside in the restaurants extensive garden (about 30+ of us). There were several other functions (including a wedding) taking place throughout the gardens and... More

This is by far the best place to eat if you are in Nairobi. Located in the exclusive Karen area of Nairobi, Dari's has expansive gardens with deers, monkeys, peacocks, etc roaming freely. Also has a play area for the kids. Food was really great with a kiddies menu which my son loved.

Went there for lunch and the service was really good, the food was tasty and enough portions. The prices were reasonable and the gardens were beautiful. However, the quality and cleanliness of the bathrooms did not match the establishment. I expected more classy bathrooms.

The vegetarian food at Dari is hard to beat. The garden is spectacular and the owners are the sweetest most welcoming hosts and banda1 is the table to have. Hope you all have a great experience as I did and will always have.
