The quality and variety of food was amazing. For breakfast there are hot food options on one part of the buffet, cereal and cold food options on another and a person who makes omelettes and other eggs.

After a great night at the African Tulip, we enjoyed an equally wonderful breakfast at the Baobab Restaurant. The staff was exceptionally attentive, the food was great. Highly recommended!!

Well designed restaurant inside a hotel in arusha. I reached by walking in few minutes from city center; welcoming staff was efficient. Varied menù with several disces of different origin. Prices affordable, service precise and not noising. To be suggestiva and surely repeated

Food was good - perhaps shouldn't have chosen the traditional Ugali though! Was recommended against it, but felt condemned to. Excellent selection of South African wines, along with tremendous service.

We were staying in the hotel, so it was convenient for dinner. The staff stayed late to accommodate our late arrival to the hotel so we could get something to eat. We enjoyed our food so much that we did not venture out to try other restaurants while in Arusha.

I loved all the food! There was always a variety and each dish was perfectly made. They had western and Tanzanian food, as well as always having a vegetarian dish, which was important, since I'm a veggie. The restaurant staff was also friendly and attentive. Tip them well! They deserve it!
