Dining in African Tulip hotel

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!

We ate at this wonderful restaurant many times while staying at the African Tulip. The entire staff was delightful and accommodating. The manager was fantastic! Each day he greeted us and made us feel so welcome. I really enjoyed the service that was given! For my husband's birthday the staff made a cake. It was such a nice gesture and... More
