Superb, prepared-to-order steak

I've been here twice. This may be the best steak I've had anywhere. I ordered mine medium rare tending to rare, and that is exactly what I got: a bit past rare but not yet medium. The béchamel sauce was delightful. A little pricey but delicious. The first time I went there I ordered the Cajun... read more

Good value for money. Limited cuisine but all freshly prepared and served. Their Greek Salad, Chicken Kiev, Wings and other menu items are good. The bar is great and ambience and service is excellent. The service is very special and there is always a manager on duty to ensure efficiency round the clock. I stayed at the hotel and found...

A regular dinner venue for the family and have never been dissaponited. Great service great food and real value for money. Steaks and chicken Kiev are fantastic. For the cilli lover just ask them for their hot chilli sauce to add on anything ordered

This is a small friend guest lodge, great if you need to be close to town. Quite little restaurant, which sadly lacks much natural light. rooms are basic but cosy.

I was greeted with the usual warm welcome and thoroughly enjoyed my Milimani Steak with pepper corn sauce. What a treat and a must-have if you are a meat eater. Nothing is too much trouble for the...

This is the worst hotel experience ever. I stayed at Milimani Lodge based on a Safari organised by Tanzania Serengeti Adventure Ltd. The first night, there was no hot water. I was told to wait until the morning since other customers have already consumed all of it. The second night, I was at their expensive restaurant waiting for a full... More
