“Great Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

The shawarma is some of the best in Dar es Salaam. Coffee was good, service was great and in all a wonderful experience every time we go there. The hotspot internet speeds are pretty decent and streaming a you tube clip while you wait for your meal doesn't take too much time. Nice family atmosphere for any meal breakfast, lunch or dinner. Too bad they wont be open during the Christmas period though, closed till after the new year!

“Falafel & Veg Juice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Pleasant setting under the grape vine gazebo. The Lebanese menu with some old favorites is suitable for lighter meals. I rate this venue for business brunch or lunch. The falafel wrap is good and the full veggie juice is highly recommended. The service has improved over the years but still not up to standard if you are not a regular.

“Great environment, decent food, terrible customer service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Epi D'or is a cafe that serves a fusion of Lebanese/French/Continental cuisine. The environment with its small but lush garden is very pleasant. The added free Wifi is a great plus for some time to check emails or even write a report with a nice cup of whatever your preference.

The food/drink: The basics are good, you get your hot lattes and coffee which are all quite nice. The food however can be extremely salty. The Schawarmas are hardly anything to write home about, the sandwiches are ok, everything is just very mediocre and incredibly salty.

The real ugly is the staff, who seem completely confused (I have been there twice and on both occasions they would come to check the order several times and seem completely daft at simple comprehension). They also tend to be un-friendly and orders take up to 45 mins!

A 5 year old could probably run this place better.

There seems to be no proper management at all. I would stick to the coffee if anything but other than that, there are better places.
