First visit saw us having a snack entre size, the prawns being tough and uninteresting. Second visit we had a main meal each and it was delicious. Everything trip advisor contributors had described. The neck massage went well for free and we would have loved to pay for a fuller massage on our backs after our first safari, but this... More

This is a chic restaurant inside the Sarova Stanley hotel where we were staying and we had just checked in waiting for our room so we decided to walk in for lunch with our 2 year old (children only allowed on weekend lunches... lucky us). The food was served quickly, was of good quality and the setting is nice. We... More

The Food i ordered was pretty decent . the salad fried rice etc.. The service was excellent. The place is a bit over priced for the quality. So if you dont mind the price..then go for it.

We asked our taxi driver to take us to an Asian restaurant and he brought us here. We ordered several plates of food which we shared between ourselves. All the meals were amazing. We really enjoyed the food. Elegant setting and lovely service as well. Well done.

I had my dinner at this resturant in Sarova Stanley and was really disappointed. Although the ambiance is quite nice, the service I received, was terribly poor and the quality of food was not what I expected. I want to believe perhaps it was my wrong choice of dishes?? I will think twice before I return to this resturant for... More

We came without reservation and were actually a bit taken aback how empty the place was, but the ambiance was great so we gave it a shot. And to sum it up: it was excellent. Very kind and attentive service, too. I must admit, I wasn't quite expecting it to be that good. 4.5 points if I could select that.

Now this is just unique! Cosy ambiance and just the most sumptuous food on earth. Definitely good for a date, but also good for family With valet parking, it is convenient and the experience begins there. Step into the hotel and walk past the colonial bar and enter the restaurant. Superb service and a lovely menus of delectable dishes. The... More

Easily one of the best restaurants I've eaten in. The reviews are spot on with regard to food, service and ambience. We ended our safari at this hotel and didn't feel particularly keen on venturing outside. Save some reasonably smart clothing as no shorts or sandals permitted. Not too expensive by UK standards and very high quality, beautifully presented food.... More
