Won't be going back! Super charming and amazing garden with absolutely mediocre buffet fare. Imagine bony stews, overcooked vegetables and you'll see the point.

The food here is good but it is the service and ambience that make it great. The servers and manager were very attentive. (Just know that service is slow at most places in Kenya.) Make sure to eat outside in the garden. There are peacocks...More

The restaurant has been built at the edge of a natural spring, in the middle of this indigenous forest with utmost sensitivity to environmental conservation. We did our landscaping with hand wheel barrows to reduce vehicular foot print in the forest. Our well maintained lawns can host up to 4 functions at the same time, totalling to 1700 pax. We also have an ample secure parking facility. One of Dari's best secrets lies in the gardens which is patrolled by beautiful Thompsons' gazelles, Impalas, Dik-diks, Bush babies, Tree hyrax, Tree squirrels and birds like peacocks, cranes, hornbills, sunbirds to name a few.
