a great greeting by staff as soon as you walk in and they make you feel at home as soon as you sit down they bring over some cool towels to make you feel refreshed and feeling clean

I visited this restaurant a year ago and was very disappointed. The only reason I came back is that the hotel posted on their website that they have a new Thai chef, so I thought it was worth a try. It is such a nice hotel with generally first class service, and it is a shame that they can't extend the quality and standard to the food department. Chicken starter - ordinary. My companion's lamb - plain, boring. My king prawns - soggy. Sorbet dessert - same as before: catastrophe! Presentation of the food - below par. There was no sign of anything that could have lifted the food above what you get from your neighborhood takeaway. Service - OK, but it's the food we come for. Sorry, Oriental, but from a gourmet restaurant in one of the world's top hotel chains we expect something much better than this.

They have hired Thai chef for this restaurant and undoubtedly food was top notch.Only reason I did not give it 5 star was because of service.Food got delayed but food was worth the wait.

This is a real must for business lunches.
Excellent fresh sushi, brilliant service, amble secure hotel parking.
Have a drink on the roof top bar then down to the oriental for amazing food.
A bit pricey, but a must.
Highly recommended.

I must have tasted over 50 versions of hot and sour soup over the years, its a kind of quest!
I actually make a special trip to the (expensive) Oriental every time I am in Dar just for the fish hot and sour soup. It is the best I have tasted out side Asia.
The menu is not overly extensive so it means they are very good at what they do. The restaurant serves a mixture of Thai, Japanese and Chinese food.
Dumplings are good as is the tempura and vegetable dishes are fresh and tasty.
I have not eaten sushi here, but plenty of people order it.

The sushi bar is immaculately clean and service is attentive.
It can get busy on the weekends, so book in advance if you want to eat at peak times.
Top off your meal at the rooftop bat at the Hyatt and watch the ships go by!
