Description: A celebrated fine-dining experience, Mandhari offers an unusually diverse yet intuitively chosen menu that has been designed to showcase the talent of our Chef and the diversity of our local, regional and international dishes. And, as you might expect, our menu is supported by an exceptionally comprehensive wine cellar.

Great unparallelled service and ambiance. Expect the usual great standards that Serena hotels has come to be associated with . Kudos for consistency over the years .

The menu is extensive and the staff are friendly, courteous and professional. In that respect, Mandhari cannot be faulted. In terms of the food, the presentation is superb and the chef friendly and willing to accommodate specialised dietary needs. However, whoever is responsible for the recruitment and subsequent training of the kitchen staff should really update their knowledge base. Dishes are created seemingly without recourse to seasoning of any kind and all taste the same - flavourless. It's normal to use herbs and spices to bring out the best flavour of a dish but the African chefs at Mandhari cook food in the African style - with no creativity. If I wanted something tasting like ugali and sukuma wiki, I'd order ugali and sukuma wiki. Sadly, what could have been a delicious Red Snapper dish tasted of oil and cardboard, because no seasoning was used. For the extortionate prices Mandhari charges, better is expected. Suggest the head of training speaks to chefs at restaurants like the Delamere Terrace, Thai Chi and Bhandini for advice on how to cook properly. I can do better at home in my own kitchen.

I was craving Indian food and we tried the mutton and prawn curries. We probably picked the wrong ones because the gravy/sauce seemed to be the same but it was tasty and spicy. I like that they give you naan (bread) and rice with the dish

Eggs and waffles made to order. Lovely lattes and all of the fresh fruit, yogurt, lox and breads that you could want!

Good food and excellent service, but a bit stiff atmosphere. I prefered to eat downstairs in the regular restaurant.
