“Fabulous Indian Food!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

Truly Authentic Indian dishes - and also some great fresh local produce. Didn't stay long enough to try the whole menu - but we will definately be back just for the Butter Chicken dish :)

“Good for dinner, excellent for breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

The hotel is a very convenient place to start a safari, and the Baobab is obviously a convenient place to eat. Our dinner there was good/very good and the breakfast buffet was excellent.

“"Real" Indian Food with Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

The service at Baobab was terrific. It was quick, without being rushed and personal. The wait staff took time to ask me about my day and offer thoughtful suggestions about things to do in the area. The Indian food was terrific! I ordered palak paneer for dinner and was absolutely delighted. Due to a very early departing flight, I also had a boxed breakfast from the restaurant. It was fine and incredibly thoughtful of the restaurant staff to prepare it. I would definitely go again.

“Good food and friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

We had very good meals in a lovely setting with friendly, informative service. The service wasn't fast, but we didn't expect that at dinner. It also wasn't slow. On our first night in Africa and we were very happy to be staying at the African Tulip Hotel and eating a good dinner at the Baobab Restaurant.
