“Above average hotel restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2013

The Palm is the main restaurant at the excellent Hyatt Regency Kilimanjaro in Dar Es Salaam. (Their other restaurant, the Oriental, is fancier, more expensive, and with a menu more focused on seafood – definitely worth a visit.) The Palm is comfortable, but without the same ambiance – essentially one large dining room with dividers to break up the space. It features an unusually good buffet, themed for weekday dinners. An a la carte menu is also available. Service is good, and on one visit the head chef (whom I happened to ask about the steak) went out of his way to give me exactly what I wanted. If you like chocolate, don’t miss the chocolate truffle cake with raspberry sauce. Superb! When staying at other hotels I will sometimes come to the Kilimanjaro to eat dinner at the Palm, which I certainly cannot say about most hotel restaurants.
