“Nice location and good food”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

We've eaten here twice now and I like the grounds and the relaxed atmosphere because when we come with our 3 year old we can keep her entertained while waiting on the food by walking around the pathway. The sweet and sour soup is very good. The flavor and spice are what you expect but with more vegetables in it. We ordered the cheese fondue last time we were there but they didn't have the cheese so we ordered the meat fondue. We were not disappointed. The meat was lovely tender Kenyan beef, such a nice change from the normal tough beef you get here. The staff don't tend to return to the table to see if you need anything else but at least the do stand facing you from across the room so that you can get their attention. There is a beauty shop and massage area on-site with excellent services. I had a pedicure there on my last visit. One of the women used to work at the Ngorongoro Crater Lodge so she is very good.

“good atmosphere but ..”
Reviewed 18 June 2012

it was a good place to stay but lots of mosquitoes. We dined at a couple of restuarants but we highly recommend the Shanghai chinese restaurant downtown. Their food was organic and closer to home. But it was really peaceful and calm to stay.

“Great Gardens and Setting”
Reviewed 25 March 2012

While in Arusha Tanzania we went to the Flame Tree Restaurant for a lunch meal. The setting is quiet and nice and the gardens are beautiful. I recommend sitting in the garden bar . . . the main dining area can get very loud and noisy. The food is good and it is a nice break to have well prepared Chinese food and a decent price. Not the best restaurant in Arusha but adequate.
