Had several business meetings and meals here. Very tasty Indian cuisine on offer. You should definitely try the chicken lollipops as a starter. Finger licking good! The waiters can get overwhelmed on busy nights, had my reservation forgotten plus took a good hour to have my meal ready. In the evenings be prepared to wait for a parking spot as...

This is quite an old establishment in Kampala. The best thing with it is the location, within walking distance from Garden City, Oasis Mall and a number of good restaurants. They also have a great Asian restaurant in the hotel courtyard so you really don't need to venture far for great food. The hotel reception and common spaces are quite...

Renovated rooms are ok, but service in the hotel and restaurant requires a lot of training. For instance when we order in the restaurant every second time they got the order wrong. The bell boys English was very poor.

We ordered the fusion food from the menu. Chinese/ Indian. Portions were massive and food was tasty. Masala garlicky chips are highly recommended if you fancy something spicy. Would definitely rate this place as a good Kampala restaurant.

The rooms are in some need of upgrading. There is a newer wing and things are OK on that side, but the older wing could use some work. In our room the hot water tank was very small so the second person showering didn't get much hot water (and not because I had such a long shower ;)). On our...
