Of all the restaurants I tried in Dar, this is by far the most upscale and probably the best in terms of food quality and service.

it's a nice hotel to go to if you prefer the finer things in life. It's nice for a drink in the evening too. Definitely not a place to go when you're on a budget, daring mid range travellers might manage by the bottomless pockets will be able to enjoy all the hotel has to offer

I visited Kempinski with friends, the ambiance is GREAT! The food can be mediocre, some really good...mostly mediocre, the pastries are good and really good another time...hence my average rating...When it comes to service, it's stellar!! It is very expensive...i guess we are paying for the ambiance?

I usually visit the Kili when i have visitors from abroad. The food at the oriental and continental restaurants is fantastic because all my visitors have liked it. I recommend others to visit, though the price could be on a higher side.
