The Baobab Restaurant offers a wide selection of continental, Tanzanian and Indian food. The local fish was delicious, as was the Chicken Muknee (Butter Chicken), the Tandoori Chicken, the Tanzanian Salad and the Indian Naan. Portions were quite generous and enjoyed by all! Service was also sensational. The Baobab has a relaxing, casual elegance atmosphere and is fantastic!

We enjoyed the Breakfast Buffet that came with our rooms; food was delicious, ample and had a nice presentation. We decided to eat dinner there our last night in Arusha and had the most delicious meal. They offer a vast amount of traditional, local and Indian foods. The Indian food (butter chicken, chicken marsala, naan and rice) was so tasty... More

I loved this restaurant the minute I walked in since we were well welcomed by a friendly waitress. Since we were a large group, she did her best to quickly set the extra spaces on the table as we sat down. They have a menu with different cuisines including Indian. The lady was very helpful and she took her time... More
