Unfortunately I could not make it for dinner at Akemi so I decided to have lunch there on the last day of my stay at Dar. It has an amazing view of sea and city both. Food was good but had limited options as they were serving buffet on that day.

Substandard service. Reception, servers seemed poorly trained. Very average good, outdated ambience. The only thing I would give credit for is the view. It was a great disappointment

Centrally located in the CityCenter with an amazing 360 degrees view as you will get to see the whole city center in an hour. The staff was not very well trained but ok. The menu is with a good selection for both food and drinks. The food was ok and one shin had a meat dish was not satisfied. Ambience... More

21st floor. Tables are placed on a rotating floor so in moments your are far from the dessert buffet and in other moments your are very close. Suddenly you are sitting by the entrance and in the next few minutes watching into the kitchen. Lunch buffet was good , especially the chicken soup. Service is excellent . Definitively a place...

The view is fabulous and service is both friendly and professional. The food is nice but I would personally have preferred an a la carte version and not the buffet.

This is a great restaurant in terms of location and ambience but lacks food choices. The spread of food in the buffet has to be improved. Also dish is almost the same everyday. If they improve the variety and quality of food, this will be a great restaurant to dine with family and friends.

We celebrated my husband's birthday at Akemi, everything was perfect. I called and booked the table in advance and told them it was a special occasion so they decorated our table and we enjoyed the 360 degree views of Dar-es-Salaam city. I would highly recommend going at a time when you can see Dar es Salaam by day and then... More

Throw back to a year ago, I was backpacking and enjoying Africa as I know it, as I wound my way from Egypt down to South Africa. I was in Dar es Salaam, staying somewhere in Kariakoo. I was fortunate enough to meet a friend who then showed me the beauty of Dar es Salaam. No one ever told me... More

With a revolving restaurant I thought the whole idea was a 360 degree view but at Akemi it is a small part of the floor that rotates and there are huge walls at either end so you only get the view for a very short time. I started off with a lovely view of the harbour but after 10 minutes... More

Dear Martin, We are extremely disappointed to hear that your experience at Akemi was unsatisfactory. Due to your feedback we are in the process of reviewing our recipes for the items you've mentioned, which were unacceptable. Thank you for your feedback. Regarding our revolving floor, we can adjust the speed and have set it so its neither too fast, so... More

The Restaurant is nice for chit chats and official dinner parties. Food is average, but not bad. Price is also average.
