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

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

I must say that one should definitely try if he like scenic view. Food and drink are available in mid price range. Thursday and Fridays are full so do reach here in time say like before 8 pm.

Attended Akemi with work colleagues for a wrok dinner. Easy taxi ride from the Protea hotel courtyard (cost was $10,000 shillings each way). 21 st floor - night views over Dar Es Salaam were sensational. We got there very early and as such were the only ones in the room. The main dining room is huge, and very well appointed.... More

Decor is modern, food is tasty and large portions, but not exceptional. Wide menu selection and some creative drinks. You have a good view of the harbour, but go before sunset. The city skyline does not have many lit buildings so not a lot to see after nightfall. Takes over 90 min to make a full turn in the restaurant

Stunning breathtaking views from the top of Dar Es Salaam, I loved every aspect of my recent visit to Akemi. From the beautiful romantic setting, super friendly waiter service and generous meal portions. Loved, loved, loved the spicy prawns....keep it up Akemi. Can't wait to return to beautiful Tanzania

Thank ziaesam
