I stayed for two nights at the renovated Imperial Hotel and the rooms were very good. However, dinner during my two night stay was just awful ( as I told the restaurant manager) and since the principal Chef from South Africa left,the restaurant is almost empty and the quality of food and presentation has seriously plummeted. I order freshly grilled Talapia from lake Victoria but got frozen and rotten fish fried up with rice. I won't go into details of the second nights food. Other than to say that if the hotel wants to attract residents back to the restaurant- it needs to do something urgently and dramatically,

We had a meal here boxing day Some of the menu wasnt available and they managed to ruin a tilapia which considering its the local fish was quite an achievemnt They didnt charge for it and teh chef apologised personally but then gave us an evangelical talk about God considering this is supposed to be top reaturant in town you are better off at alocal cheaper eating place

Service was very good but the food was okay- never consistent. A little overly priced too
