small, not too crowded, attached to Tamarind Apartments/Hotel

I went up to see the casino. Everyone very helpful and it was not too large. It was attached to the Hotel so it was another option to explore in the evening.

This was my first time in a casino. I went out of curiosity. For a first timer, i would say it was good. Not large and so, was not overwhelmed by everything. The staff was very helpful with teaching me the rules.

You probably don't associate gambling at a Casino with your vacation in Kenya, but the 'Golden Key' in Mombasa is a classy offering for a traveler looking to have some fun post a delicious dinner.

Love the service, friendly staff and great food! The dealers are so friendly that you enjoy your game. The best part is that it is smoke free! At least you can breathe clean air!

Nice poker action, especially tournaments - each Sunday night and also a big tournament every 6 months. But the poker room is small cramped and filled with smoke. They should move the poker room out of that tiny room and make the bar in the tiny oom, which is where you want the smoking area anyway
