This was booked by our travel agent for a 1 night stay. Food was excellent and plenty of choice on the menu. Indian and Euporean food. The rooms in the cottages were clean and big. The complementary breakfast was also good. The stay and breakfast cost a little over $300 for 10 of us. Excellent value.

A friend and I spent an afternoon in the lounge, relaxing on the couches. We had hookah, drinks and a meal. The food was delicious but a little expensive. The hookah was inexpensive compared to the US, but it required a lot of work from the server to keep it working correctly. Cocktails are pricey and very sweet. But the... More

When we were getting ready to say goodbye to our daughter recently we took her out for lunch to the Oyster Shell. The food was fresh, the service courteous and quick. A great overall experience.

I hated the decor as soon as I went into the restaurant. The outside definitely needs a landscape artist. The interior is a mish-mash of styles and materials. There is no theme and it does not blend into the building. The tables and chairs look like they have seen better days - I would use them as firewood. For the... More

Nice atmosphere, plenty of locals to talk and watch sport with. Shisha lounge if that is your thing, owners always about to greet you and appreciate your custom.

Situated in Millimani just as you enter Nakuru Town on the road by the Naivas supermarket. Great view of Lake Nakuru from the Balcony - If you love Nyama Choma do not miss this place

The curry is excellent. Admittedly my stomach has not always been in the best shape the following day but this has not stopped us coming back on a regular basis. There is a good variety of freshly made dishes. Portions are good and overall it is decent value.

If you eat the curry it's delicious. The bar is good for Nakuru.... Not great if you compare it to what's available in Nairobi.
