The Imani dhow serves international cuisine which includes seafood and vegetarian. We tried the pan fried snapper and vegetarian curry. Both dishes were delicious. The waiter was polite and efficient. Prices are on the high end for Kenyan standards however, the quality of food is good.

Few visitors to Kenya appreciate the quality of the hotels and restaurants available and in particular the level of service provided. Having travelled extensively around the World I can honestly say that this restaurant... More

I would happily recommend this restaurant to anyone. I have never paid the bill there myself, so I cannot comment on the value, but the service and surroundings are lovely and the food is very good indeed. I particularly enjoyed the lobster.
