I had the best time here. The nyama choma (grilled goat) was simply delicious. The Tuskers were extra cold and a perfect pair for the charred meat. The people and staff were a lot of fun. I went with friends and we had a great time laughing and talking politics

I see this place full of cars whenever I pass by it, so we decided to give it a try. I have had nyama choma at a few places in Nairobi and this is by far the worst of all. The goat meat was fatty, chewy, and full of gristle. The chicken was undercooked and blood started oozing out when... More

I have had takeaway Nyama Choma from here a couple of times and am not enough of an expert to compare it to much else. It was meaty - and chewy. I think that means it was just right. Popular and busy place.

Njuguna's is a land mark for nyama choma lovers in Nairobi, being right on the Highway with a very informal setting, the meat is always tasty, been these way for years. I returned after a long time and sure enough the same service

We had lunch with a few friends who wanted no fuss experience. The place specializes in grilled meat 'choma' as it is known in Nairobi! They also do boiled or fried meat and we had the latter, It was soft and full of flavor. If are pressed for time do call in advance & place your order!

Went here with work at lunch time on a Friday. If you go on the weekend, try to book your meat, otherwise you could be waiting a while, depending on how many there are of you. There were 8 of us and we got 5kg of goat (has to be goat), we got 4kg of ribs and 1kg of shoulder... More

Its basically a big shack on the side of a busy road. Serves Nyama Choma (roast meat) which is not bad. However there are better nyama choma joints in nairobi (eg Maxland which is just down the road or Kenya Continental Hotel in Westlands)
