This Brazilian steak house is an experience for the senses. On offer are over a dozen cuts of meat (including crocodile). Waiters move around the restaurant with huge platters of skewered meat which they carve off directly onto your plate. Diners are given a table sticker which indicates if you would like to continue to try more food, which you... More

I have never tried Brazilian until I came to Fogo Gaucho Churrascaria. And now that I'm back in the States, I tried a well-known Brazilian place and it doesn't even come CLOSE to what I ate in Nairobi. CUSTOMER SERVICE: First off, we arrived without a reservation for a group of 6 and they were kind enough to fit us... More

For great meat on top of meat on top of meat this is the place to be. While Carnivore may be better known this place wins hands down in a taste test. Took a while for the meat to come but when it did it was a thunderstorm of delicious flesh! From wildebeest to what I believe was bull testicles... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in the world. Great atmosphere, superb service, and the food is just fantastic. With a stop/go card on the table indicating if you are ready for more, you will eat until you can't anymore. Great selections of meat, try the beef ribs - they're fantastic - and if you're adventurous you can even... More

One thing that happens with successful restaurants in Kenya is that very soon the standards slip. Not here. If anything they seem to get a bit better each time. 1st of June I went here with the wife after a month of going veggie. The meat was tender and tasty, the staff attentive (You have the card for the traffic... More
