Honestly I feel like that the place is over hyped. First the location is not all that, since the entrance of the restaurant is near a bus stop and the buses and matatus like to block the entrance and someone who doesn't know the place can easily miss the entrance. parking is also an issue since the inside parking lot...

For those seeking for a Brazilian experience in the heart of the city then Fogo Gaucho is the place of choice. The meats are tasty and the desserts great. for meat lovers you get the opportunity to each as much as you can for a fixed menu price.

If you have worked up an appetite, Fogo Gaucho is certainly the place to go! Not only is the food plentiful, but it is also very tasty. I was blown away with the salad bar and honestly could've just eaten the delicious salads the whole evening! The variety of protein was like something I've never seen before - steak, prawns,...

The salad bar was good. Fresh veg ok assortment. The meat was just OK. The beef sausage was very good, beef top loin also. All other cuts was mediocre. Caipirinha was excellent The service was very nice but meat came too fast. Would come back, especially if you don't have frequent opportunities to go to a churascaria.

I really am lost for words. This place is absolutely amazing. The salad bar is properly stocked and the Meat buffet is the climax of the experience here. Fantastic service especially by the brazilian staff. Kudos to Clifford (kenyan) for the extra effort of making us more comfortable. He was outstanding. The meats here beat any other brazilian restaurant out... More

We dine as a family on a regular basis at Fogo Gaucho. The service is very good and the meat and salad are of a very high quality. All for a very reasonable price. When we are here, we feel a little bit like we are in Brasil. The more when the owners pass by for a chat in Portuguese.... More

My Saturday night out at Fogo Gaucho was laden with a variety of mouth watering Brazilian steak with salad,sausages, and chilled cocktails plus dessert which consisted of extra sweetened warm slices of pineapple, all at an affordable price! Can't wait for my next steak out Saturday:-)

The Fogo Gaucho offers the typical Churrascaria experience with a lively atmosphere a good selection of side dishes and an all-you-can eat quantity of varied meats. Go there for a nice fun evening but not to taste the best meats in Nairobi: its quantity versus quality in that area (but don't get me wrong it was not bad, just average).

I recommend this place if you have a big appetite for meat. Don't be thrown off by the tacky interior.. You visit here if you want to be fed well.
