The food and overall experience of eating at Fogo Gaucho is right up there among the best. Everything from the Juicy Pork Sausages to Crocodile meat is very well done and overall service is well executed to top up on the experience. Would love to visit again during my next visit.

Visited here back in August 2014 while on business in Nairobi. It's a good Brasilian style steakhouse, where you get various cuts of meats etc at your table. Service was good, and atmosphere on the evening we went was quiet and quaint. Would recommend

We come here often for special occasions and it never disappoints. The decor is nice and the waiters are smart in their gaucho clothes. When you are seated you get a hot towel to wash your hands ("the better to eat you with my dear"). Then you go to a great selection at the "salad" bar, which is far more... More

Went here in early November with a group from the dental school where I was visiting. Thought the salad bar was good, be careful not to fill up on that. All the meat and fish were good, particularly liked the crocodile. Thought the grilled pineapple witn cinnamon at the end was a nice touch too. A good time was had... More

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
