A typical Serena hotel restaurant with elegant décor and food well prepared and well served. The lunch buffet is as usual way too much food but everything I tasted was quite properly done and tasty. The restaurant looks out onto the pool in a sunny day very pleasant experience

Great evening and excellent food. The ravioli, Red snapper, and the rack of lamb absolutely perfect. Service excellent. Will return soon. Thank you the Mandhari team.

Had a great business dinner here. Food was very good and the service was exceptional. The smoked rack of lamb was among the best I've ever had

Had dinner with a large group of business colleagues. Started with drinks on the terrace overlooking the beautiful pool, then inside for a first class meal. Highly recommend the octopus ceviche starter with grapefruit and avocado. Meal included an amusebouche from and some mini pastries to start and end on a high note. Everyone was very pleased with their food.... More

I have frequented the Mandhari many times for lunch and dinner with friends, family and business colleagues. I was there last night with friends once again and really loved the introduction of new dishes on the menu. They have added some really special options for fish, meat and veggie lovers alike. We had a super meal, great service, fantastic wines... More

Service wasn't rushed and the flow was smooth. Delicious amuse geule from the chef, starters included a creamy mushroom soup - divine and the rack of... More

One of my highlight of staying at the Nairobi SERENA is the dinner at the Mandhari Restaurant. The service and the food is of very very superior quality. I would easily rate this in my top 5 restaurants in Africa. The food is consistent and not overly priced. Would i recommend this as the best restaurant to eat in Nairobi... More

It does not get any better than this. Has been our favourite restaurant for almost 20 years (for a special treat), and our 26th Wedding Anniversary was no exception. We used to go in the old days for the Jazz Brunches on Sunday, but sadly they have fizzled out. Why does nobody know about this place? it does not deserve... More
