Love the avant-garde menu - classics modernized like the paella and the amuse bouche. It's a menu for its international clientelle. The restaurant is fine-dining and overlooks Nairobi's Central Business District. It's got an interesting mural - etched African landscape on soapstone. Go hungry - to do justice to the meal.

A very delightful dining experience- beautifully prepared and presented dishes. Located upstairs, this is a little quieter and more exclusive than the buffet restaurant downstairs

It is rare to have a fine dinning experience in Nairobi so the corporate dinner at Mandhari restaurant was refreshing. Started with complementary bitings from the chef, then Caesar chicken salad, baby eggplant soup. There was a choice for the mains; lamb or fish. I had fish which was perfectly cooked. Desert was a choice of marbled cheese cake and... More

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

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.

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
