proper fine dine experience

It gives you a proper fine dine experience - nice decor , serene location (overlooking the pool and the garden), extremely courteous and competent staff , delicious food presented aesthetically and costs you quite a bit. The variety in the vegetarian section is a bit disappointing though .

Mandhari overlooks the pool and offers exclusive fine-dining experience. It is renowned for its seasonally inspired menu and extensive wine cellar. They have something there for everyone and though it is pricey, for a special occasion, it is worth every penny and quite a romantic place to be at night.

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

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.
