It was a lovely evening, we started off at the cocktail lounge with a glass of bubbly. Before we knew it, it was a second glass and had not even looked at the menu! 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

The staff were excellent as they were attentive without being overbearing. The meals were superb! Well cooked and flavorful, and they were served piping hot, just as I like it! There were no complaints from anyone on the table and we all had different main courses. I would definitely recommend.

I had to write a review as soon as we got home from visiting this restaurant. My boyfriend and I are both interested in food, and we were both blown away by this place. The service, the atmosphere, the quality of the food, and the willingness to go that extra mile for the customers. They really hit "bulls eye" here.... More

A evening at Mandhari is sheer joy, pleasure, elegance, you name it! Having dined here over a dozen times, I'm still a great fan because attention is paid to the minute details that make fine dining what it is. The staff, the service, the food and choice of food and beverage is delectable. My experience last Tuesday was delightful and... More

I eat here often when travelling and like the hotel it is situated in, the restaurant is very well run. Great curry options - nothing searingly hot, but tasty and served beautifully. Try the lamb and the spinach and cheese options... both sublime!

Open till late, cozy and arm inside as Nairobi is a bit cold at night in June. Nice staff and likely to meet high heeled Nairobians here for a quick chat without having to first secure an office appointment.

Serena lives up to its reputation of giving good service. The waiters were very well trained and attentive. I loved the starter of chicken consomme with quail egg, it was very nice. Ambiance is very good for dinner.
