This restaurant is reputed to have the best steaks in Nairobi. It did not disappoint as they were excellent. The wine list was also decent with a good selection of international wines.

Held a meeting at the Norfolk - incidentally they have one of the most responsive business managers in Nairobi - and wanted s group dinner to round off the day. Tatu was he perfect solution. They handled multiple dietary needs and provided a varied menu of well cooked dishes. There are certainly more exotic restaurants in Nairobi but they do... More

I recently spent some time in Nairobi. Had a lovely dinner at Tatu, the fine dining restaurant of the Fairmont The Norfolk Hotel. Lovely interior decor, excellent wait staff and outstanding food. A wonderful wonderful dinner. Commenced with an Asparagus & avocado starter, followed by a New York striploin steak. 2 glasses of South African Shiraz complemented the meal perfectly.... More

I went to Tatu for the first time this year. Thankfully Tatu is a much better restaurant than it's sister restaurant -the Lord Delemare Terrace. We had a delicious meal made with quality food and terrific flavours. The menu itself is thoughtful and chic and left me wishing I could taste more items! I appreciated that the portions were a...

My wife and I went to dinner two nights in a row because there were so many dishes we wanted to try! The service was very attentive and our server was engaging and made excellent recommendations. A "must" is the Beef Soup! My only regret is not purchasing the wonderfully unique table decorations at the local market.

The service here takes you back to what service is really about. the little things that one forgets like having your chair pulled out for you and your napkin placed on your lap as you sit by the waiter. The way the menu is presented and the way you are treated the whole while youa re there. beautiful!
