We were in Nairobi for two birthdays in our party and chose Tatu from the recommendation by the staff at another hotel! Glad we did. Avocado/asparagus vinaigrette was new to me and my wife had a new experience with the giant prawns from Mombassa -- truly unique flavoring. Actually, the entire party Loved all their food except the tomato soup... More

The Tatu restaurant is very welcoming, inside the Norfolk Hotel. It serves excellent beef from a local breed of cattle, well presented and delicious.

We selected with my colleague Tatu restaurant for dinner, tasted their famous steak, and no regret, the service was excellent and the food quality was just perfect. It was a great experience, and while it is not cheap, the quality is clearly very high.

A great place for a good Angus Steak. Cooked just right, medium, juicy and tender. Melted in my mouth. Go out to the patio area. Great cocktail menu. Wife had a few to many cocktails.

Service was excellent, but food did not come as ordered. Fillet steak medium rare came medium to medium well no red or pick at all. Fish of the day was overcooked.

I have been to Tatu many times and it is always a great experience. Quality of food is great, and constant over time. I like a lot the meat, properly aged and cooked. If you go, take some time for a drink at the cin-cin bar, and enjoy the garden and the relaxing atmosphere of this old colonial hotel. A... More
