Sizzling Nyama Choma... WOW !!!

First time at the restaurant and i was actually taken by surprise by the Sizzling Nyama Choma.... It was just perfect. Its a must next time i am in Nairobi. The place is quite with the view of the whole playing grounds, the service was good and all in all just a perfect family outing.

I think this is one of the best places to have a romantic dinner. The place has private secure and serene environment. I also liked the efficiency of the service, the waiters pay attention to detail. Some charcoal heaters are provided to the tables when the place gets chilly.

the food is not all that, most of the indian resturants in Nairobi beat it in food quality, but the price is the same as all other quality restaurants, the venue is quite hidden, for someone who does not know nairobi, you will probably never find it on your way, i would rate it an extra star for family eat...

First trip to Nairobi, and taken by friends to this restaurant at the Aga Khan Sports Club Relaxed casual atmosphere. Good selection on menu. Far superior to any Indian food have tried in Australia. My friends dine out frequently in Nairobi and say they would only take me to the best in town. I was not disappointed. Definitely recommend to... More

I have been to Legends many times and have not been disappointed. The food quality and price is of exceptional value. And the place is very open. The management and the staff are also very helpful. Fresh juices served.

They have outstanding burgers, the best nyama choma sizzler in town, amazing biryani (fridays) and by far the best gulab jamoons I have eaten to date! Interestingly enough, there were tons of clients eating their sizzling chocolate brownies which I have never tried but heard was yummy! Definately going to try them on my next visit!

Legends is a great place especially for lunch. The food is good generally although we found an insect in the salad the last time we were there and the waiter didn't seem bothered. We returned the salad. The price is also pretty reasonable. The only setback is that the service really deteriorates when they are busy. I'm not sure whether... More
