This restaurant sits on 2 levels. I was meeting a friend for a late lunch on a weekday and the atmosphere was quite tranquil. Sierra has different menus for lunch and dinner complete with different pricing. It's generally pricey and while the portions are meagre owing to its fine dining niche, the... read more

Sierra is located on top floor of upscale mall Yaya Center. Like most restaurants with voluminous space, the dining room is plagued with "lack of charact" which the restaurant makes worse with a monotone grey hued interior design. However, I didn't have a chance to sit on the outdoor terrace which looked rather inviting even in the evening rain. Service... More

Outdoor veranda still makes for great place to enjoy a good book over a meal or drinks even in the rainy season.Mushroom soup was great though quantity wise a little challenge for me! Service was consistent and professional.Quite popular.

I've been in Nairobi 3 years, and Sierra continues to be one of my favorites! Sierra has the BEST burger in town, and the only pure aged Angus beef for those foodies out there- management is activity involved in the sourcing of its beef and all of its ingredients. If top ingredients can't be found in Kenya, they are imported-... More

One year later and the restaurant is still the same, great food with perfect presentation. The food here is really good but slightly on the expensive side. A reservation is needed in most cases as it can get quite full.

A friend booked a table for her birthday gathering but when we arrived there was another couple sitting in the area allocated to us. We were then forced to have our gathering around the said couple. The service was terrible and their bar was poorly stocked. They only had 2 of their beers available and had almost no wines in... More

Sierra has a well done menu and is a very comfortable place to be. I especially recommend the desserts. They are to die for. I will visit again to enjoy the desserts.

There is no doubt Sierra bar and restaurant on second floor of Yaya mall sells delicious food. I ate at the restaurant with a friend on Sunday 13 October at the balcony. The place is place is beautiful and soft jazz music rendered the whole atmosphere enjoyable. However, I would discourage a very hungry person to eat there. Although the... More
