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

I went to Sierra with a lot of expectations. I am looking for the best burger in Nairobi and we were told that their burger is above average. I was disappointed with the quality of the cheese used in the burger. I think, you should use something stronger because I could barely taste it. The tomatoes were also very cold,... More

The menu has changed and is refreshingly tantalising. I had the grilled salmon, served with a tamarind sauce which was delicate and delicious, it was served with mash potatoes that I highly recommend, the best in Nairobi. They have their locally brewed beers that are very popular, I opted for the fruit punch, again it was lovely and very fresh... More

This is an upper floor restaurant in a mall, Yaya Center, in Nairobi, a relatively hidden place. Perhaps this is the reason why it is not as full as other less valuable restaurants in Nairobi. The food - international style - is excellent and very well presented, the service is fast and the waiters are very polite. The beer is... More

The restaurant is on top of the roof, but the view is not splendid unless you stick your head above the wall. It is possible to sit outside and inside, the place is reasonably clean, toilets are ok, there was a wifi but extremely unstable. Service was not bad, the girl offered a sip of juice to taste is for... More

Sierra is a lovely place to go for drinks or for a meal. They offer a good selection of meals from their aged beef burgers and steak to seafood and also vegetarian options, not to mention their desserts. These guys know what they are doing. On top of that they brew their own beer and it's splendid! If you want... More

We have eaten at Sierra both as a family with our three kids (they love the burgers and the calamari!) as well as just the two of us for a quiet night. Really great food and very reasonably priced. The Sierra beer is very good as are the house wines, from South Africa. The servers are very good and friendly,... More

I had a quiet dinner for two here last night and as always they did not disappoint. The food was amazing and we loved everything we ordered. My compliments to the chef. Our server, Ben Odhiambo, gave us excellent service. He was very attentive and helpful.
