If you're not very hungry, ask for something smaller, e.g. shawarma. Definitely worth checking out, if you want... read more

Rayan makes food that is really filling and fresh. The servings are very large and it is best to come on a really hungry stomach. The food is mainly non vegetarian. The service is fast. On the down side however, the restaurant needs to improve on cleaniliness. Maybe hire professional cleaners.

I was looking for Halal restaurant till I found this . I like the food and the atmosphere there , hard to find a table at lunch time . A wide variety of African dishes plus good location near Kenyatta avenue and the city center . Prices are reasonable .

I thought I should look for a place for a quick bite while in Nairobi on a rainy Wednesday evening. Turning the corner I saw this place and thought, why not? So I popped in and immediately noticed that it specializes in Somali cuisine. I ordered for their delicacy, which was goat meat that had been roasted then deep fried.... More
