Very nice roof top restaurant. Comfortable seats, great food, friendly and quick service. Also great for small children. I saw them providing high chairs to a family with three under 5's. They also have a play area at one end, far enough away that it doesn't disturb the other diners. Would definitely go again.

Mambo Italia on the first floor at Galleria. I would visit this mall and just ignore Mambo Italia. I was missing alot. Best pizzas in town. Thin base the way I like it and not oily. Home delivery(with conditions). Each visit I try something new and hope to walk through the whole menu I like the way they keep the... More

We looked into this. This reservation was back in early August. The devil is always in the detail, and in this case, this is what happened: you reserved the table for 7.30pm and turned up about 2 hrs later at 9.15pm. We made efforts to contact your party in the intervening time but at 9pm, we had to give your... More

Not a traditional pizzeria, but one with a more quirky approach. They offer your staple pizzas and then improvise, some of the menu offerings include Thaifrican (satay sauce, mangos) and Zanzibar curry-inspired pizza. Overall, the food is tasty and served in large portions. The decor is Nairobi staple - rooftop, heaters, wicker furniture. It's fast gaining popularity as a good... More

I really loved the roof top experience, the furniture was simple but tasteful.The pasta with roast chicken was amazing from the presentation to the taste and the cost. The wait staff offered excellent service. If you are there on a hot sunny day you may want to be careful about where you sit because you may be in the sun... More

Mambo Italia is a welcome addition to the Lavington restaurant scene. Wonderfully decked out, very welcoming and with staff who are eager to please, the restaurant adds to this foundation with really good pizzas and pastas. The spicy calamari starter is very good and we would strongly recommend the Parma pizza! Mambo also deliver to your home - a godsend... More

Mambo Italia has the best pizzas ever in Nairobi and they make them exactly to your taste, no mistakes made! Their salads are really worth every penny and so fresh. Great service is given and they also have a very efficient delivery system. I highly recommend this place.
