I've avoided Moorings for a long time, as I consider a wait of 50-75 minutes between ordering snd feceiving a meal as unacceptable.

I love Moorings - amazing food and great experience right on the Mtwapa creek. Crab samosa could not have been better.

Yet again a pleasure to eat at such a fantastic restaurant. The food is excellent and good value. The staff are most attentive and nothing is too much trouble. Recommended - fish and chips - this would give any English equivalent dish a run for its money!
