We have been to Talisman many times since we have moved back to Nairobi and never been disappointed. Whether it's a special, or the to-die-for feta & coriander samosas and chilli sauce, the food is excellent. Also, in terms of comparing to other Nairobi eateries -Talisman's quality and service are consistently good -not always a guarantee here. The garden is a lovely spot -kid friendly- and the restaurant is stylish and comfortable. Also a bonus-they often have different local artist's art work on exhibit. It's a bit pricey than other places -but worth it for what you are guaranteed. The only downside is that to get there (from town) you have to travel ngong road with horrible traffic often -so plan accordingly! I definitely recommend it as a lunch or dinner spot.
