“Top Class Traditional Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

An oasis in the middle of Nairobi. If you want real local food at great prices then go here. They told me the President often stops by lunchtime. I can see why. Lovely food. Try the Mutoke

I ordered ugali and chicken. Was not particularly impressed with the food, however it is a clean place and definitely worth a visit.

“African food made real good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

Ranalo Foods has earned it's name from the great food that's served hot from the kitchen and the quick service from the ever busy waitstaff. What is impressive is the wide array of meals which are prepared with little spice and still maintain the natural flavors. I guess it feels like eating at home, away from home. Definitely a must-visit food joint.
