“Great fresh food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

If you want to eat fresh water fish in Nairobi, especially Tilapia, this the place to go to. You will enjoy fresh Kenyan delicacies and it is worth the visit. The staff are friendly and the service is fast.

“Second trip to Nbo and couldn't wait to eat here again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Great place to try true Kenyan fare and great prices. Choices are served up quickly and everything arrives hot. Try the tilapia, goat, wet beef, ugali and kale are an all around delicious experience. Wash it down with a Tuskers and you have a perfect evening.

Music is a little loud in the dining area if you want to talk, but adds to the total experience if you want a night out.

“It was ok but limited”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

The place was clean and nice. The menu was a little limited but from what I was told we went at a late time so that meant limited food selection. But the food was good.
