“GREAT AFRICAN FOOD”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Their service is excellent and they offer a great blend of African food, especially fresh fish. They are open till late and you will still find the wide variety they have to offer, very fresh.

“African Dishes Right in CBD.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

have had a couple of lunch meetings here and can recommend for those looking to go local in food. at times the place can be crowded and service slow. great location though and depending on what you order the experience can vary! Great place though popular with many!

“Tastefully Kenyan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Nice for those who want to go back and have a taste of the lost local cuisine. They have molten ghee for your greens and the fish/beef was well smoked before making a curry. Worth every moment and worth every penny.

“Goood fish!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

I loooove fish, tilapia, and I cant have it anywhere else in CBD apart form Ranalo formerly Kosewe. The traditional vegetables are done well and the fish comes to the table hot.
Good to have with family and friends.
