“Exemplary Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

I took my wife out to dinner at the Karen Blixen tamarind . I would say that they have very good customer service and some excellent dining too. Must recommend the hotel's amazing sea food and some exquisite salmon dishes. The ambiance was also great with very soothing music.it's definitely the place to go for an intimate dinner!

“Dining at its best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Cell phones are taken from one to ensure one has a peaceful meal time. Food is excellent as is the service! Tables are private and the music is just oh so tranquil. The treat is when a plate with your name written on it in chocolate is brought to you with a slogan. Mine was so befitted for my current situation. Simply loved it!

“Not quite the coast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

It feels a little sterile compared to its big sister at the coast but the food remains fantastic with all the fresh seafood you can eat

“The service is amazing and most importantly the food is great.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

I love their seafood. The new interior at the Tamarind Rest, Mombasa is lovely, and to top it off a breathtaking sunset view overlooking the old town.
