Tamambo Karen Blixen has been a regular haunt so was delighted when Tamarind moved to Karen from their CBD location. A friend was celebrating a business milestone and that was the only reason needed for a special celebration. We called directly for table reservations, however its also possible to use their website or eatout.co.ke
The restaurant is very cosy and has a section with a warm fireplace, this was very welcome as I was nursing a flu. We were well received by the maitre'd who was expecting us. Gladly accepted the warm dawa mixture with lots of tumeric offered while my friends went ahead and order from the connoisseur collection of fine wines available and settled on a mature South African variety. It was difficult to decide based on the large selection of seafood available, eventually settled on classics - grilled queen prawns, lobster thermidor and seared tuna as mains. All cooked to perfection To start, we had freshly baked bread (the garlic is my favourite), crab and soup.
The service and ambience all made for a good evening and we were well attended to on this busy evening. Must definitely head back soon.
