“A Relief for the Travel Weary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

After spending 10 days traveling around Kenya (safari, coastal visit, etc.) and the long ride from the JKIA airport (lots of construction on the road systems), Tamambo was such a nice delight and surprise. Outdoor seating w/ personal coal heaters made the environment very comfortable. The food was fantastic as was the service. If you prefer a sports bar atmosphere instead of the outdoor dining - they have that too with a few different TVs around showing local sports.

“Pleasant property serving good food in the middle of Karen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I’ve taken many international guests to Tamambo for lunch during our outings in Karen, and the food never disappoints. The portion sizes are generous, especially the salads, and the quality of the food has always been great. One tip - you will most likely be sitting outside for lunch or brunch, and it is often quite cold. We always bring extra shawls, but you can also request a chiminea be placed by your table. Great place to relax and enjoy a nice meal!

“delicious food in relax atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Had dinner here on two occasions, and loved it both times.
Start your evening in the bar or garden and enjoy a cocktail before going to the dinner table.
They have good variation in meals so you will certainly find something you like and they are delicious!Friendly staff and a relax atmosphere.
Do try the desserts.I recommend the vanilla icecream with chocolate fudge brownie.Yumm!
If you can't choose go for the sample platter with 5 different desserts.
