“Doesn't live up to expectations ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Have been twice in recent weeks, once for lunch once for drinks in the garden. I get the feeling it is trying to be something it isn't anymore and at this price range one just expects more. Certainly not to sit for over 20 minutes before being served or acknowledged and this wasn't for lack of staff walking around. They were just constantly 'looking the other way'. If you want to over pay for food and drink in Nairobi there are better places to go.

“Masterfully Prepared”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

The international cuisine at Tatu in The Norfolk is masterfully prepared. The atmosphere is modern and the service was well.... almost flawless. It is pricey but well worth it.

“Good food, nice but limited selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Nice atmosphere and food was prepared well. Nice selection of snacks/light meals and more substantial dinners. Also a great place to relax and have a beer on the patio or terrace.

“Good meals with good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Sitting on the veranda adds to the ambience of this restaurant. The food was good with a good selection to cater for most tastes. The service was also very good.
