“Elegant, Excellent food but $$$$ pricey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

First we wandered down into the wine cellar and had a bottle there before climbing the stairs to an elegant room and superb service. The food servings were modest but the taste was everything you would expect for that price. Great for a celebration but too much for a casual dinner.

“Best restaurant in Nairobi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Pango is without doubt the best restaurant in Nairobi (in its style). If you're looking for Indian food or Italian you'll be disappointed of course but if you are looking for really good fine dining food, you wlll not be disappointed!

From the moment you walk in you feel the atmosphere and the tranquile. It is just a pleasure to be there. The food is amazing and the service un-matched in Nairobi.

Be prepared to spend a bit more than in other places but its worth every shilling.

Looking for something special; order the pepper steak flambé. Superb!

“Top shelf service and gourmet food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Everything begins and ends with service. Perhaps this is a function of being in Nairobi for a while now, but the service here puts every other place in Nairobi to shame. The food is great, but it's really pricey. It is a great place for a special occasion. The ambiance at Fairview is also great as they have a beautifully manicured garden that you can take a walk in after dinner.

“There is more than one Pango!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

My friends and I were a bit confused when we visited Pango on its great reviews.
We enjoyed mid week cocktails in the lounge and watched semi naked girls dance. None of which was mentioned by any of the previous reviewers.
It turns out that there are TWO Pangos! One on Moi Av (strip club one side/actual club the other) and then there is Pango Bishop’s Rd. Great food, great service.
Just make sure your taxi driver takes you to the right place!

“A Gastronomic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

An absolute MUST for foodies! Completely unexpected experience in the middle of Africa. Michelin worthy food and service. Fantastic wine selection. Pricey, but soooo worth it.
