“Great place for a special occasion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

One of the best restaurants in Nairobi. Clearly a fan of this place, but you do pay for it. Pango is pretty pricey, but they do deliver with a solid menu and great service. I've been a few times and don't think I've been disappointed yet. It's also a great place for a special occasion. If you do get there early, try having a drink in the wine cellar. A fun way to start off the night.

“Excellent food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

This is such a great place to come and get away from the hussle and bussle of the city. The gardens are wonderful, the food is exceptional and the service excellent.

“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.
