“A tasty introduction to Egyptian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Tucked away on a back street, this is not the easiest place to find. But thanks to a taxi driver looking for an easier way back to the guesthouse, I made a note of it on the way by.

The place itself doesn't look like anything special, with an ordinary eating area and movies playing on the overhead TV, but don't let that fool you! The food is excellent! My wife ordered a breaded chicken dish in which the breading was interestingly seasoned. I ordered the mixed meat dish (chicken, beef kabob, and ground beef sausages) with rice and vegetables. The sausages were good if a little on the dry side, the chicken was tasty, but the beef kabobs were to die for! They were seasoned with something unlike anything else we'd ever eaten. We determined to try and find out what the ingredients are so we could make this at home!

Unfortunately, they don't take credit card, so be sure to bring enough cash.

“A nice and quiet birthday dinner with family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

Finding a good Middle Eastern restaurant in Nairobi is not easy. In this case, however, the reason is because Masrawy is tucked away in a side street off Ngong Road.
The ambience is charming, with the tables spread out in a large garden. The food is well prepared, though not too elaborate. The staff is friendly.
Perhaps, the menu could be a little more varied, but for our first visit we had a lot more on our hands (and plates) than we could cope with.
