I did not stay at this hotel. I did come here to enjoy a wonderful dinner and show. The food is served in style similar to Fogo Deo Chao. The food was great. Besides the norm, I ate crocodile and ostrich. Of all the meats, I think the crocodile was the best.
This next point is extremely important. The African Cultural show starts at 9 p.m. (at least it did this particular night). You should arrive around 8 -- 8:15 so you can enjoy the food and then sit back and watch a marvelous show. I was truly impressed! If you come too early, you might miss the show. Try to sit towards the middle the tables near the front. If you sit at the front tables, you are not able to see all that is happening towards the back of the stage.
We visited this place, this past July (which is Kenya's cool season) so sitting outside was extremely pleasant. The trip to get to this restaurant is worth it.
Don't leave immediately, when it is over. Stay around to have your picture taken with the dancers. The dancers invite the guests to come up on the stage to sit on a bench while the dancers sit and/or stand around you while the picture is taken.
There are few places that I would revisit in Nairobi, however, next year, when I return, I will bring my friends to this place. It is really that good.
