“Great Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Amazing place, went for dinner with my boyfriend and the place is heavenly. Food is served buffet style and there is variety of kebabs, chicken fish and i couldnt get enough of their lamb koftas....must try if you heading there.

The dessert was very limited though but i had enough koftas on both ocassions i was there so couldnt complain much. The menu tends to stay the same but it was nice to find 'extra' surprises on the biryani rice second trip around.

They dont serve alcohol i guess because is a muslim place? The juices not all that but go for the food- Amazing! Will make this place a regular

Most ideal for family settings as they got longer table set-ups but you can ask to be seated in some inner restaurant (much peaceful)

Will definitely recommend this restaurant

“Mughlai food at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

If you fancy eating Mughlai, South Asian or Afghani dishes, then this is THE place to visit. At Ksh 1350 only, you can eat as much as you can and the quality is simply outstanding. The food is so delicious that in April I ate there everyday for 23 days consecutively.

“The best halal food in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Having visited Bar-B-Q Tonight (Nairobi) on several occasions, I have never been disappointed. The food is very, very good, plentiful and put out in a nice and appetizing way the literally begs you to eat more.

due to the popularity of this restaurant, it is well advised to book your table in advance.

“excellent food at a great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Am writing this review after a few visits to B B Q Tonight.

Overall the ambiance is very comfortable and the staff make you feel at home straightaway.

Everyone is talking about the buffet - which is great value in terms of quality and quantity. But what i feel is a the hidden gem is the ALa Catre menu items, namely: the seafood BBQ items like the prawns and fish - these are mouth watering and literally to die for. Secondly is their sizzler steaks, which made proper sizzler style are so different from what is available anywhere else.

On another occasion we got to try their Sunday Brunch - which was excellent value for money and thoroughly enjoyed by the family and appreciated by the Mrs (who did not have to cook at home).

So if you want a run of the mill Indian/BBQ place then go try the other numerous places in nairobi - BUT if you want a authenticated BBQ and excellent food then go to B B Q Tonight
