“Nice Food - Excellent Karahi & Naan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

I am a big fan of this Pakistani food chain and have been to their outlets in Karachi, Lahore, Dubai, Singapore, Kuala Lampur and now Nairobi. Try their buffet option, the prices are extremely reasonable and they serve a good variety of food including both vegetarian and kebab options. We also tried the ala carte option a couple of times with karahi, daal and kandhaari naans are frequent picks. The food will not disappoint you and there is enough seating space.

The service can be a little slow, thats probably the only flipside.

Great food.. like everywhere else BBQ tonight in nairobi is also great place.. the restaurant was quite close to the hotel we were staying (Sankara Nirobi) so it was very convenient to order on phone and then get it by just walking there.. the quality and quantity of the food is good..all their barbeque items, breads and biryani are simply delicious.. the taste just reminded me of home.. a must try if you like asian food and im sure it will not be disappointing..

“Great food and great ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

We were on a holiday in Nairobi and other parts of Kenya last year and our local friends happen to take us for a meal to this restaurant. We had a great time, the food was excellent, the service super and overall it was a great night to remember.

“Satisfaction guaranteed...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

The mark of a good restaurant is not necessarily the size, but the quality of its food and the generosity of the staff.
The restaurant is located in a rather promising area. It buzzed with excited energy and was comfortably full with seemingly satisfied patrons. Theres no doubt, that this place is quickly becoming the hottest reservation in town. X

“A total rip off”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

A group of us - charity workers- visited BBQ Tonight as a get together as some of our group were leaving. I wasn't impressed by the food at all, but liked the fact we were in a room which we had to ourselves. Approximately an hour into the evening I noticed that my belongings had been stolen as had another members of our group. From that point on the management didn't really want to know and took some time before trying to sort anything out. No-one but the staff and ourselves were in the room, but nothing was done to look for our things even though we were asking them to. I had to get rather annoyed with the manager before he relented and gave me just enough money to pay for the taxi to get to the police station and back to our hotel as I had lost all my money through the theft. I would certainly not recommend this place to anyone.
