This is one of of the new Hotels in Nairobi. Its location of Karen means that it is very quite and in a a very green environment surrounded by lots and lots of trees. We decided to go there for lunch one Sunday afternoon. It seems very popular as there was not many places left to sit. Eventually a waiter got us a place to sit and we got to ordering. At first glance a the menu, it all looks very interesting and appetizing. We proceeded to order our food. I ordered the Chicken tikka while my friend ordered a steak. The food came and the steak was ok which was a bit disappointing as we expected it to be better than ok. The taste was just ok and it was not particularly super tender just average in that regard. The chicken was small and the lentils that had been promised to be spicy in the menu and thus the accompanying raita, were not spicy at all. Infact the lentils were quite bland and I had to keep adding salt and pepper. The blandness of the lentils meant that the raita was of no use and I didn't actually touch it. The chicken was ok although it was smaller than expected. For what they charge for that meal, they should at least provide slightly larger chicken pieces. I have to say I was somewhat disappointed by the food.
