It took me a couple of months to visit Amaica as my Kenyan friends would call it "very good but very expensive". Only half of that turned out to be true.
The ambiance is acceptable even if the chairs could be more comfortable. You have a choice of either hard wood chairs or armchairs which don't make the eating very easy. But this is where the issues end.
The menu offers a very wide selection of regional, Kenyan dishes including quite unusual ones such as fried white flying ants. A must try :) We checked fried gizzards with the hottest chilli dip on the planet, forest mushrooms in peanut sauce, quail skewers with matoke banana on the side. Delicious. Go very well with Guinness.
The service was very efficient and knowledgeable about all dishes. Waiting time - 10 minutes for the starters and almost no break before main. Combined with traditional, African smile made the whole experience truly pleasant.
Final bill? USD 45 for two, including drinks. Not too bad...
Next time you are in Nairobi, ignore Carnivore with its fake African feel. Amaica rulz.
