“Delicious food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We've been to Abyssinia a number of times and keep going back. It's one of our favourite restaurants in Nairobi. The food is delicious, the service is good and it's good value for money. We always sit in the garden area which is really relaxed and we try to go with a group so that we can order a large share plates (at the back of the menu) and try a bit of everything. I highly recommend it!

“stunningly good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

One of our local expat friends turned us on to Abyssinia and we couldn't have been happier. Tucked away in a quiet shady grove near Muguga Green, it's a delightful little world of its own, with excellent food, great service and the lovely smell of frankincense wafting through the air. Best of all, it's outstanding value for money. Can't wait to go back!
