“Great dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

I wouldn't review the hotel (yet) as I went in specifically to their restaurant for a meal. I was impressed. From the ambiance to the friendly waiters, I felt like staying for the night. That I hope to do sometime soon.

The waiter recommended a certain dish but it failed to impress me as much as he had touted. But getting a complementary choice of another dish of my choice to wipe my tears was unexpected and pleasant.

The pork ribs are delicious and the steaks sent me back to the Steakhouses in Texas. I would recommend that steak any day.

There is outdoor seating upstairs but the view is not so grand as it overlooks a busy highway and it can get uncomfortably windy up there. The indoor seating is much better.

The servings are reasonably priced and the portions good too.

“Excellent steak!!”

Had a wonderful steak dinner here one night. Very handy when you are staying at the EKA next door. Staff friendly and service good and quick if you are in a hurry.

“An adequate meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

4 hours late due to aircraft delay so we went into this restaurant feeling frustrated and hungry. WE left feeling relaxed and refreshed. This may not be the most comfy restaurant in the world- this is not haute cuisine. However you are getting a 300g fillet mignon for KES 1400 (GBP 10 EUR 12 USD 16.50) with the trimmings. It is cooked nicely and is tasty. Lots of Tusker lager was also sunk with this but the bill for 3 was under KES 8000 ( GBP 50 etc) after gratuity- really friendly service.
We got what we wanted- a good honest fill with nothing fancy at a reasonable price- and we were very grateful for this.

“Good steakes and friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

My visit to this restaurant was good, nothing to complain about. It is inside the Eka hotel, so difficult to miss. I have been in this chain in Dubai and the food and service is similar, difference only on the ribs, as we don't have them in Dubai.
The staff is great, they were very friendly all the time, food was good, did not take long and fair price.

I am usually there once a month with one of my business associates. Great steaks, no complaints with excellent service. Try the peppamelt steak with onion rings! Delicious!
