When looking at the reviews for this restaurant, I was surprised that so many people had recommended it. I am not sure whether it was that we were in a large crowd, and this restaurant could not handle it, but the food was way below average. The salads were pre-made and therefore it was wilting and dry.
We had chicken, lamb, prawns. None were nice at all. In fact I had one bite of each and left it. The sweetcorn dish was quite nice if I really had to look for anything positive about the food. The desert, fruit salad, was also pre-made and therefore warm. Warm fruit salad in such hot weather, NO WAY.
We were also the only ones in the restaurant, so I'm not sure how busy they actually are. Maybe all his customers were at Mosque as it was a Friday afternoon about 14h00
We also paid KES 2500 for this.
The owner I must say was friendly.

We always appreciate our clients comments and immediately take the necessary action.
The price for this particular group (Kshs. 2,500) was very reasonable costing full meal inclusive of the beverages and 25% taxes.
We would like to apologize to the reviewer for any dissatisfaction during his visit to our restaurant but hope to see him in the near future once again and assure of our total satisfaction.
