Great for family settings, buddies and groups.. We got a room on the back so we didn't get the noise that comes from the disco and such. Great meal. Though I'd advise the kitchen team to try and select leaner cuts of nyama choma(roast meat) Great staff overall friendly and responsive.

Upperhill is an international zone in terms of food so if you are staying in Upperhill and want a taste of Africa, come here. The main thing is nyama choma, traditional Kenyan roast meat, best taken with ugali (cornmeal) and vegetables, oh, and beer. And don't expect a glass with that. They have other traditional Kenyan food as well. The... More

Its easily accessible both by public and private means Its absolutely the best nyama choma (roast-meat) joint in Nairobi. Been there more than 5 times and... More

This place has mediocre Kenyan food. Stewed chicken or wet fry chicken tasted like home made, skuma or greens were undercooked and bitter, beef stew and Ugali were nothing special. Motura tasted good, but made us sick (diarrhea). The chips/fries were old.

Rich in taste, rich in variety of cuisine. You get everything. I most like the exotic Kenyan dishes the served. New taste though, but was a nice experience.

Visited this place on a Sunday afternoon with a couple of friends. Unless all other places are out of service, please reconsider. The service is terribly slow. The meat is tasty though but be careful with the chicken as they will bring you the previous day's fowl patted down with oil in an attempt to fool you into thinking that... More

The buffet lunch served here on weekdays provides for a good meal for a working person who is in a hurry to rush back to work.
