My partner brought me there on the occasion of our short stay in Nairobi. Even on weekdays the place is crowdy and the atmosphere is very nice and friendly. You need a bit of a funny explanation to understand how to deal with the many kinds of meet which are brought to your table by waiters always looking for your... More

This is one of the most delicious restaurants you can visit in Nairobi. The food is so good. The salad bar is wonderful. You will eat meat until you fill down. You have to make sure not to eat anything the whole day until you go there. Finally you have to try the hot cinnamon pineapple. I can't say except... More

Truly capture spirit of the Portugese churascuro(barbecue - I would believe) experience. Definitely worth every penny, worthy competition for the local meat-oriented grill, Carnivore. Great for birthdays and impromptu celebrations. All small details from bathroom cleanliness to waiter uniform in check.

We had an office chrisms lunch and the meal was sumptuous. The service was good and i loved the fruit punch. There is lots to eat even for vegetarians. A wide selection of salads was available and a large choice of meats except for no prawns or fish today. The menu had more varieties of meats but some didn't make... More

This is the best restaurant in Nairobi. Take it from an expat who is the son of a butcher. Also a consultant in the food industry.

This is a place for all meat lovers! Don't be naive and just skip salad bar, take plate from there and put some ham. Then gauchos with meat on huge skewers will start feeding you until you turn your token to red. $30 for all you can eat meat is a good price.
