I am a vegetarian who came to this restaurant with a group of co-workers. I would not have come here by my own choice. There was a large buffet that had more than enough for me to choose from. The meat lovers thought the restaurant was brilliant. Waiters Continually brought around skewers of 12+ different types of meat. We had... More

Ate with a group of men for lunch. Amazing food and great atmosphere. The cinnamon roasted pineapple and fried bananas are a must! The best meat was the garlic beef.

Went there this year for our anniversary, it is still the best meat in town. The staff is friendly and the value still good for money.

This is a nice place to visit if there are a lot of you but I would say the standard or meat was poor. The best was probably the sirloin steak. I was hoping for some nice ribs but was pointless having then as there is no meat on them.. Cinnamon pineapple dessert was good

I really like this restaurant, the meta is very nice, the salad buffet is very continental and recently they have added Kenyan food (ugali, irio, sukuma wiki, etc...). It is a perfect place for residents and tourists, they even serve cocrodrile!! The service is very kind as well.

There was so much meat - different types - and we had an unending string of waiters serving our table to ensure we had our fill of the variety on array. Food was really tasty and service good. It was my... More

Was crowded when I went there. A good place for groups. One of my favourite restaurants in Nairobi. They have a large variety of meats and salads and the dessert (cinnamon pineapple) was yummy!
