Currasceria style, with a big salad bar. The meat is very well done and not of best quality. However, it is a nice place for a team dinner.

Fogo Gaucho located just off Westlands in Nairobi is a nice place. I would recommend it strictly for meat eaters wherein you get to eat all the standard meat plus crocodile meat. It has a nice ambiance but I felt it was priced high. A buffet only costs 1650 KES and buffet + barbecue costs 2150 KES. Ideally they should... More

They do not have much to offer for the vegetarians. But yet, it is a good place to chill on a saturday afternoon with friends, and ofcourse if you have meat eating friends, they would love this place - or so i hear!!!!!

This was a great place to go. It has unique side dishes and lets one pick whatever is desired. The meat was cooked appropriately and was very good.

Excellent service and food.. the one down would be the smell of the restaurant but it grows on you while you're seated and indulging your meal. Great assortment of fresh leaves and salad collection not to be missed.

We arrived on a fairly busy night without a reservation (not recommended) but the staff were adaptable enough to arrange seating for 5 of us. Style is typical of the Argentinian or Brazilian barbecue restaurants that are enjoying popularity around the world. "Stop/go" indicators are used to signal the waiters that you are ready for more food. The salad bar... More

This is a meaty place and since we ordered in advance i cant tell if their service is quick or not but it seems so. Friendly atmosphere bustling and businesslike but rather congested tables and can be quite crowded. Food enjoyable.

Thank Roselyn A
