The restaurant is owned by a Brazilian guy and it is very close to a Brazilian "churrascaria" (steak house). There is a salad buffet with many options and the meat is served on the table. It is a "all you can eat" type of place. The quality of what is served is very good and there are typical Brazilian cuts... More

When I am really hungry, want a night out and quick fancy dinner, no chit chat, waiting for this or that to be brought to the table - this does it for me. The service is continuous from the minute I sit and flip my service card to when I go to the salad bar...the one is Westlands is intimate... More

Met up with some friends after many years and this was the perfect place to do just that. The salad menu was extensive with fresh vegetables and the meat was grilled to perfection. The waiting staff was friendly and checked on us every often. Enjoyed the experience.

The food here is amazing! And such a reasonable price, in the States there are several restaurants like this, they are at least twice the price, and not that good. We had excellent service and outstanding food! Hope to visit there again the next time I am in Nairobi!

I have been a few times to the "Fogo Gaucho" over the last 5 years. Each time I found the same great quality and have never been disappointed. Great central location, for a much better experience than the touristy Carnivore

I've been to many Brazilian steakhouses, in and out the continent, and hands down, Fogo is the best! Service is phenomenal, the options are plenty (even vegetarians can enjoy), and the meats are DELICIOUS! Overall, it was a great experience! Will be coming here whenever I'm in Nairobi.

We had some company visitors and weren't sure where to take them. Fogo Gaucho turned out to be the perfect venue. Great food, good service, very nice background music and great ambience. The only problem we had was that it was a bit too packed. Highly recommended
