We arrived famished and left very satisfied. We attended the brunch so there was a variety of choices. The stations were with traditional foods, grilled meat, salad, vegetables, rice, deserts and seafood. Everything was so good Nyama Mama did not disappoint..

Our daughter, who has been living in Nairobi, took us to Nyama Mama to experience some local dishes. Nice choice, with a wide variety of dishes, a relaxed ambience, and helpful staff. I'd go back again.
