Ambience and service at the Restaurant are wonderful and hence four stars. However for the prices charged the food should have been excellent, but it was just above average. Improve the food and it will be worth it.

Pango's always one of my favourites in Nairobi. It sits in the Fairview Hotel, and as that's opposite the Israeli Embassy, you're probably in one of the safest places in town. Food-wise, I have never been disappointed. The business lunch menu is simply the best value for money in Nairobi, with the a la carte dining more heftily priced, but... More

The pepper steak with the sauce made at the table was incredible. Halibut also tasty. The best is the atmosphere. The staff are incredible. So nice. Enjoyed a 4 hour dinner here just enjoying all the food and intimacy of the restaurant. The tiers of chocolates was such a nice way to end this meal. The best meal we had... More

Pango has always been sort of pipe dream for me. Probably the finest dining in town, or at least one of the very few. Have been there on a very special occasions in the past, it is certainly not a cheap affair, that's why. Older chef retired, and with him apparently something special gone. Let me, however, jump right to... More

A lovely setting and with very professional service but when the food came out. OMG! Such a treat, if your unsure what something is, try it anyway it will be delicious! Or else get something flambéed for the fun factor.

When in Nairobi it is very nice to have a place to relax after a long day. The Pango Brasserie will accommodate you and the staff will invite you to have a nice dinner.
