The food and service are truly superb. Combined with ambience and history, this experience was incredible. The only reason for the four stars is the expense - a little too high.

The breakfast and Kenyan lunch on Wed were excellent. The staff superb! We would recommend a garden table for dinner weather permitting.

Bad service, no variety of foods on offer, and they were out of almost all juices ordered. They staff seemed not bothered by this at all.

Awesome variety of cuisines, succulent meats and vegetarian options. Great options from around the world as well as Kenyan favourites. Keep up the impeccable service - 10/10 there. Valet service very useful.

We had one of the best breakfasts I've ever eaten at the Lord D Terrace, while staying at The Norfolk. If you are there, this is a MUST! So many choices you can't possibly try them all, but do indulge in the champagne - such a treat!!!

They do a buffet lunch from 12:00 to 15:15. Always a soup and a roast [it was veal last time: very tasty, and not overcooked]. Plus four hot dishes and 6-7 vegetables. Lots of fruit, and a range of pastries for dessert. Not cheap, at 2800, but fair value, for the quality.

My lovely wife and I had an early morning breakfast at the Lord Delamere Terrace on our day of departure. The variety of foods on offer was extensive. The fresh pancake station was a highlight, as well as the fruit smoothies. As the name implies it is situated on the hotel's outer terrace and is a pleasant casual restaurant and... More

The food was very delicious and the quantity was enough. Freshly made juice and excellent service. Pricing was reasonable.

Quite ideal for business breakfast. The setting is good as it allows sitting for various sizes of groups. The variety at breakfast also sufficient and the eggs can be done in several styles.

Food is OK - but they try and rip you off at every turn. Despite stating "inclusive of taxes" on the menus - they still slap on around 20% extra in charges on top of the already outrageous prices for pretty average food.
