The first time we came here was a couple years ago and we had a nice experience, so we took some friends for dinner. Everything on the menu costs three times as much as other restaurants, ridiculous. My husband's steak was way under-cooked, he had to send it back. My order came without a main ingredient, which they didn't tell... More

This is a top class restaurant. Great food, great timing, great atmosphere, great service. The tomato soup is a must, perfectly condimentes and balance. I tried the tuna steak and it was amazing. Book in advance if you are joining with 3/4 people.

We had lunch at the Tatu Restaurant. It is modern with an Africa team woven into it giving it a luxurious feeling without being over the top..Food was great.

The pros : nice and comfortable seating, fairly quiet restaurant, good service even it could be a bit faster. The cons : meat selection, taste and cooking requires serious improvement

I ate here early in the evening, and had the place to myself. I enjoyed everything about this restaurant. The ambiance is hip and comfortable. The service is impeccable. The food is delicious. There's a good wine list and there also appeared to be a good cocktail menu as well, although I stuck to the wine. Before my meal arrived,... More

Our reservation had not made it into the book, but the restaurant was empty and we were seated. Then, three or four servers asked to take our drink order which never arrived until we asked a fourth server. The meal was good, but not memorable.

After about a month in Kenya I was ready for a splurge on a really nice dinner and Tatu, at the Norfolk Hotel, is exactly what the doctor ordered. They come recommended for their steaks and that's what I went for. Ruth, the hostess was most gracious, and my waitress, Salome, was extremely helpful and explained the different cuts, and... More

I was in Fairmont and, with my colleagues, we decided to have dinner at Tatu due to the positive reviews. The place is not so nice, a sort of big room with some separe'; where we were really disappointed was with the Chateaubriand steak, which came cold and was not so nice to eat (it should be the best plate)....
