The restaurant is well presented, clean neat and tidy. I dined in the main section facing the grill preparation station. I ordered the Rib-eye steak, rare. It was done to perfection. The staff were attentive and I'll surely fine there regularly during my stay in Nairobi.

We truly enjoyed our first dinner at Tatu that we came back again! There are several culinary surprises - which were delightful. Especially the creative loaf of bread. Very good and warm staff as well.

One of the best culinary experience I've had. Sit at the Chef's Table for an over the top birthday experience. Everything was simply exquisite. From the waiter (Elijah) to the chef (Evelyn), from the appetizers to the desert and the wined, what else is there to say...just pure perfection.

Amazing service, amazing food - you don't really get wowed by food in Nairobi but we were definitely wowed! Dessert could have been better but it didn't matter so much as we'd had great starters and mains. Great spot for a date or even with a bunch of friends. Can't wait to go back
