This restaurant was picked for me by my Friend Njeri Chege who also works there. She said it was the best in town! I dropped all other plans and picked this one for dinner with my Husband to celebrate our marriage! We drive in and nicely welcomed, valet parking. Very nice! To the restaurant, a lady confirms our names and... More

We were well welcomed on arrival and promptly shown our table which was to the side. Given plenty of time to peruse the menu which had a good selection on it. Wine list looked quite good too. The food was good and plenty of it. The service was excellent. And at the end of the meal gave me a nice... More

I used to dine here when Chef Karan was the head chef of the Fairmont properties. I went back after 3 years and it's lost all its charm. The service was so so slow, the food quality was poor, and the general atmosphere was so dull. When the bill arrived they double charged us for one dish. And it's totally... More

We are here on the first night of our honeymoon after booking to stay in the Fairmont Norfolk hotel. We were recommended the hotel from a friend who had been and were not disappointed. The food was beautiful, both of us having steaks for main. I enjoyed the Tomato, avocado and Mozzarella salad to start with my husband having Scallops.... More

I would highly recommend any lover of steak to this restaurant. Based at Fairmont the norfolk hotel, the location is perfect for a very peaceful evening dinner with great ambience and memorable service. Great with a glass of wine.

Great ambience and good presentation but the taste can definitely be improved. Not a good option if you are looking for vegetarian options.

The food was very tasty but it took FOREVER to come. And when it did arrive it wasn't very hot. I ordered a medium steak and it was still mooing - didn't want to send it back for fear it would take another 45 minutes to get it back - won't be back again.

My lovely wife and I had a Sunday evening dinner at Tatu. It has a sophisticated stylish look to it and a great atmosphere, even though fairly quiet that evening. We both had the designer hamburger which was superbly prepared and presented with a steak knife to hold it all together - and very tasty. We chose a great Italian... More
