Top class restaurant in Norfolk hotel. Terrific service and food. Quite expensive but worth it for a special occasion.

This restaurant is reputed to have the best steaks in Nairobi. It did not disappoint as they were excellent. The wine list was also decent with a good selection of international wines.

Held a meeting at the Norfolk - incidentally they have one of the most responsive business managers in Nairobi - and wanted s group dinner to round off the day. Tatu was he perfect solution. They handled multiple dietary needs and provided a varied menu of well cooked dishes. There are certainly more exotic restaurants in Nairobi but they do... More

I recently spent some time in Nairobi. Had a lovely dinner at Tatu, the fine dining restaurant of the Fairmont The Norfolk Hotel. Lovely interior decor, excellent wait staff and outstanding food. A wonderful wonderful dinner. Commenced with an Asparagus & avocado starter, followed by a New York striploin steak. 2 glasses of South African Shiraz complemented the meal perfectly.... More

I had lunch at Norfolk not so long ago and I really enjoyed the service. We were served freshly squeezed juice at no extra cost. This is rare in Nairobi as the hotels normally serve packet juice as part of their meals package and freshly squeezed juice, if ordered, is at an extra cost.

I went to Tatu for the first time this year. Thankfully Tatu is a much better restaurant than it's sister restaurant -the Lord Delemare Terrace. We had a delicious meal made with quality food and terrific flavours. The menu itself is thoughtful and chic and left me wishing I could taste more items! I appreciated that the portions were a...

Nice quiet place in the heart of Nairobi. For those who love antiques, it would definitely be a place I would recommend . There's a variety of places to sit according to your preference and the food is great though the staff requires a little work on their services.

Expensive but gives you the value for money and class. Very good location as well in the city. The service is world class and very very hospitable people. From the door to the reception to the rooms and much more. I guess this must be among the best hotels in Nairobi.

My wife and I went to dinner two nights in a row because there were so many dishes we wanted to try! The service was very attentive and our server was engaging and made excellent recommendations. A "must" is the Beef Soup! My only regret is not purchasing the wonderfully unique table decorations at the local market.
