We went for lunch with the family on a weekend, the entire restaurant was completely empty which was my first doubt on the quality of restaurant / food but we decided to give it a chance. The French fries were frozen fries, tasted like the ones you get at KFC. Pizza was so average, sushi was possibly the worst I've... More

Lovely ambience and serene environment. The food was ok, had a green Thai chicken curry, not the best I've ever had though. Friendly staff and very humble staff who don't rush you to order, and keep checking on you from time to time.

Visited twice during my stay at the hotel. After two weeks on safari, a cheeseburger sounded amazing and it was really Good! Also ordered a to go pizza for the airplane ride home, which was delicious as well. Great service by staff!

A bit out of our way but well worth it. We came here on a Sunday afternoon and were really surprised by the lovely serene garden setting and the excellent well-priced food. We had fresh fruit juices, the best hamburger in town (!!!) and a delicious salad. Oh and I shouldn't forget a fresh strawberry tart. Everything was served with... More

I ate there several times last week while staying at the Town Lodge next door. Both the pizza and the meals were excellent.

I wanted a light dinner and Mukutan made that possible. I chose the Chicken Fajita. The meal was fresh and I didn't have to wait long. The portion was large for a light meal. The salsa, guacamole and sour cream were served in cute little "teapot" like containers. The chicken was a bit bland for "mexican" but nothing that Tabasco... More

Delightful setting both during the day and night, good and wide range of food, good service, braziers in the evenings if a little cool.

We visited on a Saturday night in late July. The restaurant was quiet but the ambiance was good. The cafe was located in the hotel garden which was beautifully lit. The complex was extremely secure, the staff friendly and the range of food on offer good. The pizzas were delicious

I enjoyed dinner at the hotel and found the whole ambiance and the quality of the food very agreeable. It is one of a number of good restaurants within the gated and very secure area of the Fairview Hotel. It is very conveniently situated for the visitor who does not want to brave the peak hour traffic of Nairobi.

I was a late guest for the restaurant, my plane came in somewhat late. So I decided not to go for a too complicated meal. I saw veggy sushi on the menu and got curious. Well: it was perfect! Delicious!
