Had a family lunch and the place is good for kids. They have slides, swings and bouncing castles. There was a "spiderman" who entertained the children very much. We had a meat platter for three which was delicious and enough. Great time spoilt by poor service. Our assigned waitress kept playing hide and seek even when we wanted to give... More

I've only had (rather so-so) masala chips and drinks from the pretty good beer selection, but it's got swings and slides that attract my kids every time we go by. Lots of birthday parties.

We had a private party at the annex called the white room which has all white divan seats, a bar, nice lighting and your own DJ. We had a full mbuzi with accompaniments, some chicken and spare pork ribs. The goat meat was very hard as has been observed by a different reviewer, the ribs and wet fry chicken were... More

Feels homely (was previously someones home) and the ambiance is good. The nyama choma was too hard but the honey glazed pork ribs stood out.

This is the only place I have chili garlic pork ribs. They really are to die for. It's a child friendly restaurant too.

the food is good. The staff might need a little bit of cheer. Outside seating area is great during the day but might be a a tad bit breezy during the night. They also have a playing ground for children.

Being in Nairobi often,I like going around the different restaurants around me. So I wanted to see what this under the radar had to offer. We were met by a very welcoming Alex who was was waiter for the entire meal. I must say he was very prompt and helpful with meal suggestions. The pizza that he recommended was delicious... More

Lovely place to be with favorable weather, which is most of the time. The indoor lounges are quite private with great ambience. The chefs know their job well, so food is delightful. Staff are quite pleasant. It has a children's play area, making it ideal for families during the weekends.
