Very pretty location, great prices and wonderful food. Had their soup of the day, tried the feta samosas and their fish and chips. Everything was top notch! Also, free wifi was a nice bonus.

Description
Set in 21 acres of Karen, a leafy suburb twenty kilometers Southwest of Nairobi, lies the Purdy Arms. With a view of the famed knuckled ridge of the Ngong Hills (“I had a farm in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong Hills” – Karen Blixen, Out of Africa) it is a relaxing place to stay, have a meal or drink or two.
