On of the top restaurants in Nairobi to eat, relax and have fun. Tusker draft beer is tough to get but if you, dont miss it. Curries are amazing. The Indian starters are good as well. Kids friendly as well.

Sadly I can't say much good about our experience here. We waited a very long time for our meals, one needed to be sent back and due to the lengthy duration we did not even order puddings or coffees. The service was not brilliant, as...More

Great environment and ambiance. The place makes for a great spot for night-outs, fine dining, and especially weekend brunches when there is also a local market set up here.

Enjoyed a pizza here with friends. TVs are available and appeared to be a place interested in the top football teams in the world. Would go back.

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.
