I was really disappointed with their service and customer relation. The place is nice and we enjoyed a nice koroga but when it can down to the bill, it all went south. They charged at least 50 Ksh more on every item that we had ordered compared to the price on the menu. We complained about it and both the... More

It is a nice outdoor restaurant in the midst of a garden setting. The food served here is Indian and Chinese mainly but quite excellent. Pricing is also okay. Do order for the chilly chicken or chilly paneer. Their starters are actually fabulous so go for that only if required. But it has a nice outdoor setting for the whole... More

This place is perfect for big groups of people who want to have dinner together. This place is famous for the Koroga, a way of cooking, and people can also cook themselves! So it turns to be a very fun and special experience. The food is nice, I would say mostly indian cuisine. It was very hard for me to... More

Its reputation precedes it. Once the most happening place, it has turned into a died down place, only catering for the most loyal of clients. the place - famous for its koroga style lounging - looks beat down with service inconsistent. However, should you have a long day to kill, this option may not be too bad.

I went to support my spouse's office team cookout session. The next hut was having a cookout and the supplies did not look adequate for the group that was present and that is why we opted to order directly. The food was quite oily. The waiters disappeared for long periods of time. It took 20 minutes before we all had... More

The very idea of paying to cook your own food is ridiculous. I went because i had to see this "KOROGA" thing. the quantity of the ingredients were a farce, the waiters seemed to have developed a brilliant trick of disappearing into thin air when you need them and turn up after half an hour completely drunk. the cooking area...

Not a good place to eat. The time they take to serve the "delicious" food is absolutely NOT worth the wait! It could be a great place for a cook-out, but the inhouse. Not advisable!
