This used to be the go to place for nyama choma. The meat used to be tender and fresh. Now, the meat leaves a lot to be desired. Am not surprised its nolonger always full like it used to be. They need to improve.

Mombasa road is suffering from daily jams. Therefor you always need to leave from town very early. The jam may even take you 3 hours. Sometimes there is no jam, in that case i go to Choma zone first have good fresh food (try their fried chicken !) and i go from there to JKIA airport by 10 min taxi

This was realy a nice place to end our stay in Kenya, before taking a plane back home again.The food was good and so was the price. The location close to the airport is also interesting because you do'nt wanna be caught in the traffic jam at the last moment!

Didn't know this was here - but often stop off on my way to the airport. A decent plate of bitings, choma etc and a cold beer certainly hit the spot at the end of the day.

I made an impromptu decision to hop in because of the heavy traffic and so wanted to buy time. Bad idea I should insist. The service was slow, and horrible.

Located just before City Cabanas interchange, this restaurant has lots of seating available and plays live music on Fridays. Their family platter is around Ksh. 1,700, and includes chicken, goat, choma sausage, etc. All in all, if an ideal meal for you involves a pile of meat, Choma Zone will be good for you. Not a bad place to pop... More
