This should not be called a restaurant. Imagine going for a short meeting, ordering tea and coffee, and we get something which looks more like dishwashing water. It taste ugly such that you let the cup be, and do not finish. The taste is this little scent of sewage, or soil, or something undefined but surely it appears bacterial. One... More

Since the 70's Tin Tin has been one of the best oriental experiences in Nairobi. To date, that old safari beat still rocks the joint.

I ordered rice and pork and though the potions were small, the food was delicious. Their juices are not fresh and didn't taste good,something needs to be done about this. the restaurant felt cold too, the decor needs... More
