Nayjama is only one block (100m) from the trainstation of Oruro. The restaurant is very modern and clean. Even the toilets are incredible clean. This restaurant could be placed in a North American or European city. And the service was also fast and excel-lent. Clean tables with linen table cloths. The restaurant is divided in an upper and a lower... More

The city of Oruro do not exceed as one that has good restaurants in spite of being the capital of the Carnival (World Heritage). Years ago the Nayjama had the privilege of been one of the best for local dishes, but since it got renewed and converted in a two-floor modern restaurant, it lost the taste. The place still has...

In front of the railway station to Uyuni - Villazon (argentine borderline) they serve full dishes of Bolivian specialties. Very well known for their excellent lamb plates.

Didn't expect such a place in Oruro! 5 minutes from the train station. Very clean restaurant with absolutely enormous portions! You will find both tourists and Bolivians in this restaurant. A good place to stop in.

This place is very convenient for a nice lunch before you get on the tourist train to Uyuni. It is about a block from the train station. The quality of food is exceptional, they have good vegetarian options. The service is friendly and they were very understanding when we explained that we had to catch a train in 30 minutes.... More

My boyfriend and I were super tired and had been carrying our bags for ages and were looking for a big, healthy meal before our train to Tupiza - this place did not disappoint. Insanely huge portions and absolutely delicious food! My boyfriend had the pasta with chicken and for once there was actually loads of meat in the dish... More

This is a large, nice furnished restaurant resembling a large living room from the 80's. We tried the Costillar (fried lamb ribs) with white rice and salad. Lamb in Bolivia is generally speaking lean, sweet and good tasting so pretty much the same taste you'd have almost everywhere around. Good, fresh salad with boiled white corn on the side (choclos).... More

I had lunch here when I was waiting to catch the train from Oruro to Uyuni and glad I did.! I got the chicken breast that came with rice and chips. Simple, yet so many places mess it up. Chicken was cooked perfectly as were the rice & chips, big portions and great prices. Not sure why someone said it... More

The altitude and rich salty terrain in this part of the world has created the perfect conditions for raising free range lamb. It is lean and tasty. Nayjama makes the best Cola de Cordero (the lower back of the lamb) you will ever taste. A must try when you visit Oruro!
