Kokeb Restaurant
Ranked #14 of 22 Restaurants in Nakuru
Cuisines: Ethiopian
Description: Kokeb Restaurant is a peaceful oasis offering not only authentic Ethiopian cuisine in a casual atmosphere, but also Italian and Kenyan food. You can eat indoors, but I always enjoy eating in their shaded eating area outside. Beautiful, and a must for any stopovers through the Rift Valley.

This is our favourite restaurant in Nakuru and always eat here when in town. The owner of the restaurant is eager to please his guests and always has time for a chat. He even remembered us from two years ago - impressive! Usual Ethiopian fare - injera with a variety of stews on top. Excellent flavours. The restaurant also has a great selection of freshly squeezed juices. The mango one is our favourite. Nice setting as well as the restaurant has a garden around it. We ate inside but there are options to eat outside as well.

I'd never eaten Ethiopian food before so don't have anything to compare the food to but I really enjoyed my meal. It was tasty, cheap and I didn't have to wait very long. I've been a few times, the staff are friendly, it's a local Kenyan restaurant with a casual feel to it, you can sit in bandas or outside. I recommend it if you're in Nakuru and want to try some new dishes.

Kokeb is a family run business that serves Ethiopian food. They aim to serve food that you would eat in an Ethiopian home. The value for money is excellent and the food is consistently good (we've eaten here many times). We'd recommend the enjeera with mixed vegetarian options.
There is a selection of western food on the menu but we have not tried these - no need when the Ethiopian food is good. Also worth trying the freshly made fruit cocktails.
