“It was ok but limited”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

The place was clean and nice. The menu was a little limited but from what I was told we went at a late time so that meant limited food selection. But the food was good.

“Great Kenyan food at a great price”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Probably my favourite restaurant in Nairobi serving good quality food at a very good price. The restaurant( K'osawei to the locals) serves traditional kenyan food and is eaten the traditional way (with your hands). The fried fish (Tilapia) served with Ugali and Katchumbari is best I have tasted at 500 Ksh for everything. If you want real Kenyan food you must visit this place.

“Get fed in under 5 minutes!”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

Great traditional foods (I highly recommend the Osuga), & the fact that food never takes more than 5 mins to be in front of u is always going to be a plus!

“Best for Local Delicacies”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

This a perfect choice if you want to taste local dishes. It has a number of options, from brown ugali, to local vegetables and traditional fish. These are some of the dishes that, to many of us, can only be associated with our grandmothers because we have long forgetten how to make them or how they taste. The prices are also affordable and worth that special visit. I loved their chicken, it took me many years down memory lane. It can get crowded though, especially at lunch times, because many people in the city center look to it for traditional foods. I however think that there is room for more meal options.
