“Second trip to Nbo and couldn't wait to eat here again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Great place to try true Kenyan fare and great prices. Choices are served up quickly and everything arrives hot. Try the tilapia, goat, wet beef, ugali and kale are an all around delicious experience. Wash it down with a Tuskers and you have a perfect evening.

Music is a little loud in the dining area if you want to talk, but adds to the total experience if you want a night out.

“It was ok but limited”
3 of 5 stars 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”
5 of 5 stars 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.
