I can't say it's a restaurant, it is just a local cafeteria. no menu, u just go to cashier and ask about what they serve , pay and get a coupon..then go to the kitchen and get ur food,

The restaurant is conveniently located in the city center and serves the most delicious chicken wings in town. Other local foods are also available at a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

The place is very central and offers local food. It is possible to sit outside. There is music almost every day, not bad at all, but maybe a bit too loud. The interior is a combination od students canteen and betting house, not much of a decor, with simple tables and chairs and tv screens with football all around (I think it is even possible to place bets). As for the food, it is a buffet, combination of chicken, beef and fish, with local vegetables, ugali and rice. Tilapia was very good, the other meat dishes average, vegetables not really with any taste. The staff was very helpful since there were six of us, so they put the tables together. We did not notice any desert option. The place was too packed up and noisy. All in all, you come here to eat and not to chat with a friend. If you are visiting Nairobi or if you are having guests, and you are thinking where to have dinner, you can confidently try this place.

of course there is a wide range of choice in nairobi, and ranalo is possibly a sincerely genuine and original place. Not so easy down town. Local food in mid-buffet mode. You can assemble your dish and bring to your table. Music most of the days. Fish, meat and a good choice of vegetables, freshly cooked. A very nice option in central nairobi.
Go for Ranalo
