“Roast Meat”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

Its basically a big shack on the side of a busy road. Serves Nyama Choma (roast meat) which is not bad. However there are better nyama choma joints in nairobi (eg Maxland which is just down the road or Kenya Continental Hotel in Westlands)

“Extremely Local”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2010

If you want to experience Kenyan food and mingle with Kenyans, this is the place for you. It is very local. Not the cleanest of toilets - make you question the food but i must admit - has the best nyama choma (barbecued goat meat). Drinks and food reasonably priced. Be careful, if you are white, you might be open to exploitation....plus you would stand out like a sore thumb!. only go there with a local guide.
