“Good food, basic settings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

We had lunch with a few friends who wanted no fuss experience. The place specializes in grilled meat 'choma' as it is known in Nairobi! They also do boiled or fried meat and we had the latter, It was soft and full of flavor. If are pressed for time do call in advance & place your order!

“Pretty good nyama choma”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Went here with work at lunch time on a Friday. If you go on the weekend, try to book your meat, otherwise you could be waiting a while, depending on how many there are of you. There were 8 of us and we got 5kg of goat (has to be goat), we got 4kg of ribs and 1kg of shoulder (I think), and it was enough. We sat inside on some leather seats - looked like all other seats were bar stools style. While parking is available, during busy times don't be surprised to see cars blocking you in - just ask for staff to help locate the driver(s) to let you out. Generally a nice atmosphere, although it was for lunch and not evening.

“Roast Meat”
3 of 5 stars 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)
