Having dined in a "Fogo de Chao" in Washington DC, I have to admit I was skeptical about Kenya's ability to replicate the experience. Much to my surprise, this restaurant has an excellent presentation the food and ambiance as first experienced on the American continent. Starting with a well represented local salad bar, we transitioned to slices of selected cuts of beef, pork and poultry presented in true Gaucho style on sizzling skewers by Kenyans who tirelessly hurried from table to table to ensure we were well provisioned. There were even red and green pogs to turn over to indicate if you wanted more or no more meat. Desert was delectable slices of Kenyan pinneapple lightly roasted and cut lengthwise from the plant.

Laid back atmosphere, very reasonable prices and fantastic cuts of grilled meat. Wash it down with a glass of beer and you have all the ingredients for a guys night out.

Our family, the company I work for have been to Fogo countless times and we NEVER tire. A large choice of salads to choose from, countless cuts of fresh succulent meat. What more can a carnivore ask for? Topped off by friendly Johnny Zanrosso who makes sure he never forgets his regulars. How many times have we sung "Happy Birthday" at Fogo? How many times have we arrived without a reservation and found a table? Always! That is most endearing. You only have to recommend this restaurant once and the person is hooked. I'm glad that they are growing because they DESERVE it, however with growth something intimate goes and one begins to feel a bit like they are coming through a revolving door...."in and out".. My main concern is the turnover of excellent waiters who have come to know one's favourite cut like the Garlic Beef and the fresh Prawns. Keep your good staff Johnny; they are an asset! Oh and more of the band please :they are very good.

Great variety of meat and I found it to be pretty authentic. The salad bar isn't that good, but who goes to a churrascaria for greens?

They also have a really nice grilled pineapple dessert. Great choice for guys night out.
