this place used to be one of the best restaurants in Nairobi but it now feels like its living of its former glory. The service was very good, the food nice but nothing to rave about and the restaurant itself could do with a facelift to bring it into this century.

An excellent location for that sumptious sea food meal. Located along Aga Khan walk on National Bank Building, the restaurant has great staff where hospitality is at it's best.
