If you want to feel spoiled and well attended to then this is the place. Food and service were very good and the place had a nice feel to it. A bit on the expensive side, but you certainly get what you pay for, will definitely go again.

Having had a bad early experience in the new location we went back to try again, I'm really glad we did. They have it firmly back on track, excellent service and food in a pleasant environment and easy access. well done guys, it was clearly teething problems following the move. If you want great seafood put Tamarind nairobi on your list!
