If you want to have your Sunday brunch or late breakfast/lunch, its green garden is a perfect place. I would not recommend it for dinner, for sime reason inside of the restaurant and outdoor dining area are kinda dark. Food was ok, and service is rather slow but it is the case for most of the restaurants in Nairobi. Tamambo gets very busy during the weekends with locals as well as tour buses since it is one of the touristic destination. Sunday brunch dishes mainly Kenyan. Tamambo has a great garden, perfect for kids to run around. Restaurant has also offer a bar, gets busy during Friday nights with expats.

Four of us ate here before going on to the K B museum. It was lunchtime and half of the outdoor tables were full. The staff were attentive and very efficient and the food came in good time. A little bit pricey for Nairobi but the setting is beautiful and relaxing, and the food portions were very good and tasty too. Worth a visit (and more worth a visit than the K B museum!)

Surroundings are good. However the meal are quite ordinary. Nothing special. Cottages has a small swimming pool. The service is not so bad but you can only go when you have enough time for waiting.

Tamambo Karen Blixen has a beautiful and serene ambience. It is the sort of place you will enjoy a delicious meal while taking in the pleasing surroundings. I believe Tamambo has the best service, it is unparalled! If you don't believe that such a place exists... try it!! You will not be dissapointed!
