The family which includes my parents, my wife, kids go to the Tamambo often and always for Sunday lunch.

It is now our default restaurant for when we are looking for;

1. A place with a beautiful garden that allows us to soak in some sun and enjoy the Kenyan outdoors
2. Delicious food
3. Great service
4. Great value

The big kids usually prefer to order off the menu while for the little kids, we grab something quick off the buffet...perfect.

I sooooo recommend

The restaurant is in a beautiful setting very green and leafy and the atmosphere of the place is great especially when the sun is out and you get to sit outside! I had a smoked salmon starter which is exactly what it says and they have great portions, my friend had the prawn bruschetta which was amazing! We also did the fillet beef and seared salmon (this is from the Tamarind Seafood restaurant) delicious. Clean plates all round!

Have been going to Tamarind now for years. I am somewhat of a regular. Have never been disappointed by the quality and freshness of the food or the amazing service. The staff here are the best, attentive to fault, very polite and very very professional. I have celebrated many occasions here. My husband proposed to me here. It was an wonderful experience, he had planned it all with the staff and even though I kept changing my desert order and ended up ordering something that was off menu, they kept up with me. We even got a bottle of champagne on the house. We also had our wedding dinner here.....It was very private and cosy, our little table for two by the fire. Since then have been having lunches and dinner there. Definitely a must go.

The setting of this restaurant in the Karen Blixen Gardens is divine and the food doesn't disappoint. Service was a little slow but the staff recognised this and bought us complimentary Kachos (Kenyan Nachos). Servings were large and the flavours fantastic. Treat yourself if in Nairobi!
