“good but overdone”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

we had dinner 2x in this gastronomic restaurant
the whole service and as we say tralala is good but the actual food is medium, the flavors are weak and the meat is floating in sauces... it is still far from a modern gastronomic experience
maybe due to the fact that the availability in nairobi from high quality ingredients is still limited...
i would go back occasionally to find improvements...

“Really nice experience”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Lovely atmosphere, exceptional service and very good food. Prices are high, but worth it as Pango gives you the full fine dining experience. We love good food and good service and were impressed with both at Pango.

“Looks nice on paper...”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

We visited this restaurant on a saturday night, and we were the only ones in there for 2 hours until one other table arrived, so the atmosphere was a little lacking. We were given a glass of bubbly at our table, and hot towels fragranced with eucalyptus, which was a really nice start. The restaurant itself looks lovely, with well laid tables and open fires, and the waiters are polite, the service quick and the food was presented very well. Unfortunately the dishes we chose were a little bland to be honest, which was a bit of a let down as the menu looked delicious. If you had to make a choice between the no.1 or No.2 restaurants in Nairobi, then Talisman wins hands downs in my opinion!

“Excellent dining”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

The Pango's dining room is a classic wood paneled and candle lighted old school venue. Excellent food and good selection. I had the Steak au Poivre and it was prepared at table side by a master. Good wine selection and excelent service.

Highly recommended.

“Would love to give it 4.5 stars”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

Formal, a little dark on the inside and very well presented. The service was first class; I was greeted by name as soon as I said we had a booking. The free tasters and glass of Rose were very welcome and beautifully presented. My lobster was very well cooked as was the steak and other dish of my companions. The bread was first rate and the wine list extensive.

It isn't cheap, but then quality rarely is. It presents value for money though and is an excellent venue for a special dinner.

I will certainly return.
