“Christmas Day Lunch Dr. Wambua”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013

Booking was made by telephone for four adults. On arrival we were pleasantly welcomed and shown to our table. The ambience was good. The salad bar was good having a variety of salads. However the meats only featured about 7 cuts with no exotic cuts. The meat supply was not continuous with long waits between almost rendering the Pampa house style known as ‘Rodizio’ (eat as much as you like) non-applicable. I did raise the issue with some staff who gave the excuse of many visitors. However since prior booking is encouraged and the place only serves seated guests then the lack of prior planning and slow service is not encouraging. For meat lovers wanting the brazilian experience (rodizio) of succulent variety of meats,quick service and value for money I would recommend Fogo Gaucho. Thanks to Pampa for warm welcome, however having been to Fogo Gaucho in Westlands I couldn't help comparing.

“Embarrased by my choice”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

We were celebrating a family event and I was tasked with choosing the restaurant for our celebratory dinner. Ill keep it short and very polite by saying that this was a bad mistake. With two other couples tue restaurant staff were slow as we asked for finger bowls almost 10 minutes after asking for them. We had started munching the french fries and were almost done with our salads when they were finally brought. The meat highlighted in the website was not served. We asked for sausages and were told that these werent available. The rabbit meat was masked with curry powder and we suspected that this was to mask staleness as we noticed that the chicken and pork ribs werent fresh either. On the website they mention a wide range of meat cuts but on this night we were offered a maximum of 7 cuts. Their saving grace was the gentleman who was serving the meat and his name is Samuel. He was friendly and fast though the cuts served were neither fresh nor juicy according to our analysis.Unfortunately there was absolutely no value for money and Ill definately recommend Fogogaucho as the place for this type of meal.
