“Excellent Butchery (service could be better) and Average Bistro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

I believe Prime Cuts has the best quality meat in Nairobi, along with a great selection of cheese and seafood. They are however not the most helpful, if its not "on the shelf" you have to convince them to give you the cut of meat you want, they won't take orders for something they don't stock (I asked for rabbit for example), they don't go the extra mile to help you, a bit complacent.

Their Bistro as one would expect serves great meat, I recently had fillet steak and chips, but the chips were stone cold, I noticed that they cook a batch at a time, so no wonder they are cold when the last person for that particular batch comes along.

“Nairobi's best sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Yes a butchery and deli is not the common place you would think of for sushi. But if you like sashimi don't go anywhere else. Tuna, octupus, salmon are as fresh as can be. Grab a made to order platter, order a bottle of sauvignon blanc and people watch in the food court, at a fraction of the price of a regular Japanese restaurant at excellent quality.

“A great menu for late lunch and relaxing after the market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

The menu is wonderful for a variety of sandwiches to take a break after the masai market held here on Friday's. Great open air seating to enjoy the sun and watch the world go by. Great burger and fries. Certainly bit higher priced than you find in downtown Nairobi, but that cost covers the surrounding, "high rent district" and security which makes you feel comfortable while relaxing. Great choice to just relax while seeing all the Village Market shops have to offer visitors.
