Loved their mushroom sauce on toasted bread. Great ambiance and a good place too cool off after work. The service is quite slow though.

I tried out Under the Radar this morning, after having driven past it a no. of times, and what started out as a great experience, ended on a sour, hungry note. They have a lovely outdoor set-up and a well equipped and clean children's play area, which is what had attracted me in the first place. My kids loved it and were hard at play for a good 2.5 hours until getting food proved to be an impossible task. Despite following-up on our order severally and numerous promises by the waitress (who wasn't being honest about the reasons for the
delay), 1 hour and 15 minutes later we still hadn't been served!! This considering we were the first to place an order once the kitchen opened!?! The manager on duty (Alvin I think) looked perturbed when I notified him, but offered no apology nor suggested any solutions, and we eventually left hungry and disappointed. Suffice it to say, we'll wait for a change in management before we go there again.

P.S Since we never got to taste the food, I assumed the worst in rating it

We had a company event here & everything else other than the service was good.

The food was delicious, the indoor setting was lovely, nice ambiance in the outdoor "banda's"

This was all brought down by the wait staff - we couldnt get anything on time. They were so confused, i gave up on getting juice after asking different servers severally. The bar tender couldnt open a wine 2L box & someone from our team had to do it. Once we were done with dinner we were left with dirty tables.

It was such a let down after an otherwise lovely evening

A beautiful restaurant on Argwings Kodhek Road in Kilimani. The restaurant consists of a number of Majlis baldachins spread-out in a park-like garden each named after one of the islands of The Seychelles offering shade and coolness. The landscaping is superb, staff is very attentive and they will remember your preferred beverages when you next visit. The food is delicious and very well presented offering an international mix of dishes from Kenya, Italy, USA and India. Their "all you can eat BBQ ribs"-nights are very popular, so advanced reservation is advised. Prices are quite decent. I can highly recommend this place.
