“Lots of Meat and Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Somewhat gimmicky but fun with a cool atmosphere. Most of the meat varieties were pretty good and nobody walks out of this place hungry.

“night to remember”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We visited this restaurant with a Kenyan so we knew it would be good,we were not disappointed, the atmosphere was great and all the staff were very welcoming, we ordered a platter which was a mixture of all kinds of meats and it was fabulous there was no shortage of side dishes and the staff were on hand to reheat our platter as it took so long to get through the enormous portions.A definite place to visit if you 're staying in Nairobi.

“Meat, meat and meat.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

This was a restaurant we had to visit, so they told us. If you hadn't been here, you hadn't been in Naïrobi. We liked the flag thing where you could eat all the food you could until you you surrendered. The food was nice but not spectacular. A simple steak would have done it for me.

“Meaty Dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

The meat was great, but now they have chicken wings, turkey, besides all the other meats. Not really what the Kenyans eat.
They could cut out the chicken and turkey.
