“Always ok”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

It is an ''historical'' restaurant in Nairobi where you can eat easily all kind of meat you can find in Africa.
I have been there many times in the last 10 years and I have to say that level of service it is always good together with the quality of the meat, really high quality.
You can eat as much meat as you are able to do it so good luck but do not exaggerate too much....

“I really liked the atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

On our first day in Kenya we went to this restaurant and liked it very much. Could have been also the newness of it all, but we had fun on the outdoor terrace, ate all sorts of types of meat, drank fruit drinks and, all in all, had a great experience. Also, it is very reasonably priced

“Meat!!!!!!! Nom Nom Nom”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

If you love meat this is the place to eat!!!! We went there had a Tusker and let the meat come to us. The staff walk around with swords that have a large chunk of whatever animal is cooking the meat was delicious.

“One of best places to eat in Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Came here with my wife whilst on business trip. Great service. Be brave and try all the meats you probably won't get a chance elsewhere. sides are a bit limited but hence the name carnivore. A great place meat lovers like us.

“Eat everything”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

I went here at the end of a film shoot with the crew, it was a great experience, particularly trying giraffe and crocodile and other game meats - one of our party was vegetarian and had a sad time, I'm afraid
