Good lunch venue in upperhill. Positives: The food is tasty and turnaround time from order to delivery good. Staff are polite and attentive. Issues: The price vs the service not well aligned. Takes long to settle bills, and it's cash only. no credit cards or mobile money...in 2017? Parking not adequate, Uber or walk at lunch hour.

Nice restaurant with great outdoor sitting. With the road repairs in the area, it is wise to ask for directions. I love their pilau rice and chicken. This was my first time to have mint tea and i liked it. The indoor sitting area needs better cleaning services. You are safer sitting outside. Helpful staff. Kudos

Good meal, very good value and only 2 minutes walk from the Crowne Plaza. Fish was huge, prices reasonable - bring insect spray!

This place is few hundred yards from Crowne Plaza. Good choices, food is wonderful and plentiful. Waitresses are very friendly, and do give their honest feedback when asked for recommendations. Lamb Tinnar is the best. It is cooked in clay underground oven for 6 hours, and stays very juicy. So, why 4 stars, and not 5? 2 small reasons: 1.... More

Close to the high rise of hotels and offices in Nairobi Central Business District is this small charming restaurant (the photo in the heading does not look at all familiar to me). The restaurant is a former colonial bungalow in an extensive garden. Loads of on site parking space available. There is inside seating but sitting outside is charming. Staff... More

the hotel offres a good variety of dishes but need to develop more in order to attract more people to stay at the hotel in stead of going out for dinner else where

this is a lovely new restaurant where my son's wedding was held. i know it will be popular with locals/travellers if it gets the publicity it deserves. the prices were very reasonable and the ambiance was A*******. i have a few nice photos available. thank you. btw i'd say the cuisine was arabian :) rather than african, but you didn't have that in the drop down list.
