Wanted to go here for ages but unfortunately the food is very disappointing! The gift shop is ridiculously expensive. I won't be going back, such a shame!!!

Loved the food. Love the salad. Great atmosphere. But the signature welcome drink at 750 shillings rather soured the experience. It was a delicious drink but the bill was a shock.

I experienced Carnivore with a group of coworkers and it was an amazing experience. I tried several types of meat for the first time and it was clean and well cooked. Definitely a must experience when in Nairobi.

This place is big and bold. Luxurious and powerful atmosphere. All the meat you can eat with samples of ostrich, crocodile, and more. Spare ribs and beef ribs are great and many sauces to choose from.
