Very nice food. The place is packed and finding a place to seat as a family is quite hard. The tangerine juice is to die for. the portions are also quite generous. They should make the place a little more airy though.

Our local friend brought us here and it was epic! The flavours, the food, the spice, the tangerine juice, all of it was unbelievably good! We had chooza chicken and various other meat dishes including fish, all of which were packed so full of flavour! Definitely a local eatery, but get on it!

One of my regular places to have Chicken Chooza at. The food as always is good, nicely done and arrives pretty quick. Downside is that more often than not one has a waiting time of at least 15 minutes before you get a table. The ambience is not different from that of a very busy fish market. Huge crowd of... More

They are kind and give suggestions if you are not sure of what to order. The Chicken Tikka and Chooza chicken are... More

Yummy tangerine juice! Came here years back and the taste is always superb. Enjoyed my meal. Best chicken tikka in town! Average setting but organized place. Definitely worth a try when in Westlands, nairobi
