The Tamarind has been a staple Nairobi restaurant for many years, but has recently moved from the centre of town to Karen, taking over a premises previously used by another restaurant. It doesn't seem to have done the quality of the food any harm. A group of us tried it out last week, and of course how could you possibly imagine that you would start with anything other than breaded crab claws!! They are to die for. I have never been to the Tamarind (over 20 times in my life) without trying them usually as a starter but sometimes doubled up as a main. Prawns peri peri as a main, and others had the crab in ginger and reef fish. The ice cream to finish comes as always with your name inscribed on the plate in chocolate sauce along with a witty inscription. The waiting staff were delightful, very happy to help and suggest alternatives. One of the worlds great restaurants, sea food biased to be sure. Give it a try.
