“Fantastic Outing”

Menu has a wide range to choose from. Quality and quantity of food always impressive. To top it all, newly opened tamarind restaurant offers delicious sea food in a wonderful environment. A must go when in Nairobi.

This restaurant serves great food, the staff members are very friendly and helpful (we were served by a lovely waitress called Mary), and it's atmosphere is just great. The restaurant is also located about 600 meters from the Karen Blixen Museum.

“Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

This is a great place to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon in a small group of friends, while enjoying the ambiance and really good food. Beautiful, serene, garden surroundings, and I particularly enjoy the cheese Samosas! Would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to unwind and just chill away from the hustle n bustle of the city.
