Recommended by Anthony , the cook at Hope Gardens Guest Hotel, Tamasha Joint was a highlight of our trip. We loved eating here on a patio. Various Barbecued meats, fries and salads, plus drinks made for a fun meal.

Just stopped in for lunch on Sunday with family. We were seated immediately but it took close to 30 min for someone to take our drinks order. We ordered meet which was prepared in a so-so manner.

It is a nice place to have lunch and especially take away during back to school hustle. It is next to Uchumi supermarket.

Totally not worth the penny! The food served is stale, the customer care team is least bothered and will not listen to any complaints because THEY ARE ALWAYS RIGHT! I had to throw away more than half my food as it was un-edible!

Good food, nice crowd, no prostitutes, a good evening for Nairobi middle class. Get the Nyama Choma by the kg down below and settle in for some good conversation and cold tuskers.

The food is ok and the price of the drinks are pocket friendly. You never disappoint with your selection of inhouse DJ's.
