As we arrived at the restaurant, we didn't know what to expect as we drove up to the steel gates in our taxi. The gates opened and closed behind us and inside the compound was a very smart restaurant with plenty of outdoor tables. We...More

Whenever we visit family in Nairobi from Australia this is our first stop. Our favourite restaurant in Africa! Fabulous food with great flavours. Friendly staff. Great atmosphere. We look forward to this so much! What a gem! Wish they would open in Sydney!

Went there for lunch at habesha. Must try the chilli shiro and the doro whatt. The ambiance is very ghetto style and could put you off easily but the food takes that away.

Very good friendly service. The food itself was ok but far from amazing. We tried the mixed platter and also a goat curry. To be honest it all tastes like food from a shopping mall food court. Not bad. Not brilliant.
