This is the Best Butchery in Kenya. If you're looking for dry aged grain fed beef then this is the only reliable source. There is a wide range of seafood almost anything you can think of. They also offer a wide range of Cheeses and deli items.

Ordered a sirlion steak when out for lunch at the Village market food court. The steak was soft and moist, and came accompanied by a lovely salad and fries. The waiter serving us had some attitude, which was uncalled for. However staff at the shop were very helpful and friendly.

I come here weekly and the quality of the meat and fish is always outstanding. The service is always with a smile. There is no other place in Nairobi where I get my meat and fish!

A part of the Art Village food court, a lovely place to spend a lazy afternoon under the shade of the garden umbrellas, enjoying the cool breeze. Larger portions of fpod, simple and beautiful floavors, simply cooked prime meat to perfections. if your traveling from India or the subcontinent and are a meat lover this place is a must visit....

Prime cuts in the Village Market, a part of food-court is our favorite sushi/maki/sashimi place. We also buy here all our fresh fish for home cooking. Prime cuts offer an excellent selection of meats, fish and sea-food, cheeses, pates, and other delicious food.

Located in the Village Market food court, Prime Cuts offers a very (almost too) broad menu, including fish, burgers, and stir-fry dishes. Decent beer is available from other locations in the food court. Visit the shop for good meat after your meal.

I have eaten the Tandoori Chicken Salad most often, but today I went for the salmon wrap. Very good. Both meals are a bit overpriced though.

We like most their sushi bar from which we eat at least once every week. We also buy very fine fish and shrimp to prepare at home. Selection of cheeses is probably best in town. Friendly and competent staff. We are their clients for years already. No dislikes.

It get's mighty busy on the weekends, so beware the wait for your food, however it's worth it. Their sandwiches are some of the best, the Philly specials are perfection in a panini. Though small, the quality is consistent and some of the tastiest peri peri chicken around!!
