Chooza! Everyone loves that stuff. The juice is watery though. They're very stingy with chooza sauce when you order takeaway so it's better to eat there. Also, it's not better than their Mombasa branch.

Best bbq in Nairobi. They have been consistent worth their quality for almost 2 decades! Expect a long w wait on the weekend as they don't take bookings and it's on a first come first serve basis..

This is a great restaurant if you are looking for delicious Indian BBQ food and not for the ambiance. The choice of menu is limited but excellent and be prepared to line up on busy evenings such as Friday to Sunday as it is very popular with the residents....tells you how good it must be if any restaurant is popular...

Nice restaurant with great ambience, mouth watering barbecue food & excellent service. They have a variety of fresh juices too to complement the food. Overall a good family joint where kids would enjoy too. Weekends get really busy & sometimes you may have to wait for a table so it's advisable to go for an early lunch or dinner.
