Top restaurants

African Restaurant
“Love it or hate it, Carnivore serves up Kenya's most famous nyama choma (barbecued meat) – it's been an icon for tourists, expats and wealthier locals for over 25 years. At the entrance is a huge barbecue pit laden with real swords of beef, pork, lamb, chicken and farmed game meats such as crocodile and ostrich. It's a memorable night out.”

Brewery
“Brew Bistro offers a nice selection of delicious beer from Big Five Brewery. They also have a variety of delicious food available and good deals every day of the week. We recommend going during happy hour to take advantage of the two for one pitcher deals. The rooftop location offers beautiful views of the city and an interesting venue when the place becomes a club later in the night. The club is a popular destination for both expats and locals. ”
