Jeff's Review ‹ Back to Colosseum
I ate at the 2 Rivers Branch.
I sampled four main meals. -The roast chicken was overcooked and dry. -The fillet steak portion was too small and drenched in sauce. It was chopped up into small pieces such that you couldn't tell what cut it was. -Even though pan dried, the red snapper fish had absolutely no char on it - looked boiled. The dish has no cohesion at all, it has potato slices, tomato slices and onions that impart little flavour in the food, if any. It's as if they were cooked separately. -The roast vegetables are huge chunks that look like they've been chopped with a lawnmower. Unedible and uninviting. They lack the characteristic char and taste of roasted vegetables. -The chicken breast looks good on the plate, it tastes plain and lacks even basic seasoning.
Most of the food is generally cooked in a very simple manner with little seasoning and barely any creativity in terms of marrying a variety of ingredients to enhance a main dish.
The french fries are nice. That's the only upside.
Eat somewhere else. There are far better Italian restaurants in Nairobi.
