Went there so a dinner and it was good. Loved the modern décor vibe they have going on.. Would go there again very soon.. hopefully.

The lady who ushered us in barely did her job but the waiter (Peter) made the whole experience more than exceptional. The food presentation was just a stunning art that tasted even better than it looked. The portions slightly more than enough for an average eater like me - couldn’t even step in for moral support when bae desperately needed it :-)

Totally in love with our usual intimate library area. Great value for money.

The place is beautiful, this is definitely one of Nairobi's best looking hotels and the location is just perfect. Food was great, not the best I've had but not shabby at all either. Relatively fair prices on the menu, but watch out, the water the very generously fill up your glass with is not complimentary. Stay safe, ask the waiter lol. All in all I absolutely loved this place. You gotta try the chicken btw!

I visited the Jiko for NRW 2016... Where do I begin? The ambience was perfect, the service was great, and the food... oh, the food! The slow roasted chicken breast. BEST chicken I've ever had!!! There was a party of flavours in my mouth. Divine! And the crème brule... Lets just say I'm a convert. It's one of my now favourite desserts. And the jiko rula... LOVED it! Such a beautiful cream cocktail that dances on the tongue and goes down ever so smoothly. Yum! Can't wait to try more meals from the Jiko. This was by far my best NRW experience to date. :-)

NRW2016 at Jiko at the Tribe

I am happy to say that my latest venture into NRW2016 was a resounding success. There were the inevitable service errors but on the whole, the entire experience was a delight. This is one of the few restaurants that has embraced the whole concept of NRW wholeheartedly. They have a completely separate menu, you don’t have to ask twice to receive it, and they even have special cocktails and wines just for this week It’s also one of the few restaurants that you don’t feel ripped off at, with reasonable sized portions and true value for money The Good The location and ambience for a start is amazing. Staff are extremely courteous and very well informed. The manager makes a special effort to walk around checking on diners, and the food was fabulous. I had the “surf and turf” starter and I have to honestly say their beef tartare was spot on, I haven’t had such good tartare in a long while. The salmon carpaccio was also delicious and beautifully presented. My main course of 7 hour braised lamb shank was delicious, perfectly cooked with a thick, rich sauce accompanying it and the caramelized gnocchi were fluffy, light and perfectly cooked. I loved the mustard sauce that accompanied the slow roasted chicken breast, and it was great to finally get a roasted chicken that was still moist and plump with crispy skin. Seared white fish was a good sized portion of fresh fish cooked beautifully The crème brulee was delicious with the perfect burnt sugar crack and a creamy light centre. The bad The only two things I can really find fault with were (1) The big time chocolate dessert was a disappointment and did not deliver on its promise of hot, cold, liquid, crumble. It almost tasted of a pudding made from powdered chocolate. And (2) service was slightly slack when they got really busy. Nowhere near as noticeable as I have had in some places and it was very quickly corrected The Ugly Honestly for me it was that the meal came to an end and that I only have one stomach The whole experience was a delight, great company and good wine made it even better. My hats off to Jiko for being one of the few places that truly gives its diners an experience worth remembering

You know a meal is going to be cooked to perfection when they don't even put s&p on your table. That ladies and gentlemen, is what I call #ChefBalls

We went to this restaurant on Sunday evening for dinner for the NRW and I must say, the food was really great. I had the roasted chicken as the starter and loved the parmesan and Avocado. The cherry vinegar brought incredible flavour The lettuce and radish were nice and crispy .The cozy intimate setting and ambiance made everything feel even more special. For the main I had the Lamb leg and its tenderness was just perfect. I loved the red onions and potato gnocchi I seriously couldn’t get enough. All in all if you haven’t tried their menu, you’ve got to try it. Your taste buds will thank you for it
