Travellers this is a must, tourist can go to carnicore. The mbuzi choma( bbq goat) is to die for. A kenyan delicacy this has to be tried. there is a rowdy but decent bar here so not for families but for a real kenyan experience give it a go.

We stopped over and had a great time! It is clean, the service is good, the meat is awesome and the drinks are really affordable. I would recommend it to anyone looking for great service at a budget friendly rate.

We were a large group; pre-ordered meat, but it took them quite long to have it ready due to staff disorganisation.

Not an expert on Kenyan food but I really enjoyed lunch here. Had the grill meat (goat) and ugali very tasty. The colleagues I was with are local to Nairobi and work close by, they ordered the cut of meat beforehand so I think this is the key. Very nice not fatty at all and cooked perfectly. I would definitely... More

This restaurant is mainly for the road runner who wants a quick bite in a rush to catch a ride. Not a cosy place for those looking for rest-eat-and play experience

A typical Original with fresh meat served from the grill ... Large and very affordable meals in a very basic setting ... It is an experience that you should not miss!

Stopped by to check out this very popular spot one Sunday afternoon. They didn't have mbuzi (lamb) choma so we settled for Mbuzi wet Fry which was way too fatty and bony. But it was tender - the little pieces one could eat. Maybe the choma is good. I don't know. Very basic. Seemed to appeal to middle aged (or... More

I see this place full of cars whenever I pass by it, so we decided to give it a try. I have had nyama choma at a few places in Nairobi and this is by far the worst of all. The goat meat was fatty, chewy, and full of gristle. The chicken was undercooked and blood started oozing out when... More
