Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Another lovely lunch at Splendid View. The fresh lemonade is just delicious and the coconut chutney is always a winner. The service is good, always friendly and efficient and the curries of course are divine. Thank you Splendid view - we are very happy customers

Not easy to get really good Indian food in Nyali, there is not much choice. The major flaw with Splendid view is their delivery times through Glovo. They keep manipulating the delivery time, so it looks like it is just around the corner, but is...slower than any others. On top of this the lamb meat often is not very tender or well cooked.More

This is the best biryani on the coast , we love the way they make their biryani because it's bonelesss off the bone from 1/4 piece chicken which makes it much more easier to eat and tender. They also have fish and mutton . The...portions are very large and filling and at an affordable price of only 500 for the biryani trust us the price is worth it for the portions. Try the tandoori naan buttered , i mean this is the best along the coast maybe even Kenya ... You can never go wrong with splendid views naans NEVER...More

Our family ate quite frequents here and we absolutely love their food, they have a great menu where you can choose from grills such as Tikka which we love , to seafood , curries and desserts, Portioning wise very hearty portions especially with chips n...their Biryani My son loves the poussin chicken to the point we always have to ask for extra sauce 😆 and they are always love and enough to accommodate, we go on weekends n it's mostly busy but you won't find the service lacking except if the place is in overly packed then there may be a wait just as all places .

Had the fish and chips that was on offer And the portion was fantastic as well as the taste. Their batter is a unique take on the classic item and it is crunchy till the last bite. Try having it with the mango kulfi milkshake..., it is divine!!!!More

I really give thanks and appreciate the whole team behind this spectacular restaurant. Tried most BBQs in town but this one really touched my taste buds differently, it was flavoursome and delightful till the last bite. I also think they have the best kulfis in...town ! Make sure you also don't miss a chance to try this lovely place when you are traveling to Mombasa.More

Splendid view you may ask ? Now there isn't ny view per say but I asked this to the owner which he explained was their name of the restaurant in the 60s in malindi which worked it's way up in becoming famous and they stuck...to it ever since and that makes sense . For the food now where do I even begin , firstly the starter s were superbly amazing... We had the prawns zanzibari which were fresh and crispy and punjabi pakoras were one of the best versions I've ever tasted Mains we had the bbq mix grill, the chicken chooza and poussin chicken for the kids which I couldn't resist not having. Their unique way on the poussin chicken is flavorsome and refreshing considering the standard way slot of the other eateries do This place is one of the best and if you haven't been her you're surely missing out on the best experienceMore

If you like fresh food with great flavors then this the place, I enjoy my BBQ and most places here in this town can only replicate this establishment . The food here is made with heart and amazing effort. For starters the tomato soup is...amazing or yoh can have the pakoras ... then for mains anything from the BBQ section is a perfect option. Their menu is well made with great options and the prices are reasonable considering their portions.More

A classic restaurant since my childhood The bbq is the best no doubt , a lot of places may replicate the tikka appearance but some places lack that flavour however splendid view does not lack nothing and their food is one of the best this...town can offer . Anyone can do grilling but no one does what splendid can The food took about 30 mins but if you’re ordering fresh kebabs grilled and tikka then it’s being cooked straight infront of you so you get youur food fresh and tasty. The sauces are insanely good , try the chooza sauce with any of the bbq items it’ll sure make u have a great flavour experienceMore

Had the chance to come here in December with my family Been going to their old branch in town since childhood . This place has maintained its Flavours and perhaps even outdone what they used to do . The place is pretty large with great...variety on the menu . We mostly ordered the bbq as that’s what is the best and to be honest this is what you need to go for. The sauces were just mmmm I literally dribbled it all over my plate and the owners were kind enough to let us go home with extra . Service was great and will definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for great Indian bbq And seafood .More
