Centrally located at the heart of Nairobi, easily accessible, K'Osewe is great haven for African food. The food is fresh and well cooked. The place is usually busy over peak hours and good to visit early lunch or dinner.

I cannot recall. Although the food is displayed in a buffet like manner, each dish is priced separately. It is definitely inexpensive and affordable by Nairobi standards.
