Fogo Westlands never disappoints. The meats are sumptuous and fresh and the salad offering generous....

This is the best restaurant in Nairobi. Take it from an expat who is the son of a butcher. Also a consultant in the food industry.

This is a place for all meat lovers! Don't be naive and just skip salad bar, take plate from there and put some ham. Then gauchos with meat on huge skewers will start feeding you until you turn your token to red. $30 for all you can eat meat is a good price.

Food was delicious and kept on coming. The meats were tender and there was something for everyone! Would definitely go back - great value for money!

If you love meat, this is your haven. The beef steak took the prize for me. Absolutely loved it. Sometimes the waiters don't move around efficiently enough so you wait for long before what you want comes. Didn't like the prawns. But overall, would go back.

Quite pricey about $30 per plate and has a buffet arrangement where they "force" you to first eat salads, other foods before the meat is served. By the time the meat starts coming you are almost full. Its a good place for family and friends, small kids also. Desserts are poor so dont expect variety after a good meal.

This is just the spot for Brazilian roasted meats. The service is exemplary and very friendly & homely people attend to you at all times. Perfect for a lazy Sunday's relax.

The meat was delicious, served directly from the skewer and chosen from 16 different types. The staff is really kind and welcome. The atmosphere is quite cheerful. I recommend it for a non traditional local dinner!
