Terrific atmosphere - the outdoor seating overlooks the large property with plenty of trees. The Indian food was very tasty, from the palak paneer to the butter chicken. We ordered the pizza on another occasion. It was good, but not on par with the Indian....More

Set in 21 acres of Karen, a leafy suburb twenty kilometers Southwest of Nairobi, lies the Purdy Arms. With a view of the famed knuckled ridge of the Ngong Hills (“I had a farm in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong Hills” – Karen Blixen, Out of Africa) it is a relaxing place to stay, have a meal or drink or two.
