We went for Christmas Eve dinner and were quite sorry for our decision, as the chef doesn't have the slightest idea about a cook's job: If you order the salad, expect peices of carrot so thick that they can't even be pinched with a fork...More

We recently went to Tamambo for the nth time, and it appears that we shall not visit again as all three of us experienced diarrhea, not a pleasant way to finish a Sunday!

Nice selection of Kenyan and pan-African food. Really nice service, also has a bar area. We've gone there a couple times already and would go again. They have enough specials that the menu doesn't get old.

This is one of my favourite spots. The food is always great and the service friendly. Especially try the ginger lemon tea (best I've had)! The atmosphere is simple and relaxed and they have live music every week.
