Visited this restaurant with friends right before it closed it's doors. It was scenic when it was open, and the food was nice.

I attended a friend's birthday lunch at Rusty Nail, and enjoyed the friendly seclusion and staff willingness to attend patiently to each client, even when our ideas are not good for the palate. The Samosas here are a great appetizer

This place was one of the best for steaks and such in the greater Nairobi area (it was in the Karen suburb). Please be aware that it is now closed for good.

Fantastic setting, obviously an old Kenya home transformed into a restaurant. Very relaxed and laid back.

Beautifully decked out, the restaurant boasts splendid decor and great service though I did struggle with over salted dinner.

A lovely outdoor setting with decent food for good value. Far enjoy afternoon meal and drinks in the lush gardens & patio over an evening meal though. Food & service are good though. The "barn" is a great spot to catch a major sporting event...More
