I like the setting and the food, unless you try beef like my friend .. It is more like a rock .. The chicken is very good and I can recommend the rice dishes in general. Service is a bit slow but understandable in the...More

Thank you for our lovely dinner! We had mutton jeera, grilled mutton, kachumbari, matoke and chapatti. Loved everything. The staff were attentive and made us comfortable. Definitely recommend dining here if you want to try local cuisine.

The food is excellent, good variety, prices ok, but as often in Kenya you might need to be patience for the food to arrive. Only 'down side' is the pool table, stay away from it.

Been there twice for dinner during my holidays. Specially recommend chicken dishes, as the beef is not well cooked. The cuisine is good, the taste is excellent. The service is ok.

First time I’ve had dinner at African Pot in years, service, cleanliness, food, less than average. Had beef pileau, sauce, rice, excellent. Beef was possibly the toughest meat I’ve ever tasted. My date had kuku pileau, it was very good. Tusker was cold, prices moderate.

Nice staff but you have to choose your order well, I ordered a 1/2kg steak it was the worst pice in my life, very hard to chew.

Specially recommend the matoke - green bananas cooked in a tomato sauce have the taste and texture similar to potato but MUCH nicer
