Was with my friend coming down from Nyeri town to the town of Nanyuki for lunch we spot the great writing on the roof: eat at the EATERY but looking in through the open door we see a hair drier. WTH at this point, we go wild african navigation mode so we spot a tourist van stopping at the eatary... More

So Sorry to hear you wanted to use us during renovations! To make it clear- we are going through and exciting expansion plan over the next few months.... The Eatery restaurant is closed while we do this, but the Get beautiful salon remains open. In short by May this year we will become the 'Courtyard Arcade,' which will comprise of... More

We were in Nanyuki for one night only and I looked up restaurant reviews on trip advisor. I was wary about going to the Eatery based on the first review since it was negative. We decided to check it out though. And BOY wasn't it awesome! The tree tomato juice is the best I have ever tasted in my life!... More

On getting into the restaurant, yes, a warm welcome is given.but that was just one of three good things noted. Waited a while to get a menu, more than five minutes, which to me is long considering it is such a small place, and everyone I found there had alady been served. When the lady to be my steward appeared... More

Oh please do! come back!

Thanks so much for your input- yes we have of course had a word with the... More

Very friendly and helpful. The fish was perfectly cooked in a nice dill sauce. The vegetables weren't overdone and the lettuce in the salad was very fresh. The only thing lacking was a roll.

I feel I must have been going to the wrong place as I have no idea how the Eatery keeps getting 5 stars. Each time we go the food is basic and the owner rude and unhelpful. We have stopped going as there are so many better places in Nanyuki to eat.

For good food The Eatery is definitely worth a visit. Garlic mushrooms, pepper steak and cake for afters along with soft drinks and masala tea came to a very reasonable KSH1500 (there or therabouts). The location is clean and having a view of the kitchen and therefore seeing the chef preparing your food is a nice change. Its not particularly... More

The Eatery Restaurant has to be closed for exciting renovations during early 2013.(However The 'Get Beautiful salon' remains open) By May 2013 we re-open as the 'Courtyard Arcade', comprising of 9 shops and a NEW outdoor courtyard restaurant... alongside our popular salon, which is in process of moving within the same property to a new spot (but remains open!)
