Very good food in Kenyan stile. The service is fast and the indoor space nicely decorated. Can be recommended for a taste of local food.

This is a great little restaurant in Nyali. Ratna Square, where the restaurant is located, used to be a hive of activity. Though it is now bordering on derelict, Grill House by Blue Room is squeaky clean, new and well maintaned. On the upside, the downturn of business in the surrounding area means that there is now an overabundance of parking space.

The decor is simple and current. There is a chill area outside where you can catch the game with friends and a small indoor seating area for more private dining. I must warn you however that because of how small the restaurant is, you will never really have a private conversation when the restaurant is full. In fact, you will be in elbow brushing distance of another patron at all times.

Beware of the loud blender. The barman mixes his drinks in a semi-open area between the outdoor and indoor seating.

I have had burgers and a few of the entres at this restaurant. The mutton is particularly tender but they have not mastered the beef. Also, their burger patties are smaller than the bun. Even so, the flavours are well defined and perfectly blended and the prices are just about fair. Service here is sublime. The hostess will not only remember you, she often recalls what you had last time.

Washroom facilities are adequate and clean.

3 stars because nothing really stood out in all my visits.

We live near Grill House and have visited several times. I was hoping the poor quality of the food was just limited to certain items, but sadly, it's everything.

It seems like a Westerner set up this restaurant, not a local. It is very clean and comfortable, has AC, great music, and a fantastic menu. But their cooks are terrible. I once ordered poussin chicken and it was so overcooked it was as hard as a rock, really inedible. Another time I ordered a "philly cheesesteak," which came on regular sandwich bread instead of a traditional roll. The meat was stringy from silverskin which had not been removed - again inedible. We also have tried their desserts, only to be disappointed every time. Their cake was so dry it was inedible. Their ice cream is disgusting.

It's really too bad, because if they could find a capable cook then this would be a good restaurant.

My family and l ate lunch at this place today. It was my first time and l enjoyed it. The grilled meat was good. Joan gave us a good service. We will certainly visit again to try other meals.
