Tamarind Restaurant information
Kenya’s most prestigious restaurant chain runs Nairobi’s best seafood restaurant, located in the monumental National Bank Building. The splendid menu offers all manner of exotic flavours, and the lavish dining room is laid out in a sumptuous modern Arabic-Moorish style. Starters range from Hibiscus-flamed seafood to an exquisite seafood platter.
Smart dress is expected, and you’ll need to budget at least KSh2500 for the full works – much more if you want wine or cocktails and lobster – though seafood gourmands agree that it’s money well spent. There's another outpost at Karen Blixen Coffee Garden .
