Whenever you are here for lunch, go for the a la carte menu rather than the buffet. That is what we did and it was fantastic. Starting with the service, the waiters are keen to advice you on the menu according to your personal preferences. The food was delish and in the process i closed a deal.

This the regular buffet dining Restaraunt at the Serena hotel, Nairobi. The ambience is very good, both inside and outside on the veranda. The food is very good and a wide selection of starters, main course and deserts. The service is very good, friendly and efficient. An ideal place for lunch with friends!
