The place has good ambience, the food is quite scrumptious and served in filling portions. Service by waiters was so prompt and kind. A special shout out to Jackson! Thanks for you friendly and prompt service! I hope mom brings us back here again 🤩

We stayed at the Tribe for our trip to Nairobi and the staff went above and beyond every day for the entire trip. I'd like to specifically thank Raymond, Jackson, and Joseph at Jiko for their attention to detail, friendliness, and willingness to help with...anything we needed. From drink recommendations to chats about local cuisine and culture, these gentlemen made the restaurant an absolute delight. I recommend Jiko to anyone traveling to Nairobi whether you're staying at the Tribe Hotel or not. If you are looking for a coffee and nothing else, don't leave without finding Raymond and having him make you a custom drink that will hit the spot every single time.More

I took my family for late lunch. Amazing place, lovely ambience, great vibes. The food was absolutely delicious. George served us but honestly, even though he had a bad day you don’t have to show your guests. I asked a few questions but he was...not helpful at all. I work for Marriott international and I know what the brand is all about. Triza( toto) at the bar was helpful and very engaging. I’ll definitely be back…More
