Wanted to taste Kenyan traditional food and when a friend directed me here, I thought otherwise but when I got to order my food and had it on my table, I got to experience traditional delicacy and was great

Centrally located at the heart of Nairobi, easily accessible, K'Osewe is great haven for African food. The food is fresh and well cooked. The place is usually busy over peak hours and good to visit early lunch or dinner.

This restaurant is just perfect for African food. They serve it piping hot and fresh. It's always full and noisy: sort of like the sweet spot of a college party. But they run out of food early and that have trouble keeping the place clean...More

Great place to go to sample Kenyan cuisines. The staff were more than helpful and explained what everything was before we ordered. I had coconut fish with chapati and my brother had fried fish and u galileo and sukuma wiki. Really tasty and reasonably priced.

I cannot recall. Although the food is displayed in a buffet like manner, each dish is priced separately. It is definitely inexpensive and affordable by Nairobi standards.
