You name it you have it for the breakfast. Have been there twice for breakfast and one dinner. You have all continental and few Indian choices. Excellent service. The only thing you can probably complain is that they do not serve water and a liter of water is charged at 400 Kenyan shillings equivalent to USD$4 plus!!

The morning Buffet spread was good and the staff are very courteous in helping. Their fruit juice was very fresh and it was like eating the ral fruit. The Masala tea served here is a must taste awesome.

The Buffet at the Terrace offers you a wide array of culinary experience from the local Kenyan Cuisine - Ugali, Githeri to some great African delicacies. It seems like they have an answer to every palate.

The Terrace restaurant has somewhat acceptable quality buffet. But don't go there for la carte order. I waited 40 min for a single burger during lunch time, and when it was served, the meat was completely over-cooked, super dry and tasteless. I couldn't return it back because I wouldn't wait for another 40min for that. Even the KFC at the... More

The Terrace has a wide selection at all meal times. I however think that some ingenuity in the offering is needed, especially because regulars may find very little surprise in the taste of food, and the feel of the restaurant. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

The Terrace offers a wide spread of dishes both during breakfast and dinner. The food is clearly labelled for those with special dietary requirements. The choice for vegetarian main courses are limited. Dessert spread is very good. Staff are very friendly and try to accomodate any special requests. Overall a good dining experience.
