The Tamarind Seafood Experience
Open daily for lunch and Dinner (closed on Sundays)
The Tamarind Restaurant in Nairobi offers a wide selection of exotic seafood brought daily fresh from the coast and prepared to international standards.
The Tamarind Nairobi opened its door in 1977 and has become the finest seafood restaurant in the capital. A wide selection of exotic seafood is brought daily fresh from the coast and prepared to our exacting standards.
Set in an atmosphere of quiet sophisticated elegance, the décor is enhanced by the beautiful stained glass windows made by renowned Kenya artist Nani Croze, and the exceptional painting by famed Kenyan artist Tonio Trezbinski.,
The food and the surroundings have made it Nairobis most popular up-market restaurant, and it is seldom possible to get a table without a reservation..
The menu is a blend of the best of French Asian and African cuisines with the same famous specialties as Tamarind Mombasa. There is a mezzanine bar and private dining room which can cater for up to 20 people. The ground floor restaurant caters for 80 people.

Tropical lobsters are correctly known as "langouste" or "spiny rock lobster" and do not have claws but are excellent eating. Since they come in varying sizes, we sell them by the 100 grams. Bearing in mind that 70 percent of a lobster is carapace (shell), a small portion is 500 grams, a medium 700 grams and for the healthy appetite, a large one is 900 grams or more.
The Kenyan species of crabs are one of the best eating in the world. They are best served as they are, but if you would like us to do the work and take the shell off, please let us know when we take your order. We will supply all the implements needed; cracker, bib, lobster pick and a large finger bowl. Fingers are a must!
All our prawns come from the Indian Ocean off the East African coast. If you insist on having the shells removed, please ask, but we think they are best left in the shell to retain their succulence.
