BEAST OF A FEAST

THE CARNIVORE IS THE ULTIMATE ‘BEAST OF A FEAST’ A VARIETY OF MEATS INCLUDING OSTRICH, CROCODILE, AND CAMEL, ARE ROASTED OVER CHARCOAL AND CARVED AT YOUR TABLE. DELICIOUS SIDE DISHES AND AN EXCEPTIONAL ARRAY OF SAUCES COMPLEMENT THIS FIXED PRICE FEAST THAT ALSO INCLUDES SOUP, A SELECTION OF DESSERTS, AND KENYAN COFFEE. SET IN ATTRACTIVE TROPICAL GARDENS, THE SERVICE AND THE DÉCOR ARE OUTSTANDING.

THE CARNIVORE OPENED ITS DOORS IN SEPTEMBER 1980 TO INSTANT SUCCESS. THE FOOD, SERVICE, AND ATMOSPHERE WERE STRIKINGLY DIFFERENT FROM ANYTHING IN KENYA AND HAS SINCE PLAYED HOST TO OVER 2 MILLION CUSTOMERS FROM ACROSS THE GLOBE INCLUDING NUMEROUS CELEBRITIES. IN FACT, THE CARNIVORE VISITORS BOOK READ LIKE A GLOBAL WHO IS WHO!

THE ATMOSPHERE COMBINES THE RUSTIC FEEL OF A RURAL SETTING AND A MEDIEVAL BANQUET HALL. ANOTHER FAMOUS FEATURE TO SET THE TONE OF THE CARNIVORE EXPERIENCE IS THE HOUSE COCKTAIL THE ‘DAWA’ (MAGIC POTION IN SWAHILI). IT IS BASED ON A FAMOUS BRAZILIAN DRINK, AND WAS INTRODUCED TO KENYANS AT THE CARNIVORE. IT IS BROUGHT TO YOU ON A PORTABLE TRAY BY THE MEDICINE MAN FITTINGLY NAMED DR. DAWA.

Carnivore is a big name. Everyone goes there, from family outings to meat lovers, to concert goers to companies holding events for their staff. Carnivore is the go to place. It is located in Lang’ata opposite Simba Saloon. A cab from Nairobi town costs KES270. I used to frequent carnivore because of Churchill Show. They used to shoot on Wednesdays and that place would be packed before 8pm. The grounds can host 10,000 people at a good. I used to go a bit earlier to have nyama choma .One of the best I have ever had. For a place that is almost always full, their service is pretty good. The food is always ready. When the show starts, I relax with a couple of beers. They also have this meat buffet. You pay KES3600 per person and as long as you lift your flag, you get more meat. That a meat lovers heaven right? If you haven’t been to carnivore, have you really lived in Nairobi? 10/10 recommend.

3.4/ 5

Whenever I go to Carnivore I know for sure I’m going to get value for my money. They are really very generous with their servings. It’s an open air restuarant located in Langata : a meat lovers paradise. It specializes in meat and all things meat.Their best deal for me which is their commonest is the all you can eat meat buffet :Nyama Choma in particular that’s grilled over charcoal .As long as your flag is lifted the meat party will go on for you until you have your fill.The waiters just go around the restuarant with the meat on skewers and serve whoever lifts their flag up.This offer was 3600 /= per person and the menu is usually fully set. There was a vegetarian option for 2950/= per person . I was also impressed with their wide variety .We also ordered cocktails to down the meat.They were about 700- 800 kshs. Dessert also came after and by the time I was done I was so full I couldn’t even eat the following day .The Nyama Choma is actually juicy and not chewy at all :quite well done. One other thing I love about Carnivore is their customer service. When I went there it was very full because it’s usually common among expatriates but even with the full capacity,the waiters were very friendly and food was served very fast.There are also some shops around where you can buy locally crafted accessories .For meat lovers I’d rate it at 4/5 .But for those who don’t like meat I would advise dining elsewhere.
