My time at Forodhani Seafront Restaurant was one of the best highlights to my short stay Mombasa in the latter part of last year. The restaurant is located in Old Town Mombasa along Sir Mbarak Rd. My friends and I had gone on aini vacay to Mombasa and vowed to not leave for Nairobi before trying out the great food at the famous Forodhani restaurant. They have a cute little entrance at the side of their yellow coloured building which led into a narrow corridor. I was glad that they were keen on following covid guidelines since at the end of the corridor was a hand washing point and social distance markers on the floor to ensure even as one waits for the other to wash up, social distance is maintained. Upon entry, the first thing one sees is a marvellous view of the crystal blue waters of the Indian Ocean. The sitting arrangement is in two sections and one chooses if one wants a table near the water or on their upper floor a bit further away. We chose a table down the tiny wooden staircase near the water. The nice breeze since it is an open area felt really good because the heat in Mombasa can make body temperatures a bit unbearable. It has a simple cosy dining area and since it is a seafront restaurant the beautiful view of the waters completes the look perfectly. My favorite part about dining here was their delicious finger-licking swahili cuisines and seafood at affordable prices. We had their fish tikka, their food platter which is the best assorted seafood I’ve ever had, sides of rice and fries plus mishikaki . Their biriyani is also really good would 10/10 recommend. For a delicious satisfying meal for four, our bill added up to about Ksh 4600 including their mojitos. On your next trip to the coast don’t miss a chance to eat some nice swahili made dishes at the greatest seafront restaurant in Mombasa.
