The service: The entire meal costs around 3390 Ksh per person along with taxes. The carnivore was rated amongst the 50 best theme restaurant of the world by ‘Restaurant’ magazine; they have described it to be ‘amazing’. The restaurant has a seating arrangement of 420 people, a total cosmopolitan crowd comprising Europeans, African, Asians and Chinese people.
Adjacent to the main restaurant is the Simba saloon which is a popular food joint in the city and a night club. It has a seating arrangement of 450 people and a concert hall that can accommodate 2000 people at a time. It serves pizza, hamburger and other chicken delicacies.
We had a view of the huge grill which had iron plates with meat roasting on it. It was said to have a temperature over 800 degrees and was specially brought when the restaurant was established. Carnivore has got two branches- in Nairobi and in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The Verdict: We had fabulous times, awesome experience of tearing roasted meat from Masai swords brought directly from the oven. Felt as if it was a blend of the ancient African culture and the modern European cuisine shaking hands to please the guests. The very sight of the signboard pleased us as we were taking a leave from this great eating experience. I will never forget the hospitality of the staff, the ambience, the taste and the rustic feel. This experience made me feel like time machine has brought us back to those paleo ages once more. My suggestion to a visitor in Nairobi is that never miss this great opportunity ‘Beast of the Feast’.
