Fodor's Review

Hands down the finest seafood restaurant in town, Tamarind is famous for its deep-fried crab claws, ginger crab, and piri piri (spicy, buttery prawns grilled over charcoal). Everything is flown up daily from the coast, including the Malindi sole and the Kilifi oysters, tiny but very flavorful and served either raw or as classic oysters Rockefeller. Try the delicious kokonda, based on a famous dish from Fiji—raw fish and shrimp are marinated in lime juice, coconut cream, fennel, mustard seed, and local chili peppers. The restaurant has moved from Nairobi's CBD to the lovely Karen Blixen Coffee Garden.
