Kavey I have a .PDF version of a Kenya Restaurant Guide with a Nairobi section but I seem to no longer have your email address. If you have a public address to post or still have mine I will send it to you and you can get a preview of some options until you can get your hands on the one Sandi mentioned.

Have a great trip by the way.

Den, mine should always show next to my user name at the top of every post I make?
THANKS I'd appreciate a copy of the guide!

Carnivore may not be the best restaurant, but it is an experience.

Im reading way too much but not enough!

Thanks for the hand held tour of the information next to your name in every single post! I actually looked through my emails for your address or did I?

My TV did not work this morning when I wanted to watch the news; this makes me think it is not plugged in!

Will send file momentarily, Den

Heh, heh, no worries Den. Not many posters here choose to display an email address. I do as I get an occasional email regarding a post I've made and am happy to help if I can. Thanks for that PDF!

Den's Kenyan food guide is useful too:

Suggestions includebr />
High-end dining
================

Mandhari Restaurant (which is handily in my hotel, the Nairobi Serena)

Tamarind (in the National Bank)

Flametree (in the Panafric Hotel)

Karen Golf & Country Club

Mercury Lounge (in ABC Place)

The Summit (in the Grand Regency Hotel)

Then there's a list of top 10 restaurants where the writer picks one restaurant for each category, and also provides some runner up recommendations

Category Recos
===============

African/ Kenyan = Amaica (China Centre, Ngong Road)

Chinese = China Jiangsu (Soin Arcade, Westlands)

Contintental = Pango Brasserie (Fairview Hotel, Bishops Road)

Ethopian = Habesha (Argwings Kodhek Road, Hurlington)

French = Alan Bobbe's Bistro (Riverside Drive)

Grills = Carnivore (Langata Road)

Indian = Open House (Crossroads Shopping Centre, Langata Road, Karen)

Italian = Osteria del Chianti (Lenana Road, Hurlington)
[Mediterraneo is runner up]

Japanese = Misono (Lenana Road, Hurlington)

Nyama Choma = Njuguna's (OPP, ABC Place)

Thai = Thai Chi (Stanley Hotel)

And there's a special mention for Blanco's (Argwings Kodhek Road, Hurlington)

BTW we'll definitely eat in our hotel on arrival (assuming we're hungry/ it's still open at that time).

The other night we'll play by ear but with the recos here in mind.
