Have you seen my post about the first time I was at the Norfolk? In case you missed it, click here to read
I hadn’t really planned to have dinner at the Norfolk. Although I had a nice time, I didn’t really like their waitress so I wasn’t sure I’d get good service.
This particular Sunday I wanted to eat out so we picked a nice hotel in the town. Nairobi is really slow on Sundays but we weren’t half prepared for what we encountered.
Disappointed at Metro Hotel – No Fries
At the Metro hotel, the peeps were pleasant enough though I could smell smoke in the main dining area. We choose to sit at the balcony instead.
Can you imagine making over 5 orders and each time the waitress tells you they don’t have that? I wanted to have fish, or beef but there were no potatoes for my order. Anyway gotta thank my lucky stars because that’s how we decided to eat at The Norfolk.
Wow Dreams! The Tatu Restaurant
Someone had mentioned that the Tatu restaurant was a great place. It is right at the entrance to the main lobby. At the door, we found a waiter (too bad I forgot his name) but he absolutely delighted my son by helping him through the menu choices. We ordered a beef steak with french fries, vegetable salad, chicken with fries, chicken with mashed potatoes.
While we were waiting for our meal, the pleasant waiter brought some chef special -7 types of dough baked together to make one bread. All the pieces have different origins and menus and you may separate as you eat (sorry didn’t get a pic but will go back and request for one)
All the meals were tastefully done in just under half an hour. It’s too bad I forgot to take pictures of our meal but am planning to request for complimentary photos from the restaurant.
My First Dessert…
I don’t like dessert but this time I let the waiter choose something for me and guess what? Spoiler alert it was two scoops of ice cream –chocolate and vanilla. It’s long since I had so much to eat in one sitting.
… And Complimentary Breads!
And guess what! Because I commented on how good their bread was, I got two complimentary breads to take home. If you plan to visit the Nairobi, try Tatu restaurant at Fairmont the Norfolk. The waiter was more pleasant and helpful which is not at all what we had experienced earlier with the ladies (the outdoor coffee place)
