And this is what they had to say about Amaica under the topic – Kenya’s Best Cultural Restaurants: Exploring East African Cuisine,

Amaica is one of the few formal restaurants in Nairobi serving authentic Kenyan cuisine, including indigenous foods such as wild mushrooms, bambara nuts, groundnuts and white ants. ‘Amaika’, which refers to the traditional cooking area in Luhya (a Bantu language in Western Kenya), is a fitting name for the restaurant, which prides itself onemploying traditional cooking methods and cookware.

The lunch buffet is particularly attractive, featuring special dishes representing different regions across the country and local delicacies such as smoked beef, fried fish, chapatis, and ugali. Amaica’s interior is a stylish combination of African and contemporary décor clad with beautiful wooden furniture, decorative calabashes and iron sculptures. With pleasant outdoor seating and a luscious garden, Amaica is great for family outings or a general city escape. Read more at
