5 Affordable Restaurants in the CBD

written by Eugene Mburu 27th November 2014

Born and raised in this beautiful city of Nairobi, I have a pretty aplomb understanding of the food scene and what the it has to offer. To say the Culinary scene has evolved for the better is definitely an understatement. We have a new restaurant opening up every other week, be it an internationally acclaimed chain of fine dining restaurants, a fast food franchise, or a local restaurant serving up authentic home cooked meals, we have it all. And all these establishments are a stone throw away from your office if you work in the CBD.

And worry not if you are a penny pincher or frugal spender when it comes to eating out, this list offers you affordable options of where to grab great meals and affordable prices.

Bhandini transports you to Northern India in first-class style with fine cuisine and a sophisticated setting. The Chef works his culinary magic in a glass-enclosed kitchen so you can see what goes into dishes.

If you are into grabbing a quick meal from a fast food joint, then Debonairs and Steers have got you covered with there combo specials, buy one get one free offfers on select days and their ridiculously tasty flame grilled meals.


For a breakfast coffee with tasty pastries, then you will not go wrong with the new Java opposite Nation Centre. The blend and serve the best coffee all day every day and I would suggest you grab yourself their kingsize Samosa that sells for only Ksh. 180 and is the size of deliciousness exaggerated.

If you want some authentic African meals, then make your way down to Ranalo’s aka Kosewe for the best tasting African food you have never had. And chances are you will run into some prominent politiacians and celebrities. This place is always flocked with conversation, great food and an undeniable ambiance.

You know what I like and cannot do without, crispy fried chicken and who better to get rid of that craving than KFC. Their chicken that is coated in a secret recipe of 21 spices is always that taste of heaven in my mouth. A moment on the lips, forever on the hips. But I love it.
