If you eat a great meal somewhere, the smell and taste can etch in your brain forever, don’t you agree? In fact, right now as I write this piece, my mind is right back to the tasty, crunchy-long prawns I had at the Bamboo restaurant.
BAMBOO ORIENTAL RESTAURANT
From my experience, the Bamboo Restaurant at Zen Gardens serves the best oriental cuisine that Nairobi has to offer –from Thai to Chinese to Japanese. Located in the leafy green suburbs of Spring Valley, the Bamboo restaurant has a good aesthetic appeal from the moment you walk in; it’s a perfect place for special occasions, business meetings or family outings.
As I walked through the doors of the restaurant and into the main dining area, there were 2 things that struck me: 1) The great stunning decor with a Pan-Asian twist; and 2) the view of the manicured lawns as well as the lovely flowers that had adored the tables.We kicked off the afternoon with a glass of cold juice– rich, fresh and delicious. As I sipped on mine, I instantly felt relaxed and enjoyed the tranquil surrounding.
Next, the Chef passed by our table and briefed us what to expect – from the starter to the main course to the dessert; I must say at that point I was really excited and looking forward to my meal!
We had three starters: 1) Prawn tempura served with light soy ; 2) Green papaya with cherry tomatoes, bean sprouts, roasted peanut with lemon dressing; and 3) Firecracker sushi. The prawns were my favorite as they were crunchy and very delicious – definitely was the highlight for me!
Next it was time for the main course, a selection of Thai curry chicken, Grilled fillet fish, Udon noodles and Shanghai rice.
Bamboo Oriental Restaurant is a sterling example of why it tops as one of the best restaurants in Nairobi. The impeccable service, authentic food, stunning decor and beautiful landscape views puts Bamboo restaurant on par with Nairobi’s strongest restaurant contenders; and if you love Pan Asian cuisines, then you got to try the Bamboo Oriental Restaurant.
