DELECTABLE THINGS YOU MUST TRY WHILE AT NYAMA MAMA

By  | 

Nyama Mama, a modern day African roadside diner, opened doors to its flagship restaurant at Delta Towers, Westlands. After a successful opening of Nyama Mama Xpress Yaya Centre and Village Market in 2016, the new outlet introduces a host of yet more innovative dishes and Mama’s famed signature cocktails.

Spread across two floors with a seating capacity of 150pax, an eclectic bar area and lounge space, Nyama Mama brings to life Mama’s inspiration through her travels across East and West Africa. Her passion to bring home-style dishes with her own modern twist on them has been a hit with Nairobi residents.

Diners can also enjoy a selection of refreshing cocktails with their meal, from Cocktail Tins and Mama’s Medicine to unique boozy milkshakes.

Mama’s African inspiration goes beyond her food. She is giving diners a distinctive experience from the moment they step into the restaurant; through the use of brightly coloured Kitenge fabric, furniture hand-made by local craftsmen and washbasins reminiscent of those on a roadside Kibanda.

For those looking for a bit more privacy, there is a private dining area on the second floor that can also be turned into an event space.

Mama’s unique take on Kenyan food and culture has not gone unnoticed by international travellers. The UK’s Evening Standard recently recommended it as a must visit on the Nairobi scene and comparable to a unique concept that would just as easily fit into London’s vibrant restaurant scene.
