If it was not a dear friend who introduce this place to us, we would have not discovered this treasure trove that served excellent African dishes. I personally would not have gone in by myself as the look the this place itself was not all that inviting.

Situated on Banda Street (close to city market), The Rayan Hotel and Restaurants served a mixture of continental and African cuisines. I was recommended to try the African dishes which was indeed good.

Our personal favourite is the Dailo : Baked young goat. This dish is really delicious with the goat meat baked to perfection, slightly moist and the aromatic of the firewood was simply amazing! At only 400 KSH, this dish can easily served up to 3 people, accompanied with the Pilau rice.
Half portion of the Pilau Rice which comes with a good size chunk of Dailo ~ Easily feed 2 person at only 220 KSH!

Out of curiosity, we actually tried the Alleso : Boiled young goat and to our surprise, there was not a hint of the pungent goat smell which I fear most. The Dailo is still my favorite.

As I mentioned, this place does not look that inviting hence, we always do take-out and enjoy it at the comfort of our home.

My name is Joe Pinzone and I'm casting an international travel show about expats moving abroad. We'd love to film in Kenya and wanted to know if you could help us find expats who have moved there within the last 15 months or have been there for 3-4 years, but recently moved into a new home. The show documents their move to a new country and will place the country in fabulous light. The contributors on the show would also receive monetary compensation if they are filmed. If you'd like more information, please give me a call at 212-231-7716 or skype me at joefromnyc. You can also email me at Looking forward to hearing from you.
