The Carnivore is in its 34th year and still maintains the reputation as the ultimate 'Beast of a Feast'. Since its opening in 1980 The Carnivore has gone through a series of evolutions.

Originating as a medium size nyama choma restaurant with a theatrical flair, the Main Restaurant has continued growing from strength to strength and has served over 3.5 million meals in its time.  



The Simba Saloon has undergone a dramatic refurbishment with new bars, décor, furniture, sound and lights.  The children’s playground has also been rebuilt to provide Nairobi’s youngest community with fine playground facilities.  

Initially a family snack restaurant by day and night club and discothèque by night, The Simba now hosts concerts,  elaborate cultural nights and Churchill’s weekly televised chat/comedy show. Both the Carnivore and the Simba are the market leaders in hosting corporate functions, weddings and exhibitions.
