A BEAST OF A FEAST, SINCE 1980
Leg of lamb, pork, ostrich, rump of beef, sirloin, rack of lamb, spare ribs, sausages, skewered kidneys, even crocodile
Meats are roasted on traditional maasai swords over a huge charcoal pit that dominates the restaurant's entrance. The rough-hewn beams combine the rustic feel of a rural setting with that of a medieval banqueting hall.
The Carnivore doesn't conform to the familiar restaurant traditions. First, the soup of the day along with a plate of home baked bworn bread and butter are served. Then, an army of carvers move table to table, swords laden carving juicy cuts onto sizzling cast-iron plates. Accompanying the meat feast is a selection of salads, vegetable side dishes and sauces
The feeding frenzy doesn't stop until you declare defeat by lowering the white paper flag perched atop the central tray. This is then followed by dessert and coffee. The full meal including the soup course is at a set price. A vegetarian menu is also offered.
Experience the house cocktail, the 'dawa' - medicine or magic potion in swahili. Based on a famous Brazilian drink, enjoy it delivered on a portable tray by the medicine man fittingly named Dr. Dawa

THE LEADING SEAFOOD RESTAURANT
In the early 70s there were no quality restaurants in Mombasa, Kenyan born Chris Seex who was managing a resort Hotel at the time was determined to correct this. His dream was to create Africa's finest seafood restaurant. With a little financial and moral support, he designed the Mombasa Tamarind - built with high arches and a crenellated roof, the elegant white building is a throwback to a bygone Arab era with the perfect setting - a starlit terrace perched atop a cliff overlooking the picturesque Mombasa's old harbour.
The menu is a creative blend of the best of French, Asian and African cuisines. The specialty is seafood and only the finest ingredients are used. The prawns piri piri, chili crab and lobster have earned the restaurant worldwide acclaim and rave reviews from international publications such as Gourmet, The London Times, and The Herald Tribune. Personalised service, original presentation and meticulous attention to detail has cemented Tamarind's reputation as one of the finest restaurants in Africa, fulfilling the founder's dream in spectacular fashion. The restaurant has a seating capacity of 160 pax
Tamarind Mombasa can cater for large groups, corporate dinners and cocktail parties. We will tailor a menu to suit your tastes. Attached to the restaurant is the private dining room which can seat up to 25 guests for meetings, dinner and company celebrations. The lawn outside overlooking the old town is ideal for cocktail receptions.
