My family and I had the option of a few grill places in December and decided to visit Grill Jichana. I must admit that we all had a great experience, the meals were cooked to perfection and the service was first class.

A modern and stylish Grill/Steakhouse that offers a short and sizzling menu. The meaning of Jichana, "eating good" in Swahili, embraces the flavours and aromas of the original east Coast of Africa's spice route. Cassia, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, turmeric and pepper. These robustly flavoursome spices complement the grilling of meat, fish and chicken creating Jichana!
