From the enthusiastic opening of the front door to the wave of waiters eager to serve. One would be forgiven for thinking they all had equal shares in the business. My medium jichana steak with a truffel mushroom sauce and mash was exquisite. Well done...More

When you walk in, you think you're going to be paying much more than you do. The restaurant has a very high class design about it, and the prices are reasonable too! You've have got to try the Norwegian Salmon!

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!
