Consistently good service & delicious food. Steaks are good and so is the duck. The Vegetarian Stack is also a delicious option. They cater very well for allergies if you advise them in advance. You cannot leave without having the Valrhona Chocolate ball. This 5...More

It was a pleasure to sit back, relax and enjoy short of fine dining. The waiter knew the menu well and made some excellent suggestions for a lovely meal.

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!
