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!

We were a party of 8 in the private dining area. Our waitress was Nunu and she was excellent. The food was delicious and dessert divine and beautifully presented.

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

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!
