Welcome To Tamarind Mombasa
In the early seventies there were no quality restaurants in Mombasa, and Kenyan born Chris Seex, who was managing a coastal resort hotel at the time, was determined to correct this. One of his ambitions was to create the finest seafood restaurant in Africa. With little financial and moral support he designed and built the Mombasa Tamarind, a dream, which he fulfilled with passion.
Built in Arab style with high arches and a crenellated roof , the elegant, gleaming white building has the perfect setting – a starlit terrace perched on a cliff overlooking the picturesque Old Harbour of Mombasa.
The menu is a blend of the best of French, Asian and African cuisines. The Tamarind's specialty is seafood and only the freshest ingredients are used.The Prawns Piri Piri, Chilli Crab and Lobster have earned the Tamarind restaurant worldwide fame and rave reviews from publications such as Gourmet, the London Times and the Herald Tribune.
Personal service, original presentation and attention to detail has developed Tamarind’s reputation as one of the finest restaurants in Africa, and achieved the ambition of the founder.
The restaurant's seating capacity is 160 people and currently has a staff of 120.
