In the early 1970s, Chris Seex, a Kenyan native managing a resort hotel, had a visionary dream of creating Africa’s most exceptional seafood restaurant in Mombasa. The result was the magnificent Tamarind Mombasa, a stunning white building with high arches and a crenelated roof, evoking the charm of a bygone Arab era.

Tamarind Mombasa is a culinary masterpiece and a versatile venue that can accommodate large groups, corporate dinners, and cocktail parties. We pride ourselves on crafting customized menus that cater to your unique tastes. Our private dining room can comfortably seat up to 25 guests for more intimate gatherings for meetings, dinners, and company celebrations. The adjacent lawn, overlooking the old town, provides a picturesque setting for cocktail receptions.

Renowned for its focus on seafood, Tamarind Mombasa utilizes only the finest ingredients. Signature dishes like the tantalizing prawns piri piri, flavorsome chili crab, and delectable lobster have garnered worldwide acclaim and rave reviews from esteemed publications such as Gourmet, The London Times, and The Herald Tribune. Our commitment to personalized service, exquisite presentation, and meticulous attention to detail has solidified Tamarind’s status as one of the premier restaurants in Africa, surpassing the founder’s dreams. With a seating capacity of 160 guests, we ensure that every dining experience at Tamarind Mombasa is unforgettable.

For those seeking accommodation, Tamarind Village Apartments, located on Cement Road in Nyali, Mombasa, offers comfortable stays with complimentary WiFi access and a charming garden featuring an outdoor swimming pool.
