Foodies and seafood lovers often rate their stay at Che Shale as a great food experience, while meat enthusiasts and vegetarian are also happily catered to.
Our cuisine is a blend of international cuisine enhanced by local flavors and spices such as ginger, coriander coconut, mango, turmeric and more. We are blessed with abundant seafood year-round and beautiful produce, with a great variety of fruits and vegetables grown in Kenya.
Gather around the bar or on our chill platform in the evening for sundowners. Share stories with fellow guests or play a game of Jenga. Ask your barman for a Dawa for something truly Kenyan, or a refreshing Mojito with our own hydroponic-grown fragrant mint.

Don’t leave without indulging in our tasty Mangrove Crabs or Blue Swimmer Crabs - our favorite is the Wok-Tossed Crab in Ginger and Oyster Sauce. Our restaurant is also well-known for serving our home-grown Soft Shell Crabs. They are a true delicacy for any seafood lover and we serve them Golden Crispy with a delicious Mango Salsa.
