I was torn between chicken and beef biryani but I finally settled on the chicken biryani, promising myself to sample the beef one on my next visit. My friend ordered the spaghetti bolognaise.

As we waited for our food, we glanced at several customers’ orders and their foods looked mouth-watering. The aroma and food presentation was top-notch.

Seeing people enjoy their savoury dishes made me hungrier.

Within a few minutes, our food was served and we dug in.

My chicken biryani was served with fresh salad and a thick gravy. The chicken was soft and the gravy blended in well. The rich flavours exploded in my mouth with my first spoonful.

Since my first visit, I have gone back to Majid five times, and counting, but my most memorable experience was the chicken biryani on my first visit.

If you visit Nakuru and are looking for a place to excite your taste buds, try out Majid Restaurant.
