Carnivore is revitalizing Kenya kids birthday parties by giving them a chance to celebrate it at the restaurant. Dubbed Blowout the Birthday Candles at Carnivore, plan sees Carnivore cater to the party, provide grounds and playing equipment.
The birthday parties have been held at Carnivore for close to 40 years now and given that schools are closed, the venue is perfect for a parent looking to avoid any extra chores.
“They take place every weekend (Saturday and Sunday) and are planned to the specific needs of the family. We provide the food, which the parents pick from the special toto menu,” said Yvonne Oerlemans, the restaurant's consultant.
The menu includes food such as sausages, chips, chicken, mashed potatoes, spaghetti and many other delicacies. “We can also bake a birthday cake for them or they can come with their own,we are flexible,” said Yvonne.
There are plenty of fun-filled facilities that are accessible to the children such as bouncing castles, trampolines, the resident clown, Xbox games, among others.
There is no age specification, children of all ages are eligible to celebrate their birthday at the restaurant and there is also no limit on how many children or rather how many guests can attend the birthday party. “One can have as many guests as they like, we have plenty of space and it can start as early as they want until closing time, if they wish,” said Yvonne.
“On a given weekend, we host several birthday parties so it is good to book early to reserve your space but we always try and accommodate everyone's request,” said Yvonne.
As for the charges there are no entry charges. “We will only charge for food and drinks and special birthday decorations, if one wants to have them,” Yvonne says, “ we also have a special gift for each birthday kid.”
The kids meals vary from Sh600-Sh700 per child ,so it depend on the number of kids, what they will eat, and of course what the adults will also eat.“There are special rates and discounts for for Jumbo Junior account holders,” says Yvonne.
