The Talisman Restaurant Karen is according to Raila Odinga Junior discriminating against children on the playing field.
Odinga says that some toys on the field were specially meant for ‘White kids.’
@DonaldBKipkorir so that place of yours Talisman Karen has a racists playground some toys are only available for white children, worst choice for Brunch ever.

The tweet went viral with more Kenyans breaking their silence on the racism issue at the restaurant located on Ngong Road.
Here are some of their comments:
My Dear Brother … Will speak to them … Children can’t be discriminated on the basis of their skin color.

When I was looking for a wedding venue, first they wouldn't respond to emails. Then they said they couldn't shut down the restaurant for a day because of their "regular customers." Even though it was a Thursday wedding… I got the impression they weren't there for black Kenyans.

Talisman is racists AF! Since forever. I used to go there b/c of their cheese samosas & they would turn away black 'suspect' people claiming that all the 37 or so unoccupied tables have been 'reserved'. And, this was done by the very black waiters and supervisors ??

This is so true been there and experienced the same thing ……the waiters just kept looking at us instead of serving and when a white person walks in the service is so fast.
We just left after 20 mins of waiting.

I used to do their accounts. They were struggling to handle me with decorum. Racist restaurant.

True..over-hyped food not worth its salt! Full of preening white Kenyans who honestly speaking, as they still feel superior to the locals whose country they're in….should haul off back to where they came from!
