I'm a regular at the food court that was recently renovated. And can i just say "thank u"for dividing the food court into a smoking and non-smoking area. I love the changes and it look like it came with an attitude adjustment from the waiters. They are more friendly. Prime cuts is just the place to eat. The food is... More

One of my favorite meeting places. Casual, outside food court with plenty of variety and everyone of the many guest I have taken there has found food they enjoyed. I love the seafood place's garlic crab in a shell, Dorman's Ice coffee and Planet Yogurts, frozen yogurt. I think it is the best frozen yogurt anywhere and far better than... More

We went to the Village Market on Friday, the day that the traveling Maasai Market was there. Our intent, therefore, was not to shop in the stores of the mall itself, but to find the Maasai Market. That week, it was held outside the mall (by the big water slide that looked like great fun!) It was very hard to... More

I regularly (over 30 times) went to Kenya on business in ' 10 ' 11 and '12, sometimes for a few weeks at a time. As I was there for work I didn't really get out into the country much and after a while Nairobi can become quite boring, like any other city. I really enjoyed calling my taxi buddy... More
