Under control, at the moment.

Food(fingers mostly) is the winner here. Been here about 5 times in over 2 years though. Regular patrons may be of different opinion. It need better ventilation and more spacing though, seems I was right to avoid the basement. Hygiene is good, happened to be finishing up and witnessed the... read more

It was one of the best restaurants in town but now the service is poor and the fish fingers are not as tasty as they used to be. Something needs to be done!

For the longest time, Greenview has been the place to go to if you were looking to get value for your money, large portions and delightful meals. Unfortunately, lately this has not been the case as I experienced in my last 3 visits to the restaurant. Personally, my favorite meals here are the peppersteak and chicken in masala sauce. My...

Good service, but it wasn't that full at the time. Great food for the value. the fries were crunchy, which was awesome. The ginger tea could use real ginger though. I'd go back again.

As a long time patron of this establishment, I have noticed that though Greenview maintained its standards for a very long time, they have now started to decline. Their signature meal of fish fingers had been my all time favourite here and the last time I was there my portion wasn't fresh. Spoilt fish simply can't even be swallowed and... More

It's a really inexpensive place and I really recommend that you come hungry as food comes in plenty. My problem is the poor ventilation, especially on the bottom floor, it can get too stuffy. Another issue is that as you approach the stairs to access the top floor, there is a foul smell, I thought it was just on that... More

Can't go wrong with their fish fingers (signature dish) or chicken. Definitely one of the best bang-for-your-buck restaurants within Nairobi CBD. Sitting space is a bit crammed and they should definitely improve the ventilation (gets really hot when the place is full).

Came here during lunch one day with a friend. It actually gets quite busy, you'll probably find yourself sharing a table if your party doesn't take up all the seats. The service is super friendly! And the food is excellent - Greenview is best known for its fish fingers, which are served with rice, chapati or chips, for just 300ksh.... More
