Peaceful and serene

This is a nice place to come for privacy It's quiet and quite peaceful with a homey feel to it I love the posters on the wall with vintage Hollywood movies The service is remarkable with a fairly priced menu I also recommend it as a cafe to visit when solo

Food excellent and really well priced. Good selection on menu and daily specials as well. Local beers and fresh juices, tea etc. Lots of locals in it. Has free wifi as well. Front restaurant is cafe like, formica tables, bench seating. Back room bit more stylised with usual TVs showing football. Dress is very casual. Security guard on door.

I walked into this restaurant with my wife, and found an empty table where we proceeded to sit. One of the waitresses approached us and mentioned curtly that no food could be served in that section and that we should move to another table. This is was interesting since none of us made a request for food and the waitress... More

Something homely about this place, i always hang out here on the cafe side as its quieter and i always enjoy their wall hangings 'boulevard of broken dreams'.Their juice is fresh and most of their baked items.

Hi. My sincere gratitude for your apprecition and comments of Pasara. The series of pictures on "Broken Dreams" are so meaningful and lesson learning. Glad you enjoy them. Next visit check-out the other side depicting Nairobi around the time of WW1. Nostalgia. We sincerely appreciate your patronage. Karibu. More

An unfortunate experience. Having pointed to and ordered from the break fast menu for eggs and bacon, only the eggs appeared. We then asked for the bacon which came separately and was charged for as an extra. An attempt to clear it up with the waitress was clearly not getting through. The manager at first would not come to the... More

Hi. My sincere double apology - one for the delay in responding and the other one for the unfortunate breakfast experience at Pasara. We have revamped our menu since then and anticipate that it is now more clearer for both our valued customers and staff to interpret the offerings and pricing. Please be assured that Pasara continues to be "value... More
