Amazing staff

This place feels very relaxed. There is a clear absence of management but the staff don't seem to need it. They are attentive and friendly not because anyone is making them be, but because they are genuinely great people. I have been here many times and will return because of the friendly... read more

Well arranged table, with flower petals added, very good service from the waiter Sorry! forgot his name!!) good food and best of all the birthday cake complete with candles. Will definitely recommend. Thank you Team Corner Affair.

We were frequent visitors to the Corner Bistro but haven't been for over two years!!! What happened!!! How could it go from so good to so bad. The pizza was terrible. Starter took over 45 min. Despite asking for the Manager, he never bothered to come over until such a time that my normally very patient husband got very mad!!!

Decent place that seems to have changed hands (and management over the last 3-4 years. Nice atmosphere. Drinks served cold the way they are supposed to be.

This place has pretty good food and wine. Some of the menu items are innovative, and some are not. In an era when the Nairobi garden restaurant is fading, this place carries the flag. The ambiance if fairly good at night, and good enough during the day. My biggest complaints have always been about the speed of service and especially... More

My first visit to Corner Affair Bistro was when they first opened and it was New Year's Eve....they unceremoniously bundled us out the door by 10.30 pm. The last time I visited, it was the same. By 10.15 pm, the waitress came to advise us that they were closing and we had to leave. We had just finished our meal... More

I have been here multiple times. First time was for a business lunch and their alarm kept going off. Doesn't really make for the most audible conversation. The sandwich I had was great. Very fresh. 2nd time was dinner with a friend. They had set the tables and my plate was dirty. I pointed it out to the waiter who... More

This is a restaurant that clearly caters for the Expats. The meal is very average and very over priced. Service from the staff was good. Unfortunately smoking is allowed at the outside tables so the table next to you does have their smoke coming across to you during your dinner. Ambiance is good while sitting outside, with candle lit tables.... More
