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

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 atmosphere. I hope that the staff who make... 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

Food was good but service was really slow the night we came. We had a big group so that might have been the problem.

Used to go there when we first moved to Nairobi and have nothing but good memories. Comfortable seating, good service-a very loungy place where you could while away some time. The food was not great but not bad either.

I have eaten in here a few times and I have to say the food isn't to bad at all. Depending on the weather, you can either eat inside or on there balcony. Located on Rhapta Road in westlands, it certainly is a little hidden treat. The service is good, and I haven't had any issues in there with time... More

Nice and small cosy bistrot. The food is good and service adequate. However, watch your credit card: they will insist of taking it, and after 5 minutes ask you to come enter the PIN. This is a big no-no as they have the same portable terminal as everywhere else.
