I travel to Nairobi on Business often. I stay in the Crowne Plaza in Upper Hill. Ask yourself is 450 shillings a good price for beer in the hotel or should you go to an authentic Kenyan bar and get one for 170? The food varies from 450 shillings to 1200. Yes they don't always have the whole menu available... More

The restaurant has a very nice garden, the atmosphere is relaxed and soothing, there is a small fountain as well. We went for lunch, had buffet, it was not splendid or too diverse, but it had the soup, the salad, the starch (roasted potatoes were excellent), vegetables, beef stew and chicken. Deserts they do not have, but will serve a... More

For whatever it is worth I would like to provide you with feedback in relation to our wedding after-party on 21 December 2013 - hopefully this will ensure that you provide better service to your other guests/customers. Kudos to the kitchen team, they did a fab job in ensuring that our guests were well fed despite the numbers almost being... More

I booked for a luncheon and the staff acted "suprised" when I arrived there with my guests. The place reserved for my guests had other patrons, the tables were dirty and sorrounded by flies! The service was terrible and whereas I had indicated that I shall be there by 3pm, the food was served at 4! therefore we waited for... More

We went to Bonds for dinner and drinks. I was not that hungry and when the food came I was sure I'd eat only half of it, but I actually ate every morsel. The pork chops were quite good. The service is quite wanting though, we had to keep waiting for a waiter to walk into the room. It was... More

This place has the potential to be a nice restaurant, and would probably be OK if a small number of people want to eat there. they can't cope with a large group, and the service in general was terrible. The knives and forks were put on a plate in the middle of the table for everyone to find what they... More

Despite giving 5 days notice before taking a party of 15 to Bonds they were not ready for us. They hurriedly put tables together for us when we arrived. 90 minutes after ordering our meals no food had arrived, so I went to ask about it. When food did start to arrive they stacked it on a nearby table to... More

Horrible is an understatement. We ordered and waited for 2 hours, and what came was different from what we ordered. The waiter was rude and took forever to come. the waiters were too busy for us, and rarely passed by our table. Will never go back here.
