More 'club' than restaurant

I made the mistake of visiting on a Tuesday evening. It was very quiet, just a few business guys enjoying after-work drinks and avoiding the Nairobi rush-hour-traffic-nightmare. I am told they have two DJ's on Friday and Saturday nights and I can imaging it could get quiet lively. Nice looking pool... read more

I was here for dinner and the menu seems to have changed a lot since the last time I visited the place a couple of months ago. The service is good and the Manager made sure everyone is attended to. The chicken was a bit too oily but ok. If you want a quite place, even for groups, then try... More

Needed a quick lunch nearby (Nairobi traffic is terrible). This is a popular place and several groups were already there but they found space for our group. Good Kenya food, nice ambience and buffet lunch so service worked well. Friendly staff.

Spent the Sunday afternoon 8/03/2015, two adults and two children. the children enjoyed themselves to a small but nice size swimming pool with a minimal affordable charge. We opted to have our late lunch and the food menu was much better priced than most Nairobi restaurants. The menu included a mixed platter meal but was not available and whole sized... More

Well, look no further. As a group of friends, we tasked two of us to reserve the venue and to get a good price for a Saturday evening dinner. Emails flew around and a reservation made. Or so we thought. because when we arrived there, the manager said they didn't have any such reservation. On further inquiry based on the... More

Lovely garden in the new financial district. An oasis in the the concrete jungle. Creative drinks and fresh juices. Food fairly indifferent and service slow.

We went to Bonds for dinner but had a hard time figuring out exactly where to sit. Seemed like it could be a nice place. My wife and I got different menus, she was guided toward Chinese for what reason we are not sure. Dinner was good, good value as well.

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
