Nice

It's a bar... Good place for meeting friends and away from the usual circuit of bars in the area. Good bitings and a relaxed and friendly atmosphere blend to create a seven place for an afternoon rest after shopping or an evenings entertainment. Don't overlook it, there is a hidden gem here.

Nice bar in a good location in Lavington Shopping Ctr. Went in for a slow beer and a chillax and ended up meeting more friends and staying for a lot longer with a bite to eat. Friendly staff, good selection of drinks, fair prices. It's a sports bar so screen entertainment on most walls gives something to watch during relaxed... More

Kengeles restaurant does decent food and fills up with a varied expat crowd on weekend nights. There is a pleasantly busy atmosphere, often live music, till late

Went for lunch with a friend of mine. The place looks like it could do with some tlc. My salad was fine but my friend had chicken which was inedible. The waitress was gracious enough not to charge for the chicken. Kengeles used to be such an institution in Nairobi it is sad to see it start to run down.... More

The food was average. Dont expect much and you will be satisfied throw back a beer and its fine. I wouldn't, come here just for food again. But if I was watching rugby I would eat and enjoy.. Some interesting items on the menu that sounded exciting with exotic flavours. But just turned out to be average. This place does... More

Hi Meg. thank you for your comments. If possible do you have the name of the staff member? We will make a concerted effort to keep the place tidier, it is unfortunate that the new smoking laws do not allow us to encourage smoking, hence no ash trays. Our bands commence this Thursday, a different one every Thursday, please come... More
