Ok place for a bite before flying

The coffee and hot chocolate we had were rather insipid when we visited, but this outlet is one the more pleasant places to sit down and grab a bite before flying. A note of caution though - there are cumbersome security checks to exit the area if your gate is not on the same side of the departure... read more

Whoever came up with the idea of separating the sitting area and take away had a good strategy to speed up service,however it's made the team on the take away section lazy...I sat for 1hour and observed how tables were dirty and not cleared...interesting enough the service lady seemed bored at the counter as passengers walked in and struggled to...

if you are the kind of person who avoids eating on a plane and would like to get a decent bite before you board the plane at nairobi airport then this is the place to eat at. we ordered a burger and a mexican grilled dish. the stuff was simply yum! its a bit expensive but worth every shilling!

This international airport is really missing a trick. There are no executive lounges - the one that exists is certainly not an executive lounge and is vastly over priced. So the Java House is the only option for this busy airport. I had a steak and fries and it was very good, cooked well and presented cleanly, the staff were... More

Java House inside the international departures at JKIA is a super place for a meal - there is often a queue in the evenings, which tends to move fast. Service is good and the menu has a wide range of contemporary foods, some great healthy options and a large range of drinks. It is unfussy, tasty, reasonably priced and good... More

Don't miss that there are 2 Nairobi Java Houses at JKIA - one outside and one inside the international terminal. Both are virtually identical, however. They serve up American-style food, good coffee, and a good location to spend some time at the airport. MAJOR downside, though - they no longer offer free wi-fi. This was always the great bonus of...

Because we missed our connecting flight we had breakfast and dinner here. The staff was great to us. Warm and friendly. On our way back again we stopped. Very friendly.

Easily accessible from both terminal sales, between gates 14 and 15. Beer, wine, soft drinks,sandwiches, Saldana etc on the menu. I had a thai beef salad which whilst far from authentic was fresh and tasty. The ice cream was good. It was busy even at 11pm. Expect to have to share your table if you are a solo diner.

I visited this establishment, while waiting for flight from JKI airport. The service was very good - and the menu was typical coffee shop fare. I ordered a roasted turkey and cheese sandwich. The sandwich was good - a very large portion, but was not memorable! A colleague of mine ordered the beef and mango wrap 0 which was surprisingly... More
