I go here often with my family (with little kids) since it has a playground, and much more on the weekends (bouncy castle, trampolines, etc). However, their is a car wash right next to the playground and the pump for the water is noisy! So, if you sit near the playground for the kids, it can be a bit annoying.... More

If your thinking of having spare ribs ,this is the place . The all you can it is a tasty treat . The ribs are to die for. The burgers are also a treat. Just needs a wider and cheaper selection of wines.

This is a very famous and frequently visited place in Nairobi. The weekends are really good. The food is extremely average but there are a lot of options for drinks. A little expensive as well.

Along Argwings Kodhek, it's a nice off the road drop in point mainly outdoor, great for groups/families and get togethers. Nice friendly staff and food too.

It has taken me time to write this review due to the heavy disappointment experienced here. Had heard great things about this place. So was here for my mom's 59th birthday. From the word go, nothing went right. We booked a table of 14 in advance and they squeezed us in a small banda, which had absolutely no maneuverability or... More

Heard this was a nice place, but nothing seemed right. The service was terrible, food late with wrong items that took forever to replace and mediocre taste. What we wanted was not available. Things got so bad my friend went to complain to the manager who instead of trying to address the issues yelled at the waiter. Never going back.

I liked the setting, but food was not the best. I was there with two friends and all of us had an issue with our individual orders. To be honest, the food was bland.

This is a place I will never get tired of. The garden setting is amazing for a sunny afternoon or even a nice evening out as the amazing lighting of the place at night is usually exquisite. It is located on my way home and most of the times I usually find myself passing there even if its just for... More

We went there with my Wife and daughter and we all loved it. Even respectable members of our Parliament were there. There is enough fun for the young ones, you don't have to worry where they are since security is very goood. The food is nice although a bit pricy but quality is excellent.

Tried this place on a Sunday afternoon. Certainly tucked away next to a security company and have driven past a number of times without noticing it. The outside tables were monopolized by families illustrating its child friendly environment, with a supervised playground nearby. We sat near the bar area away from the mid day sun. Both of us had grilled... More
