Nice food and they do a great Ton Collins gin. Really relaxed atmosphere and enjoyed watching the monkeys frolicking around in the garden trees.

The food seems to be on a slide. The service is still good and so is the ambience. Have stopped going there. But was quite crowded the last time we were there would recommend a reservation on a weekend.

A sweet and cosy place. A very nice ambience however the food was lacking. Don't remember exactly what we ate but weren't too impressed. I guess that's why we haven't been back.

I have been to this restaurant countless of times and the food used to be delicious. Over the years the standard of the food has dropped - I'm not too sure why. The ambiance however is wonderful, and perfect for a private romantic dinner or a quiet meeting with friends. My all time favorite meal here used to be the... More

We had a wonderful time kicking off Nairobi Restaurant Week. The menu was set with a few choices. I ordered the sweet potato samosas and my friend had the beet root soup. Both were very good. I loved the soup and wished I had one all to myself. For our main course I had the black pepper steak with rosemary... More

LOVE this place. Great ambiance and a nice range of food, veg and non-veg alike. Chef will generally send some complimentary small bite but their appetizers are well worth sampling. Favorites are: ribs, pumpkin amareto tortelloni, sweet corn fritters, fried camembert, chicken pot pie....... oh the list goes on! A great place for a romantic meal, a small group of... More

About thyme offers tasty food with the option to sit out on the terrace. Mains are reasonably priced and the free bitings are a nice touch. I have tended to find the starters a tad disappointing, especially in relation to their desserts, which are particularly good. Nice place for a quiet dinner, and definitely worth a try!

Tucked in a little corner in Westlands, Nairobi, About Thyme is a wonderful place for an intimate meal, especially dinner. I found the restaurant decorated with some fairy lights that gave the place the place a great romantic ambiance. The service was average for dinner with a little bit of a wait for the appetizer. It was also mojito night... More
