Good Food, Great Ambience

Slims was a pleasant discovery. I went in a group of seven to bid farewell to a colleague. The ambience was wonderful, with soft music playing in the background in the early evening and increasing in tempo as the night grows older. The staff were very helpful. They have a reasonable... read more

I hosted a birthday party for my sister at Slims in March. They gave us a private section near the wine cellar and everyone enjoyed themselves. In April again, my friends hosted a birthday party for me at the same spot. They handle large groups well. There were two waiters at our beck and call going back and forth filling... More

I totally loved my experience in this restaurant. Been a while since I walked into a restaurant playing live Jazz with great food. I had the Slims burger and it was lovely. The bar is also good. I will surely go back there.

The outside is nothing, no view, no outdoors sitting, the inside is pleasant enough, with bar taking the central space, though it can be windy with all the open windows. The location is not the happiest either, you will most likely not pass it on your walk or daily errands, so you need to aim to go there. There is... More

Had a soup and cocktail the first time. the mushroom soup was not very nice, lumpy with what seemed to have been an after thought of chunks of poorly prepared mushrooms thrown into... More

The Chicken breast is exquisitely done, appealing to the eye as it is served, and delicious to a fault. Fantastic staff...you will think they are trained to serve you only..Jeremiah, Sheila, Margaret..then the music and ambience. Slims it is!

We have been in the look out for just good food in Nairobi, especially in the middle priced range. Finally after getting to know Slims we know we have found the place. Burgers are really good and the buffalo wings are the real deal not the fakes served in many places. Staff is helpful and kind. Please give this place... More
