Service is Ok, Food is OK, but in terms of Lebanese food which is one of my favourites its a poor cousin, their tabouleh and some of the meat dishes really need some more punch

The food was really good and the chicken wings is a must for anyone going here! I was here with my wife, sister-in-law, teenage cousin and three very active kids below 5 years and they really enjoyed the garden and its palyground that includes slides. We were able to eat while we kept watch.

I was torn between a 3 or 4 star rating for this restaurant. Let me start with the positives: - The best area for kids under 10 to play in Nairobi (trust me, I've looked). Fantastic permanent jungle gym on rubberized tiles, so even after rain, no muddy feet. On weekends they have a jumping castle as well. - Menu... More

I have been going here over a number of years. My last two visits have made me think again. Food seemed less than fresh (meza for two) and as others have said the heated bread really lets the place town. They also only had one flavour of shisha on this occassion. The service is never great and the waiters dont... More

Over the years, we have eaten at the Cedars many times. The food is always so fresh, packed full of flavour, and served with flourish & grace. Very spicy, but not necessarily very hot. We love it. A big issue is parking. The parking area is just too small. On street parking is on a very busy road -- makes... More
