Great place for kids on a sunday

Nice food, nice ambiance, lovely outdoor eating areas- and the best thing about it: a great playground at the back where kids 2 years and older can play.

This is my favourite restaurant as it is close to my cousin's house. We started going to it years ago when there were only a few tables in the garden. I love this type of food and have always found it to be excellent here. We generally go for lunch. I love the kibbeh, kebabs, various dips and salads. There... More

The everyday place, yup this is the closest restaurant to the office. So we almost end up going there every other day. They have the best Cappuccino i have had in Nairobi so far. The food is excellent. Love the service

We spent a Sunday afternoon there with friends. The playground is very nice and the lady taking care of the kids does a great job. The garden is nice, though no view and it can get quite packed.

After the "Carnivore experience" we wanted to go low key, with more vegetables and less theatre, so we chose this restaurant. We were a group of 5, ordered the half mezzee (for 4) and could have filled one more person at least. I can't say the food is special but some of the mezzees were really tasty and the others...
