One successful Food Chain

Java houses everywhere in Nairobi is the place I hang out most during my visit there, as it offered very fast free wife and good food and drinks, thus normally located at big shopping malls

I had a great coffee experience and a very nice breakfast. The service was great, not overpriced and free wi-fi was given. The place was clean and compatible.

The food is great. You must try out the lemon and ginger drink, carrot cake, and pork chops. Sumptuous. Compliments to the Chef. The staff are attentive and courteous. Keep it up JAVA KMA Branch. My favourite branch

The Java coffee houses are the most convenient places to have good coffee and meet up with friends. They are clean and you can bet on great Kenyan coffee and sometimes decent food. But that's where it stops. The menu, you get in no time. Then comes the long wait for the order to be taken. Then another wait. This... More

I generally like Java restaurants for their great ambience. Thing is,service varies depending on which branch one visits. Some have very bad service while others outdo themselves. Great for a coffee date. With coffee houses coming up everyday in the city,people are spoilt for choice...they need to maintain standards..
