This place sells brilliant coffee & even better burritos. I would go out of my way to get coffee from any Java House in Kenya - they are brilliant. Thanks America!

So i had to write this today after my second visit months apart. on the previous visit, a group of friends decided to have lunch at Java Gigiri. Being one of the most famous names of restaurants in Nairobi, we expected nothing less of an uneventful lunch where we could catch up on recent events. however our conversations were cut... More

Did lunch at Java Yaya Centre and had a very mixed experience. While the meal I had was reasonable, the service was horrible. The meal took long to come, the orders were mixed and the waiter did not seem too concerned about it. All in all, kudos to the supervisor who stepped in after we complained. Java is usually a...

Great place to catch coffee and meet up with friends for a quick lunch. Food options are limited . Coffee is great though. Overall? Average.

One of those few place that come to my mind when I want to have descent meetings on weekday evenings while washing down the ideas with rounds of hot coffee! The location, setting and service is on point.

My sister said it was the only decent coffee she had when she was in Kenya. We ended up eating there a lot for lunch on her coffee runs. The tomato soup was fantastic. We usually ended up having a salad as it was one of the safe places to have vegetables. It was quite refreshing. Service was good. It's... More

There's a wonderful waitress whose service has been excellent both times we have been.You need to do something about the flies indoors that congregate near the window.Food is okay and it is a nice hang out.

I had heard about the place from a friend and was eager to try it. Apart from good location, prompt service, the food s amazingly yummy. Whatever you order, you end up loving it. Highly recommended.
