The restuarant is well situated and quite busy, but that is no excuse for poor service. Waiters are very quick at bringing you a menu and taking your order and the nightmare starts there! First the food will take for ever and I had to remind a waiter twice regarding my order. When the food came, they had no hand... More

After 4 years away from Nairobi, I felt like I was a stranger in a strange land on coming back. Everything shiny and new and expensive (if you live with some income that is). However, there was always the Java. Like a well worn pair of favorite trousers, it feels comfortable and sensible. Staff is friendly and efficient. Food is... More

Its a nice coffee house. They serve nice coffee and food. During evening time it is more pleasant. The Coffee house of City Centre is more nicer compare to others.

The service we received was excellent (fast ordering, quick arrival of our food, attentive wait-staff). The menu has a nice variety of items. The food we had was well-prepared, very tasty and good-sized portions. All at a great price. I'd go back again anytime!

After our safari, our driver recommended this place for lunch. It was a really good choice. The food selection was a nice variety, combining both eastern and western choices. The vibe was casual and we ate outdoors because the cafe inside the restaurant was tiny. FYI, if you order the lemonade, ask for a side of sugar cane because they... More

Perfect example of a cafe that runs because the options in the city are limited. Average food and slow service most of the time. Coffee is nice (sometimes)

There is one Java House in almost every Mall/Corner of Nairobi. They have Standard Menu across all of their Restaurants. Very Good Coffee and Excellent Food. Good Value for Money. Their Service is excellent.
