“good but beware”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

This place has a nice setting, the food is really good and in general the staff are very nice. I just cannot give 4 or 5 stars because I was very disappointed last time I was there. We had booked for 15 people and ordered coffee at the end. the coffee ceremony is quite a thing in Ethiopia and they brought us instant coffee in a nice pot!! I guessed they hoped we would not think it's instant because of the fancy packaging. I was very disappointed.

“Great spot for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

The best thing about this place is the ambience - the restaurant is in an old bungalow and their outdoor seating is in the shade of the trees. Nice break from the pollution and traffic in Nairobi.

You can hang out as long as you'd like and have a great lunch - the food is good too!
