“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

We were on a short trip to Nairobi, and this was my favorite place to eat! I live in Africa, so I wasn't looking for the African style meal. It was great to have some delicious meals with a taste from home!

I would say, however, that if you are American, the pizzas (which were highly praised when I read the reviews before visiting) are not likely what you are used to. They are a very thin crust, with almost no sauce. However, there are so many other great dishes to choose from, I can't complain!

“Arrogant Managers”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

The managers are arrogant and look down upon African customers, so please if you love yourself try other restaurants.... it's not a pleasant experience...

“Great food and a lovely atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

I was just in Nairobi with my family and we had a lovely lunch at this restaurant. As a vegetarian, I had no trouble finding a tasty meal that filled me up! I enjoyed the mushroom penne pasta and the sauces for the garlic bread were great! There was a spicy chili sauce that I highly recommend.

This place was perfect for my big family! Many of them had never been outside of the US so it was nice to go somewhere that allowed them to try something familiar while still pushing them outside of their food comfort zone.

“love the food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

the restaurant has a great ambience. Love the food a lot. Great variety of tasty food such as pizzas, fish and chips, salad, and chicken shnitzel. Would recommend sitting outside, drink beer, and order some amazing food. Only problem is the staff isnt that friendly.
