“Home brewed Beer and Fine Dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

The 6 types of beer brewed on the premises are very different so a beer drinker can surely find one type that suits his/her taste.
The fine dining restaurant at the back is really a fine dining experience.

“From bad to worse”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

The service is soooo bad at this place. We had to hail for a waiter and when he finally brought our order it was wrong. Telling him had him walking away while I was mid sentence. And I he pawned us off to some other waiters.
What always brought me back to this place is the tricolad cake but it gets smaller and less creamy every time. Not going back any time soon.

“Slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

One of the most infuriating slow restaurants I've been in. There must be 50 staff "working". None with any urgency or coordination. The food itself is very good as is the atmosphere.

“The Go-To Lunch Spot in Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Although a bit pricey -- lunch for 2 is easily $35 -- the quality of the food, of the staff, and the atmosphere can't be beat. I'm a particular fan of their perfectly prepared ground lamb kebabs with tabouleh; it's perfection as are their iced lattes made with Dormans coffee. They do get busy though and inside at Westgate, the noise levels may discourage those looking for quiet.
