Go for your shopping at west gate, start with a snack or branch at artcaffe and this will kick start your shopping spree here. I love this place.

“Couldn't get worse if they tried.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

You couldn't get worse service in Nairobi if you tried. Uninspired cuisine delivered by the ever sneering waitstaff. Confusingly, their Junction mall branch is the polar opposite. Save your money. Go elsewhere.

“A Racist Establishment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Art Caffe is a racist establishment. Black people are treated differently and they are lucky if they even get service. White people are shown to a table as soon as they arrive while black people are left to "fend for themselves." Boycott Art Caffe. Racism has no place in the 21st century.

“Every single one of them is excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

You can't go wrong going to any of their restaurants for lunch, dinner, just a drink or desert with friends or a date. Was at Westgate mall for dinner with 3 friends and at the Garden Mall on a late afternoon. I love the atmosphere. If I get back to Nairobi. That's the place to go back to.

“Racist maître d’hôtel at Westgate branch”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

The non-African maitre d seemed more interested in flirting with isolated female patrons of the cafe, rather than working along his job description. I sat there with intention to do my work, and could hear him blatantly voicing his dislike of my kind of folk there (I’m a bearded Sikh). I immediately packed up and left, on the way out I told one of the friendly waiters that I could hear everything he said.

But the waiters and waitresses of African descent are awesome as all Kenyans can be; the giant of a doorman has a beautiful smile!
