“Good place with good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Was at the Zen garden in a recent visit to Nairobi.The place is large with nice Japanese gardens. We sat down outdoors enjoying the great Nairobi climate and the gardens. The food was good and presented well. The service was also not bad.

“Sunday is for children”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

We found the place teeming with small children and it was decidedly noisy. The Sunday menu is rather limited and geared to children, but there was still a choice of foods. The meat was all right, but here in the UK we prefer it to be more tended than the Africans - perhaps we're spoilt!? The garden is very simple, not at all Japanese, although it sounds as though it should be. I believe that a better time to go is during the week.

“Great atmosphere and good for kids.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Good food and great atmosphere. Big yard for kids to run around. Like most places in Kenya service is just OK.
