“Our favourite haunt.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

We're always heading to the Corner Affair for it's tasty, cheap food. There's a good vegetarian as well as meat selection to cater for everyone's tastes and the portion sizes are always very generous.

There's also a bakery on site which has now become a regular stop if we're in need of some pudding.

A perfect place to sit and enjoy an evening - especially if you sit looking onto the courtyard (takeaway is also available).

“wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Been to this place a few times now.. and everytime i go..i have tried something new off the menu and i have NEVER NEVER been Dissapointed. Serving sizes are big.. food quality is amazing. Its like having a chef cook for you at home! presentation of food.. atmostphere of the place.. friendly staff.. everything about this place is amazing!! I have been to many places in nairobi for a meal and i strongly strongly recommend Corner. They also have the most amazing Apple pie (baked in their bakery section)and really really good Coffee!! STRONGLY RECOMMEND IT!
Hats off to the chef! and to the owner for maintaining such excellent standards in a city like Nairobi!

“Just lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Quiet little place, make their own pizzas and deserts, all food cooked fresh and tastes good, . I've eaten there 4 Times. We go every Friday for fish and chips, either in batter or baked. Coffee fantastic. Sit in or out. You can also buy bread and dessert to take away. Staff are great. A mix of ex pat and holiday makers. I love this place...cool
