“Best Java i have been too!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

The outdoor space is airy, nice lounge area inside, as usual great meals and coffee... Your challenge is this being tucked inside a gas station with minimal area, parking can be a hurdle. Great facility though!!!

“Confounding Java”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

The Nairobi Java house is a restaurant I love to hate but seem to keep finding myself there (it may have a thing to do with the fact that Java houses keep popping up all over the city). The food is okay, nothing to write home about truth be told. The service...the wait-staff does go through the motions of providing good service but I am not convinced. The last time I had lunch there I ordered a minty pineade to go with ice on the side. I had to insist on a take away bag and the ice, when it finally came, (ten minutes later and after asking twice) was not packed for taking-away...Grrr! Ruined the whole experience for me.

“Java House in Kenyatta Airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

I had a long wait at the airport and the highlight was the meal at Java House: refried beans, absolutely delicious. Slightly confusing queuing system, but helpful staff and the prices are a pleasant surprise compared with UK airport prices.

“Fruit Salad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Whenever you want a delicious fruit salad, Java is has the answer. I have tried doing it a home but it doesn't taste as good as Java's.
