“Pretentious at most”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Came for evening drinks..in a nutshell it is quite disappointing how they treat they're regular guests. Sequence of events:

Arrived at 8pm there's no table-had to look for a waiter to help and we were told that we could wait at the 1st, after we suggested perhaps we could get a drink at the bar while we waited he said fine and ran off.

Eventually a table opened up which we had to notice ourselves and show ourselves to.

Then came the hassle of getting a waiters attention. We asked for a shisha and were told none were remaining-it's amazing how this seems to always be the case! We had to ask for the food menu which we did not see until 15mins later when we had to remind another waiter. And yet another 20mins when we had to attract yet another waiters attention to take our order!

It was very frustrating to see that the only table seeming to get any fantastic service was the one with the champagne! How very shallow!

The best bit about this review is that we are writing while being at the premises-and not hiding the fact that we are-and no one seems to have given a care to it!

What fantastic service-not even one smile and apology!

“Place to be seen”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

This is one of Nairobi's new places to be seen. Service can be very hit and miss to non existent at times. Prices for Nairobi are exorbitantly high. The setting is nice.

“great place, great bites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

It's a super nice place to get a bite to eat with friends at any time of the day. The bitings are delicious; we love the shrimp especially!
The drinks are funky, but it's a hit or miss.
They also have shishas.
However, stay away from the burgers! They are absolutely unedible - the meat is more like a paste than anything else!
The staff is very friendly.
If you go at night, bring a sweater, it can get quite chilly up there.
