“Que Pasa.. Late Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

We went there for late lunch on a Lazy sunday afternoon; here is the rating

Ambiance- great. not too many people... well lit and nice to spend an afternoon. they were playing some nice Sauti Sol and that was a plus

Food- Was excellent. Must say we woke up on the glutton side. We ate some spicy wings which were awesome. Followed it with some steak and fries of which the stake was very nice and finally some Pizza. The pizza was great

Price- Depends but personally i think it was fair and good value for money

Service- The waitress was very good. i wish i could remember her name. I may have been lucky but she was helpful.

I would most likely go back again.

“Hit and Miss”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

This place ranges from excellent to disappointing. There is no doubt that QP has the best Pizzas around and on occasion play great live music by the likes of Nairobi's own MOJO. It has however been known to be a place to watch your change and be inhumanly patient to wait for service. The location is another negative as it is situated right on the edge of Karen Dukkas by the petrol station and harassment is not unheard of - the security do a good job of preventing this.

“A minus”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Que Pasa proved to be a lovely brunch place and conveniently located on the way to Nairobi's weekend attractions. The interiors are tasteful, the food was delicious. The bar, in the front section of the restaurant looks impressive. We only found ourselves waiting for long too long for the meal and our beverages. The long waiting time is the "minus" in the overall splendid experience.

If one can suggest to the managers: think of adding mimosas and other brunch drinks to the menu, it will attract and accommodate additional set of weekend guests.

“I'm Here for the Pizza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

OK so living round the corner helps so for me this is a great location, it can feel a bit dark and dinjy in there, but I generally go in at lunch time when it's a bit brighter.
The service can be terrible, really guys you have got a front of house staff problem.We always wait an inordinate amount of time for just about anything, menus, drinks, food, table checks and trying to attract attention sometimes needs the equivalent of a Mexican Wave.
So having said that, why do we go back, simply because it's the best Pizza this side of Milan, great thin crispy bases, lots of choices and you can add anything they have in the kitchen, if the wait staff remember. So whilst you sit and watch the pizza maker prepare your meal just keep an eye on whats being put on if you are at the right table to do so, then you can always but in like I have been known to do.

In Summary, good food, great pizza, great bar, PLEASE just get the service better!
