“Good Lebanese Food at a Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

Some of the food is typical Lebanese, while some of it seems not to be so authentic. Nonetheless, the food is tasty, but the prices are steep for portions which should be larger.
Service is above average-waiters still took a while to serve though it wasn’t a busy day.

“Refreshingly simple.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

Went to Cedars on Christmas Day 2013 and was pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent and portions so large we could hardly finish. Decor is very homely. Not pretentious at all. Pricing is fair but for the quality and quantity of food, its well worth it. The one thing that stood out for me was the fact that is is very child friendly. They have a very attentive lady who watched the kids as they played in the back, letting the adults enjoy their meals. All in all, a simple but excellent place to wine and dine.

“Visited again recently & still loved it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

I went to this place with a few office colleagues during our recent business visit to Nairobi. We liked the food so much that we went there thrice in our 3 week visit. The highlight of the menu is the HUMMUS WITH MEAT and the FALAFELs which are served really hot. My colleauges loved both these items and we only had these on our follow-up visits. The service is also nice however the waiters are a little ignorant at times. The price was also reasonable for the quantity of food we had. I loved this place and so did my colleauges

“The best place in Nairobi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

I dream of this place. I dream of the vegetarian mezze (I haven't been able to expand beyond that). The location is hell in traffic (and when is there not traffic???) and the ambience is meh (i.e. not worth it for all that traffic) BUT being the best place in Nairobi, they deliver. Allow a good hour for delivery. Watch out that the mezze are enormous. It is over-priced but with so little competition, it's worth it to suck it up and pay.
