“The Food has Improved”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

I must say that I recently went to Java House and found that the food had improved. I had a Thai Salad as well as a delicious vegetable wrap. The staff is very friendly and polite. They aren't to blame for the rather slow service. Java House in most of their locations is simply understaffed. Their coffee is superb and yes they do offer free Wi-Fi service. It's a great place for young children as they're offered coloring books and crayons.

“Nice food, indeed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Try the pepper steak! Yummy! And all the milkshakes, and the carrot cake... ahhhh, so delicious, and the apple pie... ahhhhh... they have a kids menu and whenever children arrive they give them couloured pencils and some drawings to colour as well as some other entertainments. It's nice of them. Don't miss it. Remember: JAVA

“Great Coffee, Food, and Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Tasty, hearty menu options, great coffee, brightly-lit, modern restaurant. The staff is friendly and helpful when asked questions about the menu. Happy to feed us, although we came nearly at closing time. Ample parking. Enough menu choices to satisfy picky children.

“Ce'beautifull”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

I have had the pleasure sampling almost all the java's in Nairobi.I always enjoy my meal and the service is great.I like the consistency, you go to any of their many outlets and it's the same, good food, nice service, nice ambiance, the prices are fair. It is total value for your money. I would recommend it any day.
