located in Koinange street in town,Kengeles is a nice pub to meet with friends in the evening before you go clubbing.the prices are good and yes the bitings plenty. good customer service too although finding parking nearby is a hurdle!Averagely the standards are good away from the crowded noisy nearby bars.

Service was not good at all. The waiters were all in one corner and it took them hours to get round to us. The food was good though..chicken wings were excellent.Too bad the service couldn't match up.

Albeit dotted with potted plants and imposing counter right at the entrance. this is an okay place compared to the many other cozy options with 50 meter radius. nice place for a hurried drink though.

This chain i hear was among the best in Kenya but i guess the owners have relaxed. Not very good service as i had been told and more so being located near gas stations.

Nothing special about this place. Kind of a cheap watering hole downtown. More like a cheap sport bar. Food not too good. Maybe just for drinks.
