This restaurant was supposed to be highly rated with good food. we found the food to be ok but basically fried with chips and such like. Perfectly alright but nothing to write home about.

I ordered the buffalo wings (their specialty according to their menu) and WOW, these things were very tasty. The best I've had in a while (and I love buffalo wings). Dipping them in the blue cheese dip was like the icing on the cake. Ambiance is very upscale and the prices reflect that. These are prices that I would pay... More

The staff was attentive, so that's good. I ordered a cocktail, which seemed watered down- that was not so good. They used to mix them really well, but something has definitely changed.

we used to go here every Tuesday night for the wings and jazz we were a little dissapointed this time as it was almost empty shame as it used to a great meeting place for the yuppie of Nairobi and the Jazz was great shame what happened

What usually brings me to Slims is my craving for their delicious chicken wings! They are exceptionally tasty and the dip that accompanies the meal makes it even yummier! Their pork spare ribs are also quite tasty. Every Tuesday evening they have a live Jazz band that attracts large numbers of the nairobi locals. Getting a seat is tricky if... More

This is one of my favorite spots in Nairobi, simply because it never disappoints. Its not a huge restaurant but hugely popular. I would say the setting is a mix between fine dining and an upmarket lounge. Whether you are having their famous bitings such as chicken wings, fish fingers, pork ribs or if you want a huge slims burger... More

Slims was a pleasant discovery. I went in a group of seven to bid farewell to a colleague. The ambience was wonderful, with soft music playing in the background in the early evening and increasing in tempo as the night grows older. The staff were very helpful. They have a reasonable selection of food and drinks on the menu which... More

I hosted a birthday party for my sister at Slims in March. They gave us a private section near the wine cellar and everyone enjoyed themselves. In April again, my friends hosted a birthday party for me at the same spot. They handle large groups well. There were two waiters at our beck and call going back and forth filling... More
