We visited this place for drinks on a friday night. Although thus was our 3rd or 4th time, we found it a little too quiet. Service is always good and good wine. A good place if one is looking for a quiet evening.

Nice little jazz bar and diner. Prices are on the expensive side (for Nairobi) but decor is very nice and you feel very safe here. The spicy chicken wings were delicious! The space is very comfortable and is a great place for a few drinks...More

Slims is a half-way house between the Nairobi CBD and the Kilimani/Hurlingham neighbourhood. Nice compact place for drinks and informal meet-up, though expensive in comparison to other places in the same range in Nairobi

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.

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...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...More
