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 and dinner.

Writing this while at Slims. We got here very early (6pm) on a Tuesday oblivious of the popular jazz. But the first thing that hit us at the entrance is the stench of cigarette smoke, we had agreed not to spend more than 2 hours, then now we have seen the jazz being set up and opted to stay longer...

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

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
