I was genuinely surprised by this establishment the first time I went there. I had been looking for an alternate Ethiopian restaurant apart from the usual Asmara and Habesha then stumbled upon this place. The first positive is the location, a few minutes from Yaya Center but on a very quiet road. There is ample parking and the place is... More

Yejoka is a new Ethiopian restaurant in Nairobi located in a quiet spot not too far from Yaya Centre. Besides the tasty food is the well kept garden that makes the outdoor sitting area really awesome. For a travel blogger like me, the wifi was a bit dissapointing as i would have wished to share my experience much earlier.while there.... More

I wanted to celebrate a birthday with a long time friend and a colleague suggested Yejoka for its highly rated Injera. I have never had such kind of dish before so i was really eagered as a first timer. All in all the place was excellent, service was fantastic plus we finished off the dinner with strawberry-mint shisha.

@Wambui G - I was shocked to read the unfair review of my favorite restaurant in Nairobi. I'm not sure about the "horrible service" though you might have faced issues around service. Else am dead sure on the extraordinary food there contrary to the what you mention. I hope this is our beauty as an African having so much taste... More

excellent place ..must try at least once in tour lifetime...really shocked that someone has posted complaining about the food...perhaps they are not aware that Eritrean food is slightly different from Ethiopian. Eritrea cusine tends to have some tomato...I guess it's the Italian influence. .excellent. .keep it up..

While the ambience was OK, the service was horrible! The waitress got the order wrong and took too long to deliver requests. The food was ordinary, nothing to write home about. Overall, the experience was not good at all. Service should be improved.

We went when it was pouring rain in May so that diminishes a garden experience a bit. We were in a dry area along with the mosquitoes, We have frequented Habesha and thought we would try Yejoka because it was a bit closer and had nice reviews. We found the servers advice and guidance more helpful at Habesha and the... More
