We had the mezze for 2 people which was varied and well-priced but ultimately far too much for us. No matter, it tasted good and was definitely Lebanese, without too much garlic. Would go again.

I went to Cedars two nights ago. The place is popular....i was out for dinner. Service is good...ambience ok...well we sat outside so i can't tell much about the inside. I enjoyed the meal there. They serve you pickled veggies as you wait for your meal. I recommend their salmon and you must try their Lebanese desserts.

The ambiance is good. Food has been reported by some friends to have caused indigestion. We did not have such an experience. Decently priced.

Lebanon in Nairobi - what more could you want. Great options - including vine leaves! - for both lunch and dinner. Great choice!

Cedars is not only in a great location but it has great food and service. I have been going there for more than 5 years and they are the most consistent restaurant and their food is as great today as it was back then. There are also various parts of the restaurant with different set ups and a fireplace on... More

Pretty disappointing. Love Lebanese food and from reviews I was expecting good things. Truth is it was very mediocre. Good mezze like tapas are reliant on top quality ingredients well prepared. What we got here were quite a lot of fairly stodgy pastry filled with small enough portions of cheese meat and spinach,taboulleh so drenched in lemon juice it was... More

It drops a notch just because the bill is kind of hefty, but you will eat beautifully. Try the mezze, make sure you don't order too much because the portions are huge, we were so stuffed at the end of the meal.

3 times I have used Cedars catering service for large groups - up to 30 pax. They have always been on time with setting up tents and tables, as well as delivering the food. Good quality on the food and lots of it. I have been happy and so has my guests been.

Thank Hans L
