We been missing home food and started looking for Lebanese food and came across this restaurant and it's amazing .. the food just tasted like homely Lebanon ... the decor and the cedar tree at the entrance brings a smile to all lebaneses away from home. Must try and highly recommended. About the service , It was the fastest in... More

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.

Went there for dinner and had the wings and fried beef. There is not much to say about either of the dishes, it was just food, nothing extraordinary about it. The Restaurant though is well laid out, service was fast, portions were large and the Decor was good.

From stuffed vine leaves, falafel, chicken wings, pitta bread, chick peas, beef strips and on and on and on. Food as far as the eye can wander. Wonderful mains as well... More

The good: The food is delicious. Lip-smackingly good. We enjoyed the chicken wings, falafal, mixed grilled meats. The pita bread starter with sauces and pickled vegetables was amazing. Ambiance is also really nice. You feel like you're dining in someone's home, which makes for a real cozy environment. The bad: The prices are expensive, especially for the quantity of food... More
