Cedars is a great restaurant, very well placed, very atmospheric, great food, great ambience, good shisha and a great place to take your kids. The food is very tasty, particularly the mezze selection. The only problem with the place (apart from the fact the parking is always completely full up) is the price tag. KES1400 for basically fish and chips,... More

I love the hummus, the warm pita bread, the falafel, and the stuffed spinach pies. I usually get takeout, but the atmosphere is also nice. It's just a bit too expensive compared to other options nearby.

Lovely ambience with great tasting food serving both traditional Lebanese and some continental dishes. Relaxing and fun place for families with little tots as they have a play area with child minders, what piece of mind! Prices are a little on the higher side though but the mezze's are a saving especially for larger groups!

Great Lebanese food, good service though slightly expensive. Do not schedule a date for 24 hours after visiting since the amount of garlic used in one dish are enough to supply the whole of Italy for a day. Otherwise all was great.

I eat this food so often. The falafel sandwich is the best thing in the world and is great for when you are hungover, tired, lazy, annoyed, agitated, anxious and or starving. We usually order the falafel sandwiches with an order of hummus. The hummus comes with some scrumptious goodies such as pickles, radishes (strangely good but change the color... More

Good option for something different, Lebanese food and they also do continental, great steak and one of the few places you can always find a variety of fresh fruit juices.

Famous Kenyans frequent this restaurant and you will always see Mercedes, Range Rovers and other high-end cars parked inside where there is not enough parking for all the patrons visiting this busy establishment. The management has arranged curbside parking outside the premises which is safe and always guarded. My family have been coming here for over 10 years as the... More

The food is good, the mezze really delicious, the garden setting great...and the best part for families is the playground for kids! It is fun, and probably the safest one I have seen in Nairobi. On the weekends, they also have a bouncy castle and a child-minder on the play area, so you can relax with good food and the... More

The setting is ok, akthough there are far superior restaurants in the in the area, both in terms of food and decor. The chef's idea of middle-eastern cusine seems to be to just add generous handfuls of garlic to every dish (except for the desserts, one would hope!). Otherwise a very bland dining experience.
