Java Houses have great ambience and historically used to have good quality food, however, over the last few years as they have aggressively expanded, their quality of food has deteriorated as fast as they have expanded. Sadly, they are charging a premium (relative to other restaurants in Nairobi) for this poor quality of food!

I remember being at the first JAVA at Adams Arcade, and just last week i was at their new joint at Prestige Plaza. Consistent over the years, which is why i keep going back. Love the cafe latte.. love the black forest ( and the MASSIVE samosas ). Nonetheless, excellent food, drinks and attentive management.

This is where I'd take friends for a nice brunch. I have a weakness for their fish and chips with a nice mocha. My favourite Java is at ABC Place Westlands cos it has a nice outdoor sitting where you can feel the energy of other diners, observe the buzz of shoppers and visitors and get a lot of errands...

Very nice staff. Great food but also a great place to grab a great coffee and relax. Try the lemon ginger tea if you like strong ginger. The fajitas are great too

You cannot go wrong at a Java. They have a simple menu that consistently knocks out quality at a very affordable price. The staff are young and friendly and they know how to please. Brilliant.

The service was slow, enjoyed the food and the atmosphere was great and do recommend it, parking was a bit frustrating but I am from RSA so not used to it :) Will be visiting every time I am in Nairobi.

Java Gigiri is great. We were served by Winnie who was polite and very welcoming. She was patient with us and gave great guidance in choosing our meals from the menu. A patient and available staff. We were assisted and served with a smile. The food was tantalising. we sampled different coffee options and each turned out to be great.... More
