“Nice but can be better!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

I especially love the food they serve in both quantity and quality...though disturblingly are the flies that come to disturb your delicious meal and the waiters who are too busy you have to struggle to get their attention especially at the Javas at city oil Bombo road.

“Consistent and comfortable.”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Food is consistently good, service is quick. Icecream choices could be expanded, but the servings are very generous! Love the coffee and the airconditioning too.

“Perfect value for money is this big chain restaurant”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Javas is great if you need nice meal with friends. It's also great if you just want some nice coffee with some delicious pie. And then it's also good if you need some decent wi-fi to upload pictures or do work-related things while drinking a nice fruit-smoothie. The menu is incredibly extensive with Indian, Mexican, American and Italian food al against reasonable pricings. The service is fast and well organised. If you want an intimate night out, do not go to Javas. If you need a good quick bite, definetely go to Javas!

“Standard western-style cafe”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Good for hanging out alone to have a quick bite and get some work done. Not a place for a special occasion.
