“Casual dining & Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

The food here is very good and the selection is comprehensive. The wait staff were courteous, but a little on the slow / nonchalant side. Two of us shared the vegetarian platter and a side of Shoori and there was not much left when we stopped. Atmosphere was fine for lunch - not sure how it is at night. Very good juices, too. I will return each time I come to Nairobi.

“Exceptional experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

We found this by accident . Great food . Lovely helpful staff . It was an experience to get the mixed meal of seven different dishes all on a huge crepe like pancake . ( dont know the name ) it was enough for two people and only cost 800 shillings . Wine available beers . The potato and carrot dish was superb .

“Excellent Choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

The atmosphere is quaint and relaxing. Authentic. The hospitality is superb. The food is consistently delicious, although the dishes may have a slightly different taste, visit to visit. The food is delivered quickly, as well. I have been there a dozen times in 2013, and have never been disappointed.

Our first time having ethiopian food and what fun! Great spot and enjoyed the food, sharing was fun. Easy to share even with one vegetarian and two non vegetarians. The atmosphere was great and we would recommend as was a great new experience!

“Best Ethiopian food in Kenya”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

The food is fantastic and the prices are reasonable. The atmosphere also nice. If you are okay with spicy food, you will enjoy it.
