“Delicios reasonably priced food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2011

Nairobi can be a pricy city, but Kahawa turned out to be a good restaurant with reasonably priced tasty dishes. The staff were friendly and the service was great

“One of the few really nice and relaxing quality diners in downtown Nairobi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2010

Kahawa is one of the very few reasonably priced AND delicious diners in downtown Nairobi. While the coffee remains disappointing, albeit less disappointing than in the city's most other coffee houses (as everywhere in Nairobi/East Africa, only U.S. Americans might find some taste in the very weak and stale local brewing style), the food is a real treat, simple stews and curries with a strongly Indian touch. The setting of the restaurant didnt change much since the 1960s and sitting on the shadowy outside terrace is wonderful. What a pity that the outside smoking days are over...
