“Good food, coffee and service”
Reviewed August 30, 2011

The first time was good, but then was much better. The dishes are fine, the coffee and tea is well served, the ambience is local... so, is a great value.

“Fair, average quality”
Reviewed July 7, 2011

Has quite a nice ambiance. The food is generally of reasonable quality and is relatively inexpensive, but there is not a great deal of variety. The fruit juices are quite nice, but if you are looking for wine with your meal, try somewhere else. The service is quite efficient but a bit on the slow side. It is supposed to have a good reputation for coffee but I have never tried it.

“A positive vote for these guys”
Reviewed June 19, 2011

Java was a good option for a quick snack or a proper meal. Their coffee was great and they offered a good range of food, both from a display fridge and on a menu. Value for money was good too. The store was comfortable and well arranged. Staff were decent and attentive. Upstairs was pretty cramped, but they have a nice basement section with good seating to stretch out and relax.
So a thumbs up for this company – I went to two different stores in Central Nairobi and both were excellent. Recommended for a quick coffee or a more standard restaurant-style meal.
