“Best ice tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

Very good food..American type food. Cold ice tea is not common in Kenya, but Java House had excellent ice tea. Also prices were very reasonable for Nairobi.

“the long slow decline continues”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

took my first breakfast at Java the first week they opened in '96 in Adams arcade and continued as a fan for many years... but my how the corporate culture of Java has changed... in those Adam's days, the manager, Ben, would do everything from sweep to wipe off tables to help waiters carry the load during peak times... this Texan knew Java was in trouble the first time I got a burrito with something labeled "ranchero" sauce that was nothing of the sort... haven't been a Java customer for many years, but decided to try the place in Westgate since I frequent that mall now... Admitedly, we were there opening week, but it was chaos... no one seemed to knwo what they were doing... and in a total corporate shift, we asked an assistant manager for another bottle of water and she said, "I'll get your waiter." In the old days, the managers would have done anything... we've tried coffee or breakfast at the cavernously empty Gigiri branch a few times, but the service is so damn slow, even for just a coffee, that i walked in and found my waitress actually leaning on the bar... thankful that a few new places in nairobi have much better food... and better service...

“Good Burger...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

I had a veggie burger with french fries (chips, as they call it) along with a pineapple juice... it was definitely tasty... I am sure there are many other non veg stuff as well.

“Best Java i have been too!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

The outdoor space is airy, nice lounge area inside, as usual great meals and coffee... Your challenge is this being tucked inside a gas station with minimal area, parking can be a hurdle. Great facility though!!!
