“Lively place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

The last time i was here was during the World Cup.I ordered beef samosas since i wasn't that hungry and they were very juicy and tasty.I have also dined here in the evening.Only problem was the music was too loud making conversation hard.If you choose to sit outside make sure to wear warm clothing as it can be quite cold especially during the cold weather.The service is also not tha t bad but at the same time not fast enough.

“Nice bar for a drink and dance on the weekend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

Kengeles restaurant does decent food and fills up with a varied expat crowd on weekend nights. There is a pleasantly busy atmosphere, often live music, till late

“Nice bolthole”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

Nice bolthole and even better coz you get free parking at this location. Lovely ambiance. Why does beer always taste better here on Saturday afternoon?

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Went for lunch with a friend of mine. The place looks like it could do with some tlc. My salad was fine but my friend had chicken which was inedible. The waitress was gracious enough not to charge for the chicken.

Kengeles used to be such an institution in Nairobi it is sad to see it start to run down. The outside was dark and the floor full of cigarettes as it is the smoking area.

A shame as there aren't too many places around Lavington for a quick lunch with the traffic now days.

“Its a pub 1st.A sports venue 2nd and A restaurant restaurant 3rd..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

The food was average. Dont expect much and you will be satisfied throw back a beer and its fine. I wouldn't, come here just for food again. But if I was watching rugby I would eat and enjoy.. Some interesting items on the menu that sounded exciting with exotic flavours. But just turned out to be average. This place does not deserve the bad rating it has but its nowhere in the league of a "fully loaded" at karen coffee gardens, another (exceptiona)l sports pub in nairobi.
