“Relaxing sit down in a busy airport”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

Kenya's main airport and the busiest airport in East Africa, it is very hectic when you look at it but the staff are courteous and considerate and quick, food and drink are nothing special but what do you want? it's an airport. Basically its exactly what you need when you've got a 13 hour wait for a connecting flight

“For an airport, not bad”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

This is the best place to hang out at the airport. Be sure to go into the restaurant part even if you only want a snack, that way you get out of the crowded part. The food is not as good as in the Java houses in other parts of Nairobi, but understandable I guess. Their coffee is great.

“Best place to spend time at the airport”
Reviewed November 20, 2013 via mobile

The coffee here is one of the best you can come across and beats Starbucks by a mile any day. The flavours are strong and the blend matched by taste buds for which I even got a kilo of beans from there.
The aiport departure is really bad and this is where you can kill sometime.
Price is reasonable and the smell of coffee is just gorgeous in an otherwise boring airport.

In a very busy and confusing airport, this was a little heaven! Friendly staff, and bought beans to take home.

“Good Option”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Nice to be back at this restaurant after the fire incident at the airport. Impress the way every is put in place. The only issue is still the un necessary delay in service such taking your order and payment.
