“Great veggie burger”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

This is so not my scene. But if you get there early you can eat a really good veggie burger and drink some decent house wine before the madness begins. Atmosphere is pretty grimy, dark and dreadful. Eat outside so you can look elsewhere...like straight up perhaps...

“Lively bar, reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Quite busy, several separate bars in one location, a nice mix of expats and locals in a lively, close to the centre of Westlands.

“Local expat hangout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Friendly venue to soak some local atmosphere. Seems to be a popular local expat hangout with lots of after work groups. Decent food too!

“No, not for me..”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

I have had a very very bad experience with this place. As a black woman and not a pro, it’s not a place to go…talk about stereotyping especially by the staff! While, It is true there are quite a number of ladies of the night, however being a young black female does not automatically constitute that you’re on the clock. More so, if the management are keen on keeping out “fallen women”, well sorry they have **FAILED** miserably.

Yes, it’s overpriced but that is not unique to the place.It’s a common occurrence in Nairobi. Initially when Gipsy opened a couple of years back, the food was great. That was then... now I cannot give any criticism or praise in the spirit of fairness and honesty.

This was my personal experience that may not be shared but hopefully you can get an insight on what to expect. My final words… I will never go back there even if it’s the last place on earth to survive an apocalypse :-/
