“great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

Good coffee, good food. A little bit slow service at times, but otherwise ok.
The other great thing is the availability of WIFI, always comes in handy for a quick meeting.

All in all, its definitely worth going to Java house

“Very nice place to sit outside, free wifi, poor toilets”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

They have a great garden where you can sit in the shade without the impression that a very busy street is right next to you (Nairobi Hospital is very close). Standard Java menu http://www.nairobijavahouse.com/good-food/general-menu (though it does not have everything they offer, maybe they could update the online menu), standard polite and a bit slow service (which I can understand since the place was busy). It is not really big inside, but it offers enough. I have to say that I think they are cutting down on chips served along other food (chicken, fish or quiche, which is, by the way, excellent) - we are visiting Java branches for over a year and somehow the amount of chips got smaller, which is a pity. Toilets are shared with the building next to Java and are quite miserable, small and not really clean either. This branch in Argwings Kodhek Road is much better than the one in Mama Ngina Street, but still nothing beats the one on Mara Road.

“Great coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

The coffee was great, which surprised me that they know how to make a proper cappuccino. The food was not so special, but quite pricey. It was always busy there, but the staff had really given good service.
And do not expect to have Wifi in a coffee shop in Nairobi.

“Always great to be here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Well, it is a little late for this review because I have been going to Java coffee house for over a year. But I still would review so you understand how great it is. The thing I like about Java coffee house is that whichever branch you go to, the menu and service is standard. Great service I must say, and food too. I love the WiFi availability too, quite helpful when on a business meeting or when the traffic jam forces you to sit down somewhere and work.
