“Makati Bar”
Reviewed March 20, 2014 via mobile

This venue gets confused with Makuti Bar, which was first to use the name. Makuti Bar is located in Timboni and is a truly traditional African bar run by a Kenyan. If you would like to experience a typical Kenyan local bar pay visit ask for Juma and mention my name. He will either by you a beer or throw you out, depending how drunk I was last time I was there.

“Avoid the place”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

After waiting for 1 1/2 hours for the food to arrive, when checking with the waiter, he told me that they had more customers. When my chicken and fries finally arrived, it looked and smelled delicious, so I started to eat. After eating some, I found out that the chicken was still raw inside. Not a good thing with a salmonella risk. The cook came over and offered to cook it more, but I didn't want to eat dinner with my flashlight on the phone shining to check each bite. The owner then came over and told me I didn't have to pay and I left within almost empty stomache
