I call this place my home of football. It is located on club road opposite Gillanis supermarket in Nakuru 159km from Nairobi. It has been in Nakuru since 1907. The structure hasn’t changed much since then. The building looks ancient yet its so well maintained. The floors are wooden and the chairs in the lounge are quite classy. There is a restaurant on the ground floor where they serve an array of dishes but their chicken is exquisite. They have a bar on the first floor with a view of the lawn and the tennis court and football pitch. The food and drinks in the club are charged on your membership card. Joining the club has a lot of requirement but the monetary requirement is a one time payment of close to 250,000/=. The club also has a world class gym and swimming pool. I usually go there to play soccer or watch soccer at the bar. Its a cool place for chill Sunday family outings or business meetings.
For most people who have travelled long distances be it to Mombasa, Nairobi, Malaba or Dar es Salaam, you know that modern coast is the go to travel companion. It embodies comfort and luxury when taking long trips. The buses are really big therefore really spacious. When booking, there is an option of either VIP, first class or business class. The economy class seats are comfortable, well spaced, can incline and have a charging ports. For a trip from say Nairobi to Mombasa, you will pay KES1800. The VIP are something else. Those seats are huge. They are the epitome of comfort. Its like traveling while seated on your home couch. They have curtains to shield you from the sun and even cup holders. For a similar trip, you’ll part with KES2200. TE=he first class tickets for a similar trip cost KES2,000. Their offices in Nakuru are located at KFA. The drivers are also very friendly and while travelling, you always get stops to refresh and get food. I have travelled severally with them and I would recommend it to anyone.
This fast food joint has many branches all over Nairobi. There are branches at TRM, Garden City, Thika, Moi Avenue and many others. The one in town is usually pretty full so I suggest going there when it's not rush hour. The chicken here is very tasty and they have a spicy option. They are very affordable with chicken being 100KES a piece and large fries being about 210KES. Their fries are seasoned and you can request the sweet and sour sauce. They also sell coleslaw to go with your meal at an extra cost. They also have more on their menu like chicken strips, burgers and nuggets. They also have kiddie meals at friendly prices. They also have offers for buckets of chicken for large groups.Their ambience is not crazy good but it has a modern look. They usually have numerous offers running throughout. This is the kind of place that you go chill with a few friends. I normally just order in to avoid the lines during rush hour. They deliver right at your doorstep at a small fee.
This is an new style of restaurant. New in that feels African. From the decor to the dishes being serve and they way they are being served. It makes one very proud. There are two locations in Nairobi, one at Delta towers and the other at village market. I have been to the one at Delta towers a couple of times and each time the experience is new. There was this time I was invited by a musician friend of mine who was playing there that evening. Once you enter you notice all the colour all the African themes. Its amazing. The spacing is also good so if you are looking ti bring a date or hold a business meeting, this place is it. I found the band already playing. Would you believe that the music sounds better in that African set up? I was quite hungry so I got the tilapia fillet which cost 1200/= The service is good and the serving is plenty. I’m surprised I dint doze considering how full I was. The night was very enjoyable.
Bolt is a taxi app. They provide transport services across the world in many cities. In kenya it's in Nairobi and Nakuru. My experience with bolt has been generally good. The drivers are polite. Their application is easy to use. Once you type your destination, the app gives you an estimate of the amount your ride will be. The amount usually at the end of the ride is not far from this estimate. They have an option of different rides e.g an extra large vehicle, a protect, a motorcycle and a plus. These are suited to specific needs of every user. I usually use this app to get about Nairobi. Especially during night outs to avoid driving. I also use bolt to get to school. Their security is good especially now that they have an SOS button during rides. You can also share your drive with your loved ones.
Carnivore is a big name. Everyone goes there, from family outings to meat lovers, to concert goers to companies holding events for their staff. Carnivore is the go to place. It is located in Lang’ata opposite Simba Saloon. A cab from Nairobi town costs KES270. I used to frequent carnivore because of Churchill Show. They used to shoot on Wednesdays and that place would be packed before 8pm. The grounds can host 10,000 people at a good. I used to go a bit earlier to have nyama choma .One of the best I have ever had. For a place that is almost always full, their service is pretty good. The food is always ready. When the show starts, I relax with a couple of beers. They also have this meat buffet. You pay KES3600 per person and as long as you lift your flag, you get more meat. That a meat lovers heaven right? If you haven’t been to carnivore, have you really lived in Nairobi? 10/10 recommend.
If you love hiking, this place has to be on your bucket list. It is a tough climb, nut worth every sweat. Mt longonot is located in Naivasha 90km from Nairobi. You will most likely have to use google maps to reach the entrance because the road signs are not so good. I was there over the holidays with my friends. We were charged KES300 for entrance. They charge non residents KES2800. We also got a tour guide. At first he asked for KES2000 but after negotiations, we paid him KES1000. The climb was exhausting but the view from above was worth everything. We didn’t get to circle the crater because it was getting late and we had to get back before they closed. There are some few things I wished I knew prior to make the experience even better. One, carry water, a lot of water. The climb makes one very thirsty. Two, get there early so that you can hike the whole crater. If you can, use the walking sticks at the entrance which they charge KES50. Other than that, that was a pretty awesome experience.
I hadn’t been to art caffe until recently when my partner insisted. We went to the one at Garden city along Thika Road. The mall charges a parking fee of KES50 per hour. The laid back ambience with music playing in the background is great. The seats allows for people to sit in twos or fours. The environment is also suitable for business meetings. Its good silent. My partner had the lasagna Bolognese which costs 1090KES. It took 10 minutes and the food was served. The portion was great. I think I’m the one who cleared her plate. I was stuffed and decided to have a coffee and an almond croissant which goes for KES270. It the best croissant I have ever had. They usually have happy hours for BOGOF. We got there at around 5pm and it was almost fully packed. I'd suggest to reserve a table. Overall, I enjoyed the date and would recommend it 100%
You see one of those restaurants that you have known since time immemorial? That for me is Merica Hotel in Nakuru ,which is 159km from Nairobi, along Kenyatta avenue. I have childhood memories of weekends swimming in the hotel’s restaurant. Eating fries by the pool. I miss those days. This hotel is glorious. Its the upper echelon when it comes to class. From the sliding doors at the entrance, to the transparent elevators leading to the suites. They charge between KES8000 TO KES13,000 per night for the suites. Everything about it is glorious. It a great environment for business meetings. It is also the ideal locations for laid back afternoons with the family. The last time I was here for lunch with my mum. They had the buffet and we paid KES1500 per person for all you can eat. The restaurant area has great seats with shades right next to the pool. The whole set up is admirable. I would recommend this place to anyone in Nakuru or passing by.
I have always wanted to know how a cave looks like. Living in the city, it’s sometimes difficult to experience some things. When I got wind of this place and that I’d get to explore a real cave, I was already sold. I visited the location on a Sunday morning. It is located in Karen which is 20km from Nairobi city center. You can use public means to get there or take a cab which costs KES570. It may be hard to imagine, but I came alone. Sometimes solitude frees the mind. I paid KES200 entrance fee. They charge residents KES400 while non-resident pay KES600. Till now, I can remember how fresh the air was. You walk and you feel nourished. Its crazy. I got to the cave and that thing is really day. I got in with a flash light. You’d be surprised how cold it gets inside the cave. I even saw bats hanging upside down in the cave. The waterfall was also a site for sore eyes. Leaving that place, I felt brand new. I 10/10 recommend visiting.
This club has got to be the most popular club in Nairobi. It's located a few minutes from town along Langata Road. An uber from there will cost you about 400KES. The decor is great. The recently added a whole bunch of plants hanging everywhere. It feels like partying in a botanical garden. I frequent the club a lot. It the energy. From the moment you get to the parking lot, you feel pumped. The place is usually full by 11pm so if you are going to delay, you have to book a table before hand. There are times where they have guest Djs playing, other times they have guest artists coming and performing. You never know what to expect with this guys. What is constant is the good vibes. The prices are also good with cocktails ranging from KES1100. Alcohol retails from KES3500. Every time I’m at the place I always get surprised by their service. Considering the number of people there, you expect the service to be slow right? Well, it isn’t. It really isn’t. They are always on your beck and call to serve you. It really lives up to its reputation.
This is a pizza place unlike any other in Kenya. I’m talking about artistic pizza. Pizza made like the Italians do. They even use the wooden stove to make their pizza. If you are used to normal pizza, at first the difference will be a bummer, but after continuous tries, you get to appreciate the rich taste and the efforts taken to craft the pizza. They have two locations one at ABC Place and the other at Rosslyn Riviera. I frequent the one at Rosslyn Riviera mostly to watch games with my cousin. A cab from the CBD costs KES500 but there is the option for public transport which costs KES100. Apart from the pizza, they also deal in the best wine and beers. The have wine imported from Naples. The beer is also great. Instead of having canned beer, you can choose to have drafted beer which is sold in glasses of 350ml, 500ml and 2 litre pitcher. It tastes so good. I think I frequent the joint more for beer than pizza. I would 10/10 recommend for pizza lovers and even more for beer lovers.
All the great events take place here. From concerts to Concours d'Elegance, Ngong Racecourse is the preferred location when looking to host a huge amount of people. A cab from Nairobi City Center cost KES400 while it costs KES100 to use public transport. The ground have ample parking space and the lawns are always manicured. Despite its good rapport, when it rains, the ground become muddy especially during concert. I have an experience where my pal and I attended this concert and it started raining at like 8pm. By 9pm, the place was impassable. There was not enough shelter for everyone against the rain and mud was everywhere. Then the distance from the grounds to the parking is something else. You end up being soaked before you get to your car. We still had a great time at the concert and guys refused to leave till the rain subsided. Got to love Kenyans.
Do you at time just not feel like cooking and you decide to get KFC? If you don’t, you’re missing out. I often choose to order KFC than cook. Or maybe I’m addicted to chicken. KFC has a chain of branches in all major town in Kenya. The one I frequent is at The Hub Karen. I like this one mostly because of the mall. Its architecture is quite different and allows for great ambience when having your chicken. A cab from Nairobi City Center costs KES600. You can also use public means which costs about KES100. You pay at the counter and take your seat for about 10 minutes then you go pick your order at the counter. When I’m really hungry, I get the streetwise 7 which goes for KES1500. At other occasions I just have friend and 2 pieces of chicken which goes for KES400. Their Krushers is also to die for. 10/10 recommend for all fat food lovers.
This restaurant is located in westlands, Sarit Centre. Only a few minutes from town. An uber costs around 200KES while a matatu only 50KES. I've eaten here a few times and I have to say the service is not very good. Their food, however, compensates for that. The amount of time taken to get your food once you order is rather long even when the place is not full. The ambience is nice with delightful music playing in the back ground. name. This place is ideal for work meetings and dates. Makes you feel relaxed while you wait for your meal. Their burgers are quite good. They are so juice and so full of flavour. I had the Jack Daniel's burger and I did not regret it. The patty is barbequed in jack Daniel's and serves served with a side of fries or onion rings. I had the fries and they were well seasoned and so yummy. My friend had the Cheese and Bacon burger and loved it. This day however was a BOGOF for burgers, so we ended up paying 1300 for two burgers. They pick the amount of the higher burger for the two. They usually have this every monday. The cocktails are good too. The bill came to a total of 3560KES but was totally worth it. I however recomend not going there when in a rush since they are a bit slow.
I love beer. I can drink beer for breakfast. Just kidding. That is the reason I love brew bistro. I frequent the one at Fortis Tower in westlands. A cab from the city center costs KES220. This particular one is at the rooftop so you bet the view is breath taking. They offer quite a variety of beer and their prices are fair. Starting from KES500 to KES900 for 750ml of beer. They even have a taproom where you get to sample locally brewed beers. Just thinking about this place makes me happy. Its not all beer. For the food lovers, they have brunch Sunday where you pay KES3500 for bottomless brunch, all you can eat. Plus their service is pretty fast for a place that is packed by 8pm. Its ambience allows for chill lunch with friends and you can also stay to the night where you get to experience the Nairobi night life at the rooftop. 10/10 would recommend for anyone looking to have a good time.
I was at village market and was look for a last minute Christmas gift for my lady last year. This store came through for me. Village market is a few minutes from town and will cost you KES400 using Uber. There were quite a number of stores but I ended up here. The store set up is very neat. They sell such a variety of goods and there is literally everything you are looking for. I walked around this cute store and I really couldn't decide on what I liked or what she would like. I found myself at the stuffed animals section and got the cutest elephant that I knew she would love. Its cost KES700. I also got a sound bar and a puzzle which cost KES550 for her. This place has quite unique products at such an affordable price. The staff are ready to assist you in finding things. The lighting and the spacing also impressed me. She loved her gift.
There was so much hype about CJs and I really didn’t get why till we went there with my lady. It is located in the CBD just along koinange street. We got there and the place is breathtaking. They really put a lot of thought to it. The place has such a chilled vibe but still very fine dining. There was this waitress, she was so welcoming and showed as to our table. We had reserved a table after being told by a friend that it gets pretty full during evenings. To reserve a table, you must commit to spending KES1500 plus. The service is great, best service in town really. The food was really good. She ordered the shrimp pasta which ,costs KES1500, and finished every bit of it. I ordered the quesadillas which costs KES1200. Their portions are quite generous. We also had a few drinks on the side. The price of drinks vary from KES500 to KES700. Everything about this place was great. From ambience to food to the service. It really worth the hype. Perfect place for a date or a group of friends to hang out.
This is hands down the best pizza in the country. I was used to the other pizza places until my friend suggested we pass by there after class. It was on a Friday and this is when they usually have their offer of buy 1 get one free. The one we went to is in the CBD Muindi Mbingu Street right after UoN. Its set up is pretty chill. The lighting is great. We took chicken tikka and peperoni. Their prices range from KES600 for small, KES850 for medium and KES1250 for large. They also charge KES100 for extra toppings. It took 15 minutes to get our food. The cool thing about this place is that they have this dispensers that you get to choose from different sauces and chilli to add to your pizza. I was quite impressed. I am not a staunch believer in debonairs pizza.
Valentine cake house has existed for years. It where we get our birthday, wedding and other occasional cakes. They never disappoint. They have quite a number of branches all over Kenya but you'll always find the same quality wherever you go. I usually get it from the one in langata. What I love about this branch is that I just need to make a phone call and my order is made and delivered at my doorstep. You don’t know how convenient that is for a cake lover like me. They have a variety of cakes but I mostly get the red velvet, the pina colada or the blackforest cake. Their cakes are really tasty, always fresh and very affordable. 1kg cakes usually go for about KES1100. You can also get slices of cakes at between KES150 and KES200. The customer service is also great. They tell you what the newest flavor is, what to try. I like it. To show just how good they are, they even have a baking school to teach others their great ways. Truly inspirational.
This is a new entrant in the supermarket industry. They have several stores in Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu. What differentiates them from the other supermarkets is the ambience. If you like shopping in an ambient location, this is the place for you. The stores are not very huge but the arrangements allow for a spacious environment. The also stock the widest variety of vegetables and fruits. If you have never experience the feeling and smell of fresh vegetable the minute you enter a supermarket, then you don’t know what heaven is. The place is rarely crowded which means you can walk around and get things at your own paced and, there are no lines at the cashier. Sounds too good to be true? Well this is the case at chandarana. Their staff are very polite and ready to meet your every need. The also stock the widest variety of spices I have ever seen. A spice heaven if you ask me. All that coupled with frequent discounts, I would recommend this place for all your shopping needs.
I am a huge fan of burgers. I can have burgers 5 times a week. You know, for burger week, I actually had a burger every day of the week. I remember the one I had at Urban Gourmet. I went to their branch in Garden City. Parking is charged at KES50 per hour. Considering it was burger week, the place had some traffic but I was able to to get a seat. The set up it urban. They have a good balance of black and gold. The set up allows for dates, business meetings and family outings. The joint also has a glass wall. It looks pretty cool. I waited for almost five minutes before I got the menu. I can’t complain since it was a busy day. They have quite a variety but I settled on Santa Fe burger which goes for KES900 but during burger week, everything is on offer. I have to say, it was a bit dry for my liking. I had to add lots of ketchup to get the juicy feeling. The food wasn’t that good but the ambience was great.
I am not a big fan of clothes shopping, but my partner insists on going for clothes shopping every once in a while. So, as a gentleman, I oblige. The other day we went to LC Waikiki in Thika Road Mall. I have to admit, I have seen the store but I have never walked into the store. From outside, it looks good. Glass everywhere so you can see the clothes inside and the sign shinning from afar. We got there and went to the men’s section first. To be honest, they didn’t have a wide variety on men’s clothing although they had quite the array of shoes and sandals. I settled for some slide that I wear till today. That says a lot about their quality. My partner got a couple of items. I think they had an offer going on. The were not so many people there so it was fun walking around. Their changing rooms were also pretty huge. I liked the place, I just wish they had more men’s clothes.
Baobox is the only gaming restaurant in nairobi. Located on the 8th Floor Pramukh Towers, Westlands Rd, Nairobi. An uber will cost you about 200KES from town. A matatu taken at odeon will be 50KES. The location is very nice. The service is amazing. Their staff are ready to serve you and you do not need to wait long for your food. You have to pay for the games you want separately from the meal so carry enough cash to pay for your games. They have a very wide variety of games to choose from. We went as a group of friends for game night and it didn't disappoint. We had a great time with amazing food. Their prices are also not very high. We ended up paying 8640KES for 5people including games. Loved the vibe and the ambience. They have the walls written in chalk and it gives a great design to it. Perfect place for groups.
This restaurant was recommended by a friend of mine and we went here with my lady. We were just in town for an event and decided to spend the night here. We got there at about 6pm and went straight to our room. The room was 8500 for the both of us. Luckily we got a room that faced the sunset. The whole room was lit by the sun rays. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable and the view was breathtaking. We decided to have dinner at the restaurant on the rooftop. We got a platter of lamb chops, chicken, fish and a side of fries. The portions were very generous and the food was so tasty. We asked for an extra plate to be taken to the room for the night. The sunrise was just as beautiful as the sunset. They brought us breakfast in the room as requested too. Everything was quite perfect here.
I spend a lot of time on my desk and my laptop working when I’m at home. For some time I’ve been meaning to get an office chair that I can spend 5 hours plus on and not feel my whole back hurting. I finally got to buying and I looked at a couple of places both online and physically. On this occasion, I was not even looking fir a chair. I had gone shopping in Thika Road Mall when I decided to try Furniture Place. You can see the various furniture they have to offer through the glass walls. They draw you in. The first thing I noticed was the prices. You know when they say it costs an arm and a leg? This was that place. Their products are top tier but the prices my gosh. After making my rounds and the staff trying to sell me on everything, I got this office chair a low-back matrix that costs KES18,000. It was the most comfortable chair I have sat on to date. I decided to take it home. Till date, the comfort and the quality is still top tier. I have to hand it to them regarding quality.
I think I might be in love with burgers. Or addicted. Or both. You must be wondering why I’m talking about burgers when reviewing a pizza joint. This is because Lennz doesn’t get enough credit for their burgers. The really don’t. Lennz is a great joint. It’s not huge but the arrangement allows for sufficient space between table. It makes it suitable for dates or family outings. The service is good too. The waiters and waitresses are always cheerful and food doesn’t take long unless its on Wednesday or Thursday where they have offers, buy one get one free, for burgers and pizza respectively. I have two favorites, the double Texas burger which has beef, bacon, an omelet, cheese and the double chicken burger which has chicken, cheese and the toppings. The go for KES650 and KES550 respectively. They are so good. I don’t know why I’ve thought of them. I might go to lennz today because of that. 10/10 recommend.
During the time when there were no clubs opening due to government regulation regarding Covid19, paradise lost was the place to go for the party lovers. It is located in Kiambu Road 20 minutes from Nairobi CBD. A cab will cost KES550. Although it is more advisable to use private mean. You will divert from the main road and follow the sign till the entrance. They chargeKES400 per person. We usually drove to the the side with the pond. But in order to get space there, you have to go a bit early, like 2pm. This is also a great spot for picnics. But there is a lot of space in the area. There is also an affordable restaurant and a liquor store within the vicinity. The place is also good for family outings. I saw some kids riding horses and there were quite a number of slides. Its a good location to unwind from the everyday city life.
If you are a fan of camping, you have probably heard of Cray Fish camp in Naivasha. It had for some time been a favourite for many for weekdn gateaways with partners or family. It is a 15 minute drive from Naivasha city center. It nears the Lake Naivasha. I was there a while back when I was in High School. I really enjoyed my time there. They welcomed us so warmly. We got our own conference hall since we were quite a number. We had lunch then went for swimming. They have a good pool and luckily there weren’t many people there at the time. We also got to do horse rides and camel rides at the ground. This place is good if you have kids. They will really enjoy. What I did not like was the accommodation. It was a little dingy. Would not recommend spending the night there.
This is a new fast food joint in Nakuru. Located opposite the Rift Valley Sports Club, this joint is making quite a name for itself as the ideal location for dates, family outings and business meetings. The first time I was at Chicken Baristo I was immediately impressed by the exterior design. I You could see its name from a distance and the art is spectacular. Inside the restaurant, the seating arrangement is also so well thought off. They have booths in the middle, tables for tows on one side and and tables for fours on the other. It gives you an easy pick on where to seat depending on the company you are with. The counter is on the opposite end from the restaurant with the menu branded over it. At the table, they have buttons that you press to summon the waiter. I had a chicken burger and fries, which costs KES650, with a cold coke which goes for KES100. The service was a bit slow but the food was tasty. Not the best burger but definitely top 10. I would recommend this place to any food lover visiting Nakuru.
If you are ever looking for a place within Nairobi CBD with great food and value for your money, look no further than Kilimanjaro. It is located on Kimathi Street with a huge sign post on the restaurant making it hard to miss it. I was there the other day with my brother. He was in town and we decided to have lunch. He asked which place serves the most food haha. We got to the building and past the stair to the first floor. It was around 3pm and that’s great time because at lunch time, the place is full. This older guy welcomed us and directed us to the seats outside. This restaurant is not very big on ambience unless you are seated at the balcony. But its set up allows for family outings, dates and if you time it right, business meetings when its silent. We got the menu and the waiter was very eager to inform us about the days special. I took chicken biryani which cost KES950 and my brother beef biryani which costs KES800. The food was ready pretty fast and my bro was impressed with the servings. “You have to know your city” We both enjoyed the service and the meal. Would recommend 10/10.
I am the biggest fan of burgers. That is without a doubt. I have eaten burgers far and wide but if you ask me which is my favorite, which is the juiciest burger I’ve ever had and which one I could swear on I’m going for burger hut. It is located on Mpaka road in Monohar center. The place has no huge sign and is very easy to miss. A cab from the CBD costs KES250. I still remember the first time I went there. I was with my cousin. We pass all this great burger places along Mpaka road and he takes me to this almost dingy place and I’m like, what is I this place. Although it is a good place to have a date or a private meeting. You know the saying, don’t judge a book by the cover? I ordered the double chicken burger with fries and a coke which costs KES1200. One bite and I was sold. It was beyond great it was.
We went with a group of friends here and it did not disappoint. It was on a friday night so it was packed and we had to wait for about two and a half hours to get our turn. We paid for two rounds each which costs us KES1000 each. I round goes for KES500. This comes inclusive of the bowling shoes. Remember to carry your socks or you'll be charged separately for that. They whole experience was amazing. We got so competitive. This place has 11 bowling aisles and it made it easier because we got two for us only. They also have air hockey and a few other games on sight to keep you busy while you wait your turn. They sell a few snacks here that were very yummy. I don’t remember the prices though. I'd recommend reserving or going early enough to avoid waiting for such a long time. This place is perfect for groups of friends.
The minute you walk into this store you will notice the smell that welcomes you. It's the smell of freshly cut fruits and baked pastries. I frequent the one at Garden City mall. They have a stand right at the entrance where they have different fruits cut up and packed for like 100KES.They also have fresh juices put in ice. It’s quite tempting the whole thing. The fruits are assorted. The whole store is very well lit and organized. They are well stocked with a different variety of items. They also have a deli and I absolutely love their lasagna. It's so good and you can get it for as low as 200KES. I loved their chicken too. Each portion is has its own price depending on the kilo. They also have price checkers along the aisles. Their liquor store here has so many different wines and that’s a plus when I’m shopping with my partner. She’s a sucker for wine. I like Shoprite because it makes my weekly shopping easy and it is never congested. 10/10 recommend.
The most affordable supermarket I've been to. This chain of stores that has a few branches in nairobi and most have a warehouse design to it. The place is huge and well arranged. They stock all sorts of products from health and beauty, household items, electronics and even farm products. It feels like the new Nakumatt. They have a deli and a butchery in the store. Their chicken is particularly good. I usually go to the one at TRM for when I’m doing bulk shopping. Their meat is especially fresh and tender. I like the boneless chicken which I get almost every week. The butcher also offers to chop it for you. Despite the store being huge, there are staff members everywhere to help make your shopping easier. They usually have offers that can go as high as 40% on selected items. They also have giveaways on their Instagram page. What a way to lure customers. Shockingly, it’s never crowded and that’s how I like my supermarkets
This restaurant has many branches all over the city. I frequent the one at The Junction Mall since it is close to where I go to church. We usually go there after church with this friend of mine. The décor is very nice and modern. The spacing allows for privacy and is therefore suitable for dates and business meetings. The service was good and whenever there is a delay, the waiters are quick to calm people down. The food is definitely worth the wait. I have been here so many times that the staff know me. I get to the counter and they are like “The usually?” haha. I usually have the single pork ribs with a side of fries which was KES1240 while she gets the half grilled chicken with rice which was KES940. It’s like a ritual but the tastes are amazing. The balcony area has a nice breeze and quite the a view .
This is a new chain of stores that only has a few branches in Kenya, one at Garden City and one at Waterfront Karen. The one at garden city is the one I frequent. I usually get my shopping done here whenever I'm in the mall. They are the best for bulk shopping with amazing prices and discounts every now and then. The store is well stocked and the arrangement allows for seamless shopping. You get what you want at the next turn. They also have a liquor store here and their prices are everything. I can’t leave the store without a can of beer. They also sell good quality electronics that last long. I got my blender here a few years back. The place also stocks fresh groceries. You see what I mean by a one stop shop? You get everything under one roof. The staff also seem to appear at the exact time you need them. They have a few cashiers which makes the queues long so sometimes. The parking is charge at the mall. It costs KES50 per hour. Pretty fair right? It the perfect place to shop.
This small artistic cafe is in Nakuru CBD along Kenyatta Avenue. The art on the entrance is quite catchy. This coffee house is small, cosy and the decor is a bit rustic. It has a nice vibe. I normally frequent this joint because of its convenient location(being in the CBD) and great meals. The service here is top notch and the waiters are so polite and friendly. I've had a few meals here; their chicken wrap which goes for KES350 is really good and it has avocado! I also get cakes and coffee from here. The cakes range from KES250 and coffee goes for around the same. This place is ideal for even solo dates when you need to get some work done, they have reliable Wi-Fi and sockets around the restaurant. It is also ideal to bring someone you are courting. The also sell occasional cakes such as for birthdays and weddings. There is parking in the area that will be paid (KES100) separately to town council. I like the vibe. Would recommend 8/10
The first time I went to java was a long time ago. This has been a local joint to have business meetings, dates or group of friends chilling. Their ambience is beautiful with all the branches all over east africa looking the same. The standard of food is also the same everywhere. Their service is very good and you will not wait for more than 15 minutes for your food. Their waiters are very polite too. I mostly have the mushroom fillet steak with a side of fries that costs 1100KES with a lemonade which is 210KES. Their chocolate fudge cake is the truth!! I've gotten this cake for my birthday numerous times and it doesn't disappoint. Their shakes are also really good with my friends favorite being the salted caramel milkshake. The food is very tasty. The prices are quite affordable. You can order in from home

Pizza Inn is quite a popular joint for most pizza lovers. It has numerous stores all over the city and a handful in Kisumu and Mombasa. The set up is the same in all the branches. The booths and the tables for twos and fours. Its a good place to bring the kids or bring a date if your agenda is to get stuffed.. They have self service here where you pay for your meal at the counter and wait for a few minutes for your order to be made. You have to wait for at least 20 minutes because they make it on order. Their large pizzas cost KES1000 while their mega ones are KES1250. I particularly like their chicken tikka. I always get it with extra cheese with extra toppings. They charge KES100 for the extra stuff. There is usually an offer on Tuesdays or Thursdays where you get a free pizza for each that you pay for. On this day, the lines are quite long and you'll wait for more than an hour to get your meal. There is a solution to that. They offer delivery services right to your doorstep. How fantastic is that? Definitely one of the best pizza places in Kenya.

Arguably the best ice cream parlor in town. They have a couple of joints within Nairobi. I went to the one in Thika Road Mall with a friend and it did not disappoint. They have a large sitting space and we got a little corner. They also clean up and sanitize after every few minutes. We were not sure of the flavors we wanted and the lady there was kind enough to give us samples before we decided. They have such a wide variety of flavors and toppings. I got a mix of baileys and cherry vanilla ice cream while my friend got mint with coconut. These flavors were the tastiest I’ve ever had. We paid a total of almost KES1200 including the toppings as they are charged separately. Their ice cream is worth every shilling. The members of their staff are warm. Their customer service is top-notch and the ambiance is good too. They also have ample parking in the area. This place is perfect for dates, families, and groups of friends.
After wanting to take my lady there for some time, I finally got the chance. This garden cafe in Lavington truly lives up to its hype. The ambiance is amazing.

This fast-food restaurant is popularly known for its shawarma. They are a Turkish restaurant that majorly offers shawarmas and pizza with a few sides.

Located in Old Mombasa, just a few minutes from Fort Jesus at Sir Mbarak Hinawy Road. The perfect location to try the local cuisine. The entryway to the restaurant was majestic. The ocean view and the dining area was out of this world. Having late lunch by the ocean was the best thing about our trip. The customer service here is very good. This restaurant offers a variety of Swahili food. We decided to try the chicken biryani which goes for KES450 and tamarind juice which was KES250. Although it took some time for the food, it was so tasty and their portions were great. Their tamarind juice is the best I’ve had. We loved everything about this restaurant. We waited till sunset to leave. Something to note however is that they don’t open till 2 pm on a Friday so keep that in mind. There are a few parking spaces for the restaurant. I suggest getting an uber.
Mama rocks burgers have some of the best burgers I've had in Nairobi. It is located at the popular joint, The Alchemist. An uber from town will cost you about KES200. They also have branches in Karen, Kilimani, and Riviera. The ambiance makes you forget that you are in Westlands. Once we were seated, I ordered the mango Maasai burger that cost KES950. The rest of my friends ordered different burgers from the menu and I am quite sure they all enjoyed their meals because they couldn’t talk about them. Each burger comes with a side of well-seasoned fries. They also give you a choice of the sauce you'd like. Loved their sauces especially the honey mustard and the mango mayo. They also sell alcoholic drinks here. They have a number of offers going on throughout the week. They also have ribs on the menu and although I haven't tried it yet, I've been told is very tasty. They also do deliveries to your office or home. 10/10 recommend.
The collective restaurant and art gallery is one of the most unique spaces I've been to. Having your dinner surrounded by art is a beautiful experience. This restaurant will definitely be a favorite of any art lover. I loved that most if not all of the artwork here were from Africa. The place is quite spacious and all the table arrangements are perfect for intimate dinners. The ambiance was the best part. I have never been surrounded by so much art in my life. The food was amazing. I had the chicken curry that was KES1350 and my partner had the slow-cooked beef ribs that were KES1500. I think the ambiance makes the food taste better. I had some beer to go with the food while she enjoyed some wine. We then had the tiramisu for dessert before we took some time to appreciate the art. It was a perfect evening.
This is a multi-cuisine restaurant serving mostly Eritrean meals. A friend of ours hosted his birthday dinner here a few months ago. We went to the one in Pangani. The sitting area was very spacious. Despite not reserving, we managed to get space for about 20 people. The waiters were so helpful in helping to make sure the table arrangement was nicely done and that every one of our group got a seat and was comfortable. Soon after settling, everyone decided on what they wanted to eat. They have a very diverse menu. The food took quite some time before being brought but that was due to the large number of people we had. The food was worth the wait. The meal was tasty and really spicy. We also had a few drinks before we left. The location was perfect for the dinner as we were in our own section and there was some privacy.
Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, popularly known as JKUAT is a public university located along Thika Road in Juja. A matatu from town is usually KES80. The university offers many courses but is renowned for Computer Science. It is a university that gets a lot of enrolments.

They have a mandatory security check before entering the school premises. They also have a number of guards doing patrol within the school. They offer hostels to students who prefer to stay within the school. Their graduates are highly sorted for due to the good quality of education they offer. .

The town around the school has numerous apartments that are affordable to most of the students. There are also many cafes and recreational centers around.
Kenyans love their rugby and Safaricom 7s provides an adrenaline-rushing experience for rugby lovers. It is a 3 day festival with games flowing back to back from Friday to the finals on Sunday. I haven’t missed the finals for the past 3 days. The ticket goes for KES1500 and covers for three days. It is usually held in the RFUEA Grounds along Ngong Road about 8km from the city center. On all the days, the crowd is packed but especially on Sunday. The tournament is usually on an elimination basis. The best of the best battle it out for a chance at the finals and the cash prize. I enjoy the energy that is usually on the stands. Fans with their team jerseys celebrating at the top of their lungs. Lots of beer and music. There is nothing quite like it.
This is an annual event held at The Alchemist in Westlands Nairobi. As the name suggests, it’s organized for thrift merchants to display and sell their products while the crowds indulge in food, drinks, and great music. The thrifting happens during the afternoon and then there is the main concert from 6 pm. I went for the most recent one. The ticket costs KES1000 and there is usually a dress code. The event starts at 12pm but I got there at around 4 pm. There was already quite a number of people there. Past the entrance, there are already thrift merchants displaying their products. This event usually highlights the best thrift products so you should come prepared to spend. I got to buy my current leather wallet. I love that wallet. There were also a number of joints selling fast food. Once the sunset, the Nairobi nightlife came to life. There were joints selling all kinds of alcoholic drinks. The performance was also great. This event is worth the try at least once in your lifetime.
Undoubtedly the greatest concert in Kenya’s history. 2019’s Oktoberfest was legendary. The charges are KES1000 for tickets. The line up included most of Kenya’s big artists. I was so hyped for the event and the experiment was beyond my imagination. It was hosted at Ngong Racecourse which is 12km from the city center. My friends got there at 8 pm. The event had started at 6 pm. Past the security check, you could hear the music and fans screaming from afar. What I like first was the beer. Tusker had set up a beer dispenser for 500ML of beer for KES100. They also had set up 4 stages. Ngong Racecourse is big, so the stages were far apart. When you were at one stage, you were in a whole different concert from the other stages. It was like attending 4 concerts in one night. Everyone was on the move, from one stage to the next looking for an artist you liked. The main concert was where we have Sauti sols performance. It was mind-blowing. I can’t wait for the next festival.
Located 13km from Nairobi city center, Mamba village is the perfect gate away from the hustle of the city. A cab from the CBD costs KES580 but there is the option of using public transport which is way cheaper. This is the perfect place to take kids whether on a Sunday afternoon with the family or on class trips. For sure, they will have a great time. There was a time I took my small cousin. He was very excited. At the entrance, the fees were KES200 for adults, KES100 for children, and USD10 for non-residents. It is a couple of restaurants. We immediately went got see the crocodiles. There are quite a number of them and really big ones. We got to see them being fed. There were also a few ostriches and we got to feed them. My cousin took plenty of photos and I could tell that he had a great time. At the restaurant, I tried the crocodile meat which was pretty good although my cousin couldn’t bear the thought. He has fries and soda. We had a really great time.
A favorite for many living along Thika Road, TRM is convenient and has everything you need in a mall. It is located 14km from the city center. Parking is charged at KES50 per hour and there is ample parking. There is even parking on the rooftop. At the front entrance, you get to choose a place to eat between Java on your right and Chicken Inn and Pizza Inn on your left. Past that you get to see the size of the mall. Three stories with escalators and lifts. Stores like LC Waikiki which offers trendy clothes and Miniso where there is a gift for everyone. The main supermarket is Carrefour which offers the best deals for bilk shopping with a touch of ambiance. There is also a game where you can take the kids for exciting games like bumper cars and shooting hoops. A delight to both young and old. The also a couple of banks and a fully set gym. It's the home of everything.
My love for burgers can only be matched by my sweet tooth. I’m that friend that will eat the most cake at any party so when I heard of D’s place in Lavington mall, I had to know if the hype was valid. The joint, I’m calling it a joint because of its small size, is located in Lavington along James Gichuru road. A cab from town costs KES400 but there is also the option of using public transport which is cheaper. I went there for breakfast at around 8 am. Surprisingly, I was not the only one there. The décor is modern and laid back. I had heard of their pancakes and that was what I settled for. The service is good and I had my food in less than 10 minutes. The pancakes were really good. Some of the best I have ever had. They are flat, even though I prefer fluffy, and were served with potatoes and mushrooms. The entire meal costs KES700. It is a good place for breakfast and dates. 8/10 recommend.
Garden City Mall is the second largest mall in Kenya after Two rivers. Having close to 100 stores, you'll find all that you are looking for here. They have strict security checkpoints starting from the gate. They have ample parking at the grounds and on the rooftop at a fee of KES50. The stores here are very diversified. You'll find numerous restaurants to choose from depending on your taste from Java to Galitos. There are also many clothing stores from Levis to Mr Price. You can also bring the kids to Toy world and Textbook center. There are also out door gaming activities for kids like slides and swings. My favorite part of the mall is the IMAX studios. The movie experience there is mind blowing. There also the only mall with Game shopping center and Shoprite. This is definitely that place you get all the thing you need done.
This is one of the most unique events in Kenya. The Safaricom Jazz festival is a favorite for many jazz lovers. You’d be surprised at the crowd this event pulls. It is usually hosted at the carnivore grounds. Knowing carnivore, I bet you that the food at the event is delicious. The event hosts the best of the best in the jazz scene from within the country and abroad. I have been to two festivals and it gets better and better. The tickets go for KES500 for students and KES1500 for non-students. The stage is huge, there are stands selling both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks within the grounds. Most of the time you find the CEO of Safaricom in attendance and this is a huge deal. The dress code is also something to keep in mind. This event demands elegance. Nothing beats listening to live jazz music past sunset and enjoying it with a wonderful group of friends.
One of the best clubs in Westlands. A cab from the city center will cost KES200 but public means is also convenient because you’ll alight at the entrance. The place is pretty cool. Its design is that of a treehouse. There are the famous mama rocks selling their delicious burgers right past the entrance. The cost between KES500 and KES900. The seating areas are great for dates or a group of friends. They have benches with trees as shades. The Alchemist is famous for EDM events and also The Thrift Social. It’s not a huge space but the coziness is something that grows on you. I usually frequent the club on Saturdays. It gets packed by 8 pm. Both residents and foreigners alike frequent this place. It is definitely a place to try out to enjoy the Nairobi nightlife.
It is located in Adams Arcade, a few minutes' drive from the CBD. As usual, whenever we travel and aren't sure where to eat, we always go to Java. They have really good staff who are very friendly. They showed us to our table and once we had decided on what to eat, the food did not take more than 15 minutes. The ambiance is great. We choose to sit outside because the heat was something else. The breeze was heaven sent. I always know what to get when I'm at Java; mushroom fillet steak with a side of fries that goes for KES1090. I also love their fresh cold orange juice that goes for KES220. It tastes like a dip in the pool on a hot day. We all enjoyed our meal. We had the chocolate fudge cake as dessert. I still salivate thinking about it. Java is the home for consistency when it comes to taste and ambiance.
If you need any electronic device and you want to be sure of its quality and reliability, Hotpoint is the place to go. They have been in Kenya for the longest time and are practically a household name for everything electronic. I can not mention how many items I have in my place or my folk's place that is from Hotpoint. From ovens to fridges to blenders. If you need it, they’ve got it. I especially like them because of their customer service. Whichever branch you go to, the staff are always keen on showing you the latest device with the best features or the products with the best prices. You can go to their shop for one thing and come out with several products. They know their customer service. They also offer after-sale services like delivering the appliance you have bought, let's say a fridge, to your doorstep, and help in its installation. For all your electronic needs, I would recommend you visit Hotpoint.
The Aga Khan University Hospital, located on 3rd Parklands Avenue Nairobi, is one of the best hospitals in Kenya. Being a teaching hospital, it has a great reputation as a leading medical institution. It is known to have highly qualified doctors and specialists for all your needs. It is also fully equipped for all the patient needs. Their service is not exactly great. You'll have to wait for quite some time to get served. Honestly, be prepared to spend a whole day here. They however respond promptly to emergency cases. They have some of the best doctors in all the specializations. Their wards are very clean and the nurses take good care of you. The place is usually packed so getting parking space is rare. I recommend getting an uber to and fro. They are quite pricey but you get value for money.
Buffalo mall is located off Nairobi - Nakuru Highway, in Naivasha. There was so much hype the time it was being opened and to be honest, most of the people who frequent that route love the mall. It’s a stone throw away from the highway and there’s free parking in the mall. The number of stores in the mall is not so many. However, they have all that you need. There was a Tuskys supermarket but it was shut down. They have a Java here and Spur for the rib lovers. Their ribs are the best I have ever had. There is also a small gift shop that has great pieces for souvenirs. They have good security with guards patrolling in the mall and a compulsory security check at the entrances. This has now become a tradition whenever we are passing by that route.
It is located on Nyali Road, Mombasa. We went here with a friend some time back and loved the whole experience. I liked that it doesn’t get packed even during the evenings. The theaters are also not full therefore enough space for some privacy. Their staff is helpful and friendly. You know how friendly the coast people are. We selected our movie and got some snacks. They sell a range of snacks including but not limited to popcorn, potato crisps, ice cream, and sodas. I recommend their caramel popcorn. It was so good we had to get more. The sound in the theater is crazy good. It made the movie so much better. They sell the 3D glasses for KES100. The prices for the tickets vary depending on the movie and the time of day. Best cinema experience in Mombasa for sure. It's a good place to bring kids too since they also show children movies
I was there some time back with my partner. We went on a Friday evening and it turned out to be a very eventful night. They have a cinema and an ice-skating rink. We went skating. They had an ongoing offer of KES1000 per person for 3 hours. That was quite a steal considering they usually charge KES1000 for adults and KES800 for children for one hour. I would advise that you carry your socks or you'll have to buy some there to wear with the shoes. We had a great time. The attendants were helpful and kind enough to teach some of the people that didn’t know how to skate. There was also good music playing as we skated. It was fun watching guys fall haha. I heard that the ice ring had been closed. Not sure when it'll be open but this was a great experience.
This four-star restaurant was the place we chose to have my friend's birthday dinner. Located on 65 Muthithi Rd, Nairobi, it’s easy to get a cab from Nairobi city center. It cost us no more than KES300. We got there at around 6 pm. We had made a reservation because it usually gets packed. The ambiance is great and the customer service even better. After taking it all in and settling down, we decided on what we were going to eat. It did not take more than 15 minutes to get served. We enjoyed some drinks while waiting for the food. The whole place is such a vibe. The food was very tasty and they have extra generous portions. We continued with a few drinks while we cut the birthday cake. They did not charge us for bringing the cake. Some places do. There were even some members of staff who helped with the birthday song. It is quite a lovely place.
This is one of the best transport services that have routes from Nairobi to Mombasa, Mtwapa, Malindi, and Kampala. What I like about Dreamline is its online booking. It makes it so easy to book without having to go to the booking office. You can also call them and a staff member book a seat on your behalf. I love their customer service. The seats are so comfortable having sockets on the side of each seat. They always make stops in between trips to allow passengers to refresh and get food. The drivers are were chatty but polite. There was a time I didn’t know where to alight, the driver was keen on making sure I alight at the right place. I enjoy my travels with Dreamline. They define travel in comfort and style.
One of the most renowned fuel stations in Kenya. It has been around for as long as I can remember and what it represents are quality fuel and quality services. The bright yellow and red colors of the filling station makes it hard to miss. It has plenty of advantages over the other stations. First, they have a loyalty program where you get points on your card every time you fuel at a shell petrol station. After some time, you can redeem the points for free fuel. They are also the only station that offers V-power which is a more refined type of fuel that ensures you get the most out of your car and that the engine remains in top shape. They also offer car wash services at most of the stations. If your car needs servicing, shell also offers that in most of its branches. This is a leading filling station and it promises to be at the top for a long time.
Juja Ecomatt is a small supermarket in Juja, 32km from Nairobi CBD. This store is very popular with the locals. It's located right before equity near the bus stop. They open till late. This supermarket, despite being small, is fully stocked with all necessities. They also have a bakery in the store that sells all the tasty goodies you can think of. I particularly like their doughnuts. They have melted chocolate on them and it's quite addictive. They have a Milk ATM and always sell fresh milk. They also sell furniture upstairs. I've noticed that they have numerous staff that is willing to help you find what you are looking for. The cashiers are not so many but considering there are not many people in the supermarket, it's sufficient. Their prices are fairly affordable and they usually have offers running through the year. It is the perfect place to shop especially for a student. You'll always find what you are looking for.
These are some of the favorite buses for long-distance travelers. They offer comfort, amazing services, and convenience. They are convenient because you don’t have to go to the offices to book a seat. You can do it on their website. They can also pick you up on the way so that you don’t have to go to their bus stop to board the bus. They offer transport to many destinations including Nairobi, Mombasa, Kampala, and Kigali. The buses have plenty of charging sockets. You don’t have to worry about your phone going off. There are also blinds on the windows. Their prices vary from KES2000 for economy class and KES2500 for VIP seats. This is for a trip from Nairobi to Malindi with stops along the way for refreshments and food. They also offer delivery services for parcels. If you need comfort while traveling, these are the guys for you.
If you have a sweet tooth, this event is heaven for you. I attended the event in 2019 at Safari Park. The tickets go for KES1200 for adults and KES700 for kids. I got there at around noon although it usually starts from 10 am to 5 pm. A portion of the proceeds from the ticket sales goes to charity. It is directed towards helping pay school fees for kids who need assistance. The set up is really good. You have everyone there: From individuals who want to show their baking skills and earn some income to a startup looking to market their businesses and established cake companies showcasing their prowess. There is also a play zone for kids. If you are looking for a place to buy baking appliances at great prices, this is also an event you should visit. The star attraction for the event is the live bake-off as the event winds up. It gets your adrenaline rushing by just watching the contestants compete. I recommend attending the event at least once in your life time.
This is the hub for all indoor games. Kids love this place. They have two branches: One at Thika Road Mall and the other in The Hub Karen. The first time you visit, you have to pay KES500 for a fun scrapes card. The card gets loaded with points. When you get to any game station, you swipe your card before getting to play. The good thing about this system is that you can use 100 out of the 500 points in one day. The next time you come, you won’t have to pay as long as your card still has points. They have all the arcade games you can think of: From basketball to bumper cars. I especially enjoy bumper cars. It makes dates fun. They also offer karate classes and self-defense classes for women. I like it because it is rarely crowded.
This is one of the most popular hiking spots in Nairobi. It's located in Ngong town, 30km from Nairobi City Centre. You can choose to trek from Ngong town police station or, if you have private means, drive to the wind turbines and start the hike from there. The entrance fee is KES600 per person. I would advise anyone coming here to carry a sweater. It gets cold as soon as you approach the turbines. The wind turbines are such a wonder. They are huge! It's a great spot for picnics especially at noon because any earlier or later, it gets cold. For those who want to trek, there are 4 hills that you hike for about 5 hours. If you plan to do this, get there early enough. You can get a tour guide for KES2000 although it is not a necessity. Make sure you carry water and snacks. The view from either of the hills is spectacular making it a great spot for photoshoots too. 10/10 would recommend visiting Ngong Hills.
I like this place. The amount of fun I have every time I go there is crazy. It is located at Karen Waterfront, 15 km from the CBD. A cab costs KES550 from Nairobi City Center. If you love water be it swimming or slide, this is the place for you. There was so much fun when it opened and I decided to go there with a couple of friends. I can’t remember a time I had so much fun. It's in a huge space and the number of activities is endless. This makes a perfect spot for team building. The game I enjoyed the most is the blaster boats. If you love bumper cars, you will enjoy this one. Plus it costs only KES500 per round. This place great for everyone. There is something for everyone.
If you are afraid of snakes, this is the place to face your fears. It is located on the museum hill, just a few minutes from Nairobi CBD. The entrance fee is KES150 for kids and KES300 for adults. The fee combines the entrance fee for the museum and the snake park. The snake park is right behind the museum in a beautiful botanical garden. They have quite a variety of snakes. You can be able to read about them on the slabs next to their habitats or you can have the tour guide take you through. The park I like the most is also the part that scared me the most. I got to put a huge anaconda on my shoulder and got some pictures taken. The snake is quite heavy and it moves slowly while it's on your neck. It was a mind-blowing experience to hold the anaconda. 10/10 would recommend for the adrenaline junkies.
I love getting my adrenaline going and what better way to do it than going for GP Karting. The one I frequent is near carnivore. A cab for Nairobi CBD costs KES300 but there is the option of using much cheaper public transport. The place gets packed over the weekend so you should book a slot in advance. I usually go there with a couple of my friends to see who’ll be the next Hamilton. They charge KES1000 for a 15-minute lap. The price is fair because the experience is worth every cent. Once you get there, you are given a helmet, overalls, and shoes. You are then shown how to operate the machine. It’s quite simple really. Then the racing begins. The competitiveness of go-karting is unmatched. I love every single second of it. 10/10 would recommend.
This is one of those locations you don’t think you need to visit. Once you experience it, you wonder why it took you so long to visit. It is a walking distance from the city center. It is advisable to book a tour in advance because, at times, the slots get fully booked. The entrance fee is KES100 for citizens and KES400 for residents. It’s in a huge space and there are a lot of trains to see. All the trains there are vintage: mostly from the early 1900s. Their employees must be working over time because all the trains are always spotless. This is a great spot for photoshoots. The ambiance is superb. It is also a good place for picnics. There are tour guides to take you through the different trains and the years they were made. It’s a very wholesome experience.
The Nairobi National Museum is one of Kenya’s national heritage. Located 10 minutes from the city center, you can access it using public transport or take a cab that will cost about KES150. The place is quite huge which makes it hard to miss it. They also have a huge parking lot for cars and school buses. I’ve brought up school buses because this is a great place for field trips. Kids love this place because they get to learn a lot about Kenya’s history. It is also a favorite for creatives, who get to indulge in all the art in and out of the building. Starting with the sculpture of a mother holding her baby at the museum's entrance. There is also a nature trail which is quite beautiful and would be a great location to bring a date. In totality, this is a gem within the city.
Located not more than 10 minutes from CBD, this botanical garden has been my go-to place to be one with nature for the longest time. Being quite large, it has so many trees and ample sitting areas even when packed. There are benches all over the garden. This place is the perfect picnic site with a small stream flowing near the seating area. I was there the other day with a couple of friends. We had gone for a picnic. There is this friend who brought her dog. From the way he was waggling his tail, I could tell that he was having a lot of fun. There is lots of space for play. This place is also a go-to for people who love to go for runs. The entry charges are KES50 paid only through MPESA. There is ample parking space outside the gate. No cars are allowed inside. This is the perfect spot for families, friends, or team building.
This is one of Kenya’s most famous events. It’s is hosted about four times a year and the locations vary and runs for two days. In February, it will be hosted at Hell’s Gate in Naivasha. It features a mixture of African music, art, fashion, and foods. I have gone to a couple of their events but the most memorable one was also in Hell’s Gate and the main act was Diamond Platinumz. The tickets usually range between KES500 and KES2000. They usually have offers for group tickets. We drove there from Nairobi and arrived at around 7 pm. The event was an all-nighter so 7 pm was early. The place was already packed. We got in and the first thing you notice is how good people dress for this event. The food and drink stalls were in plenty. The stage set up was huge. I enjoyed the MC who was quite jumpy and engaging. The whole event was a success and I got back to Nairobi feeling nostalgic. 10/10 would recommend.
Currently the best mall in Nakuru. It is located next to the KFA roundabout along Kenyatta Avenue. There are two entrances to the mall making it quite convenient. The parking lot is huge but there’s a fee of KES50 per hour for the parking space. The mall is home to some well-known franchises such as KFC which has its building within the mall. It’s a huge branch and the only KFC in Nakuru. There is also a Java which also has its building. That Java is unique in the way the building is shaped cylindrically. A serene environment to enjoy your meals. The major supermarket is Naivas. They have a huge store there with the most aesthetically pleasing set up you’d get in a supermarket. This is where you want to go shopping while in Nakuru. There are plenty of small franchises like Safaricom shops and optical. All you need in one mall.
This is a famous event in Kenya that incorporates the best of African music which fashion and food. It’s a great event to sit back and enjoy the best of African music as you drink and interact with friends and family. The set up is usually laid back. They use stacks of hay as seats and you can also carry Maasai lesos or mats. The dress code is also very unique. The artist and the guests try to be most creative by incorporating African design in their looks. The tickets go for about KES1500 and the event starts from 2 pm till late. I attended one of their events at Ngong Racecourse and it was mind-blowing. The vibe is so relaxed, the artists are at their elements and the food and drinks keep flowing. You feel like you don’t want it to end. It’s a must-try for anyone in Nairobi.
It is one of the most serene in-town lounges I’ve been to. It is located in the heart of Nakuru town center and is a walking distance from Woolmart supermarket. I am a regular at culture mambo as it is ideal for taking a date, business meetings, watching soccer, or a night out. When you get there, the first thing you notice is the decor. Considering it’s in the middle of town, the decor makes you feel like you are away from the city life. It is green with grass on the walls and the floor. It has plants hanging from the roof. It feels good to spend time there. The service is also pretty good. They don’t delay on orders and the waiters are always jovial. They serve drinks and food at affordable prices and are open from morning till late at night. It’s quite a delightful place.
Arguably the best night club in Nakuru county. It is located on the outskirts of Nakuru CBD and a cab from the city center to the club is approximately KES150. The club is home to some of the best raves in town with DJs coming from all corners of Kenya coming to play at the club. This is my local joint and I frequent it whenever I’m in Nakuru. The set up is very laid back. The bar area and the place where the DJ sets up are at the far end of the road. The sitting area is under a huge tent and can host over 1000 people. The drinks are not pricy and the service is also fast despite a large number of customers. This is a great spot for nights out or even watching football games. 10/10 would recommend.
This is one of the oldest coffee joint in Nakuru. It is located at the heart of Nakuru City Center on Kenyatta Avenue next to Gillani's supermarket. If you don't know the place well, you should probably ask for direction because its entrance is slightly hidden. You go up a flight of stairs to the first floor where the cafe is. The decor is mostly antique, very rustic. This place is excellent for private meetings and dates because of the privacy. They serve an array of foods and the service is pretty decent. What I mostly like about it is that they usually have a live band every Saturday from around 6 pm. Tamasha band are the main band that plays there and trust them to bring the house down. If you are in Nakuru for the weekend, make sure you stop by.
This is a beautiful prehistoric site located in Nakuru country 10 minutes from the town center. It is the ideal place to take the family during the weekends or for school trips. The entrance fee is KES500 for adults and KES100 for kids. When you get to the site, you first notice the picturesque view of Lake Nakuru from the hilltop. Every time I go there, it blows me away. There are several activities to take part in including hiking on a beautiful nature trail, camping, and exploring the artifacts in the museum. I especially like the nature trail up the hill. This is a great activity for team building. I also like that the museum is in a bungalow as compared to the other museums which are usually huge. This one feels homey. If you are in Nakuru, you should make a point of visiting this place.
One of Nakuru’s most frequented clubs. It is located in the town center along Moi Road. The building that houses the bar and restaurant is quite the spectacle. It has these huge wooden strips with various colors. You can’t miss it. One of the best-designed buildings in Nakuru. It is a good spot to have lunch doing work breaks because of its affordability and proximity to the town center. I frequent the bar which is a whole different vibe during the night. The parking space is right outside the club and it is huge and safe. The club is spacious and has a really good setup that reduces crowding. It has a ground floor and the first floor which provides ample space during nights out. Their drinks are not pricey and the service is average. It is a good spot to chill and enjoy great music and drinks.
This is a small chill spot in Nakuru. It is located in Naka area right next to Oginga Oginga avenue. The spot may look small from the outside but once you are inside, you notice how the arrangement has allowed for sufficient spacing. The decor is very basic. The bare minimum to be honest but the service is very prompt. The drinks are also well priced. They also serve nyama choma and I know for a fact that they have one of the best nyama choma in Nakuru. I frequent this joint on the weekend to watch football. A weekend here with the guys is sure to relieve all the week’s stress. It is also ideal for revelers because of its great Djs and ample dancing space. They also have a huge parking space to ensure the safety of your car. It a good place to relax and grab a few drinks.
Nairobi and its wonders. It has a giraffe center a few minutes from the city center in Lang’ata. A cab costs KES700 but there is the option of using public transport which is way cheaper. The entrance cost is KES400 for citizens and residents. A non-resident is charged KES1500. I have been there a couple of times and nothing prepares you for the experience of feeding the giraffes. First things first, did you know that giraffes have blue/purple tongues? I didn’t know that. Their tongues are also really round considering they feed on acacia leaves, that makes sense. There is also a nature trail where you can take part in bird watching. They also house warthogs and ostriches which you get to feed. It is quite the experience for KES400. An ideal location for family outings, dates, and school field trips.
There is always something to do in Nairobi. It is truly in a league of its own. One such activity is visiting Uhuru Gardens. It is located just a few minutes from the city center. A cab from the CBD costs KES180 only. It is the ideal spot for picnics and for kids to play in the lush green gardens. I have been there a few times and the activity I enjoy the most is the boat rides. A boat ride goes for KES200 and you get to enjoy 15 minutes going around the pond. It is a good place to kick back and relax. Most people go there for picnics. The great thing is that it is huge and therefore no one infringes on your space at any given time. If you want to take your kids to have fun or go on a date including boat rides, this is the place for you.
I can not stress how much fun I’ve had in Chaka Ranch. It is located in Chaka which is a 40 minutes drive from Nyeri town. My grandparents live in Nyeri so every time we go to visit, we must make a stop at Chaka Ranch. I usually go there with my brothers and cousins. I don’t know how it escalates, but we have such competitive quad bike rides. They also have a water park, skating, and go-karting. The charges range from KES2500 to KES10000 if you want to take part in all the activities. There is also a restaurant that serves food, soft drinks, and alcoholic drinks. It is an ideal place for family outings and team building. The quad bike gets your blood racing. No one wants to lose haha. If you are ever in Nairobi, make a point of visiting. 10/10 would recommend.
The amazing thing about Nairobi is its interaction with wildlife. Every corner of Nairobi you will find either a park or waterfalls or caves. It is quite a unique city to live in. I have been to many places in Nairobi but there is something about the Nairobi Nature walk that stands out for me. It is located in Karen, 7km from the city center. A cab costs KES450. The entrance fee is KES200 for adults and KES100 for kids. The last time I was there, I went with my partners for a date of some sort. The design of the walk above the parks is mind-blowing. I liked how we share the same path with monkeys so make sure you carry a few bananas to feed them. I didn’t get to see a lot of wildlife but the serenity of the whole walk was more than enough for me. 10/10 would recommend.
This is the one place where kids will have the time of their lives. It is located along Haile Selassie Avenue in Nairobi. A cab from the city center costs KES200 but they are the option of using public transport. I remember my first time there, it was on a Saturday. I took my small cousin who would stop talking about the place. All his classmates had been to the place except him. We went there at around noon and to my surprise, the place was already packed. They have every sort of rides and activities you could think of. From merry go rounds to bumper cars. My cousin wanted to try out everything. Good thing they have joints for food and drinks so all I had to do was watch him from a distance. When we got home, he wouldn’t stop talking about the place for a week. 10/10 would recommend.
One of the most serene malls I have been to. It is located along Limuru Road in Ruaka. A cab from town costs KES570 but there is the option of using public transport. The area surrounding the mall is very upscale and the mall itself portrays a very posh look. It is mainly frequented by the people living around the mall because of its distance from Nairobi City Center. It is home to various stores and has a gym and a spa. I frequent the mall because of its amazing pizza joint. It houses the 360 degrees pizza joint known for its unique flavor. The parking lot is huge and rarely gets full. The main supermarket is Chandarana Food plus which meets all your shopping needs and fresh produce. If you want to kick back and spend some time with the kids while enjoying food and drinks, this is the place to be.
A three-day festival to celebrate African culture, music, art, and food. This is an event that embodies the fun in everything African. The festival runs for 3 consecutive days and you have the choice of buying a seasonal ticket for KES4500 for the 3 days or you can get daily tickets which cost KES2000. I have been to one of their festivals held at the Ngong Racecourse waterfront. A tip I can give to anyone planning to attend, dress to kill. The fashion statements that fans and artists make at that event is second to none. It is mandatory to be as fashionable and creative as possible. There are food and drinks in every corner so make sure your cup is never empty. I especially enjoyed the performance by Miss Karun. Her voice is like that of an angel. This is an event that one should visit at least once in their life. 10/10 would recommend.
If you want a concert that will bring the biggest international acts right to your doorstep, Jameson connects it to the event for you. I think their main selling point is the international act. Whenever there is a Jameson concert, the main headliner is a huge international act. I remember the last one I went to, they had Ty Dolla Sign. The tickets cost KES2000 each but there are usually options for group tickets which carry a discount. This particular event was held at the Ngong racecourse. If you know Kenyan events, whenever they choose the racecourse, they want to pull a crazy huge crowd and that event was packed. W got there at around 9 pm and the movement at the entrance was seamless. Although you have to be cautious during these events not to lose your phone. There was a food and drink stall in every corner and the main act was mind-blowing. For Jameson connects, I give a 10/10 recommendation.
This is one of the most frequented malls in Kenya. It is located along Ngong Road. A cab from town costs KES450. The mall is home to over 115 stores both local and international. The building is huge making it hard to miss while on your way there. It also has a lot of parking space but you’d be surprised that it gets full during the weekends. Parking is charged at a fee of KES100 per hour. The main supermarket is Carrefour which offers amazing services and prices for all your shopping needs. I usually frequent the mall on Sundays after church with the family. We have lunch there and you wouldn’t believe how difficult it is to choose what to eat because all the great food joints are in the mall. I mostly go for subway. Everyone should try the subway sandwiches at least once in their lifetime. This is the shopping mall to meet all your needs.
This is one of the first malls to be built in Nairobi but it has remained relevant throughout the years. It is located in Argwins Kodek Rd in Nairobi. A cab from town costs KES300 but there is the option of using public means. It is home to over one hundred stores and offices. One thing about the Yaya center is that you can get lost in the mall. It is huge and the escalators are so confusing. I’m one of many who have gotten lost in that mall. It houses Mr. Price, Woolworths, and Chandarana just to mention a few stores. I especially like the Java and Artcaffe in Yaya Center. They offer the tranquility to enjoy your means either while working or on a date. They also offer office space but I bet it is quite pricey. If you want to do shopping or find a place to relax during the weekends, this is the place for you.
This is by far the biggest mall in Kenya. It is so huge that it has a theme park with a Ferris wheel. It is located in Ruaka, Nairobi 30 minutes from the city center. It is home to over two hundred stores and also plenty of fun activities for all members of the family. Before getting to the entrance, you notice the amazing murals along the road. They took their time to design the place. There are a couple of packing lots within the mall that charge KES100 per hour. The mall is home to famous stores like LC Waikiki, Carrefour, Galitos, and Mister Wok. If you want to go on a date, this is the place for you. If you want to do shopping, this is also the place for you. The kids can also indulge in plenty of games at Funscapes. This is the home for all your needs with a side of fun.
Goodlife pharmacy has many branches all over the country. They have branches located in Garden City, Kenyatta Avenue, Ridgeways, The Junction, and Village Market. It is usually my go-to place for all my medical needs. I frequent the one at garden city and their customer service is very good. The attendant helps you look for what you need and at times recommends which drug is better than the other. The store is well arranged and everything is easy to find. They sell a variety of products and are not limited to just drugs. They are known for stocking authentic drugstore makeup. The store also has an in-house lab which is very efficient. My visits here are always great. I always get what I'm looking for and the prices are pretty fair. They also offer delivery at a small fee which is quite convenient. Plus it has cheap parking fees. I 10/10 recommend.
My first time at this lounge located in Nyali Centre, Mombasa, was crazy fun. It was an abrupt decision as we were having late lunch nearby and decided to pop by. It did not disappoint. The ambiance is really good. It has a large sitting space and the sound quality of the music is pretty solid. We got a great spot to sit and the rest followed. Their drinks are affordable with a bottle of gin going for KES3500. They also had an ongoing offer for cocktails and beers. We loved it. They had hired a guest DJ and he was on point throughout the night. The food was very tasty especially the chicken which was around KES600. Everything about that night was great. It was a great way to end our trip. Would recommend this for an eventful night.
Mister Wok Chinese restaurant in capital center was the first Chinese restaurant I had been to. We went there with a friend who loves Asian food. We got a table quite fast since the place wasn't so busy. The lighting gives the ambiance that extra touch. It was very intimate. The members of their staff were very kind and polite. Being my first time, I took some time to decide on what to eat. I also needed some time to get a hang of using the chopsticks. I finally settled for the Schezuan spicy noodles which cost KES550 and my friend had their sweet and sour chicken which was KES900. After tasting her food, I ordered the same as she, and we finished the noodles together. Their food was quite tasty and very affordable. We both enjoyed our meals. I can't wait to try more from their menu.
Rapids camp is located on Makutano Sagana Rd Riandira, Sagana. This camp is popularly known for its numerous activities. You have to book in advance for the activities especially if it's a large group. We paid an entrance fee of KES250 each. It's a really good place for team-building activities. The rapids camp also offers camping facilities for KES 2000 per person. While at it, try the water sports especially kayaking over the waterfalls if you are an adrenaline lover. They currently have an offer for KES6000 per person for 2 days 1 night for kayaking, plunge waterfall challenge, camping and meals full board. You get to sleep with the sounds of a waterfall. They also have bonfires in the evening and you get to be one with nature. Our experience here was amazing. Make sure you try the plunge waterfalls.
This private university is located a few kilometers from Nakuru CBD. I had a chance to visit the university sometime last year. My friend was applying and we decided to take the tour. Due to its distance from the busy CBD, the university has maintained a serene environment throughout the school with well-manicured lawns and quiet surroundings. The perfect environment for a student. The university has all the facilities required to learn with modern buildings and a fully stocked and huge library. Their receptionist attended to us very well and gave us all the information necessary. Kabarak University prides itself on being a Christian school of choice. They offer several different courses including Law, Economics, Engineering, and Pharmacy. They have accommodation offered in school for all their students. Although the tuition fees required to study here are fairly high, it is worth it.
Uncle nene's offers tasty gourmet burgers. I tried them recently during the Nairobi burger week and I now see what I've been missing out on. They are only available for deliveries. They have a variety of burgers on their menu but I got to try 2. Their beef bacon burger which goes for KES750 came with a side of fries and soda because of the ongoing burger week. It was my favorite. The patty was so juicy and well marinated with different flavors. Their fries were well seasoned and came with sauces and some coleslaw. Their fries were pretty good. My friend had the classic chicken burger which was KES650 and also came with fries and soda. The whole meal was really tasty and their portions were very generous. I 10/10 recommend Uncle nene's burgers. They offer value for money.
This cafe has bottomless coffee and hot chocolate deals. The perfect spot to get your work done in the morning while enjoying a variety of affordable meals. I love their bottomless coffee deals. Their coffee ranges from KES200 to KES300. Their hot chocolate is KES350 and worth every shilling. The food portions are great and the food is always tasty. I particularly love their mugg and bean classic breakfast which goes for KES650. The honey-glazed bacon was amazing. I didn't like their fries because they weren't well seasoned and were a bit dry. Everything else met my expectations. Their staff is very friendly and polite. The ambiance is laid back and simple. They have great wifi and ample parking in most of their branches. You'll love this place if you are a sweet tooth. The pastries here are very tasty.
I've been here a couple of times and every time I'm impressed. This Italian restaurant located in a garden city mall has a broad menu catering to different tastes. They even have a vegetarian selection. The ambiance is unique and has a rustic look and feel. We always reserve the outdoor sitting space. The staff here are very friendly. They'll even guide you on what to eat if you ask. The last time here I got their grilled lamb skewers which were KES 790. My friends got to make their pizza plus chose all their toppings. We also got some cocktails which ranged from KES 690 to KES 900 and beer for KES 500. This place gets quite full during the weekends so I'd suggest reserving prior. We ended up paying a total of about KES 5680 which was quite fair for 3 people. There is ample parking on the site. Perfect for intimate dates.
This Brazillian restaurant has been on our bucket list for such a long considering all the hype it had received. We decidedly to try it out with a few friends. Located just a few minutes from CBD at Galana plaza, ground floor. We sat at the outdoor sitting area. The place was barely full. The waiters were so polite and attended to us promptly. They offered over 10 different types of meat and every time you wanted more, all you needed to do is just turn the card on the table from red to green and the waiter would come to serve you. We made sure to taste the pork, chicken, beef, lamb, goat, and crocodile. The chicken was really tasty. After a few rounds, we were all full and we had not had dessert yet. We had to taste their cakes and icecream before we left. For just KES2500 per person. What a deal!
After hearing about this place through a friend, we decided to try it out. It is located just a few minutes from Nairobi CBD at Galleria Mall. We got the outdoor sitting space and loved it. The restaurant is spacious with ample sitting space. We loved the outdoors considering that the weather was perfect. We ordered the mbuzi leg which was KES1950, ugali which was KES150, fries for KES180, and some kachumbari at an extra cost. The meat was crazy good, well marinated. The fries were well seasoned. Their food portions were very generous as I had this meal with 2 other people. We also got a few beers and a glass of wine for the lady. I would highly recommend this place. The food is tasty and their service is great. The waiters were polite and friendly. Loved this place.
Located near Abc Place Westlands, this restaurant has the perfect outdoor ambiance. The restaurant is quite an eco-friendly place. Every few minutes, I found myself admiring different sections of the restaurant. They have a playground for children which makes it perfect for families. I came here once to enjoy a cup of coffee while waiting on a friend. I enjoyed the space so much that I decided to try out their burger while getting some work done on the computer. I had the Arbor burger and mint pineapple juice. The meal was tasty and value for money for sure. If you love Asian food you should try this place. They have a great menu of Chinese food. The customer service is not top-notch but you'll enjoy the space. Th his place is perfect for families or solo dates when you want to get some work done.
This small restaurant on Limuru road makes the best pork in town hands down. The restaurant has a variety of pork recipes to choose from. Being a group we decided to try out several different meals. My favorite ones were the kochokocho which was KES570 for 500g, honey, and soy which was KES650 for 500g, and the pork choma which was KES500 for 500g. There was also a pork wrap that was going for KES300 that I loved. I have never eaten so much pork in my life. We had these with the side of chips masala, chips, and ugali. The food was really good. Best pork for sure. Their service was also great. However, the sitting space was crowded and when it rained we had to move spaces which slightly ruined the entire experience. I'd advise getting take out. Otherwise, 10/10 recommend their pork.
Located in an old house Karen, this restaurant is the go-to place for a romantic dinner. Perfect decor with amazing lighting. You need to reserve prior because it gets packed quite early. The ambiance is fantastic with a few fireplaces around here and there. We were lucky to sit next to one and it was the highlight of our night. The service was amazing. The staff is well trained. Very prompt in attending to the customers and giving suggestions on the best dishes. The food was very tasty. I enjoyed every bite. We had the chargrilled fillet steak which was KES1850 and the chicken which was KES1400 as the mains. We had ice cream for dessert. The prices here are on the higher side so come prepared. Its, however, worth it. You'll enjoy your meal and the vibes. Perfect place for intimate dates.
This Bar is one of my favorite nightlife joints in Mombasa. It's not very big so we usually come earlier to get the good seats. The sitting space on the balcony is the best. Mombasa being very hot, you'll get the natural breeze. This bar has been installed with an AC. The decor and ambiance are great. They have a cool aquarium. The music is fantastic and the DJs are so lively. You can party the night away here. They also have cocktails that are to die for. They are range from KES 800 to KES1000. The food here is also very tasty, I love their pizza. The members of their staff are friendly and ready to help. I'd suggest going early on the weekends, to avoid not getting seats. Also, if you come before night time, you get to see the sunset from the club. We enjoy our nights here. 10/10 would recommend.

They have a large, well-spaced, and well-lit dining area. They observe COVID 19 protocols strictly. Once seated, we were quickly approached by the waiter and given our menus. After a few minutes of deciding on what to eat, we ordered. They have very good cocktails at affordable rates. The food took some time but not too long. We got naan and chicken tikka and mutton roggan Josh balti. The buttered naan goes for KES150 and the chicken tikka for KES1100. The mutton roggan Josh balti went for KES1200.

This grocery store offers fresh vegetables, fruits, wine among other things. There are so many branches in Nairobi. There are branches in Garden City, Village Market, ABC place, and the Junction Mall. The one at garden city is the one I frequent since it's in my locale. I usually go there for their super healthy smoothies and juices. They sell a wide variety of juices and smoothies at such pocket-friendly prices. I also love their variety of ice cream. They have this policy where you get to taste all the different flavors before deciding on the one you'll purchase. They have many offers ongoing both online and at their store. They sell 2 pizzas for KES1000 every day. Their food is quite tasty and has great customer service. They also offer home delivery for goods bought online through their website. I find this very convenient.
I’m crazy for burgers. I could eat them every day of the week if I could. My favorite time of the year, if I'm being honest, is during burger week. I try to eat as many burgers as possible from as many different places as possible. I got a chance to try out RocoMamas burgers a few weeks ago. This place has mad hype and it is worth it. I went to their spot in Village Market. No sooner had I sat than one of their waiters walked up to me and gave me the menu. Of course, I had to ask which was the favorite. I settle on the slacker which goes for KES1200. I didn’t expect it to be huge but when it got to my table, I was mindblown. It has 3 patties and 3 layers of cheese. It took me some time, but I finished it and I have to say, I am now a believer in RocoMamas. 10/10 would recommend.
One of my favorite bars in Nairobi. It is located in the leafy suburbs of Lavington. A cab from Nairobi city center costs KES500 but there’s the option of using cheaper public transport. I like this joint because of its chilled vibe. The premises is not huge and therefore, it gets full fast. It is advisable to reserve a table or come early starting from Thursday to Sunday. The decor is that of a cabin. Wooden everything, from floors to the tables and walls. It looks really good. They also have great service. You can get your drinks from the bar or you can have the waiters bring them to you. I especially like the karaoke session at Kengele’s. The crown is always responsive and they sing along to each tune. I would highly recommend their karaoke sessions.
This is a famous local joint on Waiyaki way, a 10 minutes drive from the city center. It is not a high-end place with a crazy design. It is pretty old and for the most part, not familiar with newbies. But they are pretty famous for their nyama choma. If you happen to pass therebetween Friday and Sunday, you will notice the number of cars parked outside. On such days, it is advisable to reserve or come early to get a spot. Their nyama choma is spectacular and the prices are affordable. When accompanied with kachumbari and beer, it is mindblowing. I have had fewer tastier meals than nyama choma at Njuguna’s. The decor is pretty laid back, nothing too fancy and the service is great. Once you get seated, there’s a waiter ready to give you the menu and a beer while you decide on what to eat. It’s a cool place to chill with the guys.
This one is a bit hidden from the eye so you need to be keen to find it. Located opposite Nyayo garden and just above best lady shop. This place is a hidden gem. You can start with some choma just before you enter the place. The place is chilled inside with grey leather seats and the drink display all over is so nice. The bar setup is so simple but very efficient. You can also get fries as you order your drinks. The drinks are quite a number ranging from local beers to international brands. All of them and very reasonable prices. We had a couple of beers and they were chilled and just felt right going down my throat. The waitress was friendly and had a warm smile the entire time she served us. She was quick in taking our order and getting the drinks. This is a nice place to relax and catch up with the guys or also come alone and take things off your mind. They have nice music as well. I’d recommend you visit it when you’re in Nakuru.
It's an amazing restaurant located at the Valley Arcade Mini Mall. The restaurant has a very good ambiance, it is very clean and well lit. There is also fresh air and it is well-spaced. It is located in a place that you can easily see it. The design of the restaurant is great with warm colors, and the wall décor matches the tables. The staff are also very friendly and are very willing to assist you. They have a good menu for food and drinks both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. I had their beef burger and fries and it was very yummy and the portions are filling. The place is also very clean and they have good music in the restaurant as they have speakers. There is also parking in case you come in your car. They also have a very clean washroom in case you need to use them. I would highly recommend visiting for chilling with friends or family. You can also visit their social media page on Instagram for daily updates and offers.
Tazeh meaning Fresh in Persian is a newly opened restaurant at the Two Rivers Mall. They are not your typical Persian restaurant as they’ve managed to incorporate local themes into the food line. Thus they have perfect harmony between Persian and Kenyan food cuisine. With hues of mustard and orange around the walls and a really beautiful pattern on the wall, this restaurant feels like home with an inviting and intimate touch. The artwork is also breathe taking. They have several dishes and drinks but I chose to go with the chicken Jujeh which is chunks of chicken marinated in minced onions and saffron and was accompanied with grilled tomatoes and crispy fries. The entire food had an umami flavor at it was just spectacular. You should also try their milkshake with is a signature Persian drink. Guess what?! They also have an open kitchen thus you can see your food being prepared right before you and as you drool. Plus, Tazeh gives you a 5% off on meals and drinks when you bring your mugs and containers. Isn’t that amazing? I loved it all.
From just the name you can guess that it involves outdoor dining and that’s precisely what it is. If that is what you dream of then this is the place for you. Tents hotel is a simple place that you can go out with friends and family and have a good time enjoying the breeze. It has a really simple decoration with high chairs, tents outside with plastic chairs and white leather couches inside. It’s a place where you can go and enjoy a chilled icy cold beer with your buddies. They have really good food choices and I personally liked the local chicken with ugali and a bit of kachumbari. The meat was well cooked and in large portions and to quench my thirst I had 2 beers. If you’re non-alcoholic, they also have soft drinks for you and fresh juice. For kids, they have and playing area that the kids can go and enjoy themselves. They also have ample parking and free Wi-Fi if you’ve come to work. The service is okay and they are quite friendly. They have nice background music to make your dinner more enjoyable.
This is the place to be in Nairobi near Ngara. Lovely place with a great ambiance and a medium brown décor of both the place and the sits with grey sits and tables at the balcony. It also has a scenic panorama. Yet another good place to go as family, friends, work colleagues, students and also by yourself. It’s quite safe with the guards up-front the entrance. From the name, you know that they offer grilled foods and specifically meat. Went ahead and ordered pork and some fries and I can certainly say that it was lovely. The meat was well done inside and the fries were crisp with a great sauce. I decided to go with fresh juice instead of beer and I was not disappointed. The day I went there it was quite busy but the waitress attending to me was so good and very fast taking the order and putting the food on my table. I loved the service. Also, the place offers Indian cuisine so you can enjoy something different if you’d like. All this is very affordable.
This is one of my regular must-visit restaurants in town and the food does not disappoint. It is traditional Kenyan food and always delicious; authentic Kenyan "hands-on" food. I would however note that the price of the food did appear to increased quite significantly since my last visit but still quite good value. We ate the Samaki with ugali and greens, yum! Everyone was eating with their hands, I asked for a knife and fork but in the end, set them aside and dug in with my fingers. If you’re a music lover, then this place offers you very good music from live bands or a DJ. The waiters were nice and friendly although it took a bit of time to get my food the effort put into making me comfortable overwhelmed me. Simply one of the best places to dine.
I managed to satisfy a craving I had when I visited Al-Yusra this month. We had planned to have their platter and I was extremely pleased when the waitress offered to help us piece our menu together. We had Pilau, mutton, and French fries. Their portions were so large that I knew we'd carry some leftover food. But it was so good that we cleared the plate in minutes! I also got the Chocolate Chip Cookie milkshake, which I'll probably still have the next time at Al-Yusra restaurant. The food was so good that we decided to get the chicken biryani as a takeaway to go and enjoy the tremendously cooked food at home. The food is super affordable and you get your money’s worth. 4.5 stars! If you're looking to have Coastal, Somali or Arabic dishes, I highly recommend this restaurant!
When my friend and I tried this place for lunch a few days ago, we were not disappointed! We had the 600/= daily special of T-bone steak with potatoes and other vegetables. It was served on a hot, sizzling platter and was quite delicious! The serving size was a lot, so we took home our leftovers. The dining room is quiet and simply decorated, with a couple of low-volume TVs. It's located in the center of downtown Nairobi and is easily accessible by foot. It has ample space for people to sit it but it can get crowded at times during lunch hours as people flock in. They have a mini-bar where if you’d like a drink they have a wide assortment of drinks to go with the mood inside. You can also request or book a room if you’d like to stay over and from the sights of them, they are rather very simple and comfortable. Great service as well. Overall, it was a nice experience.
Thick milkshake, tasty ice cream, and fresh virgin cocktails. That describes everything about this place from the moment you walk in. We entered and you can taste the sweetness in the air literally. We were gutted to find quite a line but since it was hot and we wanted to try it out, we waited. We were lucky to get 3 sits when some guys left. We decided to try everything so I went with the Honest mistake which is vanilla ice cream with fruits inside and some toppings. I must say hands down that was the best ice-cream mixture I’ve taken in my life. I loved the naming of the milkshakes and cocktails; funny as hell. The service was faster than we expected since there were many people and they were really warm and friendly. I loved it through it all. I’ll surely come back again and if you wanna enjoy amazing ice cream then this is the place to be.
A compact new little restaurant at the new wing in Sarit, serving a variety of healthy foods and drinks with good presentation and choices. Excellent service and cheerful disposition of all staff. The ambiance inside is amazing with the shelved counter with flower vases in them and the plants on the side next to the window trying to bring nature to you and the strategic set lights to set the mood. The decor is very aesthetically pleasing. Well visited by several; retired people, business lot, students, girls’ groups and friends. I had the beetroot smoothie, I forget the exact name for it. It was really good. They don't serve fast food, their menu has rice bowls, wraps, organic wine. I had the chicken wrap with red cabbage and a side of sweet potato crisps. Would be great if they served roasted sweet potato chips. The price is a bit high but it’s a lovely place and it’s worth the extra shillings.
We visited here on a Sunday afternoon and thankfully, it was not overcrowded. The staff was pleasant and the environment was a mix of romantic/shabby chic/country cottage decor in a pretty garden environment. The garden attracted birds and squirrels, which we also enjoyed. The menu featured many ingredients (such as quinoa) and dishes (cauliflower rice, breakfast bowls) which I do not see commonly in other cafes and restaurants. Also, there were dishes on the menu to cater to dietary requirements (such as gluten-free, vegetarian dishes). I ordered their juice and it came with a paper straw. They did it so quickly I was shocked. Excellent service. I love environmentally friendly cafes and restaurants. It is situated away from the main road and has a little garden on the side if you want to have lunch in the greenery. This place is so good that I’d recommend any meals on the menu. Their food is made from fresh organic produce so you’re bound to eat a healthy meal. Be sure to bring a book or laptop to take care of your business and you’ll have an excellent experience.
We rode a bunch of trails and then stopped there for lunch. The venue is nice with a large seating area covered by a very high roof, open on all sides, so it feels like you are still connected with nature. Lovely location in Karura Forest. Can't miss a walk or a bike ride and then stop here for brunch or lunch. Maureen made my reservation and she was not only friendly and efficient but professional as well. Kevin was our waiter and he guided us and recommended food and drinks and everything was so delicious! That said; enjoyed every bit of my Thai beef salad; washed down with a cold glass of ginger ale. They have a nice menu option also catering for the Vegetarian Friendly, Vegan Options, Gluten Free Options. The only downside is that the food is a bit pricy compared to the portion of food you get. But putting that aside, I enjoyed eating while feeling the breeze after a bike ride.
Set directly in the middle of Westlands, inside the fashionable Alchemist entertainment park, Brioche has you sitting among the trees in an immaculate wooden cafe you'd expect to find on the West Coast. I truly enjoyed the atmosphere of Brioche as it makes you feel it’s a European Cafe in a treehouse! Its setting is modern, very clean, and minimalistic! Just how a modern age cafe should be! And not to mention the quality of the food, I was surprised to see the variety of options on the menu! I ordered a power energy juice and was fresh along with a delicious vegan burger! I highly recommend this place, a great place to take your laptop and get work done, or meet a friend for coffee/lunch/brunch! The prices are quite reasonable for the food and service that you get so I was okay with it. Also, I’d recommend getting there a bit early cause there is a food option that runs out especially the pastries.
A magnificent place to grab a bite. I decided to give the restaurant a try and was surprised not only by their prices but also by the quality of the food. The food was fresh, tasty and the portions were great. The juices are also worth it. They offer a nice variety of grilled items, sandwiches, fish, chicken, and some Indian dishes. They also offer beer and soft drinks. I’d personally recommend the chicken biriyani cause it’s delicious, well-cooked and a reasonable quantity for the amount. I’ll always go back to grab another bite. The staff is very quick and pleasant. The ambiance is okay but it’s a nice place to chill and eat either alone or with friends. It gets packed in the evenings so I’d recommend you book a table or get there earlier. Overall I loved it.
Aladdin gourmet restaurant is located right along Kiambu road. Now I must admit I was somehow misled by Google maps before I physically went to the location. It looks a bit far off but surprisingly it just took a maximum of 25 minutes from the City center to get there. It is quite spacious, ideal for those who like to travel in packs and also if you like to chill on your own. The overall look of the restaurant is impressive, with their unique personal designs and layout to merge a mixture that is both cottage and modern. Though the name Aladdin stereotypically suggests that the food might be Arabic, the menu is made up of a mixture of continental as well as signature dishes. I’d recommend the Dutch potato salad for starters and Aladdin Chicken cubes with ‘fat’ chips or their very large T-bone steak made to your specification that looks as good as it tastes and the prices are quite affordable. The waiters are always ready to take your orders and it only takes a few minutes to get your food ready and served. The ambiance is terrific and you can always use their warm lounge bar that offers a good selection of beverages and sumptuous bites.
Café Arabika is my first stop when I land in Mombasa. It has a lovely ambiance and you can enjoy a lovely breeze outside with a view of the creek which is amazing especially at sunset. The décor is amazing and welcoming. The place has excellent food and it has a lot of different cuisines ranging from Lebanese food to Middle Eastern and of course local foods. I’d recommend the Lebanese mezze platter that was amazing and also the beef shawarma. They also have amazing mocktails. The staff is outstanding hosts, welcoming, helpful, understanding and their customer service is just way beyond. The view is beautiful and the weekends have good music. You may want to reserve a table on the weekends even if you are a house guest at the hotel. I’d love to go back.
What do you get when you mix a chilled-out vibe (at a car wash of all places) with great decor, great service, and excellent food? Geco! We came for lunch after a chance recommendation and couldn't have been more pleased. The decor is quirky and fun with a reasonably sized menu offering a bit of everything. The steak (although strangely done on a pan) is butter soft and delicious. Other items passing our table included tasty-looking pizzas and mixed grills. There is no wine list, you simply walk around and select a bottle from the many on display. The price is okay. If you enjoy live band music, they have a jazz band that plays on Fridays and Saturdays. you can kick back and unwind with a book there, or read what they have in the house. They have very friendly and efficient staff that make you feel comfortable and appreciated. I will happily return.
Look no further if you need a place for a quick bite or a drink at JKIA in Nairobi. We had to catch an early morning flight as three adults and were very happy with a wide variety of healthy breakfast options. We were served at the table and the waitress got us all our orders within 10 minutes. I enjoyed the tea and croissant which at least a bit fresh and the tea was very tasty. Great selection of food and beverage, freshly prepared food and juices, good coffee. I decided to taste the coffee as well and it a bit average for me compared to other places like Barista & Co. but it was okay. The place is clean and a nicely designed space with high chairs and different colored lights. It has friendly professional staff. Lunch and dinner options looked great as well. A delight to find such a place at an airport!
Located on the floor of the Sarova Stanley, it is a wonderful bistro cafe. I was treated to having breakfast there twice and loved it both times. The staff is very welcoming and attentive. I can especially point out and recommend Elizabeth!! She is like the ultimate hostess, server, waitress, and ambassador to the cafe. If at all possible, go there on Friday morning for the "Swahili breakfast". These additional and special foods are a real treat. Do Not forget to try the "Swahili coffee", even non-coffee drinkers enjoyed this. Thanks, Elizabeth for turning us onto this wonderful taste treat! The breakfast buffet has everything one could imagine. If you can't find it there, you didn't look well enough. A particular touch is fresh ground sugar cane juice (you grind it yourself!), it was really good. Made to order omelets, fresh fruits, bread, and sweet rolls (including sugar-free), and a full buffet of what one might call American and British breakfast items. This is a really good place to go for good food and service!
We have tried most of the Lebanese restaurants in Nairobi but I have no hesitation in saying that this is the BEST LEBANESE RESTAURANT here. This looks to be an old Villa converted to a restaurant but they have maintained greenery very well. I would recommend sitting in the SEMI OPEN area to get the best of this place and not to be affected by undue rain etc. The food is amazing, there's a variety of dishes which differ vastly and paired make a diverse and interesting meal. They have many vegetarian options. Even during these times, the restaurant has managed to maintain a high standard for all the food. Ask for hot Lebanese bread (they may not give hot unless you ask for it), garlic sauces; which are complementary but gives the best taste here. Also got the vegetarian mezze and wasn’t disappointed. The service was however a bit slow but we overlooked that and enjoyed our food. The price might be a bit high but okay considering the food quality and the proportions.
Found at the food court inside village market, it is one of those rare finds you unexpectedly come across somewhere you don't expect. This is an inconspicuous little food stall in the Village Market food court but their kebabs and rice dishes are excellent. You need to try out the Persian cuisine served by this restaurant. I enjoyed the mixed platter (chicken and beef), served with saffron rice and grilled veggies. One of the best meals I have had in a while. I also decide to try out their kebab as was suggested by the waiter. It was the best kebab I had ever tasted and I loved it and thanked the waiter for it. I also carried 2 more home. My waiter was awesome. Loved it. They don’t serve alcoholic drinks thus I had the vanilla milkshake and it wasn’t that bad although it took quite some time before I had it. Regardless, this was a nice place.
We enjoyed eating here. The service was excellent; the food was excellent. The ambiance was excellent and we were treated very well. We reserved for a birthday celebration and they gave us an excellent location in the restaurant and decorated it with balloons. We started with a veggie platter for the table, yum! My friend and I had the paneer (Tikka and Masala), garlic naan, and vegetable rice. Our guests had the African-style roasted chicken with chips. All thoroughly enjoyed. We were allowed to bring our birthday cake and candles, they provided the plates and forks. The cake was brought in with the waiters singing happy birthday to our guest. There was also a children's play area. It couldn't have been better. Great family restaurant, extensive menu. The prices were moderate. A must-visit if you're in the Lavington area of Nairobi.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that the food tasted almost the same as the CJs in town. Service is a bit slower I guess since Covid. The ambiance at CJ’s Village Market is out of this world. If you looking for the perfect ambiance to dine for family or couple, head there. It's usually very packed especially with groups so it’s best for casual outings. Very far if you are not living in Karen, best to use the town one. Our waitress Irene was amazing in helping us go through the menu and helped ensure we eat the best. She was caring, attentive, and kept checking up on us the whole time. So if you get the chance to come here ask for her. We had a side of plantains to go with our main dish Caribbean Jerk Chicken. The strawberry and mango smoothie I had was proper tasteful. Recommending this place.
I love coffee. Hot, cold, black, white, drip, brewed, mixed, machine, Moka pot, filter, French press; if you make it, I’ll probably drink it. So I appreciate a good coffee and Barista & Co. are at the top of my list. We were there on a weekday morning for a late breakfast. It’s cozy but not too small, and the decor is bright and minimalist. We were there on a weekday morning for a late breakfast. It’s cozy but not too small, and the decor is bright and minimalist The coffee was fantastic, which usually points to good quality beans (they have their brand-also for sale). The coffee is slightly more expensive than your average coffee place but based on quality, it’s delivered on every extra shilling. We shared a panini and tried the waffles. The waffle iron wasn’t cooperating that day so the waffles were underdone, so the chef offered us the French toast instead, which we thoroughly enjoyed. I’d love to emphasize the service. I experienced world-class service with the waiters extremely friendly and so was the chef. He came and apologized and explained the situation and brought us a replacement and not only was it good but the billing for the first removed, so was the second. It has become my favorite coffee spot.
40 Forty can be described as an upscale and cozy rooftop lounge with a high-end finish ambiance coupled with a club but relaxed sitting arrangement. You can pop in for an all-around international cuisine fused with really great drinks. I’d advise that you go there if you’re getting alcoholic drinks but if not it’s not all that nice. The music is great, a good enough crowd but can get crowded at around 8 pm so it’s hard to get a table. So you’d better get in earlier. The prices are quite reasonable for the drinks and food you get. But the staff are a bit slow at times although it’s a busy place at night. I’d advise that they tell the customers if something is up to clear any misunderstanding that may occur. Disappointing factors aside, it’s a pretty decent nightlife hangout. Also, their chicken wings are out of this world.
Happened to come across it while I was at The Alchemist and all I can say is it’s the best street food in town. Very simple décor and it’s outdoor. You can either eat while seating or standing but all I know is that you’ll enjoy your food. You get to see your food being prepared before you and it doesn’t take long at all. Man the aroma that resides at the place just makes you get hungry even if you were from eating somewhere else. They have very friendly staff and they’re very interactive. I loved the food here. Quality is on top, a true food experience. I tried the falafel wrap and crusted fish wrap, both were delicious. Greek salad is very fresh. Chicken nuggets are tasty and the cheesy jalapeño fries taste so good! I mean I kept on going for more and more. I like how they also have deliveries. The place can get a bit crowded and you’ll have a line but they’re quite fast and you’ll get served yummy food in just a short while. I want much more of their food when my payment comes in!!
I have visited 7 Degrees several times now and it has a good ambiance, nice open air space, and a good place to work and use the free Wi-Fi. It’s a nice place to go as a group and just drink the night away as you chow down on some nyama choma with some kachumbari or you can go ahead and order the fried chicken that tastes heavenly. It’s a nice place with value for money. The service is okay and they take your order and within a few minutes, you’re served. The bar offers both local and international liquor brands at affordable prices. Come with the crew on game day as you watch the match while drinking and eating good meat. The service is okay and the waiters are attentive and check on you every so often. So on the weekend in the afternoon come and chill and enjoy.
From the moment you enter the waiters receive you with a warm smile and are ready to serve you i.e. Caroline, the hostess has the best customer service ever! Her warm smile and concern make you feel at home. The food is to die for from the starters to the dessert, this is the place to go! The 7 hours braised lamb leg is tremendous and just makes your taste buds go crazy. Then go ahead and get the spaghetti Pomodoro with their roasted tomato soup and I swear you’ll be going there almost every single day. Best food I’ve eaten anywhere and their desert is just the same. Plus, it’s in a very generous portion so you leave there with a satisfied belly. The ambiance is also amazing with a lovely atmosphere next to a waterfall wall over rocks with greenery. I literally can’t wait to come back.
If you want something that is a little off the beaten track - but clean and well runs, with good food and a warm atmosphere - then this has got to be one of the new generations of explorer places. I went there with some friends of mine and honestly could have missed space but was lucky enough to get a table cause the place was packed. It’s easily accessible on Ngong road and the place is extremely clean. The variety of pork dishes can be overwhelming, but all you need to do is take a deep breath and ask the server what the chef would recommend and you will not be disappointed. The pork chops are a favorite for me. The meat is well done and tastes so good with or without rosemary and it’s also in generous servings. The customer service was also really good with smiling waiters ready at your beckon. I would recommend to come and eat some meat.
Nyumbani is a home converted into a restaurant. It such a serene place to be if you're looking forward to enjoying a quiet moment with your friends and family. We liked the fish with plantains, spinach and kachumbari were EXCELLENT. It’s a place that appreciates local cuisine especially from the Western part of Kenya. The fish was properly cooked both outside and inside. The ambiance was quite good and it’s a place that you can relax and take your mind off things for a while. It also has a playground that is very essential if you go there with kids. The waiters are always smiling and are ready upon ordering and they will gladly receive you and show you to a table. The place was really clean and had good hygiene and prices are affordable. The restaurant has a good vast parking area. I will recommend to everyone and fish lovers to visit the place at least once while being in Nairobi.
The place has got this nice vibe, it's not a big restaurant but where they lack space, they fill it up on the flavor of their food and drinks. I loved how this place feels like a little coffee shop hidden but not really. It’s nice if you want to work. The ambiance inside is top tier and makes you forget that you are in the middle of town. The service is good and they take your order and then immediately go to prepare it. The waitress we had was quite polite and open saying it might take a bit of time to prepare our meal and I loved and appreciated the honesty and courtesy so you’d rather get a drink as you wait and I had the choco-chip milkshake and it was amazing. I love their teriyaki burger, so yummy the way the flavor blends in your mouth. It's one to die for. This place is worth your time and has nice background music. Can’t wait to go back.
I enjoyed this place, it is a smaller pub but a great atmosphere and they say it’s famous for its candy shots. Good music and not too loud for a conversation. The staff is very friendly. Food and prices are great! The pub space is small you could say it's cozy if you don't mind a crowd. The party manages to spill out into the parking and at times beyond. This place seems to always be packed which speaks for its reputation! Parking after 9:00 pm is a mess, but there's always a cab around here. There are a few establishments in the vicinity that complement the pub's offerings of food, drinks, and such. But it’s well decorated and your drinks are fast upon order and you’ll enjoy your night out with very fast service and well-balanced music. Their name is good to go down with a beer.
A really warm and nice-looking place for families and a group of friends. It offers Authentic Kenyan cuisine, especially from Western Kenya. The taste of the chicken is like no other. They know how to work their way around a Kuku. Man the chicken with ugali makes your taste buds just water for more and more. The ambiance inside is great and it has a very simple décor inside and I kinda liked that. It also has space for your children to go and play plus vast parking space. My friend ate the fresh tilapia from Lake Victoria with brown ugali and from his expressions and praise that he gave it I’d say that the fish was amazing. The service is also quite good and they are good at quickly preparing and serving your food. I also liked how they were so concerned about everything that we need. Top-notch service. The food is in large quantities and the price just corresponds to what you get in terms of value. Ahh! I still have the taste of Kuku in my mouth.
Gameday and this is the place I chose to go and chill. There are good drinks and screens to just watch the matches in peace. There’s nice background music and at least the day I got there, there was a live band. Got me in the mood. Enjoy smooth cocktails and cool music with an uptown laid back ambiance. Packing is limited but considering that you are probably going to indulge a little, it’s advisable to use a cab. Also, watch your drinks as Hurlingham sometimes can be invaded by people who spike others drinks and rob them valuables. Service was average really; takes a bit of time to get your order to you. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the fish fillet with its sauce. Really tasty and you can just stuff yourself and go home well filled. I would love to go there and just chill one of these days.
As you enter the unassuming main bar at Ashaki and find a table, you immediately notice all diners around you are concentrating only on their piled-high plates. We ordered the goat ribs with onions. The meat is seared on the grill and then sautéed with onions to juicy perfection. It's impossible to not overeat. And since we weren’t satisfied we order wet fry meat and plantain and I tell you it was heavenly. And it was so fun watching them cooking your food and serving it while it’s hot. The beverages are quite a number but as you know meat goes hand in hand with beer and it’s there in plenty. All this is in quite the affordable range for any person. You should probably take an uber though, parking can be tight on popular nights. Has a great crowd and it’s just a great vibe. Good service for me and my guys. But you should note that they sometimes lack ribs and you should ask beforehand otherwise you’ll wait for nothing to come through.
254 Brewery is located in the residential quarter of Kikuyu, just off the Nairobi-Naivasha highway. There are signboards leading visitors. I was there at the official opening a few days ago. The brewery is in operation since September 2019. There are 12-13 different beers available, in kegs and bottles. It is hoped that many beer lovers will patronize this new brewery and I being one of them have already taken the step. The décor is honestly really simple and inviting to anyone new who comes to the place. As you know that beers go hand in hand with meat and the nyama was well cooked with a touch of kachumbari on the side. I enjoyed it as I tried different types of beers. The ambiance is just so nice and chilled you drink a beer and forget your problems. The bartenders are interactive and swift. Within a flash and you have your drink in your hand. Man, I enjoyed the whole evening and I’ll surely return.
It was an incredible experience. The steak I ordered was cooked to perfection. The service was amazing. And above all else, I felt perfectly safe and comfortable dining there since they observed Covid-Operation guidelines to the tee. I guarantee you will have a fantastic experience, especially if your waiter is Reagan. Indeed, despite noticing it was a busy evening he attended to us and gave us very efficient service. I was amazed by the decor and ambiance of the place so beautiful. I loved the lighting, the placements of the sits, the different type of sits and spots. Ugh, it was such a beauty especially coming in at night. My expectations were surpassed and I had the chance to see them do a birthday dinner and I must say that I’m having thoughts of doing it here as well. Everything was well organized and very well-orchestrated. Honestly, whether you come here alone or on a date or with your friends, I guarantee that you’ll have a fantastic evening.
Just within Two Rivers Mall, Aldar Restaurant is a beautiful place with a well-decorated interior and inviting scents. I was immediately ushered and showed to my table and the waiter took my order immediately. This place has different cuisines so take your time to look through their menus and when you’re good you just order and in a few minutes, you have your meal. The food was a mixture of Lebanese and Indian. I found them equally delicious especially the fish curry and the chicken curry. They were mouth-watering and they would also go well with the Indian masala. The food was really good and it’s within an affordable range and it’s in large servings. The staff were really nice and always smiling and ready for anything that you want. He recommended the food I ate and I say that I wasn’t disappointed. I surely will return over and over again.
