It's St Patrick's Day everyday!

4.6/ 5

My friends and I decided to visit The Tav on a Wednesday evening right after we got off from school. The restaurant is about 30 minutes away from our school on Thika Road and about 10 minutes from the CBD. Located in Westlands area, the first thing you will notice is the green interior. At first I thought that they were certainly committed to ensuring their patrons have the utmost Irish experience. My conclusion when I left was that they are just Irish enough for Nairobi, but a true Irishman would’ve called their bluff. In Irish fashion, beer is served in plenty and pitchers are sold at affordable rates. The set-up is airy, with high ceilings and one side of the bar being open with a view of the parking lot and the highway. There is ample free parking provided on the grounds. The Tav is located on the ground floor of a small mall with other businesses. When we walked in, a waiter ushered us in and showed us to out table. The tables are wooden with stools although there are is a comfortable booth-like sitting area as well. We were a party of four so we sat in one of the booths. The bar has a DJ occasionally playing his set in the evenings. I guess that was as Irish as it got – the decor and the beer. We ordered a burger and fries each and a round of cocktails. The restaurant however does not have bathrooms and one is supposed to use the bathrooms located in the mall. The place is quite popular and gets quite crowded in the evenings as locals pass by to have a polite drink and enjoy the music. Our food took quite a while to arrive but the drinks had been served prior so we were enjoying those as we waited. The food was great and I daresay, worth the wait. We left immediately we finished our food and paid the bill since it was a school-night but I would definitely go back on a weekend to enjoy the music and great food.

Bringing Dublin to you.

3.8/ 5

The Tav is an Irish Pub located in The Mirage, Chiromo Road, Westlands. It also doubles as a restuarant and attempts to allow you to get a full Dublin experience right here in Kenya. It has a terrace and indoor section for a quiet dine in. The terrace is usually loud on most days and very open I felt it didn’t offer a lot of privacy. On the bright side, if a wild evening is what you’re aiming for then YES! I’ve gone there twice, once for Karaoke with a couple of friends and on the other occasion for lunch.

The karaoke was very exciting, the host was quite lively, and would definitely recommend it if you and a couple of friends want to go indulge yourself in some laid-back fun. They had happy hour at fair prices so the drinks never ran out. We had Long Island cocktails which were around 900kshs. The second time we went to grab their business lunch deal. It’s a budget deal and for 600 we got a starter and a main meal. The soup was just alright, the rice and chicken stew were also tasty: just worth the money we spent. One thing I liked about The Tav was the wall graffiti and the aesthetic of the whole inner space. Very captivating.
