Sat at Java Gigiri for ten minutes on a Sunday afternoon watching the waiters and waitresses pass by our table until I had to go and get menus myself after which a waiter then came to our table and took my order. The food was great but the service fell short of what I expected.

Java's always an easy place to go to wherever they're located. The ambience, the service, the food, always a winner! But the flies at Java Gigiri, too much!!! Been there several times as it's the closest one to where I live. Please fix that. Else, see you again soon!

Java House has the best chocolate cake I have ever had, so good that even someone who doesn't usually love chocolate cake can't get enough!

I'm no coffee snob, but the coffee they served me was horrible. And the food was so-so at best, not good value or close for the prices they charge. You're better off w. a Thai chicken pie at Nakumatt for 150.

Visited with some friends after shopping at TRM, the food was great and on budget for all of but it was late. Funny thing happened though, after giving the waitress our orders she got us desserts before even the starters

I have been at Java House many times at many locations in Nairobi. It was always a good service, great coffee and the snacks were tasty and reasonably priced. Coffee around 200-300 KES sandwiches from 500-600KES It is highly recommended for everybody.

You need your brew then look no further - whether to grab a quick cuppa with friends or colleagues or a on the go cuppa, this is the place to get it. Fresh and delicious

We visited this Java House location because most of the 9 people in our group were craving burgers and fries. The service was friendly, efficient and professional. We had 7 different checks and our server Dominic was an absolute rockstar. I had the Double-Double with a salad and it was delish. I also ordered my go to dink in Nairobi,... More
