Java House at Jomo Kenyatta Airport near gate 14 is a convenient and busy place. Often difficult to find a free table. Meals are average, and priced typically for an airport. I would still enjoy a meal here if it wasn’t for an recurring annoyance....More

Nice place to kill time while waiting for your flight. Nice food, fast and quick. Coffee and desserts are good. Java House is all over the country. So everyone are familiar with the restaurant.

This is the place to stop. If you're in a hurry to catch a plane though, definitely go to the self-service counter. Sitting at a table (if you can find one), the service will be incredibly slow. The coffee is always great; we buy a...More

Of all the javas, this is the worst. Slow servvice-waiters running around without attending to customers. Coffee is watery (i like mine creamy) compared to other javas. Service needs to be improved!

The Java House location in JKIA is convenient for those flying out that might want to purchase some coffee beans or snacks to go, but the service was super slow. I was there during the breakfast hour and many people were rushing to make flights,...More

Kenyan coffee is great and I always enjoy a good cup Parmesan at the airport. Bit overpriced but that's the deal i suppose.

Has the same menu as the one you find in town. Has lot of seating options and its a nice place to hangout before taking flight out of Terminal 1A.

The staff are good, however, are always stressed, especially in the early morning. I've eaten there many times and find it to be hit and miss with the food. Probably a highly profitable outlet, and there's little competition, but management needs to invest a bit...More
