Really impressive ! I have been not only impressed by the beauty of the place, but also by the quality of the food and drinks. The smoothies and shakes are just crazy good, and the food is really excellent. I went twice there and I...particularly liked their burgers. Excellent place for a lunch during working days.More

This a great spot for casual dining with family and friends. We had the honey glazed chicken wings with fries and plantains. The food was delicious and the portion was large. Best chicken, I have had in a while. Cons -The guacamole and masala fries...were subpar. The guacamole was watery and tasteless. The masala fries were not rusty and too soft. -The service was average. Our waiter came to our table only once to check if everything was fine. I asked another waiter to bring me some ice and he seemed irritated. He did bring the ice and he didn’t say a word. -You have to buy water. I wish they would offer free water. - They brought my aunt hot herbal tea instead of cold. The waiter wouldn’t return it even though she said it was not what she wanted and she hadn’t touched it. Total expense for three people was Ksh 7,800More

Hi Moses, I’m not the right person to ask for a job as I’m not holding any positions there. You can reach them and ask. Hope they’ll have a vacancy.
