We were tired and hungry following a delayed flight and missing our connection. The waitress was very attentive and looked after us really well despite this being late at night. We had delicious wrap sandwiches, excellent coffee and a glass of wine. So pleased that there is somewhere decent in this airport now.

Delicious food and friendly contest. Fine dining and friendly restaurant where is possible to test international and local food at a quite reasonable price. We had a delicious dinner with my husband and tested alloumi cheese.

We had a 3 hour wait until our flight but we knew we were eating at Java House. The food is fresh and made to order. Nothing is sitting under lights. The service was excellent and we were not disappointed. The next time I am in stuck at Kenyatta Airport, I will stop by Java House for food and coffee.

As you arrive, the waitresses smartly dressed with a warm smile, welcomes you with a cup of coffee, which tastes great. The workers are welcoming and very concerned about your comfort. The locally made juice is fresh and breath-taking. But the food is very spicy and may not work well for someone with food allergies. The view is great, the... More

When you visit Java ain't JKIA, just take coffee, tea and orange juice. Avoid the foods and other solids. It's not fun queueing to use the aircraft toilet. They also do not spray against cockroaches.

This is perhaps the busiest of the Java restaurants . And it is at a premier location. As much as the food is average it needs to be better. The place needs an uplift in decor and the menu is a little boring. !!!

You get the most sinful chocolate milkshake out there.Also the tea and coffee made with syrup of cinamon and other spices should be tried.

I had a five hour layover and was very happy to find the Simba Lounge. For $50 USD, I was able to have a shower, towels and toiletries supplies, eat a nice dinner, relax in a large lounge area and watch some football. On one of my explorations of the area, I discovered a quiet room which I wish I... More

The service is slow and it can get pretty crowded but this is the best option for food in the airport. They had a diverse menu from chips masala, to Samosa, to Pork spare tips, to Guacamole bacon cheeseburger, to shakes. The food was fine and they also offer wine and beer.
