The milkshakes are to return for... The serving are huge and satisfying. We had a chicken and beef burgers with fries an stir fried vegis. Good tasty and feeling. Service slightly lacking. Only two waiters running around for all tables.

One of the best coffee spots I know with great coffee and good food. But y'all should change the menu and try different dishes like pasta. Ive tasted everything on the menu except pork for obvious reasons.

Java has always been my place of meeting since 2001 when I first went to java at ngong Rd, what else would you long for than being at Java. I love the service to friendly waiters and internet. I just love the food

We eat at Java house often. Their food is always good and the coffee is amazing! If you are looking for American style food, this is the place to eat. There are many locations throughout Kenya.
