Came in for the burger fest on Wednesday and I did not regret the experience at all. Aside from the first waiter getting our food order wrong everything else went splendidly. It was my 3rd visit to the restaurant and by far the best out of the 3!!

Just serene! The pork chops are to die for. Best service i've received so far in Nairobi. Definitely top on my list

I love this restaurant so much. The location is amazing...tucked away in a serene location. I've had a chance to try the lamb and pork chops and both were nothing but amazing! Service is great. This is a regular for me!

It was about time I kicked About Thyme out of my bucket list :) My dear friend and I had a lovely lunch experience during the Nairobi Restaurant Week 2017 :) The hot Sunday afternoon was quickly gone once we got there. The ambiance really stands out with its breathtaking combination of nature and art! The service was also great and I loved the way the waitstaff would strategically station themselves to ensure no one had a had time searching frantically when they were ready to order (very hard to see this anymore). Being the last day of NRW2017, we made sure that we tried their renowned spicy chicken rigatoni tossed in a spicy tomato concasse with chicken strips. Let's just say, we were not disappointed! It was spicy, but not too much that one can't enjoy. Plus, the side salad helps. For dessert, we both had the caramelised bread and butter pudding - served hot with custard & the peanut butter ice-cream pie - drizzled with chocolate fudge sauce (good for sweet tooth cravings). Their house wine is also to die for! Definitely going back!

I really enjoyed going to this restaurant , the food and desserts here are really good. The ambiance and service was just perfect. We enjoyed our food on the top deck, and had our desserts and coffee in the tents downstairs. It was very relaxing. Look forward to going back there again.

The food was delicious, with the right amount of seasoning and good portions of quality food. The place itself is very quaint and the staff was attentive but not intrusive. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Tucked away in a serene corner, we enter About Thyme, greeted by a cool breeze on a hot Sunday afternoon. My date and I managed to secure a table indoors; with no reservation. Soft oldies and jazz, coupled with the ambiance took us away. The service is impecable and they were gracious enough to explain the various dishes available. Indulged on free cocktail as we chatted away. We both had Tuna tar tar and avocado as our starters. Every bite was an exhilarating experience. That's not it; the mains were beyond exemplary. Each bite as tantalising as the one before. Eventually, my last bite; I was sad the food was over! :( We finally had some dessert and took a brisk stroll outside after our meal. Beautiful and lush. Can't wait to visit once more for even more!
