I went for a milkshake on a Friday afternoon/evening. The place looks nice with a minimalist and clean finish. However,my partner and I were the only patrons- pretty unusual, I thought. The waitress was also very stiff and the staff kept stealing glances at us as though to suggest we were keeping them and they wanted to close down for the day. There were also no patries available except some very hard-looking croissants. Very disappointing.
I tried the Risotto as it was recommended by the waiter. Too big a portion and too monotonous. A side or a garnish or something was needed. Not just a plate load of rice. The ambience bothers me. I kept looking for a more open space to sit but inside was claustrophobic. The one in the passage outside was tolerable.
The food was excellent, but the service was rather disappointing. We waited 45 minutes to get the starters and we had to keep on reminding waiters. None of them felt responsible for the table. A little distasteful detail happened at the end, when we asked the waiter to give us change for a note of Kshs 1000 so that we would leave a tip. She brought back two notes of Kshs 500. We left no tip.
