Corner Affair Steak HouseRaphta Rd, Westlands, Nairobi
I went there to meet friends for lunch on 12th March and it turned out to be a disappointment. On arrival we ordered a Vanilla shake and a Strawberry shake but they didn't have it. Then for our starter we wanted chicken wings - not available. In fact the only chicken related item you could order was a whole chicken. For our entree we asked for steak fillet. Not available. At this time, we figured it was easier to ask the waiter what was available and then choose from that rather than select from the menu. Other than one person who asked for a well done steak, everyone else asked for medium-well. They were all well done and tough as nails. Definitely a disappointment.
Well the ambience is good, close proximity to where I live. Haven't been since the renaming + new menu so my craving for a good steak landed me there. the waitress had no knowledge of the meals/ menu and had to do a lot of back and forth to the kitchen to inquire. Eventually settled for the New York strip medium .... The steak came well done and tough as leather so I returned it only to be told it was the last portion so only available steak was the fillet. Now I'd stated that I want a fatty steak and they propose fillet? Anyway so no rump, and no more New York strip on a Saturday night at 9pm. So they offered me a T bone which wasn't quite on the menu which I had and it was okay. I had it with some mashed potatoes supposedly with garlic and chives. Couldn't taste the garlic, food was bland and under seasoned. All in all what a horrible experience for an expensive meal at that. And oh, when your glass is empty no body cares to ask if you need another drink and this I noted happened to all that were sat outside with me.
Remember to carry a sweater if you going at night. Otherwise, really cool place.
The new menu and concept is amazing! I would definitely recommend it. Great cuts of meat, barbequed to perfection either on the bbq spit or in a tandoor (Indian oven), piping hot pizzas, direct from the clay oven, great daily offers and good selection of wines and spirits. Ample garden area for the kids to play as well.
Went for dinner, no reservations necessary . Food is great and pricey. Service, they could have done better. The ambiance and tranquility is of a class of its own. Intimate and chic. Great Value and Great experience.
