Jiweke TavernKibera Rd, Off Ngong Rd, Ngong Rd, Nairobi
Coming back to this place after a few months, the renovations was totally worth it. They now have heaters that's perfect especially when you dine there in the evening. We decided to have the platter cause it has variety of meat which was amazing with fries. Our waitress was very attentive and served us on time. The food was of good quality and quantity.
I have been at Jiweke Tavern more than twice and each time I find a new reason to fall in love with it. Talk about the music played on the background, the friendliness of the waiters and waitresses and to sum it up, the food. If you are looking for a good place to relax and have some fun, this is the place for you!
Great place to have a party with friends and family. At the gate you are warmly welcomed by the askaris, then the ever smiling and friendly waitresses/waiters. Service is good. We had some drinks with friends and i must say thanks to Cate who welcomed and took us round before offering us a place to relax as she served us. Thanks Cate for making me take Jiweke tavern as my eat-out place. We will surely come back again and again
Now i wanted to like this place. Heard good things about it. So organised a birthday party for my daughter here. The food was late but it was good. They have a trampoline and bouncing castle that kept the kids busy. I always say you can have a shitty product to sell, but if your service is on point it will not matter. The wait staff here are terrible. All with the exception of Kevin. I had booked the gazebo and they had set up inside. I had a not so pleasant exchange with one of the wait staff regarding this. They were also to sing for my daughter - as any good restaurant would. But despite Kevin's best efforts to round up this colleagues, they all pretended to be busy, and others disappeared to the bar area where they sat near the counter just watching. I overhear one flatly saying that she cannot and will not sign as it was not her work. The manager just looked on helplessly. With service like this, i can never go back even though the food was ok. If i had a restaurant, i would poach Kevin. The other employees need a serious lesson in customer service.
The location and set up is great. The food however wasn't as good as promised. The portions were tiny, we had to order extra plates. we wanted a quiet table far from the bar and got one, though I think there had been a party before we arrived and the floor was littered. Not a good sight at dinner.
