Urban CoffeeLenana Road, Kilimani, Nairobi
I had the chicken stir fry with potatoe wedges, salad and a cup of masala tea. The presentation was good. The stir fry was tasty, but was a tad salty. I would've wished for a more generous serving of salad. I enjoyed my meal. The tea was 'traditionally' made i.e. boiled well, not too milky, with a taste of masala..just the way i like it. My friend had the Urban burger with fries and salad and an oreo milkshake. Presentation was ok. The first thing my friend said was that the burger was small. She enjoyed her meal though. The milkshake was refreshing..full of crushed oreos. Our waitress Ruth was very friendly and helpful with her recommendations. She gave us good service. At the end of our meal we each got a white forest cake to take home for free!
The coffee is very low quality and overpriced. The take away cups are smaller than most coffee shops in town .The pastry is bland. The sitting area gets smoky and smelly since the kitchen does not have a ventilation system. Food is very oily. Overall, it is not value for money.
The ambiance is good for a quiet meal but I can't say so much for the food. I asked for samosas and they were too oily and overly spiced and when I opted for a cake instead it was gooey and didn't taste fresh at all. I wouldn't go back unless I just want to have a drink I don't think you can massacre that.
The burgers at urban place are quite tasty.. i must say the variety present one will definitely find something they love.... If you love the sweet and savoury combination in your burger flavours you absolutely will adore some of the choices they have!
I love their breakfast, especially their pancakes. I also love their lunch offerings such as the chicken wing and their sandwiches. They do need to improve on their delivery service as they often often one thing or another. At times it cutlery, other times it the butter, etc. I always eat there. A good place to also meet up friends for coffee to catch up.
