Java House is a welcome refuge for American travelers. I have been eating here since there was only one location downtown Nairobi. Now, Java House has expanded throughout much of Kenya. A plate of chicken quesadillas (don't forget the guac!) makes all the fried "yard...More

Java House restaurants are all over Nairobi, so if you have been to one, you know what to expect. A good variety of food, moderately priced, with a good selection. It is a very popular place at the JKI Airport.
