Over the years, we have eaten at the Cedars Restaurant Nairobi many times. The food is always so fresh, packed full of flavour, and served with flourish & grace. Very spicy, but not necessarily very hot. We love it.
A big issue is parking. The parking area is just too small. On street parking is on a very busy road -- makes me concerned about my car (they do have security personnel though)
I was torn between a 3 or 4 star rating for this restaurant. Let me start with the positives:
- The best area for kids under 10 to play in Nairobi (trust me, I've looked). Fantastic permanent jungle gym on rubberized tiles, so even after rain, no muddy feet. On weekends they have a jumping castle as well.
- Menu is simple enough and can cater to kids and adults alike.
- Very overpriced. I usually order a shish taouk meal for my kids to share. It has 6 decent size hunks of chicken breast taken off a skewer and a serving of chips. It's Ksh 1200 ($15)!
This is pretty much my only issue, as the service is ok. I never go there in a rush anyway and can easily spend 2-3 hours happily with my kids.
If you've got a toddler, it's money well spent, as it's a fantastic place to play!
