Toptable Review: City Star Restaurant
Our Toptable review for this week is focused on City Star Restaurant . For most Nairobians looking for good ambiance and finger-licking meals City Star Restaurant is the place to be. Located at the heart of the CBD, City Star Restaurant is not only convenient but easily accessible. Most revelers will remember a once top notch town pub;- Ibiza, and wonder what happened to it. Ibiza is now home to City Star Restaurant, the restaurant that is winning the hearts of Nairobi city residents due to its excellent food and impeccable service.
Area254 visited City Star last week and to our pleasant surprise we were not disappointed. We were very impressed by the very good service (from the welcoming lady to the waiters) and the food. Their menu was comprehensive with both local and exotic cuisines and their prices pocket friendly.
I have had great experiences in many posh restaurants around the world but what comes first in my pre-qualification list of requirements is hygiene. You can say that when it comes to my
food and the table, I am one a client who is not easy to please. However, for the professional City Star staff, pleasing me was a piece of cake, so to speak.
This month has been chilly especially in the morning hours and Friday was no exception. I visited City Star Restaurant for breakfast and as you may have guessed visiting the restrooms on such a chilly morning is inevitable. I was very impressed by the state of their restrooms: spic and span.
The interior décor is exotic. The furniture too is classy and comfortable; royal-looking leather seats and stylish table sets. I noticed that they served my lemon tea with honey but gave me the option of sugar as well. I obviously went for honey which I gladly discovered was pure and natural.
That I showed up later for lunch was not surprising. The waiter smiling shyly gave me a warm welcome keenly remembering me. I admitted that I liked their food and that I was going to explore their main meals. I forgot to mention that City Star specializes on Somali food. The Somali meals are spicy and tasty but above all I must say that these guys are generous with their portions. No one needs a “saucer (additional portion to fill one up)” with these generous quantities at City Star.
As for family outings this is the place to be. Lovers will also find this a good place to enjoy coffee or a tasty meal. The restaurant does not sell alcoholic drinks and is build on solid honesty and a strong religious foundation. The saying that “cleanliness is next to godliness” a theme painted all over City Star Restaurant.
