As some of my followers may remember, I celebrated my birthday a little while ago. We decided to go to INTI and I decided to do a little review of it. The main reason I wanted to review it is because it’s thought to be one of the most luxurious and expensive restaurants in Kenya. Even though we didn’t eat there (because it’s crazy expensive) we did have some drinks which I want to review. So here are is my honest INTI review.
It’s a really beautiful place, there’s no denying that. I made a little YouTube short where you can see the sunset we saw from the restaurant. It’s clean, has a lovely view, well decorated and just beautiful all around. I think going during sunset made everything even more beautiful. Also, the lighting was on point and I literally looked airbrushed even though I wasn’t.
The drinks were amazing. Like some of the best drinks I’ve ever had. I had the Strawberry Sake-tini and later the Matcha After Eight. They were both so good, I would highly recommend them.
So here is where I had the problem. I felt like their service was not great. Which I actually expected because I went to another restaurant with the same owners and it was one of the worst experiences I’ve had. Anyway, as I mentioned we had just gone for drinks. I had reserved the table online and we were led to a table when we arrived.
After we ordered our drinks, our waitress asked us if we wanted to order food and we said we weren’t sure because we really weren’t sure. She came back after a while to ask again and we said we’re okay with just the drinks. She seemed irritated and was like “this section is only for people that are ordering food.” And I was thinking, I was I supposed to know that? Like this is my first time here and when you make the reservation there is no option for picking a specific table. If this was the case why not ask us at the door and give us the table accordingly? My sister mentioned we didn’t know this since this was our first time here and waitress just kind of stared at us as though it’s our fault…
We eventually told her we don’t mind moving to the drinks only section and moved. But the experience kind of sucked. Like that was super rude and if this is the rule you should tell customers from the start. So yeah, I won’t be going back there. Their service sucks for the overpriced food and okay priced drinks. Not worth it for me, I would rather go somewhere that I can sit properly at and enjoy myself. Like Boho Eatery or Shamba Cafe.
Overall the experience was fine but it was really tainted by the way it ended with us having to move mid-drink. I was disappointed that such an expensive place would have such crap service. But again, that seems to be the case with all their restaurants so I wasn’t surprised. As I mentioned, I would definitely not go back. Maybe just for pictures… Kidding, I’ll be going somewhere new next even. Hopefully, now owned by the same people.
