I’ve been to this place several times and enjoyed it every single time. The food here is delicious, the staff is really friendly, the interiors and decor is really cute and they have several books you could read and many board games that you could enjoy with your friends and family

I definitely need a whack on the head because I've been to these place umpteen number of times yet I haven't managed to write a review thanks to my procrastination.

My first visit was actually a disappointment that I promised not to visit the place again mainly because they didn't give me the board games when I requested and the food took way too long.

But I'm glad I gave them other chance because since the second visit I've never looked back and this place had become my regular hangout spot. A big cheer for Arun who made me change my opinion on my second visit and another cheer for Rhea. Both being my favorite servers there.

The Ambience is pretty laid back and the best thing is for large groups they have these long tables so you can all happily sit together. They even have couches and high tables. They don't have wifi because they believe in the policy of disconnect to reconnect which is pretty cool.

For the drinks my all time favorite has to be their watermelon mojito, the chocolate milkshake was average, the freakshake was an overload of chocolate, lots of elements and best to share.

Now for the food I have no idea where to start because I've tried pretty much everything and didn't have any complaints.

My all time favorites are the Shepherds Pie, chicken BBQ steak, the chicken Mac and cheese, sausage plate actually there's quite a bit. There are a lot of fans of the flakes and flames although I wasn't wowed as much. Their Creme Brulee is also pretty cool because they blow-torch it at the table.

Finally the prices are pretty reasonable and the quantity is pretty good too which is why it is a hit amongst students. They do have games like taboo, jenga, scrabble, chess, cards and monopoly.

Overall a great place to chill.

This place is really a hidden economical gem. Easy parking, interesting interiors and a lot of board games make it a favourite. Initially I went there to specifically try their monster shake, and I wasn't disappointed one bit. Value for money, thick, right amount of chocolate, looks monstrous and isn't messy also. Their cheese fries are amazing as well. The quesadilla was average, because the sour cream had gone bad and neither did I like the filling. Could have a little more flavour to the chicken. The chilli cheese fries are good in its own (sprinkled with chilli flakes), could be served with a dipping sauce/sour cream, because it can get dry. The white sauce alfredo pasta is the usual, not amazing, not too bad.

Downtown Café opened up recently in Karama and there was a lot of hype about its inauguration on the radio and on social media, namely Facebook, where they were giving away discount codes for a meal at their newly opened branch as a part of their promotion.

The look and feel inside this cafe is just amazing! It’s got an overall warm cozy feel with the wooden panelling all around and dark furniture. We also really liked the decor on the walls and layout. What makes this place even warmer is the fact that it’s tucked away from the main road, thus making it a warm snug little corner for those quiet intimate meetings! They have a really cute board put up for all their customers to post a message on sticky notes for the Downtown team and generally for them to express their thoughts about the café.
Also, they have a bunch of board games that can be used by the customers for how ever long they want as they dine.

Bite Board:

Shrimp Basket: The Shrimp basket was basically deep fried bread crumb covered shrimps, which we found were only average. The quantity was surely good. So was the presentation. They were served as small balls, covered with bread crumbs and filled into two small sweet biscuit cups, along with a serving of tartar sauce. However, the balls were too crunchy and wasn’t soft and tender like we would have expected it to be. Also, we didn’t quite understand why the biscuit cups were paired with the fried Prawns, because they don’t particularly go well together. However on its own, the biscuit cups were quite tasty, would have paired well rather with a hot cup of tea.

BBQ Chicken Wings: These chicken wings were literally “wing” pieces, which we found rather funny! Anyhoo, we decided to dig right into it because they looked divine. The taste though didn’t turn out to be as expected because it had a strong garlic taste and had too much pepper. However when it came to presentation, it was served with garlic bread, and layered on top with honey glaze and garnish which looked superb!

We also ordered for one coffee which was good.

At the end of our meal we were given a complimentary pastry by the manager, which we obviously devoured!

The servers and manager were amazing. We absolutely loved their warm welcome and happy vibes! A shout out to the servers for being so wonderfully courteous.

For the entire experience, definitely worth the money and surely deserves another visit.

We are definitely going to try out the other amazing treasures on their menu? YES! They have Freakshakes on their menu here so that is definitely on our hit list!

A nice little place away from the hustle and bustle of karama. Had the pink sauce pasta and cheesy chilli fries.
Loved them both. Very economical place for the quantity and quality they serve.
Service was also pretty decent.
Overall would definitely return here.
