BR Restaurant (Before)Located in the heart of the Island, Blue Room is Mombasa's most famous landmark restaurant. Blue Room, made famous for its bhajias, tea and BR ice cream, was established in 1952. It began as a small fast food restaurant. 10 years later, in 1962, Blue Room began manufacturing ice cream and started an ice cream parlour and ice cream manufacturing plant beside the restaurant. Through the years, Blue Room underwent numerous minor expansions and renovations. But in 1992 the whole site was practically rebuilt.
Before 1992, the seating capacity was roughly 40 people. Today it seats over 140 people, making it one of the largest restaurants in the city.
BR Restaurant (New)In April 2001, a Cyber Café was introduced at the main location on Haile Selassie Road, offering Internet Access, MultiPlayer Gaming, Photocopying, fax and other such services.
Blue Room has been family owned and operated for over half a century now. It has become the meeting place in town. The Place is frequented by tourists and of course local residents, some of whom you can see here every day - sometimes a couple times a day!
The most wonderful aspect of running a family restaurant is that we get to make countless friendships that we have developed with so many of our customers throughout the years. We thank you for your patronage and we hope to be able to continue to provide you with the quality and service you expect from us in the years to come!
