Burger Dome closes doors after 15 years

The owner of Burger Dome Restaurant has filed a notice to dissolve the company, marking the end of one of Nairobi’s popular eateries that has been in operation for more than 15 years.

The Registrar of Companies has given a notice of Burger Dome’s intended dissolution, inviting persons who have any claims on the business to come forward.

Burger Dome, which was located on Kimathi Street in the Old Mutual building, closed down the outlet in November.

The space it occupied has been taken over by Hot Dishes restaurant, an upcoming African-themed restaurant chain.


“It is notified that at the expiration of three months the company shall be dissolved,” the notice reads in part.

Burger Dome sold burgers, ice cream and other fast foods.

The restaurants’ appeal was heightened by an in-house cyber café that was regularly frequented before the arrival of a fibre optic network that raised Internet penetration in the country.

Ownership of the restaurant has changed at least four times in the past decade alone.

Previous owners have more or less maintained the restaurant’s feel – including its name — with one of the major changes happening in 2012 when a family business bought the place and made the restaurant’s menu halal – meaning its food and drinks complied with Islamic laws.
