Located on Eldama Ravine Rd, in Westlands, About Thyme has become famous over the years for the serene, leafy setting it offers and the eclectic menu it has. Here you can find dishes from all over the world. The best part is that they are expertly prepared and presented to you. You can even find vegetarian dishes.
