Kenobi offers an exceptional cocktail list and an extensive range of exclusive champagnes including Asian Fusion Fizz (the cocktail includes a secret spice), Strong & Cold (a mint refreshment with subtle strength), Australian Iced Tea (Kenobi’s take on the Long Island Iced Tea) and a food menu is available for lunch, dinner and function catering. The menu is a cross between traditional Thai and Indonesian cuisine with South East Asian influences including vegetarian cigars and BBQ beef ribs.

Kenobi also has its own cinema with a huge retractable screen which plays classic and current hit movies during the week; plus a popcorn machine which dispenses various flavors to ensure you enjoy a total movie experience.
