I have been to other indian restaurants in Nairobi but the Open House was by far the best from my experiences. The food was great and well presented. The service was exceptional with the Manager himself checking on us every 20 minutes or so. Quite relaxed atmosphere where one can enjoy their meal with a nice conversation without getting rowdy....

Open house is an excellent alternative to other indian restaurants. They do both beg and non veg, and both are equally tasty! The service is prompt and always with a smile! Well done.

I went again to Open House and found the food and services to be excellent. I was delighted to see that my date and I were the only non Indians there. The location is also very convenient.

It is a destination for good indian food. Some dishes are unique and a treat to cherish. Although I have been a few times but always experienced the same quality and taste at a fairly reasonable prices.

Whenever anyone mentions Indian food in Nairobi, eventually the name Open House will come up.For me and other expats there is none better. Wide range of food, cooked to your desired level of heat. From the starters, through the mains, to the desserts, lots of choices, all cooked to ensure satisfaction of the taste buds. Don't expect any cocktails though,... More

I look forward to going any time I'm near... Truly superior Indian food. I used to go to Haandi across the street in Westlands but I haven't been back since I was introduced to Open House. You can't go wrong.
