We stopped here on a Monday night for dinner, and the place was half full, which we took as a good sign. Between the 4 of us, we ordered the eggplant, the mutton (I forgot which one, the most popular apparently), spinach, and chicken tikka curry, with a basket of garlic naan. All in all, a solid meal. The mutton... More

Open house has never seized to disappoint as the food is of good quality and if one wants a wholesome Indian curry, this is the place to dine. The service is friendly and the atmosphere is okay.

The curry was really, really good. Five of us shared various curries, breads and rice dishes and everything was fantastic. Not too fatty and the medium heat we went for was pretty tame. Not too expensive either. The service was good as well. The area just outside the restaurant looks a bit shaky - dark and some street kids hanging... More

Hi, You could perhaps order a turbo nan to spice things up in case you find you've ordered a spice level too low. We usually have security out front and we ensure that they are more vigilant. have a great day, VP More

Venue While I have been going to this restaurant's two venues for years, the Westlands venue is 5 minutes from home so I tend to frequent it more. It is decidedly drab with typical curry house decor. The exterior looks like a jailhouse entrance so clearly no effort is made on decor. The Karen venue is much more attractive. Food... More

While this place does not have the decor, ambiance and an Indian sounding name to match another illustrious Indian restaurant in Nairobi, it certainly has the better food. While not the same as a home cooked Indian meal, it comes very close.

I have run out of words for this place. Excellent value for money. You will not go wrong if you want Indian food. From the starters to the desserts all excellent choices. All the staff and management are ever friendly.

Even do the installations, decor and atmosphere of the restaurant are average, the service and excellent quality and diversity of the dishes make up for that. I dined here with friends and tried from all plates and no complaints, everything was just delicious.

I make a point of going to this restaurant at least once on every trip to Nairobi. The curries are always very good and you can be assured it will taste the same as the last time you ate there. Prices are reasonable and service attentive.
