Much better than the overrated Haandi. The food is excellent and the atmosphere good. The restaurant is in a small lane and the door is a bit inconspicuous

Since the restaurant has opened I have not seen empty tables in this place whether it's a weekday or weekend. I have realized that the reason behind this is their consistent quality and taste.. If u wanna have good Indian food in Nairobi then just go blindly to open house and satisfy your tastebuds..

Been visiting Open House for years, and now that they're at a more central location it's even easier to get to. Food is always great, and service is efficient without being intrusive.

A friend brought me here sometime back and the first thing I noticed was how hidden it was on the ground floor in the back of a building surrounded by a rail fence you would have to know where you're going cos its not very conspicuous. Walking in there was a very cosy atmosphere, very subtle decor and a sense... More

If you're not familiar with authentic north lndian cuisine, you may actually like it here. Not me. A complete dissapointment in terms of food. Ambience and service is good. Perhaps they should consider bringing in a good north Indian chef from Delhi or Dehradun or Noida or Gurgaon...one who gets the flavours right. And then this could be a superb... More

Very good service from the waiters. The butter chicken is definitely a class above most of the Indian restaurants in Nairobi. Fairly priced

From the warm welcome at the door and attentive but not intrusive waiters to the excellent food, this must be the best Indian restaurant in Nairobi. Far better than Haandi. The proof to me was that we were the only non Indian people in the restaurant. We ordered hot curries but the flavours still came rushing through. This is the... More

Romali roti is the real deal. Not as thin as india, but very close to it. It's very hard to find good romali roti outside of india. So, im very impressed. Paneer chilly fry is really good indeed. The special ginger chicken wings can use a sauce, but the batter around the chicken is just perfect. The fried ginger sticks... More

I have lived for some years in South Asia and the food at Open House is every bit as good as you'll get in Mumbai or Delhi. Most of your fellow diners will be from the local Asian community, who obviously know a good thing. I had superb prawns, and of course Tusker beer.
