Excellent Indian restaurant

Excellent food and service, highly recommended. Prices are relatively high though not as high as in the more famous Indian restaurant opposite. One of our favorites in Nairobi.

What a treat to find Open House in the Karen section of Nairobi. Located on the first floor of Crossroads Mall, it has a very welcoming ambiance, timely service, reasonable prices and great food. I am not a connoisseur of Indian restaurants, but thoroughly enjoy dining at this one.

Had a wonderful meal with plenty of great choices on the menu. Every dish we ordered was tasty and well prepared and the service was impeccable. However, the white house wine I ordered by the glass was corked and when I asked for another glass from a new bottle, the taste was unfortunately the same.

The food at Open House Westlands is one of the best Indian you may get in Nairobi. The service is not impressing, the atmosphere is more like a waiting hall at a railway station, very noisy.

I've been here a couple of times (for romantic dinners and also with my girlfriends) and it never disappoints! From the delectable mango lassi to the sumptuous curries and butter naan...we always have a great time. Perfect for dinner for couples, a group of friends or business. Usually packed so one may have to wait for seating but its definitely... More

I was in Open House Restaurant on 6th February 2015 with a team of friends for lunch. I was particularly thrilled by the serenity of the environment, the quality of the lunch and the warmth with which the waiters discharged their duties. It was indeed a very fulfilling experience. I'll like to visit the Open House Restaurant again the next... More

Had dinner here with a friend of Indian heritage ( they open at about 4 to 5 pm for dinner). We sat upstairs, the tables are very squashed together. Anyway the food was generally very good and would definitely recommend Open house for good Indian food.
