During my five day stay in Nairobi on our last night we visited Open House Restaurant. Based on the address given it was a little difficult to find. The ambiance is very nice and welcoming when entering. We didn't have a long wait before asking for our drinks and appetizers. The waiter was very helpful and made sure to close... More

This restaurant, based in Westlands, by far serves awesome Indian cuisine and I will highly recommend it to anyone wishing to enjoy Indian cuisine at its best. My aunt loves dining here and their head chef will always go out of his way to please her and concoct dishes not listed in the menu. I so enjoyed dining here

What a gem in a busy part of Nairobi! The appeal of Open House is not in the décor, but in the absolutely fabulous food. We always order several dishes and share them family style. Favorite dishes include butter chicken, palak paneer, and ginger fried prawns. As other reviewers have noted, it’s smart to get a reservation, as we normally... More

An above average experience. Customer turnout is massive, meaning the quality standards are always adhered to. Service is always quick and the prices are relatively standard for restaurants in the upmarket and central business districts. Popular with local and foreign clientele. I recommend the Tandoori paneer.

Recommended by local friends and colleagues, a large group of us have been twice. Humming and very popular, booking needed as it is always very full. Clearly a local hotspot. Huge selection of Indian cuisines and great friendly service. Good cold beers and wine selection.
