We went for a family meal, it looked a bit random from outside, bit of a concrete building But inside the interior is a nice indian feel The food was amazing. in particular the chilli panner, chicken kebabs and nan breads. they use a charcoal / tandoori oven, it really pays off.

Nairobi has good Indian food, to be sure, but Open House is the best. I have been about 8 times and it is consistently good every time.

I have been to this restaurant several times and have never been disappointed. Indian food for Indians basically. Taste is a little different than in India but very good overall. If you miss Indian food then please stop by this restaurant one night when you are in Nairobi. A little hard to find so get directions.

You won't be disappointed. I have eaten at this establishment and the food is consistently great. My husband and I particularly love the biryiani! Their tangerine juice is also very fresh and tasy!

We visited the Karen restaurant for my son's birthday and had an excellent time. The food and service was superb. Well worth a visit.

Make sure you book a table, Open House offers great Indian food and getting a table, particularly at weekends can be a challenge. If you are in an Indian restaurant and the clientele is predominantly Asian you know you are in the right place! Service is good and the staff are happy to adjust seasoning to your specific taste.

The chicken makhanwalla is the best ever. It is delicately spiced and very filling. A must eat with their cheese naans.
