One of the few fully vegetarian restaurants that has maintained it's quality. It has a few restaurants around the Parklands area which is highly dominated by the Asian community. The prices have gone up recently and can be compared to restaurants in London or Mumbai where starters are around $5. The ambiance is good. A must try is the chilli... More

Great Indian restaurant and great service. It has a few branches in town and this is concerning the one in the Diamond Plaza Mall. Waiters are very attentive, food is great and maybe little less spicy as compared to some other Indian outfits in town. Great dosa. Prices are also very reasonable, fully recommended.

Chowpaty is fully vegetarian. It has some extensive variety of options that are good even for non-vegetarians. The waiters are sometimes a let-down...inattentive and slow. A friend had asked that her food be cheese-free and confirmed with the waiter but he proceeded to bring a dish with cheese. The food is generally good though

Best Indian food in Nairobi! The chili paneer is heaven. for those who find the ambience underwhelming, they also do delivery.

I had some people round for dinner - no time to cook so I ordered in a takeaway from Chowpatty Diamond Plaza. The next day EVERYONE was throwing-up and locked in the toilet. Shame really, food was nice, service was great. But I certainly will not use them again.

The food at Chowpaty is good, even for non-vegatarians. We had a variety of dishes which were perfect for sharing with a group. Do not go to the food corner, unless you want to be harassed by overexcited staff from 10 other restaurants (literally).

Craving for South or North Indian food in Nairobi? then this is a great place for you. Anything from chat to Thali to south Indian dosas were up to taste standards. The African hostess also wore a sari to give you a feel for India. Loved it. Thlai included butter milk and sweets, an integral part of the Indian Thali.
