Unfriendly staff and rude owner.Our food was not cooked and requested this can be sorted .. instead we were blammed. Wont go again, Nairobi got better places than them.

If you want fast service, atmosphere, even comfy chairs, you might skip Nargis. but if you want the best tikka in town (and I have had most of them after 7 years) this is it. fish tikka and boneless chicken tikka are my favorites also have had the veg biryani and it was excellent. they are packed at lunch (not...

It's expensive for what you get. I had the boneless chicken tikka and it wasn't well cooked. While I was there someone tried to order a samosa, they were told they HAD to buy 3, even though they are listed on the menu singly. The customer is not king.... seems like they don't care. Not open Mondays. Better options close... More

Can't even begin to understand why people compare Nargis to Hasmi. Very average food, no atmosphere or ambience. Been once, not going back.

Not at all my favorite place, though I've eaten here 2-3 times out of social necessity. There is a vegetarian dish once a week, otherwise the only veg option is a greasy "veggie kabob" that always makes me queasy afterwards. The atmosphere could be a lot nicer given that it is in a courtyard, but it's okay. All in all,... More

I took my friends from London there, and ordered my kebab and chips meal. The waiter brought my food, and i could literally COUNT the chips they served on the plate, i think they were like eight or nine! I told the waiter i am not going to pay for this unless they bring me more chips, so he duly... More

Service second to none .a good chicken tikka we ordered for the family grill.to get the taste of the variety they had to order.i must say equally compared to hashmi restaurant. And value for money hope they keep the quality .a definate comback for me. A word of advice when serving tangerine though freshly squeezed do not leave the seeds... More
