I went to this restaurant for the very first time with Muslim friends to break their fast and it was crowded. This was an assurance of the restaurant's popularity but also a caution to book a table ahead. This also means you should prepare to shout your entire conversation :) The menu had a wide range of meat, poultry and... More

This restaurant is the best choice to taste Swahili / Indian grills. The meet is always fresh and the marination with the spices is perfect. Going to the restaurant is not easy because you have to book in advance or just wait till you get a free table. Take away is another option to enjoy the great taste

Chicken tikka, paneer, Chooza chicken, Fish tikka, mutton/chicken chappati choose any and they are delicious any time! Hashmi is mostly full any day, so you always get fresh stuff. Weekends are particularly busy and on those days the restaurant decibel levels are high! All the staff from the counter to the waiters are friendly. Good food takes time to cook,... More

If you love spicy, Indian foods, then Hashmi will not disappoint. Sumptuous Chicken Tikka or Tangy Chicken Chooza, Well done Steak with an array of sauces to Paneer dishes all with a short wait time. On weekends, the restaurant is fairly full and you may end up waiting an hour for a table. Parking is also a challenge. Do not... More

Visited Sunday 11 April 2014 It is very noisy and busy on a Sunday evening but still....... they need to maintain standards. First the chicken tikkas are very bland and not properly marinated. I know this from past experiences and so asked for "double basting" but still very bland compared to the other tikkas available from their smaller competitors in... More

food is good and prices are reasonable, waiters some times ignore you, space availability is a big problem, privacy is zero you will find someone you know because every one goes there :)
