Only hashmi will do

We order take out at least once a month, and are never disappointed. whenever we visit Mombasa as a family our first stop is Hashmi of course. The chicken and kebabs are the best.

Hashmi's serves one of the best meals in Nairobi. Their Butter Naan, Mutton Seekh Kebab and Chicken Tikka (Leg or Breast) are out of this world. The only downside is the Chicken Poussin is quite bad, lack of gravy dishes and slightly expensive menu. Maybe the meat dishes can be reduced by 200 KES atleast to make it feel worth... More

This restaurant is very basically and simpley furnished, nothing fancy at all, but do not let that be a put off, as it is clean and pleasant once you dig into their food. Their BBQ is their speciality with their succulent tandoori chicken with nan and accompaniments. Try their masala chips and mixed grill too. They do an efficient delivery... More

The food here is spot on. If you are a fan of chicken tikka, grilled meat and delicious sides, this is the place. I have eaten here at least twice a month for years now and when I fly home after a long trip away, this is one of the meals I look forward to having on my return. I... More

Went here with a group of nearly 20 on a weekend lunch time. The place is simply decorated, pretty big and very busy. The service was very good and pretty quick and we even had the fun of having a couple of very short power cuts. The food was very good and portions of a very good size. I was... More

It's not about the atmosphere, or the service, but rather about that particular dish you have grown to love on this menu. Everyone seems to have their favourite dish and for me its the boneless chicken with pili-pili chips. Such a great comfort meal. Outside of my personal obsession, this restaurant is generally a very good bbq joint.

Hashmi's is a great restaurant. The atmosphere is so so (old design etc), but the food makes up for all of it. I always ordered the Mixed Grill with Masala Fries, which was a portion that could feed two easily. Hashmi's does delivery for an additional 250 KSh in selected areas.

Usually order take out and am never disappointed. Mutton kebab, buttered nan and poussin chips was the latest i just ordered. All i can say is there are no better kebabs in town. Chips are awesome and really love the poussin sauce & chooza sauce, the yogurt sauce also goes well with the salad. Paneer tikka & chooza chicken are... More

Have sampled many of the dishes and love almost all of them. Was slightly disappointed with the fish this time around, but their kebabs and chicken dishes really made up. Chips are awesome and portions are humongous

Lovely, lovely. I have ordered lunch from there on several occassions, The delivery is good and they adhered to the promised time, the portions are very generous. I mainly order the mixed grill this a gives one a variety, the accompanying salad is always fresh and tasty. Their fries are delicious. The food is worth every single cent.
