I've eaten at Hashmi's several times and have always found that the food was excellent and very fresh, The fruit juices were also excellent. The service has been good,but never exceptional. Hashmi's is very popular with the local Indian communit y which is an excellent indication that their food is authentic and homemade.

Highly popular BBQ house inside the Ukay shopping mall. Great for Indian chicken dishes. Can get stuffy when crowded, but it's part of the experience. No alcohol served here so get your fix at the Orchid Lounge right opposite.

After my tough Kilimanjaro climb with an excellent group I flew to Nairobi to see relatives before returning to U.K. No regrets about Hashmi restaurent. The service and the quality of B.B.Q meat was excellent. The portions big and delicious. Would recommend this place for tourists visiting Nairobi although more locals use it.

Ordered the Mix Grill. Delicious! I hope I will have the opportunity to go back to Hashmi's.

Great place with lots to choose from. I love the Chicken Chipati (sp?) but the masala fries will blow your mind. You can't go wrong here with fresh juices and ice cream if you are interested. In the same Ukay Center there is a great barber that will give you a real shave and a chemist in case you need... More

The " Chooza Chicken " was a revelation. We had the Tandoori Tilapia as well which was pretty decent too. While we waited , we had a quick beer at the bar across the corridor. ( where the service was pretty quick and pleasant as well). As we meet various people in Nairobi, we realized that Hashmi's was pretty much... More

I have lived most of my life in Delhi and Lucknow, and have eaten my share of amazing kebabs, tandooris and mughlai food; and despite that the Chicken Chooza at Hashmi's was not only gloriously, unexpectedly delectable; but was comparable to the best anywhere. The tikka sauce was wonderfully hot and spicy, and the spring chicken was what spring chicken... More

If you go for Fish was brilliant healthy prepared Tandooris are good Nans are little crispy Standard seating, avoid inside rare of the restaurant lacks bit of fresh air. Food is quite good, slightly above average price for these type of restaurant. Mind you hygiene standards are low. Any day is a busy day. Parking good
