Welcoming

Has a homely feeling with the service offered. Great for their mouth watering Indian cuisine. Loved all I could taste. Very friendly staff and your food won't even get cold. Try it out and you'll agree.

I absolutely love this long-established family run business which has a very personal touch to it. The décor inside its beautiful and quite somewhat formal, it also has a homely feel to it which is wonderful when you want to relax. Whilst I had previously heard positive feedback on this restaurant and had seen the comments on TripAdviser, I was... More

I have had Indian Food Everywhere in Kenya....But never fund an amazing range of dishes as in this place. I recommend all to try out their dishes with sauces. Barbecue is also good when eaten hot. Recommend Advance Bookings if you happen to go over weekends.

I have always been scared of Indian Spicy Food and was very choosy of where i eat. I found this friendly owner - Mehboob Harunani. he made customized food with some Cashew nut Onion Gravy with Chicken . The taste was really fantastic and i will always visit this place again and again whenever i am in Mombasa

Shehnai serves the best Mughal cuisine in Mombasa. Very royal ambiance. The service is very personalized, with the owner always greeting you personally. All the mughlai dishes are excellent. Specially the Chicken Malai Tikka, the Murgh Massallam, the Safron Rice, the Handi Biryani, the Paneer Tikka. Their Lassis are god too, as are the Indian dessert 'Kulfi'. The seating is... More

Amazing food! Recommendable for Vegeterians! Excellent Services! Birthday specials are the best! Perfection at its best would be the Mushroom curry and the Maize Curry!
