Good choice in the heart of the city.

Recommendable Indian restaurant in a very central location. Not the cheapest (there come 25 % taxes on top of the written menu prices), but the value is ok: tasty food, good lassis and juices, attentive service. The ambience is nicely old-fashioned. The do not serve alcohol at Shehnai.

Excellent food, service, ambience, staff. Would always want have my first meal always whenever in Mombasa. Truelly, the house of Mughlai delicacies. Wonderful as always. Best 5 star restaurant to visit with family, friends or business while at the Coast.

The ambience is awesome and cost. The food served is sumptuous and you feel the mughlai taste. Excellent service and hospitality. Malai Tikka, a delicacy not to be missed.

Nice n warm welcome from the entrance to your table. The mughaal test is still alive n available right in our own home town Mombasa no need to travel to India for such a cuisine.

From the entrance of the restaurant, you feel like this important person who has been ushered in by a 'funny-pointed-shoed' guy at the door. Excellent cuisine, and service.
