Great Indian food

The Friday night buffet for 750 Ksh will be good for your stomach and your sole. Some of the best Indian food I've had in Kisumu! Haven't been on any other night yet though.

Go on Friday nights at 9 pm for the most amazing Indian buffet! There is a huge variety of food, all for only 750 KSH. Go very, very hungry!

Located between United Mall and main bus park, Simba club is a members establishment that allows temporary membership to diners. Friday nights buffets are the main attraction to non-members with tasty Indian cuisine. The menu is well balanced, ambience average, service good. It looks obscure during the day but comes alive in the evening, colorful, breezy. Yum..!!

The word on the street is that the past owner of the Club use to serve dinner to the public every Friday night, and the new owner has continued this tradition. This is buffet style Indian food (and some Italian- which never made sense to me) at a good price- I want to say approx 1200KSH + drinks. The food... More

They have a huge buffet on Fridays. You pay 750 shillings (jacked up from 500, might change again) and you get amazing Indian food. They have some vegetarian options. You get ice cream at the end. It's pretty magical. They get you on drinks. A beer is expensive for Kisumu, something like two-fifty bob, and they gut you if you... More

the food here was really tasty, however the tables were all outside resulting in a ridiculous amount of mozzies attacking you while trying to enjoy dinner. the staff were all lovely as well and were more then happy to call taxi's etc.

My first taste of Kenyan Indian cuisine and it is delicious. A large variety of dishes to choose from and the price is right (about $6.00 USD for all you can eat!)
