“Constantly in the Top10. Rightly so.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

Without doubt the best Indian in town with a solid food selection and efficient and very polite service. Always full, mainly Indian patrons, and they should know. Not pocket friendly these days - as taxes are added on top. Long gone are the days Open House was a simple curry take-away along Muthithi Road know as the 'Den'. Great place.

“Excellent Indian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

The service was very good, and the food was wonderful. It was nice to enjoy a tasty meal. I would recommend dressing up a bit. We went in jeans and t-shirts and felt a bit out of place. It is a little bit expensive, but completely worth it! I would recommend the vegetarian paneer and the house ice cream!! We went to the location in Karen at the Crossroads Mall on the second floor. What a hidden gem!!!!

“BEST Indian Food in Nairobi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Open House, Hashmi's, Diamond Plaza Food court - that is my order of good indian food. People say Haandi's, I say Open House. But, this is just my opinion. Get the ginger mushroom and the paneer chili...awesome!

“Obnoxious service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

This is perhaps the only restaurant in Nairobi (or perhaps all if Kenya) where table rotation take priority over a leisurely dinner. The manager is quite anxious to get new customers in that he wants the existing ones to finish their dinner in a hurry and get out.

The quality is not all that exceptional anyway.

Not a restaurant I will visit ever!

“Curry house in Karen?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Very pleasant curry house eatery in Karen at the Nakumatt Crossroads mall. Great food, great service, reasonably priced, what more can one want in a curry house.
