“Awesome Indian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

This is perhaps the best Indian food in Nairobi. Either this or Handee. My bet is on Open House!

The food is, according to my Indian friend, like sitting in Mumbai and eat. The service is good and fast, and the food is just perfect. Garlic naan and ginger chicken masala beat anything else :-)

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Nairobi.

“Why the hype?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

My husband and I went here for a 'date night' on the recommendation of friends. We stuck to some basic dishes - chicken tikka masala, naan, a veg dish and an order of a house special chili chicken to start. I was really underwhelmed. Maybe we ordered the wrong things. The naan wasn't even fresh and fluffy. I'd like to try it again and go with a regular customer. People rave about this place too much for there not to be something good on the menu!

“Best Non-Vegetarian Indian food in Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

This place has excellent Indian food, and also some other fusion dishes that I've never seen before in my life (if you like ginger, please try the ginger chicken wing appetizer; don't think it's Indian, but it will make your taste buds flip nonetheless). Other than Chowpaty, which is an all veg Indian restraurant in Nairobi, I think it has the best quality and variety of all the Indian places in the city.
