“BEST INDIAN RESTAURANT FOR MONEY IN EAST AFRICA!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Open House is located at the Nakummatti crossing road opposite the Westlands mall.The entrance is not impressive from the front but through a side alley.It was the Indian independence day & expecting a big crowd,i had booked my table for 2 in advance.I was met & greeted by Mr. Matthew who is the jt. owner of this restaurant along with Anil.

After entering i turned left & hit the Bar.Met some fine people & swapped travel stories with fellow travelers.Their `In house ` wine is good & recommend especially the white one.I liked the informal atmosphere & con.exchanges as compared to the more formal`Haandi Restaurant just across the road in westlands mall which does not have an independent bar room.

The reserved tables are on the first floor & was guided to my table by a waiter.All the tables on the ground & first floor were filled up mostly with local & Indians from all over the world with a sprinkling of other western foreigners.The atmosphere was relaxed & chatty.For starters we ordered ginger fried prawns.The order came fast & well prepared.Next was Tandoori fish Tikka & Goan Fish curry both very good.Last we had their much acclaimed Boneless mutton Biryani which was excellent in taste & aroma.For Dessert we had some good Kulfi. For the excellent food & friendly informal ambience the bill was really value for money.The only drawback was the small toilet which was only on the first floor which appeared as a temporary wooden partition in the small corner used by all customers in the bar,first & 2nd floor.

We will return & highly recommend this restaurant.

“Good restaurant..Good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

One of the best Indian restaurant in Nairobi.Delicious food and good atmosphere. I remember one of the dish we ordered was a bit salty so we didn't able to consume it so after finishing our dinner they were inquiring our opinion , then they found one dish is almost untouched, then they shown their interest for the reason why the dish is untouched .finally he deducted the price of the particular dish from our bill even we were ready to pay for that.I feel they really know how to treat their guests.

Great, amazing Indian food. We ate here twice in the amount of time I was in Kenya. It was one of the best Indian food experiences I've had.
