“Best BBQ around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

This place rocks, it is consistently excellent and doesn't pretend to be something it isn't. The menu is short, everyone has their favourites be it chicken tikka extra hot with peri peri chips or the chooza chicken.
Belng islamic owned it's a dry establishment and the atmosphere is just right for this cuisine....it's not meant to be haute cuisine in genteel surroundings. The kulfi ice cream and very fresh paan totally round it off. Highly recommended!

“Great food, shame about the setting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Nice food, good service but setting not so great - too crowded and the washrooms not the cleanest. Once the sewer had burst and we had to sit and eat our meal with the stench. Perhaps talk to the Management of UKAY

“Tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Tasty Indian food is served by a squadron of helpful waitstaff. However, the restaurant seems to have lost its ambience, and the Westlands mall it is located in, is past its prime. But sit and enjoy the food and the service, and you won't be disappointed.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Best indian BBQ food in kenya. Chicken Tikka and Poussin is a must! the range of food is limited, which is great, as it concentrates on its specialaties. Keema Chapati and its kulfi is also lovely.

“Want some Arabic food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

We had a variety of food here.. including Indian and Arabic. My husband who is a heavy meat eater loved their Shawarma and kebabs. I loved the vegetarian kebabs too and the after food treat was the ice creams! If you have a sweet tooth,, remember they have a quite a good variety!
