“Used to love love love hashmi UNTILL”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

MY FRIEND FOUND A COCKROACH IN HER FOOD!! :o hashmi is very very famous in Nairobi for being affordable and having really good food at the same time, but now I doubt I will ever go back after this :( such a traumatizing experience to see a live cockroach crawling on your chicken :( aah and this is why, even though the food is good (when there's no cockroaches in it) I am giving really bad reviews.

“Used to be better but still good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

Chicken Tikka and chooza still very good although the size of the chicken getting smaller.
It would be good if you coud order extra chicken pieces one their own without having to order and waste a portion of chips.
Avoid the keema chapati...lacking flavour.

“OK type,could do better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Couple of years back it was a great place, much in demand for BBQ, takeaways, recent experience was a disappointment, both ambiance and quality needs to be upgraded.

“Chooza rules!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

Been a few times in the last 6 months and food always good. Decor and ambiance is on the basic side but you go for the food. You have to have the Chooza chicken (whole chicken done in a tandoori served with chooza sauce) problem is that they only have a set number of portions per night so you have to order early. The ice cream is also damned good...
