“BEST Indian Barbecue Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

I absolutely LOVE food from this restaurant. It is fresh, the service is great and there's a wide variety to choose from. Alcohol is not served as the owners are Muslim. However, the great food more than makes up for that little glitch. It is also only open at lunch time and in the evenings on weekdays and all day on weekends. If you love spicy barbecue....this is the place to be!

The barbecue chicken is flavored with ginger, garlic and cooked on a charcoal.. definitely yum. I would recommend it. Its not about the decor its about the food.

“Good food, with wide range of barbecues”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

Hashmi is a very popular restaurant amongst the Nairobi Asian community though these days a wide variety of others frequent the well situated Resaturant including Somalis, Arabs and few others.
The food is served very well by all means and tastes just as one would delight.
The staff are good & well trained for their strenuous job.
Those planning to go there at rush hours should expect to wait for tables to get empty as its really packed during those times.
Price is slightly high, but the excellence of food is also high.

“Serves HALAL Food in Nairobi - Affordable Prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

The biggest plus of the place is that it serves Halal food and a Barbecue to Pakistani / Indian taste. I visited this place with office colleagues on our first evening in Nairobi.

It is a casual dining place with average ambiance. I found the place to be a little pungy. However, the food was nice (not the best). We had Chicken Tikka, Chops, Kababs, Mutton Tikka, Cheese Paratha & Kulfi. Other than Chops & Kulfi all the items were quiet nice.

On the whole, the prices were also very affordable compared to what we had seen online for other places. We ended up paying KSH 5200 (US$65) for 4 people (& we order one dish too much).

I may not go to the place for its average ambiance, but we do plan for ordering deliveries.

“THE BEST BARBEQUE PLACE IN TOWN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Their food is great, whether its mixed grill or just the Naan, their quality and quantity of their food is superb. I especially loved the mixed grill dish which is quite a lot for one person. The ambiance is great and on weekends, one need to either make a booking or get their early so as to get a seat. Yes, it's that packed on weekends...that just goes to show how great their food is.
