“Always a treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Never disappointed - great food! Parking can take awhile but it is always worth it. Great place to go with family and friends or even for take away!

“Bland Chicken Tikkas and Kebabs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

Visited Sunday 11 April 2014

It is very noisy and busy on a Sunday evening but still....... they need to maintain standards.

First the chicken tikkas are very bland and not properly marinated. I know this from past experiences and so asked for "double basting" but still very bland compared to the other tikkas available from their smaller competitors in Nairobi.

Others in our group were not happy with their tikkas either - similar bland complaint and under-cooked in one instance.

The kebabs here are usually excellent and very generous size. The size was great and cooked right - so nice and juicy but the meat was again not spiced properly.....

All in all dissappointing food and really feel these guys are mass producing and not paying enough attention to their meat marination and spices.

“was great now average”

food is good and prices are reasonable, waiters some times ignore you, space availability is a big problem, privacy is zero you will find someone you know because every one goes there :)

The best barbecue and paan! Really fresh!. The service was very good, but the place could be a little cleaner.
