“5-Star Food, Fast Food Service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

If you love spicy, Indian foods, then Hashmi will not disappoint. Sumptuous Chicken Tikka or Tangy Chicken Chooza, Well done Steak with an array of sauces to Paneer dishes all with a short wait time. On weekends, the restaurant is fairly full and you may end up waiting an hour for a table. Parking is also a challenge. Do not go in expecting five star service. A bustling, noisy environment with good food and great atmosphere for a family bonding.

Definitely recommend. Try it once, It just may become your favorite weekend hangout.

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.
