“The best resturant for Swahili grills”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

This restaurant is the best choice to taste Swahili / Indian grills. The meet is always fresh and the marination with the spices is perfect. Going to the restaurant is not easy because you have to book in advance or just wait till you get a free table. Take away is another option to enjoy the great taste

“Great barbeque”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

Chicken tikka, paneer, Chooza chicken, Fish tikka, mutton/chicken chappati choose any and they are delicious any time! Hashmi is mostly full any day, so you always get fresh stuff. Weekends are particularly busy and on those days the restaurant decibel levels are high! All the staff from the counter to the waiters are friendly. Good food takes time to cook, so do not be in a hurry! Parking at the Ukay centre can be a hassle. Hashmi also does home delivery if you want to avoid the parking situation. It is one of my favourite restaurants.

“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.
