Every dish was fabulous and they cater for all tastes from super mild to extra hot. Kofta Malai the best i have ever had. Kulfi and Halwa superb. Definitely on my lost of favourite restaurants in nairobi.

Good food, not the cheapest, but good. Best to go in a group so you can order a range of items. Unfortunately no thali.

Its one of the few Indian Cuisine restaurants in Nairobi that have maintained their standard. Nice food and service. For evenings though, I recommend booking ahead as the place gets very full.

Found their food was cooked with light masalas and very little oil or cream. Enjoyed the Naans very much. Guests with me had Methi Mutton, Garlic Prawns, Chicken Biryani and Paneer Makani. We all shared like we eat Chinese food. We all decided to have a glass of lassi (seasoned yogurt) very refreshing.

The quality of food has gone down quite a bit. Too much food color in the masala instead of natural spice as before. The buttered naan is always great though..

Authentic Indian cuisine, spices, flavours, great menu. I mainly go to the karen branch, but they are both great. I would eat at Open house with friends, family, overseas visitors, or just get a takeaway if Im in a hurry. It always delivers...

Possibly the best Indian food you could get in Nairobi. Tends to get busy so making a booking is advisable.

I rather go to the Karen open house restaurant for take aways or family diners. Although all dishes are great, my favorites are still the chicken murg makawalla, garlic nans and spinach paneer.

My wife and I had very good lunch today at the popular and prestigious Open House Restaurant in Westlands. One of the Directors Mr. Anil(Lala) is always there to welcome the customers/Guests. The food was simply delicious and the service was excellent. The restaurant has been maintaining very good standard over the years. It is well managed with friendly management... More
