A friend recommended this restaurant. The restaurant is located in Westlands area of Nairobi but the directions provided on google maps are not very clear. I had made a reservation for dinner for two and when we arrived, the staff were waiting for us; the restaurant is large and airy with a very vibrant atmosphere; it appears that the place... More

Been to open house a millions times and the food never disappoints. Known for both veg and non veg india food it definitely comes out at top 5 Indian Restuarant's in kenya. Try the palak paneer and the garlic mushrooms. The dal maharani. The service is good and the owner is always around if you want to ask for recommendations.

The dishes look small but there's more... More

There are a great many fancy restaurants in Nairobi - with prices to match - but Open House surpasses them all. This place is delightful - the food never fails to satisfy, the service is great, price is right, and no request is too difficult. It's popular so make sure to book of an evening.

We have been going to this restaurant for years and the quality of the food and service has been good throughout. They also do home deliveries, which we use often. Pleasant atmosphere, great food and good service.

This restaurant is owner managed - they look after you and also walk into the kitchen to make sure the food is cooked to their perfection .... and to your choice .... amazing bbq and superb curries that one must have when in Nairobi - the city in the sun.
