These are legendary! You cannot come to Nairobi without at least one (I had two) visits to The Open House, and whatever they do to the ginger prawns is out of this world!

This is a nice place to have a fast dinner, or a slow and long one. Serving is fast, and the owner of the place keens on the guests. Food was also delicious, but you need to know and find the taste you like, or Indian food can be interesting for your stomach :)

Don't be put off by the location. This place has been serving up cheap, tasty indian food in unpretentious surroundings for years. Go with an empty stomach and try the cheese nan bread.

The place serves good food and the prices are some how appealing to the eyes, the secret behind this is the portions are smaller. But overall not a bad place, and if you looking for a better option try Haandi which is right opposite and its the best in town.
