My wife and I were seated quickly. The food was wonderful, and the waiters even made the type of suggestions that you LOVE. Highly recommended! We are only in Nairobi for another day or so, but we are certainly planning on going back again. Check out the Chili Fish and get the chopped green chilis to go with them. EXCELLENT!

I had asked a friend where was the best Indian restaurant in Nairobi. She recommended Open House.I took some friends for lunch. We ordered boneless chicken tikka, Methi mutton, Fish Masala, Methi , Garlic Naan, Turbo Naan, Vegetable Pulao and Tandoori Paratha. The food was tasty, and service was great.

This restaurant in Westlands area was recommended by a family member who goes there often. On entering the host who is probably the owner welcomed us with a big smile. Knowing how many people he directed us upstairs where we were given a table for eight. It was my first time in an Indian Restaurant. I liked the kabab, chicken... More

Excellent Indian food, wide choice of specialties. The Makhanwala chicken is particularly good. The price/quality ratio is good too. It's easy to find.

I come here with my family often, we come here as it is close to our home and we don't want to go far into town but still get amazing service and amazing food. Despite this being in the busy Crossroads Shopping Mall, it is a quiet, homely restaurant. The service is excellent, the waiters always serve us with a... More

Place is very organized, reservations was promptly confirmed by mail, friendly staff and personal attention by the owner made us feel valued. Food is good and overall a great dining experience. Would recommend them to introduce some music to avoid distraction due to conversations from other patrons, good place to try India food in Nairobi!

I've been here twice, both times with large groups of work colleagues. The food is always fantastic. Definitely try one of the dishes with fried ginger which seems to be the specialty of the house. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Several people ordered meals not on the menu (some Brits wanting the same as they have at home)... More

Good clean curry house with nice specialities. Food is all of good quality. The gown prawn curry is good. It's fairly expensive though.
