We had chicken masala and butter chicken. The roti accompaniment is free and replenished as you progress with your meal. The sauces were tamarind, chilli and some type of yoghurt. The restaurant was clean and service excellent. Sammy is very good. He served us very well and was really hospitable. ☺

I enjoyed a wonderful evening at Shamuras with friends and family. World class service and the food was excellent. The owner made a special visit to our table and made personal recommendations for our meal. I will definitely dine again on my next trip to Nairobi.

Thank Answan J
