We went for lunch and arrived at opening. The service was rapid and accurate and the food full of flavours - their masala fries are the best tasting I have had anywhere. Next time I will try the Spring Chicken which is apparently their speciality, and then the Chicken Tikka. Worth a trip!

The food is extremely tasty. I have tried so many dishes and all of them are really nice. The prices are reasonable compared to other restaurants in Nairobi. Great Value for money!!!

Good food..definitely..extremely good flavours. A little pricey for the portions (i think) but no trip to Nairobi is complete without experiencing the 'Hashmi' experience. Definitely worth a trip.

Lovely place though tends to get v busy so prepare to queue up for half hour or more at peak times. Very lively place and just have to see how many takeaway orders are being delivered/picked up to know that this is a very popular place. The chicken chooza and tikka are the speciality and well well worth it!

I love thier Chiken Tikka and their Fish Tikka, the tastiest in the world. They do not serve alcohol. They probably have one of the best chef in Nairobi. The place is accessible, inside the Nakumat UK shopping Center. The Nakumat provision store is open 24 hours but Hashmi has fixed hours. If you want to go outside lunch or... More

7 of us, including 2 young children, enjoyed a delicious late Sunday lunch at Hashmi's. We ordered a range of food, from mild to medium, and all was delicious - chicken tikka, fish tikka, mutton skewers, naan bread - all excellent! Service was good too. We wanted to share so were brought extra plates. Would highly recommend this place!

Hashmi is my favorite place to eat in Nairobi. Indian BBQ - the fish and paneer tikka are the best. Comes with chips and you can add on naan. If you are looking for good, basic and filling place to eat - Hashmi is the go-to place in Nairobi.
