This is rated as a must visit to Nairobi and whilst the food was good its just too much of a hassle. Hard to get parking, even harder getting a table, impossible to get a smile from the owners/ waiters and the bill is produced in secs as they are over busy and cant wait for the client too leave....

I came here after great recommendations...the queues for takeaway can be long, finding a table if you're dining in is equally hard. They serve only bbqs (lamb, chicken) with chips, masala chips, naans. Service is friendly.

Hashmi is one of the best restaurants and food in Kenya (more specifically, the Choosa Chicken, Masala Chip and Paneer Tikka). Great for take out and dinning at the restaurants. No frills on decor, but it's clean and delicious. You go there to eat and eat well! Literally a week can't go by without my ordering a Choosa Chicken :)

It's easy to discount Hashmi's based on its surroundings, next to a Nakumatt in a shopping mall that has seen better days. But the sometimes long wait at night in the week or around lunch on the weekend should tell you want to expect. Really good Indian BBQ - Think chicken tikka - and spicer than you would expect: even... More

Very nice food. The place is packed and finding a place to seat as a family is quite hard. The tangerine juice is to die for. the portions are also quite generous. They should make the place a little more airy though.

I must be missing something. Hashmi's has been at the top of the list for so many years that I have to revisit my attitude to the restaurants in general... This is clearly the place for people who love their food, and do not care much, to put it mildly, about ambiance. Someone below compared it to fish market: can't... More

Our local friend brought us here and it was epic! The flavours, the food, the spice, the tangerine juice, all of it was unbelievably good! We had chooza chicken and various other meat dishes including fish, all of which were packed so full of flavour! Definitely a local eatery, but get on it!

One of my regular places to have Chicken Chooza at. The food as always is good, nicely done and arrives pretty quick. Downside is that more often than not one has a waiting time of at least 15 minutes before you get a table. The ambience is not different from that of a very busy fish market. Huge crowd of... More
