We've ordered delivery from here for the past couple of years but have only sat in once because we just didn't enjoy the noise and general ambiance. That being said, what I like about Hashmi is consistency of taste. I reorder from consistent places because I know exactly what I'm going to get! We also tend to order the same... More

There were 14 of dining here and we ordered all types of different grilled meats. They were all good. The beef and chicken stuffed parathas were awesome and so was the kulfi!

Having heard great reviews from friends and family and also having dined at their branch on the coast, I had the opportunity to experience a meal here. It was the best 'Chicken Poussin' I have ever had and is truly a mouth watering experience. I had also heard the mixed platter is good. A must to visit when in Nairobi.

what i do not like is wait to much for table. they said 10 mins but it appeared 25 mins. The food is really good especially whenever you wanna eat meat (mixed grill) the best. it has poor decoration and it seems very old

If you're looking for fine dining or haute cuisine you're in the wrong place. If you're looking for great food at a reasonable price, go to Hashmi's. We ordered chicken tikka and a mixed grill. Both were lovely as were accompaniments.

An overall good restaurant,although on the expensive side considering the rush to feed you and get you out for someone else to be seated at your table!!The Mombasa branch is a disaster and should just be closed down.After giving it 2 attempts both resulting in all of us ending up in hospital with acute food poisoning,I would certainly not recommend...

Hashmi's is very unassuming, doing what it's good at....food. their chicken tika is probably the best in town. Don't come to hashmi's if you're looking for haute cuisine but you'll be assured of excellent tika dish that not even the best indian restaurants claim to offer. Indeed hashmi's has stuck to the sound business principle....'offer what you're good at, dont... More

The photos and menu look pretty ordinary, but somehow the barbequed meats are just so delicious, accented by great sauces. The masala or pilipili chips (chips coated in spicy sauces) are a great complement. The service and atmosphere are adequate, but you won't really care because the food is so good. When I have visitors in town, this is one... More
