This has the best curry in the whole world. Wonderful friendly service. If you are a visitor to Nairobi, this is a must to know what the locals love to eat.

Definitely the best Indian restaurant in Nairobi. Don't be put off by the shabby exterior, or the pull of the more famous Haandi restuarant across the road in Westlands mall. Open House's food is truly excellent: fresh, subtly spiced, and not too rich. Ginger prawns are a must. Get there early as it gets very crowded.

For starters, the fact that this place is primarily patronized by Indian (ethnically) families is a good thing. The food is pretty legit and the atmosphere is cozy if a little cheap and cheerful.

Like most any restaurant in Nairobi, the staff here also tend to dote -- invisible and efficient is unthinkable -- and may repeatedly move the same object on the dinner table to 'make room' for a later addition. This is more likely than not to provoke your acknowledgement...ignoring them may have the opposite and unintended effect.

But at least at Open House they're running such a brisk business that they hardly have the time for this. So don't hesitate to go for the quick comfort food. Just don't expect to be able to park on site: so pay a bit extra for the car park next door at the Uchumi shopping plaza.

Without doubt the best Indian in town with a solid food selection and efficient and very polite service. Always full, mainly Indian patrons, and they should know. Not pocket friendly these days - as taxes are added on top. Long gone are the days Open House was a simple curry take-away along Muthithi Road know as the 'Den'. Great place.

The service was very good, and the food was wonderful. It was nice to enjoy a tasty meal. I would recommend dressing up a bit. We went in jeans and t-shirts and felt a bit out of place. It is a little bit expensive, but completely worth it! I would recommend the vegetarian paneer and the house ice cream!! We went to the location in Karen at the Crossroads Mall on the second floor. What a hidden gem!!!!
