Decor: simple
Service: v good
Food: excellent

Try the Chilean red...good value and goes well with the food.

I think the secret to this restaurants success is that the original chefs are now the management and they continue to be present every day.

I have ordering take outs from Open House and I have never been disappointed. The portions are large, when you specify how spicy you want it to be they never over/under do it. I highly recommend Open house

Don't accept anyone telling you that the rival establishments of Anghiti's or Handi's are better. They are not. I have been going to Open House since 2000 when it was located in Bishan Plaza. It's current location gives it a more comfortable restaurant feel. Less upmarket than other restaurants, but you don't come here to eat the decor. Run by brothers Matthew and Anil, one of them is always on duty at the restaurant to ensure that standards do not drop. Indeed, after thirteen years I have still not had a bad meal. Consistency is the toughest thing to find in the Nairobi restaurant scene but Open House ticks the box. Particularly recommended are the starters, especially ginger fried prawns, paneer chili fry, chicken chili fry, ginger chicken wings and the mushroom special (garlic). A wide selection of Nan's also including particularly good cheese nan and (chili) turbo nan. Mains are also good but we tend to be full by then, so consider ordering just a large selection of starters, many of which you won't see at other Indian restaurants.

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.
