Love this place. Nairobi is full of good Indians, but this is among the best. Price is middle of the range for Nairobi's posher restaurants.

“Descent Indian Vegetarian Food”
Reviewed September 1, 2014

Very strange entrance, didn’t expected a restaurant to be there as we enter. We went on a Friday and it appeared to be fully occupied with noise from everywhere. The interiors are plain and simple. Didn’t quiet meet the high rating standard for me.

We tried vegetarian and to me it was descent. Nothing great as yet, the type of flavors are common in India. Starter like Veg Sheekh kebab appeared too dry but enjoyed Paneer Makhani and Dal Tadka. If you’ll have any vegetarian recommendation, pls spell out during orders. Wish you’ll great luck.

“Not what we expected”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

This Place had very good reviews on trip advisor, so we decided to try it out. It was a big disappointment. First of all the entrance place was kind of gloomy and the welcome to the restaurant was also not very friendly. It was almost as we disturbed them . However we could have lived with that if the food had been nice and the place cosy. Unfortunately this was not the case. The place(and staff) looks "tired" and the taste of the food was just ok nothing special. The worst was however to happen when we came home from the restaurant as one of us became violently sick. I will not describe exactly what happened but we clearly suspects that one of our dishes was not ok. We can of course not prove this but it is most likely the case. No need to say that we will never come back to this place. One good thing about the place is that the prices are reasonable.

“Special Flavours”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

What this restaurant is not is a modern slick restaurant with glitz and fancy uniforms. What it is is a restaurant which serves Indian cuisine PACKED with flavour. My favourite was the deep fried salty ginger sticks. I will be back!!
