I love Southern Indian Food and the food was indeed superb. Everything was very fresh and tasty. The menu was very extensive.
I have to say that the service was super efficient and very friendly. Our waiter was a true gentleman.
The location is quite convenient and easy to get to. I live in Kilimani and had no trouble reaching the restaurant thanks to the new improved roads.
However, the food isn't cheap. Furthermore, the nothing special and couldn't be described as romantic. Nonetheless, I'm happy to be able to get superb Southern Indian Cuisine in Nairobi.

had been to chowpaty restaurant at diamond plaza , near westlands . ordered for a masala dosa . dosa was good and the sambhar too was very delicious. Reminded me of sai krupa restaurants in india . service was good . but the price of one masala dosa was 370 KES which is equivalent to almost INR 200 - 225 . So expensive dosa i have never eaten in india .

Note: there are several Chowpaty restaurants in the Westlands/Parklands area. I believe they are all under the same ownership. This review is of the Westlands location in Shimmers Plaza).

The menu has South Indian, North Indian and some Chinese sprinkled in. I think one can get better North Indian elsewhere (albeit not as cheap) so I focus on the South Indian. Chowpaty's strength is a wide variety of dosas, each of which comes in 2 formats: plain (no filling) and masala (potato/onion filling). Get the latter in order to be satisfied. The dosas come with a coconut sauce and with sambar - delicious. The puri is also good.

Despite boasting an army of waiters, service can be slow when there are many diners, but the waiters are friendly. Beware: parking is a nightmare at lunchtime.

If you're looking for Asian cuisine with a spicy kick, this is the place to go to. With lots of moghlai and Chinese dishes to choose from, you will be spoint for choice without breaking the bank. Be sure to try the paneer tikka and triple schezuan rice..finger licking good!
And the dosas...paper thin and melt in your mouth.
