“Excellent Indian fusion restaurant. Superb service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Excellent Indian fusion restaurant. Superb service. Huge portions. Party of about 6 and turned out we were the only guests on this night and the staff did not disappoint in service and food. Definitely recommend and look forward to my next visit.

“Quiet gem of an Indian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Had dinner here once with friends, the place is very quiet, the food was amazing and I think quite reasonably priced.

“Great Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

While in Nairobi, this is the restaurant I am taken to for lunch every day! The food is really awesome, and I noticed the prices are not bad either. They have a good mix of Eastern and traditional dishes, as well as a good steak and chips! The portions are huge though, so I normally get a doggy bag.
The decor is not fancy, more on the functional side - but it is really clean, and the waitresses are really friendly. Good vibe during lunch.
