“Nice food noisy, annoying waiters”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

The food around the place is nice. Mashalah has nice everything. However, the experience between the parking lot and the time you sit on a table is a nightmare. I dont know what can be done. There are many stores each with a representative on the parking lot barking at your window. They fight for clients. They get aggressive if you ignore them. Not my cup of tea. A good place for a quick snack but never a place for dinners, dates and relaxation.

Yummy, yummy in my tummy. If you like Indian food you have to go there! Nice, nice! And there are some shops there, too, so I'm sure you will enjoy it.

Last year there was free aprking, and no parking spaces. With the intorduction of parking charges this year it looks as if there is more space. Great place ofr all induian street food. waiters compete for clients which can be annoying.

“Little India in Nairobi”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

This food court offers a sampling of all kinds of Indian food. From bhajias to mushkaki, from fresh fruit juices to coconut water, from dosas to palak paneer, from chicken tikka to vegetable makhani...you get the idea.

Be prepared to be bombarded by persistent waiters who are trying to sell you items from each of the food court stands. It is quite entertaining in itself. A lovely place to sit outside and watch the numerous Indian (and a few non-Indian) families go around shopping and eating. And very cheap!
