The Ambiance, The Food, The Service everything was up to the mark, had Veg + Non Veg dishes both were delicious, it is good to see a good Indian restaurant in Nairobi, Kenya rates were quiet high however the quality makes the sense of it,good this is Kitchen is transparent where u could get to see what your chef is doing with your Dish.

“Some great great dishes here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

The ambience here was quite nice. The tandoori chicken was exceptional, as were the butter paneer and rasmalai - all delicately nuanced in flavor. Carrot halwa and papadam were well above average. Portions could be a tad larger overall, but were just barely acceptable. The daal makanhi did not have the depth of flavor expected and the pista kulfi was not good at all. Wines and juices offered were quite nice. The reason I am giving this restaurant a 4 rating instead of a 5, is the rather slow and arrogant service by the waitstaff.

“Spices that you can taste”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

Exceptional Indian food in Kenya. Perhaps one of the very best.
There was a long wait to get a table in this popular Indian spot but well worth it.
The dishes on offer were simply out of this world and of a very high standard. You can certainly taste the spices in all the curry dishes even the very hot ones.
If you like Indian food this place will be globally ranked on your list of best of the best.
Try the spiced up chicken curry it will make you forget about the lack of atmosphere. The food here makes all the difference,
Don't miss out!
