“Best ever BBQ”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

Excellent place for Spicy BBQ. Amazing food and maintained the taste for over decades now.
Ambience needs to be worked on a little more, but regardless of the ambience, the food is tantalising.

Have been eating every month and never been disappointed. Service is excellent, best poussin chips, kebab roll and chooza chicken in town with delightful sauces at an affordable price..

Reviewed November 26, 2013

this is one of the best BBQ places in Nairobi.
Tastes great. very authentic. the poussin sauce is the best there. great value for money for sure. It so popular that you do have to go quiet early to get a table. great location too

“The best barbecue chicken i have ever had.. a must try for anyone visiting Nairobi :):)”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

The one thing i really miss about nairobi is the chooza chicken served at Hashmi's.. it is something unique that i have not found anywhere else.. When we were in nairobi our friend kept on insisting us to go visit the place so we did and then kept going there repeatedly as our trip was just one week long and we wanted to have it as many times as we culd.. their chooza chicken is amazing along with their masala fries when eaten with their condiments... all food is served with a good size salad plate and condiments.. serving size for all the dishes we tried were big and more then enough for one person :).. the restaurant itself is average and sometimes there is long waiting time like on weekends but all tolerable for the great food they serve.. service is good as they usually take 20 min to serve the order and everything moves very quickly..

i highly recommend anyone who is going to Nairobi to try this and you will not be disappointed :)
