Being my first time to dine and experience indian cuisine, my expectations were somewhat neutral. Masala Twist quickly changed that to great within a matter of minutes! Despite the wait staff taking their sweet time to attend to us, our overall experience was not ruined....Before anything else, ask for the Edison Invention cocktail :) and you will not be disappointed. I truly love their starters: Peri peri chicken tikka, chicken erachi pepper & nawabi seekh kebabs. For the main course, our expectations were totally exceeded by the butter chicken with naan & jeera rice as the accompaniments! My good friend and I had to take a breather before indulging in the desserts. Finally, for the sweet course, the masala chai icecream with the ginger biscuits will make all your troubles seem minute hehe Their Indian food truly has a twist!!!More

Great Desi Music .. Not crowded .. Good ambience .. but food is a disaster - they have 2 dishes in NV and 1 in V and french fries .. Luckily we went there after dinner else we would have starved .. Music and choice...of alcohol are positives ..More

Masala Twist At Venom aka Venom terrace. This place would have a Michelin star with queues round the block waiting unashamedly for an opportunity to sample the molecular gastronomy and fusion food. A hidden gem, a mysteriously secret purveyor of taste bud exploding food that...often looks different to what taste results in your mouth. The manager of the restaurant -Abhishek- ushers you in and gets you comfortably seated. He will happily discuss the menu with you and I just love how he describes the food. The mind is the first to be excited. The food starts arriving and the visual feast begins. Then you start eating and the taste senses go into delirium. But i am jumping the gun a bit in my excitement. The cocktails are to die for. Ofcourse had to have the Edison invention. Non alcoholic juice mixes were well thought out too. The table was given a freshener with a dry ice essential oil vaporizer. Got to see it to believe it. The starters are where most of the molecular gastronomy is. Heston Blumenthal you need to eat here. No need to pick and choose. They're all brilliant. Main courses are amazing too. You want everything. Molecular gastronomy returns in the desserts ending in a masala chai flavoured ice cream that finishes on the palate as a sorbet. At one fifth of the price of a london one Michelin star restaurant we dined and we were royalty for a short time. But what a time that was. Well done the Aroras. You deserve to be recognised. I hope and trust that like minded people who read this will want to visit. Good luck.More

I actually want to cry - this place keeps those of us that have the misfortune to live round the corner in One West up until 5am every. single. day. Complete disregard for noise pollution rules. Why do you think you can go against the...law? Definitely not ok (timing and decibels... only gets noisy after midnight). Am fuming...More

The young folks who run this place have learnt their art from Jiggs Kalra in Mumbai and have brought some amazing dishes to Nairobi along with them. The menu is a small one and each of the dishes delectable. We went as four couples and...had a lot of good fun in the lounge. The one hitch was the inordinate delay in bringing the dishes - and that was due to a sudden surge in guests that all wanted to have the Nairobi Restaurant Week set menu. We will visit it again due to the quality of the food - and if the service stays this way nudge the ratings down, but if it goes up, it is getting five stars from me!More

I went for a dinner and was amazed by the new cooking methods they have, and their food is out of this world! I personally loved the butter chicken and the dal tadka. The manager is such a nice guy as well, I'm definitely coming...back!More

It is a slow starting club that later on turns into a nice buzzing place with brilliant music (Bollywood and Bhangra, with a little twist of Kenyan music too). It is definitely the place to be to end your night, after having a few pre-drinks...to carry on. Good location, good set-up, good service on the VIP too.More

It was our last night in Nairobi and we are wondering where to go for dinner. We were staying at the southern sun Mayfair hotel. At a distance of less than 200 mts is Victoria plaza. Someone had recommended a few indian restaurants at Victoria...plaza. We reached the plaza and the lower level had establishment names written on the wall. We see Venom a night club. Since I had never been to a night club in Nairobi, I thought let's take a look. We reach the 9th floor the night club was empty. Just one large group of locals enjoying a sit down meal. I looked at the menu and to my surprise they had indian cuisine and sheesha. So we took a chance. Ordered paneer labaddar, turbo naan, garlic naan, a pan masala sheesha and a pint of tusker. To my complete surprise, it was the best meal I have had in Nairobi. Paneer lababdar was at par with any fine dining restaurant of Mumbai. The naan's were incredible. And the sheesha, well my colleague was content. A must visit. Recommendation: please edit the name to "Tikha Venom" meaning spicy venom. That will tell people you guys serve indian cuisine. Outstanding food.More
