This was one of the first restaurants we went to in Nairobi. It did not disappoint. Kenya, having a large Indian population, has many great, authentic Indian restaurants. This is one of them. The food was really great. The atmosphere was nice. The service was good except for one thing that was kind of weird. When we didn't order dessert,... More

One of my favorite places for a family dinner. A little bit cramped but the food is divine and the manager is very welcoming.

Excellent place for true Indian dinner, near the Sankara hotel in Nairobi. Great curries and helpful staff. Go there for business dinner, or with friends and family, and enjoy a relaxed evening.

Took my mum here this week for a quiet birthday lunch. The service was superb. The friendly waiter who served us was familiar with the menu and ingredients which was handy since one of us ate gluten free. There are plenty of vegetarian options to choose from. A highlight of my dining experience was freshly made, warm poppadoms (as mostIndian... More

I took a friend there for her farewell dinner and it was wonderful. Despite arriving 15 minutes late for our reservation, they had kept the table for us. As we walked in, the intoxicating aroma coming from the kitchen was both inviting and comforting on this particularly cold night. We had the Goan fish curry and palak paneer, accompanied by... More

I cannot believe I have gone all these years without knowing that outstanding curry is available just round the corner from my office and for a good price. All the meals are well seasoned and hot enough to be tingling. Rice is good and the chapatis/naans/roti excellent. Service is outstanding. Its for me!!

We love Open House! I grew up thinking I didn't like Indian food because I had only had a few experiences, and they were very unpleasant. Open House has made me rethink my opinion. Our favorite dishes are the Ginger Chicken, Butter Chicken and Tikka Chicken Masala, Dhania Garlic Prawns, Palek Paneer, Garlic Naan, and Vegetable Biriyani. We've only been... More
