I visit this place for take away only. Food is delicious with value for money. Excellent service. Average place to sit and dine there hence prefer take away.

Lovely place though tends to get v busy so prepare to queue up for half hour or more at peak times. Very lively place and just have to see how many takeaway orders are being delivered/picked up to know that this is a very popular place. The chicken chooza and tikka are the speciality and well well worth it!

I love thier Chiken Tikka and their Fish Tikka, the tastiest in the world. They do not serve alcohol. They probably have one of the best chef in Nairobi. The place is accessible, inside the Nakumat UK shopping Center. The Nakumat provision store is open 24 hours but Hashmi has fixed hours. If you want to go outside lunch or... More

7 of us, including 2 young children, enjoyed a delicious late Sunday lunch at Hashmi's. We ordered a range of food, from mild to medium, and all was delicious - chicken tikka, fish tikka, mutton skewers, naan bread - all excellent! Service was good too. We wanted to share so were brought extra plates. Would highly recommend this place!

Hashmi is my favorite place to eat in Nairobi. Indian BBQ - the fish and paneer tikka are the best. Comes with chips and you can add on naan. If you are looking for good, basic and filling place to eat - Hashmi is the go-to place in Nairobi.

This restaurant is a unique experience that unfortunately only locals know about! The food is great, whether you're a veggie or a meat lover. The only problem is that they're often full and don't accept reservations! No alcoholic drinks but the excellent food makes up for it! Great service too! I highly recommend the egg chapati, paneer roll and poussin... More

Based on the raving reviews of this place I was expecting the BBQ meat to be absolutely succulent and delicious. I must admit I was a little disappointed as the tandoori chicken was dry as was the mishkaki. The best thing was the kebab roll which I would recommend. The keema roti was ok but again a bit dry and... More

I have visited this restaurant numerous times. Initially set in the middle of the city - not far off a famous restaurant known as 'Supreme' it has moved to its recent quarters for the last decade or so following a short break in between. What you notice straightaway when you enter is just how busy they are. The restaurant is... More

Hashmi has created its own name in taste, lavish and plenty. You will go back home with a heavy satisfied feel that tells you that you can spoil yourself one more time every time.
