It's a good restaurant. A bit expensive but yummy. They have a layered Briyani which all of us like. Mostly we just go to have the layered Briyani.

I have been a return diner at Open House for over 10 years. Open House never disappoints and in my view has the best Indian food in Nairobi.

We've been eating at Open House for many years. It never fails to offer a great meal, and a "safe" haven when going through the rigors of a day in Nairobi.

This has been a surprise, in this trip to Nairobi. Effectively, the best Indian food in Kenya... Also a nice place to have a team dinner (we were c. 20 people).
