Lovely Indian restaurant with authentic Punjabi style dishes. Doesn't quite deserve reputation as the best in Nairobi however. Nevertheless worth a visit for the delicious food.

Open House is consistently the best Indian food I have eaten in Nrb. Much better than Diamond Plaza(to me anyway). I love the Butter Chicken, the Briani, the Lamb dishes are all great and the starters and the Mango Lassi are awesome.

Good authentic Indian cuisine and good service. The location is upstairs in a shopping mall and a window table only gives a view of a car park. However it's tastefully decorated and prices are reasonable. They do deliver locally too.

Let's start with the food, It really was excellent. I'm not a critic, but I did dine alone here. I had the Ginger Chicken Masala, plain rice, plain nan and 2 x popidums (that's how I like to spell the word) add in 2 Tuskers and that was my lunch. As excellent as the food was was, I was quite...

However, the very pleasant owners found us a table after a quick wait. The owner/ managers were very hands on and were making sure that the service and seating... More
