They have 164 different menues, but they have maybe three different base sauces they use for these menues, so in the end everything tastes a bit the same. The food is ok, but the price is quite high for what you get.

I love south Indian food specially dosa. It was my 2nd visit which disappointed me more. The sambar of the dosa was very sour. We hardly could eat it so den we switched to thali. Thali was somewat dry. I would prefer more spices and gravy on it. However liked the paneer though it was too small in size. Work... More

Truly exquisite yet simple Indian food, with spices as fresh as found in the best of India. Makes ingredients in the UK look very shabby. The tandoori aloo was a particular highlight. Must visit despite low key appearances.

A valentine's date ..... the food was lovely, flavours abound and plentiful. The waiters barely spoke English and didn't understand simple requests, such as "do you have Summit beer?" and "can I have poppadom?" Lighting is too bright for 9pm sitting, needs to be dimmed for a more cosy experience Anyway, love the food so 4/5

Don't be fooled by the street view, it is much larger and nicer on the inside. A completely vegetarian restaurant, the food is good and quite reasonably priced. We had the palak paneer and a mushroom dish that were good. The juice selection is good, I enjoyed the passion fruit. Service was prompt up to the point of our order... More

If you crave for Indian fast food like pav bhaji, south indian dishes, chats etc then this is the place you should be at. Punjabi food is also nice here! One of the specialty of Nairobi is Maru bhajiya, don't forget to order it here!
