Had food twice here recently - Once a takeaway lunch (chicken skewers with Naan bread) and the second time for dinner (Chicken tikka, poussin chicken, Chooza chicken with chips,naans etc). Thoroughly enjoyed the food which was tasty and made to order - efficient and indifferent service - Would I come here again ?? - Definitely!! says it all.......

During my visit to Nairobi, a business partner recommended hashmi's being a must visit barbecue place in town and insisted to invite us there . The place is busy although it was a Wednesday night. Food is not bad yet fries were too greasy, but the overall experience was not up to my expectations due to the restaurant shape, the... More

The tikka and the kebabs are spicy, tender and sumptous. A wash down with the tangerine juice topz the day. The service is family oriented. The ambience simple yet alluring

Chooza! Everyone loves that stuff. The juice is watery though. They're very stingy with chooza sauce when you order takeaway so it's better to eat there. Also, it's not better than their Mombasa branch.

Best bbq in Nairobi. They have been consistent worth their quality for almost 2 decades! Expect a long w wait on the weekend as they don't take bookings and it's on a first come first serve basis..

This is a great restaurant if you are looking for delicious Indian BBQ food and not for the ambiance. The choice of menu is limited but excellent and be prepared to line up on busy evenings such as Friday to Sunday as it is very popular with the residents....tells you how good it must be if any restaurant is popular...
