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.

You could never go wrong with Hashmi's. The restaurant has the best barbecue treats and better yet - it will not hurt your pocket! Try the chicken tikka, lamb, the kebabs. Food takes about 10 - 15 mins to get ready.. oh and they have very nice tangerine juice all year round! The restaurant is popular and doesn't allow you... More

For those BBQ and grill lovers this is the best place to be in Nairobi. Located in the heart of westlands at Ukay centre this place serves delicacies that can be compared to none in Nairobi. Has a few vegetarian options on the menu as that is the only thing my parents can order when we go there. The chooza... More

if you love your meat charcoal grilled or in a clay oven then this is your place. Nothing too fancy about the ambience, but if this is your kind of food then this is your place. The good thing is that they ask you the level of spice you want in your food.

I was taken there by a friend and we had the chicken tikka, with French fries and a buttered naan. Definitely one of the best desi BBQ places I have been to. I will definitely go there again on the next trip.
