Nice enough. Popular enough. Huge menu. Service a bit erratic. But once you start tucking in it is worth it all. Kenyanised indian food with a few chinese twists. Very popular style with kenyan indians. All in all a great indian fast food place/restaurant of sorts.

We had Dahi Puri and Maru bajias for starters. They put Jeera in their bajias for an interesting twist. Our starters and drink were out in less than 5 minutes from ordering, and the mains (black dhall, jeera rice, kaju curry and naans) came just as we were finishing our starters.

I was invited here by a client and was skeptical about quality. I was genuinely surprised at the excellent quality of food here. The food is served quickly and hot tasty dishes keep appearing as you order.
