Nairobi is famed for its fantastic Indian cuisine.

It has a large, wealthy Indian community and because of this and its British connections (people in the UK prefer Indian food over any other!) It has some of the best Indian food imaginable. There’s a good selection of superb Indian restaurants in Kenya, whether they be high class or budget restaurants. Generally, they all offer great food and a range of traditional Indian dishes such as curries and tandoori. Indian food is a popular cuisine choice for vegetarians due to the extensive menu choices including non-meat and vegan options.
