“Excellent Grills!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

I went to this restaurant for the very first time with Muslim friends to break their fast and it was crowded. This was an assurance of the restaurant's popularity but also a caution to book a table ahead. This also means you should prepare to shout your entire conversation :)

The menu had a wide range of meat, poultry and fish. Our choices were fresh, pleasantly spiced and well grilled. It's a place I would love to take my boys to once in a while as the serving of fries are huge, hot and crispy, just the way they would like it!

The special vimto drink was refreshing but a bit too sweet.

“The best resturant for Swahili grills”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

This restaurant is the best choice to taste Swahili / Indian grills. The meet is always fresh and the marination with the spices is perfect. Going to the restaurant is not easy because you have to book in advance or just wait till you get a free table. Take away is another option to enjoy the great taste

“Great barbeque”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Chicken tikka, paneer, Chooza chicken, Fish tikka, mutton/chicken chappati choose any and they are delicious any time! Hashmi is mostly full any day, so you always get fresh stuff. Weekends are particularly busy and on those days the restaurant decibel levels are high! All the staff from the counter to the waiters are friendly. Good food takes time to cook, so do not be in a hurry! Parking at the Ukay centre can be a hassle. Hashmi also does home delivery if you want to avoid the parking situation. It is one of my favourite restaurants.
