Great Friday night buffet of Indian cuisine for a good price. Have been many times over many years. The breads are particularly delicious from the clay pot. Lots of choice. Always a colourful affair as many residents are wearing their sparkling outfits. It does start quite late though.

Tucked away down a back street, but very large, once you get through the gates. There's almost a maidan, between the walls, with tables set out round the edges, outside, but under cover.

The Simba Club is a venue large venue -perfect for parties- but is pretty heavy on the concrete and lacking charm. That being said, they have a great selection of Indian and local food that are well prepared and usually not very slow, either. Note that it can be hard to find a piki-piki (motorcycle taxi) outside on the road,... More

The Friday night buffet for 750 Ksh will be good for your stomach and your sole. Some of the best Indian food I've had in Kisumu! Haven't been on any other night yet though.

Go on Friday nights at 9 pm for the most amazing Indian buffet! There is a huge variety of food, all for only 750 KSH. Go very, very hungry!
