I have visited the haandi in Nairobi and Kisumu and I loved it. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the one in Kampala made me even happier. Maybe it is the excitement of tasting food so consistly like home in a foreign land. I will definitely recomend haandi as a first stop in Kampala for really good Indian food.... More

Everyone knows Haandi in Kampala and other cities for offering an authentic indian eating experience, nothing to add to that. However, in their main restaurant in the KCB building right in city centre, they have now also opened up a lunch buffet terrace, just one floor higher then the restaurant itself, it's like a covered rooftop terrace. At 12k ugx... More

A highlight of my trip to Kampala, Haandi was recommended to me and was a pleasure to visit. Our group of ten were easily catered for by the manager/owner who recommended that he handle the starters for us and that we concentrate on the mains. He suggested six main dishes only, as that would be plenty for the group and... More

Best indian dishes in Kampala in my opinion. I love this restuarant. I hope they still keep the standard. I last visited early 2014.

Delicious food, and a nice view over one of Kampala's busiest roads while you eat. We had paneer as starters and goat with spinach as main courses - both really good!

Unfortunately missed our visit this tie due to a change of plans. In 2010 we again considered it the best Indian cuisine in Kampala in spite of the prices. Professional service too. Bright lights and white linens... don't spill a drop of the curry, it's too good to waste.
