Excellent Indian food, nice atmosphere, great service

At the Handee in Westlands, we had a delicious meal of vegetarian dishes and various kinds of Naan, as well as a starter that was apparently introduced to the menu 6 months earlier. Service was fairly fast. The atmosphere is very nice (quite fancy, actually) despite being located in a mall. The... read more

I was there for Sunday lunch in March 2015.I was not wowed by the service which was slow and unappreciative.The food is over priced and no different from other affordable Indian restaurants in Nairobi, there is nothing spectacular about it.The least they could do is provide generous portions for those prices.I would not recommend it to anyone who would want...

Even after 40 years of eating Indian food in restaurants, in Indian homes, in old colonial clubs ('the Sunday curry'), and a bout of learning some Indian cooking myself from a local chef, I still cannot top the Haandi. Typically, in the middle range of restaurant, the spice combinations, which should be quite different for each dish, seem blend into... More

The best Indian food in nairobi. The place is nice and clean. The staff is friendly and van advise you if you are not familiar with indian food. Chicken biriani is always my favorite.

Good ambiance and great food, though while going for the place you would think it may not be...slow service but the test and quality of the food was very good...enjoyed all dishes and enough choice of Veg and non veg.

They serve pretty good vegetarian and Indian food. Never a doubt about the quality of the food. Taste wise, they are always up to the mark and have been maintaining that for a good deal of time now.

Visited this restaurant in Nairobi after many years. Other than the plush interior I would not be keen on recommend this place. Priced out of this world - they do not provide food quality that matches the price for sure. Food was served cold (not to forget the overpriced bit) and they made mistakes with our order which were confirmed... More

I booked at the Haandi a business dinner and my colleagues were well impressed. We let the waiter choose for us and ate a mix of curries, barbecued spiced meat, naan and rice. All well prepared and presented.

My friends and I ate at Haandi on a Friday evening. First impressions as soon as we walked in were wow..a beautifully done restaurant, great décor and atmosphere. We ordered some masala papadums to start which were tasty, but a little too oily. The paneer starter was delivered to us cold, and for the price we paid we were not... More

Watch your bags and wallets. Although the food was 10 out of 10 my fiancé's bag was stolen. We are 100% sure at least one of the workers within the hotel were working with whomever stole our bag. Management may not have been aware but this was totally an inside job. This is referring to Haandi's indian restaurant in West... More
