Haandi is one of the most beautiful restaurants that I have been to in my stay in Nairobi. Wonderful ambiance, and very nice setting. That being said, the chairs look beautiful but maybe are not as comfortable as I would expect. (You are eating Indian food, This is comfort food at its best!). The service when we visited was terrible... More

I visited Handi after good 5 years and whI left the ambiance has improved tremendously and quality of food is not what I experienced last time. Centrally located good parking facility, very courteous staff still would pull you back. Service is quick and efficient and the food is fresh as one can see from the glass windows where the cooks...

Like many restaurants in Nairobi, Haandi has increased its prices without really delivering better service or food. If prices increase, service and quality have to improve accordingly. This is not the case for Haandi, as most of restaurants in Nairobi. The food is still good but one has to consider if paying 200 shillings (over $2) for a simple naan... More

I don't like spicy food, but I was in a group, so I was obliged to go. The rare non spicy food was delicious, they have super tasty cocktails, the service is fast but the wifi was not working.

A most enjoyable evening was spent with family and friends at this superb eatery - I must admit though, that the entrance to the building after nightfall looks rather dodgy. However, there's secure on-site parking available in the parking garage, with direct access to the restaurant. From the friendly welcome to the excellent service, superb food quality, reasonably priced wines... More

Having happily dined at Haandi for 20 years, my latest visit disappointed. About 10 different waiters served me, three of which asked 'can I take your drink order' before I even had studied the drink menu. After a rather long wait, my fish masala arrived partly cold, hinting some pre-coking/re-heating practices. Pointing this out to the manager I was offered... More

I had been there with a European friend who unlike me is a non vegetarian. However, she was bowled over by the quality of the food that she promised to have Indian vegetarian food from here whenever she is in Nairobi again. The cuisine is authentic North Indian and you have a good selection across vegetarian and non vegetarian sections.... More

We went several times to the Haandi between 2003 and 2006, so now that we're back it was time to find out if this was still as good as it used to be. Well, congratulations to the managers, the serving team, the Chefs : they managed to maintain a high standard on all levels. Food is outstanding, service is good,... More
