Great Curries in Nariobi

Was invited there for dinner by Nairobi residents who said it was the best India restaurant in Nairobi. I was not disappointed. The food was very good and the atmosphere was enjoyable. Recommend it if you are looking for a good Indian restaurant in Nairobi

If you are looking for an International standard Indian restaurant with great food, good ambience and good service, consider Haandi. Very few restaurants allow you to see their kitchen and Haandi has see through glass kitchen, which means you could be sure of cleanliness. Food test great no mater what you order. Even if you have never eaten Indian food,... More

Sat on the balcony watching a mighty African downpour complete with lightning strikes along the street and flooded highway below. The poor waitress must have though we were mad, but it added a real atmosphere to the meal. The restaurant inside could have been an Indian restaurant anywhere in the world, a good one, but the storm added the African... More

We go to Haandi regularly and are always happy with the food. The selection is wide and the portions plenty, generally we take the leftovers home, they are yummy! The last time we went the prices had gone up a little and the amount of meet and paneer in the curries was less than usual. Looks like Haandi is trying... More

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 staff were friendly and attentive, and they graciously... More

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

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.
