Have visited more times than I care to think about. Great selection of dishes from mild to lava strength. If something you want isn't on the menu they will do their best to accommodate you. Will be there again soon!

This was my 2nd visit to Haandi and I quite enjoyed the first visit but i think that was because i was seated away from the waiters service station near the front door. I had a seat opposite this time The waiters were totally inattentive to the customers and clueless. The food was coming from the kitchen and placed at... More

Not to be scared about the location, in the middle of a shopping center, the restaurant is located after a stairway. Once you are in you will have a glimpse in the unique atmosphere of the indian kitchen. hte service is quick, the prices moderate and the food authentique. From the Palak Paner, to the curries to the naan-breads everything... More

Do not be deceived by the location of this restaurant inside a shopping mall. We had excellent lamb curry, samosas, and mince lamb rolls. Of course we had lovely Indian bread (nams). They also have a quite decent and affordable wine list.

Sit down at Haandi, look around - and spot all the local Indians at other tables - that should pretty much tell you all you need to know. Haandi dishes are beautifully prepared, a wonderful selection of Indian food, ingredients fresh - wonderful experience.

After a 8 day safari in the Kenyan Savannah (Maasai Mara), our group wanted to have a real Indian lunch. Our guide took us to Haandi. The ambience of the restaurant was great and we had a very good Punjabi style food. I will definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Nairobi, Kenya.

The food is amazing. Their service is really good and they are really fast. They have a good customer service. But they are a little bit expensive compared to other restaurants. In their menu they should have an option where by quantity served for one person. So that food is not gone to waste.

A good Indian restaurant, something that is not easy to find outside the UK (and all too often disappointing in the UK). I would definitely rate Haandi much higher than newer competitors that have recently opened in other shopping malls in Nairobi. A good menu, and well prepared. Curiously, this restaurant does have a link with the back of beyond... More

Very good food, tasty, subtle sauces and reasonable quantities. Staff are friendly and helpful, and the restaurant itself is a pleasant place to be. Most of the diners were Indian when I ate there - and that says a lot about its authenticity. The location is in a run-down shopping mall, but you wouldn't know it after you walk into... More
