Good Indian Food

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

I loved this restaurant. Possibly the best Indian food I have EVER tasted in a large, airy, elegant space. The service was also great, friendly and helpful without being intrusive. I came with two friends and we very happy. The grilled lamb chops were especially delicious.

For those who like Indian food, this is a must visit restaurant. I prefer Indian kebab houses rather than restaurants generally - and Hashmis in Nairobi is superb - but as a dining experience in authentic and beautifully prepared food, Haandi competes with the very best worldwide - Pakistan and India excepted.

I loved the food at Haandi. The service was really good and the waiters very obliging. The paneer chili that we had as a starter was excellent. I went with friends and we had a lovely time. The ambience was good too. It was really packed even on a Monday night so it might be a good idea to book... More
