Expensive yet delicious with friendly servers

Even though it's very expensive, I couldn't resist returning to Haandi because it's just so good. The atmosphere is very nice, it's clean, and the service is very friendly and professional -- great for business dinners. And of course the food is delicious.

Good Indian restaurant in Nairobi. Recently renovated. Very Ideal for large gatherings and they serve very good Veg and Non Vegeterian Dishes. Pricing is reasonable as per Nairobi Standards.

Great Indian food, vegetarian, meat, fish and seafood. It came recommended by an Indian colleagu and he was very right. Nice tree tomato juice and good South African wines too. Not very cheap but definitely value for money. Courteous maitre d' who will recognise you after just one visit.

Had a hearty lunch on Indian cuisine, which we had missed out on over the last few days. The ambience was very good. While the food quality was good; and helpings were of reasonable size, I found the resturant pricy. The meal that we paid for, I felt, should have cost us 15% to 20% less.

The hotel is located at The Mall in Westlands,it's like a hidden treasure in the old rusty Mall.The ambiance is breathtaking and the table setting is out of this world,though the table is a little bit crowded with all that cutlery.The staff are very friendly and patient.The menu has a large variety of foods both vegeterain and for meat eating...

Food is great, service is very good. The ambiance is not that interesting, looks like a hotel restaurant that has landed in an ugly mall ("The Mall"). Many vegetarian options.

Don't let the mall setting fool you (and yes, it is a bit run down)- this place is absolutely worth going to! The food is divine, the wait staff very attentive and knowledgeable and even the standard 'dry white wine' house wine was chilled perfectly and tasted good. I honestly could have gorged, taken a nap on some silk cushions... More
