The food is very good and served quickly and efficiently. Beware of portion sizes which are quite big!

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

I flatter myself that I'm a reasonably good judge of Indian food having grown-up in Bradford and Leeds and I was genuinely impressed with the quality of the food on offer. All was well with the meals that myself and 3 colleagues ordered and we had a great time. Normal restaurant criteria were also good; the service was attentive without... More

My wife and I are in agreement that this was some of the best Indian food we have ever eaten, and that includes a couple of Michelin starred restaurants in London and New York. Superb sauces, subtle but serious spices, excellent service. Not as fancy, of course, as a Michelin crowned restaurant has to be, but the food itself was... More

I have spent 3 years in India and eaten in literally hundreds of Indian restaurants all over the world: the Haandi offers superb North Indian Food, excellent choice and service. In case you really like authentic Indian food this restaurant is a must. One of the best Indians I have been to.

This restaurant came highly recommended and it did not disappoint. It is on the second floor of a rather passed its prime shopping center that is deserted at night. Once you walk into Haandi, however, the atmosphere completely changes. The restaurant is beautiful and the service is impeccable. Their food and drinks are absolutely delicious, some of the best if... More
