Having happily dined at Haandi for 20 years, my latest visit disappointed. About 10 different waiters served me, three of which asked 'can I take your drink order' before I even had studied the drink menu. After a rather long wait, my fish masala arrived partly cold, hinting some pre-coking/re-heating practices. Pointing this out to the manager I was offered... More

I had been there with a European friend who unlike me is a non vegetarian. However, she was bowled over by the quality of the food that she promised to have Indian vegetarian food from here whenever she is in Nairobi again. The cuisine is authentic North Indian and you have a good selection across vegetarian and non vegetarian sections.... More

We went several times to the Haandi between 2003 and 2006, so now that we're back it was time to find out if this was still as good as it used to be. Well, congratulations to the managers, the serving team, the Chefs : they managed to maintain a high standard on all levels. Food is outstanding, service is good,... More

Conveniently situated at Westlands Mall, this restaurant is my favourite for Indian cuisine in Nairobi. Staff are welcoming and attentive, and an updated menu offering a wide choice of meals, particularly fish and chicken dishes, features a variety of mild to spicy hot to suit your taste. Traffic in this area is horrendous during the day, but easier in the... More

I love Indian food and this restaurant is one of the few in Nairobi that gets it. It's good for both lunches and dinners.

Great place to have Indian food. Taste is yummy and reasonably priced. Close to Kempinski and in the city centre.

Not the cheapest but this is possibly the best Indian restaurant in Nairobi, I say that guardedly since I have not been to all of them. It is most certainly the best so far and our two Indian colleagues [vegetarian] agreed. Ambience clean and classy. The food is fresh and non greasy, wine selection ok. Large selection of dishes which... More

Dark ambience and high prices. The food is great but in 2 minutes walking distance across the road you will find Open House ... Worth the walk!
