Now when it comes to Indian food, this is probably one of the best restaurants around, although the building is a little run down, the restaurant does well on its merit of quality food. But the price is just ridiculous. Most of the people i have been with love to get treated but will never treat as you will need... More

This is is the place to go if you love indian food. The atmosphere here is brilliant and you can see your food being cooked. They have a special selection of indian drinks and desserts too. I love the mango lassi and kulfi. The food never disappoints.

I dined here with family recently and totally enjoyed the food. Ambience was lovely. I don't recall hearing any soft music in the background but probably not necessary. The service was good and the menu was very dynamic. The bathrooms were clean too.

Haandi has become a brand name. They have a fine restaurant at THE MALL, as well as do catering for functions. They are quite organized. They have a wide variety of food and suit all taste buds - but you do need to tell them to make food mild as it can get really spicy. They serve both Veg and... More

Had dinner in this ethnic Indian restaurant and the food, ambience was excellent. Staff were very courteous and they had almost every sort of Indian veg and non-veg platter on their menu.
