Great Indian Food

You will not feel that you are not in India. Everything served are from something like Pind Baluchi in India. Their laccha paratha and garlic naans were amazing. Must visit place for people who like to eat north Indian food.

If you want to taste authentic Indian food in Kenya, then this is the place. We had a mix grill starter for 2, it was well cooked and the spices were just right. The nan bread was the best I had outside Birmingham:-).

Shocked by how good everything was. Lamb chops were insane, put them in your face hole. Mango lassi was super fresh. Great service.

Good Ambiance and great food. It is a bit expensive compared to the other Indian Restaurants but the quality of food makes up for it.

Was invited there for dinner by Nairobi residents who said it was the best India restaurant in Nairobi. I was not disappointed. The food was very good and the atmosphere was enjoyable. Recommend it if you are looking for a good Indian restaurant in Nairobi

If you are looking for an International standard Indian restaurant with great food, good ambience and good service, consider Haandi.

Even if you have never eaten Indian food,... More

Sat on the balcony watching a mighty African downpour complete with lightning strikes along the street and flooded highway below. The poor waitress must have though we were mad, but it added a real atmosphere to the meal. The restaurant inside could have been an Indian restaurant anywhere in the world, a good one, but the storm added the African... More

We go to Haandi regularly and are always happy with the food. The selection is wide and the portions plenty, generally we take the leftovers home, they are yummy! The last time we went the prices had gone up a little and the amount of meet and paneer in the curries was less than usual. Looks like Haandi is trying... More

At the Handee in Westlands, we had a delicious meal of vegetarian dishes and various kinds of Naan, as well as a starter that was apparently introduced to the menu 6 months earlier. Service was fairly fast. The atmosphere is very nice (quite fancy, actually) despite being located in a mall. The staff were friendly and attentive, and they graciously... More
