Some of the best food i have ever had

I love Indian food, and eat it all the time. This is probably some of the best Indian food i have had in years. The staff is also very helpful, and the wine list has a good range of options.

I haven't had this good Indian food in years. Had a great mix of dishes, was perfect for a large group (12) and the quality was amazing.

Excellent food and ambience. Staff are friendly. Food is a bit pricy but delicious. Ample parking though there's a fee by the hour.

The decor of the mall Haandi is situated in is outdated and so is the restaurant itself. To be fair I didn't like the cuisine but it is North Indian cuisine rather than South Indian - so my rating does not reflect my preferences but the value for money and service. The waiter was not very friendly and we didn't... More

One of the best places to enjoy a very good Indian food. The overall look of of the place is not the best of the best but the food worth it. Try the masala padam, yummy

Great meal as always but getting far too costly for what it is. A single (small) portion of rice is 600 / 650 KES, plain fried poppadoms are 200 KES EACH!! The food is excellent though and worth the trip (if you stay off the small side dishes). One thing I never understood about this menu, there are no veg... More

Haandi is one of the most beautiful restaurants that I have been to in my stay in Nairobi. Wonderful ambiance, and very nice setting. That being said, the chairs look beautiful but maybe are not as comfortable as I would expect. (You are eating Indian food, This is comfort food at its best!). The service when we visited was terrible... More

I visited Handi after good 5 years and whI left the ambiance has improved tremendously and quality of food is not what I experienced last time. Centrally located good parking facility, very courteous staff still would pull you back. Service is quick and efficient and the food is fresh as one can see from the glass windows where the cooks...

Like many restaurants in Nairobi, Haandi has increased its prices without really delivering better service or food. If prices increase, service and quality have to improve accordingly. This is not the case for Haandi, as most of restaurants in Nairobi. The food is still good but one has to consider if paying 200 shillings (over $2) for a simple naan... More
