Handi restaurant was a real surprise, with fantastic Indian dishes and great service. We were really cautious about eating in Africa, but the food preparation(which you can see through a window) and final product all looked and tasted great. The restaurant was very clean and modern and good customer service from staff. Food was relatively great value for money as... More

There are 2 Haandi shops in Nairobi. I went to the one at The Mall in Westlands. The food is simply delicious, service is fine and the the prices are extremely reasonable, especially for Nairobi. Their poppadums are scrumptious and prepared in a way that I have never seen before. You could make a meal just out of those. My... More

I was in Nairobi for two days only and my client took me to Haandi. I loved the food so much. I loved lassi, aloo chley and paneer tikka. The other day when I wasn't with my client we went to handi again. We ordered paneer kadai, daal kebab and chicken biryani for my cousin. He said he didn't like... More

This is a great restaurant in a not so great mall (called, not so originally, "The Mall"). The decor is very modern and clean. You can see the chefs preparing the food through the large glass window that prominently displays the kitchen from every vantage point in the restaurant. I didn't have a large meal, but what I had was... More

Great place to grab a meal if you've got a few hours in between flights at the Nairobi airport and don't want to travel too far afield. Curries are great, and ambiance not bad (given the location in a mall) - especially the terrace. Worth the cab ride out to get some decent Indian food!

Handi in Westlands has for a longtime provided the best Indian Cuisine in Nairobi. The food is so amazing and the place is clean with a great ambiance. Anyone would love the restaurant. As usual I will always recommend it for a touch of indian taste in Kenya.

We went to the Haandi at Capital Mall and it was a great eating experience. The food was delicious and the service was very efficient.

Visited at Capital Centre Mall. Good Food but a little costlier compared to other restaurants. The waiters were confused on service in their pursuit to serve me better since there were 2 waiters & 1 captain serving me - a single Diner.
