I noticed that many of the patrons were Indian. That was a pretty good endorsement. Not amazing ambience, but great, authentic food.

Superb food made up for the so-so service. A real taste of India with a unique African flavor.

Situated on the second floor of "The Mall" shopping centre in Westlands, Haandi isn't noticeable from the outside. However, if you have done any reading online or in Kenya guidebooks, you will definitely find it in the top 5 restaurants to visit in Nairobi and not without good reason (reservations are recommended). The restaurant has a great layout and the... More

I am not Indian....but I am well travelled and know Indian cuisine. This is one of my favourite Indian restaurants in the world....really in my mind as good as the best ones zoo can find in London (...and for a fraction of the price....) I strongly recommend going out with a group of people....the Haandi concept is one of ordering... More

A fantastic place to enjoy Indian cuisine at it's best - and it (Haandi) all started in Nairobi - now it is a top & successful Indian Restaurant in London. The staff and service is excellent and the standard has never waivered since my first visit in 1996. It's always full of Indians - somewhat reassuring. Well worth a visit... More

This was the best Indian food (outside of India) I have EVER had. The naan was soft and fluffy, the curries were colorful and aromatic, the decor was delightful. The food from the chicken tikka was high quality, well marinated and adequately spiced. The keema was finger licking good. The rice was fragrant. The desserts were full of guilt. But... More

I have visited Indian style restaurants in Australia, UK, Ireland, and more recently in the Indian State of Andhra Pradesh. During the past few months, I have made several visits to the Haandi restaurant in Westlands Mall and the quality of the food there is as good as any Indian food I have tasted anywhere. The prices are very reasonable... More
