Travelling from Middle East (non veg is staple diet) to Africa ( land of animals)... for a converted vegetarian by choice... I was wondering what would be my culinary experience at Kenya. First stop at Nairobi, via Dubai. By evening, I was already missing my dosa-chutney/moong dal fry/alu gobi, etc. Thanks to Lonely Planet, we decided on Haandi. Travel agent... More

At first I was skeptical b/c it is located in a mall and because on arrival we were made to wait 30 minutes for a table in an empty restaurant, apparently they were having a staff meeting. Once our waiter arrived though he was attentive and nice. Our food was WONDERFUL! We ordered a lamb, a chicken, and a seafood... More

Haandi used to be the best place to enjoy Indian cuisine in Nairobi but has become the victim of its success. Unless of course inflated prices are the result of their success. Today the food is not any better than most Indian restaurants in the area, the service is good and the ambiance average. Better to try cheaper alternatives like... More

Really enjoyed this restaurant. Its in a shopping centre but do not be put off. Its got to be one of the best Indian Restaurant's I have eaten at and I know my Indian (excuse the boast). Service was pleasant, decor just fine and great value for money. Food was fabulous.

Having been visiting Haandi for over 15 years, the concept, service and food has not changed. In the case of Haandi, this is a good thing because they have always served excellent North Indian Food. The food is heavy, and not something you would eat regularly, but a special treat, it is truly worth visiting. They have tasty tandoor's (food... More

I visitied Haandi in June 08 and this place serves mouth watering Indian cuisine in Nairobi and the service is efficient too. I also enjoyed the Daawa drink (Vodka with lemon and honey). Surprised to see the place packed with people. I definitely recommend it to people looking for curry and Indian food. Looking forward to my next visit later... More
