I was directed to this by my taxidriver. Having eaten at other Indian restaurants, I would say that it is pretty good. The portions are sizeable. We ordered 3 dishes--two meats and a veg plus naan and we could not finish them. There is no real view and the tables are close to each other. So don't expect ambience.

Nice decor, Average food and poor service sums up what has become of Haandi. Plenty of better Indian restaurants in town. Time for them to wake up and realise that past reputations only last so long.

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

Situated on the second floor of "The Mall" shopping centre in Westlands, Haandi isn't noticeable from the outside.

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....)
