Best Indian Food in NBO

In my opinion the best Indian food in Nairobi. I love the garlic mushrooms. If you like Indian food, should try this.

I eat at Haandi's more than any other restaurant in Nairobi - it's consistently excellent. The service is good, and they are redecorating in stages (as of March-April 2013) which hopefully will brighten a slightly dull/stuffy interior. The (glassed-off) view into the kitchen is nice. Haandi's starts you off with the KenIndian-customary crudités with sauces/chutneys, and have a unique hot-towel... More

Went there for dinner with the family and the service was first-class. The food was excellent and the staff could not have been better. We all truly enjoyed our night out!

It's been around for years, and a must for Indian food lovers. The Chicken Tikka Masala is fantastic as well as the wide variety of other indian options on the menu.

Large variety of indian dishes cooked at perfection. As many time you go, as many times you enjoy and leave fulfilled. The kitchen visible from the restaurant is a spectacle in itself. Better to make bookings otherwise you might just end a dream before it starts!

My fiance and I were spending our first night in Nairobi, we ventured out from our hotel and after entering the Mall we just happened to see the Haandi restaurant. Indian is one of my fiance's favorites so we decided to try it, not knowing anything about the place. We were a little unsure at first because there was only... More

This along with Diamond Plaza in Nairobi are some of the best Indian food around. If you love Indian food this is the place to go. The food literally melts in your mouth. One of my favorite Nairobi places to eat.

This is by far the best place where you would get Indian food in Kenya. Ambiance is perfect for a leisurely lunch or dinners. Location is also good as it is right in middle of Westlands, where most of the Indian community resides in Nairobi. Though Indian, the most of the food will be bit bland, which suites Kenyans. If...

A long established restaurant know by regulars as a top evening out at a relatively reasonable price. A favourite for business lunches and dinner and family gatherings.
