A wonderful evening

I hadn't been to Haandi in a while, I was pleasantly surprised to find they have refurbished beautifully! The ambience was excellent and staff seemed much more motivated. Food was fantastic as always! Great evening out!

The staff were friendly and helpful. Atmosphere very relaxed and welcoming, pretty table settings and décor. The food was well spiced with a depth of flavour, and a very large range. It is one of the smartest curry houses we have ever visited, and deserves is excellent reputation. Would go there again if in Nairobi. Only £32 for us both,... More

My husband absolutely loves this restuarant, I do agree that the food is wonderful and gives you a tast of India. Their menu is extensive and there is something for everyone to choose from. I have never had a bad meal at this restuarant. The desserts are not great, so we usually do not have dessert here.

Over the years the price has become more expensive and portions smaller. Food is indeed very good - desserts are grossly overpriced, The new décor is good, service is prompt.

Nairobi has a small if excellent selection of fine eateries and Haandi is one of the best as well as most well established. Set in Westlands Mall (not Westgate Mall). In the typical style of indian restauarants all over, the decor is a little odd and somewhat out of step with the food. Service however is excellent and I especially... More

You pay for the service and the shiny restaurant, more than the food. For the money it could be better, but then it is a nice place to go for a big group as you can guarantee they'll take care of you.

The food there is truly delicious, but the reason for the low rating is the absolute robbery they pull of with the price of rice. Seriously, 500 Ksh for the rice?! That's $6! You'd think your meal comes with rice? No sir, you have to get it separately. Oh, and a nice little racket management is running: if you put... More
