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

Handi has good food! Ask anyone in Nairobi and they will concur. A great place to celbrate something... anything. Te setting is lovely, the stuff is attentive, the menu is amazing. The assorted nans are the best I have ever had. The black lentils are sublime, the roasted meat dishes delightfull, the curries are wonderfull. My only observation is that... 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

We had a dinner at Haandi and found it really good Indian food. The service at that evening was attentive and friendly and the quality of food was convincing. The atmosphere at the restaurant was lacking behind the food. Maybe that was due to the fact, that the restaurant at that evening was almost empty (end of the month). But... More

Having moved to nairobi and seeing review in lonely planet gave it a go. Is ordinary, poor service, and very ordinary Indian food. There is nothing special about this. The only thing that feels authentic is the rude Indian managers barking at their wait staff.. Do not bother. Want to eat decent Indian food go to saffron in yaya.. Although... More

This one is fine if you are indian but I don't really like it to much. There is nothing to complain about but also nothing to compliment about. Somehow it lacks caracter. Food is not bad and not good so in the end you feel like you went to the canteen at work. if you love indian food I think... More

We wouldn't have known about Haandi if not for a chance encounter with an American woman working for Flying Doctors who heard us trying to figure out where in Nairobi to eat. Were we lucky. Haandi, a lovely looking restaurant, located in a nondescript mall, and has food that is delicious, excellent to look at, and inexpensive. Our Kenyan friend... More
