First, it is no longer Haandi. It is Kadhai at 7905 Norfolk, as others have mentioned. But the food is still terrific. Been there many, many times and have never had a second-class meal. The service is terrific too.

This is a neighborhood Indian restsurant. The atmosphere is so so and the food is average, more Americanized Indian than really authentic. Nothing unusual on the menu. There are better close by.

Thank you to the other reviewers who noted the name and address change. Tripadvisor should make the switch. We had the Shrimp Jalfrezi and the Lamb Saag, with Onion Kulcha bread. Excellent. We asked for it medium spicy - which can mean a lot of different things in different restaurants and it came out at a spice level that I... More

We went to this restaurant for lunch and had the buffet. The food was excellent and the price was reasonable at ~$12. Wide selection of well-prepared food choices. The staff was friendly. It was somewhat crowded but that is just because it is a good choice for lunch.

First, let me agree with the most recent review. Both the name and address of this restaurant have changed. It is now KADHAI (not Kandhai). I confirmed this with the waiter. The other restaurant no longer exists and has been replaced by this one at a new location. I am including a new photo. Second, yes, this is a 5... More

I found this restaurant using the TripAdvisor app and imagine my surprise and bewilderment when this restaurant not only changed its location, but its name! It's now Kandhai at 7905 Norfolk Ave., right across from Rock Bottom Brewery. I had to call the restaurant a few times to find the location! But they were extremely helpful. We ordered the chicken...

Haandi restaurant offers great Indian food. This is one of the best Indian food that I ever had. I recommend that you call ahead if you are planning on going in the evenings. The waiting can be quite long, but it is worth it. The decor is so hot, but the food yammmy! Go for it! Haandi 4904 Fairmont Ave,... More

The restaurant has moved a block away to 7905 Norfolk Avenue, Bethesda, with a new name. Same great Indian cuisine, freshly prepared, wonderful spices and flavors, and a few new items on the menu. Service is pleasant and efficient.

We love this restaurant. The food is authentic and tasty and always fresh. The naan is exceptional. The servers are always attentive. I know the name has changed but the food remains delicious.

I love this restaurant but we went to their new location last night, and they changed the name. According to an employee the owner kept a Virginia location and sold off the Bethesda, and he took the name. It's Kaldea or something. Still great food; love the salmon tandoori, and aloo gobi and lamb korma.
