Perfect experience

First time I ate in an Indian Restaurant and it was perfect. Great attendance, delicious food, good prices. I ate a Chicken Masala (perfectly spicy) drinking Taj Mahal beer (tastes great).

This restaurant serves authentic Indian food. The restaurant is located in downtown Greenville. The ambience is very nice with a nice bar. The food is very delicious and customer service is very satisfactory. The owner MR sukhdev and his wife Seema treats you like a family. We had DAL Makhani and malai kofta and naan and they were all very... More

As an ex Pat I was brought on Indian food, but my children and their mother were not. I took them to Handi's one Saturday to partake of the Buffet and they were smitten. this is some of the best food it has been my pleasure to eat. I would have reviewed earlier but wanted the rest of the Upstate... More

I had the seekh kabobs, and the spiced potato filled naan. Portion size was more than enough, and flavors of kabobs evident even with the indian hot spice i requested.

We had Sunday lunch at Handi and the buffet was very nice, a good offering of classic meals. The staff was very pleasant and attentive. The price point for the buffet was on point. We would strongly recommend Handi for good Indian food.

We visit this restaurant each time we are in Greenville. We start off with the assorted breads, which they bake in their clay oven. Love the garlic Naan. I had yellow lentils, medium spiced, and the dish was excellent. My husband tried a goat dish, spiced hot, which he also enjoyed. We will return!

I visited Handi with my boyfriend and his friend, who are both from India, so we all were a little skeptical about the food. The atmosphere was nice and upon seeing the size of the buffet, I wasn't sure if there would be anything I liked. Everything we ate was so delicious! The food was at a nice temperature, fresh,...

I visited Handi with my husband on a lazy Sunday for a lunch buffet. We were so exited about the buffet but it turned out to be hopeless.. This restaurant is in downtown Greenville and doesn't find it that difficult to attract costumers(mostly non-Indians) who may be thinking that the food they offer is authentic Indian. It lacks in quality... More

It was my first time at an Indian restaurant and so I loaded my plate with just about everything in small amounts. I was thinking at least I should like one or two of them. To my surprise, I really liked everything on the plate. Definitely check this one out.

I am always a little dubious of Indian buffets, but this one is very good. They offer a variety of dishes, including vegetarian selections, and the food seems freshly prepared. My only complaint would be that the naan had been kept under heat lamps and had gone a bit limp; I like it nice and crispy. There were also only... More
