Consistently excellent Indian food

The Handi is our favorite Indian restaurant in the upstate of South Carolina. Conveniently located on Main St in Greenville, we have yet to be disappointed after many visits during the four years we have lived in the area.

I visited this restaurant with a good friend who had not eaten much Indian cuisine before. The staff were polite and explained about the different flavour and spice options allowing my friend to really find a dish to suit her palate. The portion sizes were very generous: be careful not to over-order. The balance of flavours was excellent and food... More

Very good Indian food. Great lamb dishes and tandoori oven dishes. Friendly service. Close to the Peace Center so it's a great destination before a show. In the downtown Greenville area. Nice place to walk around after dinner.

After walking along beautiful Main Street in downtown Greenville, we decided to try Handi Indian Cuisine and we are so thankful that we did! The food is excellent! Our server was so kind and welcoming. The atmosphere is sophisticated and cozy.... A great dinner venue. The restaurant is so clean and well designed. We LOVED Handi and we will definitely... More

Handi gets an “A’” in our grade book and we not only recommend it, we fully intend to revisit them on our next trip to Greenville. It’s reserved and quiet atmosphere is equally suitable for formal dining or business lunches. The Multigatwany soup was relatively mild and suitable for most palates, though some might request the chef “spice it up”... More

My husband and I LOVE Indian food. We relocated to the Greenville area from California two years ago. We have eaten at Saffron Indian Cuisine several times and have enjoyed each meal ... but do not enjoy the traffic on that section of Woodruff. When I learned that Handi had Indian food downtown I was very excited. My first visit... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the lunch buffet at this handsome, quiet Indian restaurant. For $9.00 you get "the full Monty" of rice, chicken dishes, meatballs in sauce, saag, sauteed cabbage, pakoras, chutneys, salads, raita, naan, etc. The atmosphere is quiet and the service is correct. I have eaten in quite a few authentic Indian restaurants and I cook Indian... More

My husband and I traveled to Greenville, SC just to get away from a long work week. We decided to try something new so we chose Handi Indian Cuisine! We went the through the buffet and tried small portions of the selections. The rice and the naan was probably the best thing we ate. We both decided to try the... More

I went here after seriously craving Indian food all morning. It hit the spot and was exactly what I wanted! Got the lunch buffet, and for $8.95 they had a great selection of both meat and vegetarian options, as well as cold and hot options. Particularly enjoyed the tikka masala and samosas. Not sure why this place is not more... More

We were able to enjoy outside dining on a temperate summer evening while visiting in Greenville . We eat Indian food on the regular and therefore thought ourselves to be good critics of this restaurant as first time diners. Party of 3; each enjoyed our selections emensely. Food was fresh, plentiful, nicely presented, and most importantly delicious! It is easy... More
