My Girlfriend and I eat here at Handi atleast once a week! We have never had a bad experience in all our visits! Compared to other "Indian" restaurants in Greenville handi knows how to properly spice their food! I recommend this place to anyone looking for authentic Indian food!

We happened upon Handi soon before they closed for lunch but the owners graciously allowed us to come in and eat from the buffet. Nice selection including chicken tikka masala (my personal favorite) and a very nice rice pudding. There wasn't any naan when we arrived but they made more and brought it to our table. Very attentive and kind... More

This was chosen for a family reunion about 9 of us in total for lunch. We choose the buffet. Selection was limited but adequate. Could have had more paneer in the paneer dish. The Samosas were excellent. I probably ate too much as I skipped dinner in the evening!

Wonderful service and great food located in beautiful downtown Greenville. We moved to the area 6 months ago and have eaten here numerous times. So many delightful dishes to try from the lamb to vegetable entries. Love them all! And very affordable!

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).

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
