“Pamper your palete at Haandi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

Haandi is one of the finest Indian restaurants in Kampala. It is easily accessible and the ambiance is great. I've joined many Saturday evenings at Haandi indulging in north Indian cuisine and tandoori dishes.
The starters are excellent especially the chicken chur chur.
Old Hindi instrumental music is played softly in the background.
I'd say try it out, it's great.

“Brilliant central location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

Stumbled across this restaurant whilst looking for another, but well worth the visit!
Situated on a roof top in Garden City, you can sit outside or under cover (but with the sides open, so it still feels like you get the outside ambience.)
Prices exclude VAT!
Staff are polite and helpful.
This restaurant is visited by the Indian community in Kampala, which is a good indication of the quality/authenticity.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

The atmosphere of the restaurant is maybe not all that but the food is great. Large choice for vegetarians and meat eaters. good service. I have been here many times with various parties and it's always good. Try the methi chicken curry!

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

The aesthetics of the restaurant do not match the fantastic meal and service we received.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who appreciates an authentic Indian dish

“Haandi heavenly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

I've always held that Kampala has Indian food to rival London, and Haandi is the front-runner. Whenever I travel there, Haandi is a welcome, centrally located retreat from the noisy streets. When I was asked at work to host a 100-person dinner in Kampala, I immediately recommended Haandi, and manager Ashok was right there to see that it all went smoothly on the garden terrace. He and his helpful staff pulled out all the stops to make our event a success. I ate there 4 more times in the next 2 weeks! I've never had a dish I didn't like. Try the mint pineapple juice!
