“Good Indian fare with pleasant service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

After a walk through bustling down town Kampala this restaurant is peacefully situated on the 1st floor overlooking Kampala Rd. The Northern Indian menu has most of the usual items - I had the Roganjosh which was good and my first (I think) experience of goat meat.

The service is typical of Kampala - friendly and efficient.

“Not as good as it used to be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

I think this restaurant has deteriorated. Its not nearly as good as it was a few years ago. Its certainly not the best restaurant in Kampala anymore. If you want the best Chicken Tikka Massala in town - go to the Khyber Pass restaurant at the Speke Hotel. Its great. In contrast the same dish at Haandi is very ordinary.

“Indian Mecca”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Quality and varied, a must if Indian food is what you enjoy, they rotate their staff across sister outlets in India and the UK. Location out of place to what's offered inside.

“Probably the best Indian restaurant in Kampala”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Haandi ranks amongst the best Indian restaurants in the world. An interesting menu, top quality food, open kitchen and first rate service. Location is unusual, in an office block and its fairly expensive. But you get what you pay for. We will be back.
