“If you have a layover at the Nairobi Airport drive here for dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We had a 6 hour layover at the Nairobi airport. Faced with the bleak food choices at the airport we went to Haandi for dinner. It was well worth the trip. The food is excellent as was the service. Our only complaint is that we could not take the leftovers with us to eat on the plane! The hostess told us the restaurant is negotiating to open a site at the airport. If so I hope the food served there is as good as at this restaurant.

For Indian Food lovers, Haandi is an excellent choice. The waiters will be handy to take up your order and expalin to you the various food types to the first timers. Excellent food as well excellent services and ideal for the whole family as well as business.

“Charming and friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Most first nights after 24 hours of travel are terrible at best....but making it to Haandi put this night in a whole new category. This charmer is located in a small shopping mall which was initially a concern....but I'm so glad we followed a recommendation and went out for dinner.
The food was delicious and made to order - spices included. The breads were fabulous. There was lots of activity and happy people enjoying everything from family meals to couples get aways. All seemed to be happy to have found this spot.

Great Dishes! And they can temper the spice for wimps like me while retaining a good amount of flavor
