“Indian food in Kenya?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This is by far the best place where you would get Indian food in Kenya. Ambiance is perfect for a leisurely lunch or dinners. Location is also good as it is right in middle of Westlands, where most of the Indian community resides in Nairobi.

Though Indian, the most of the food will be bit bland, which suites Kenyans. If you are normal Indian, who likes the food bit spicy (normal spicy), you need to specifically ask to make it super spicy.

As is the case with any other restaurant in Nairobi, food is expensive.

“TOP INDIAN RESTAURANT”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

A long established restaurant know by regulars as a top evening out at a relatively reasonable price. A favourite for business lunches and dinner and family gatherings.

“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.
