“Delicious food, rip-off rice, and please be fair to the waiters”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

The food there is truly delicious, but the reason for the low rating is the absolute robbery they pull of with the price of rice. Seriously, 500 Ksh for the rice?! That's $6! You'd think your meal comes with rice? No sir, you have to get it separately.
Oh, and a nice little racket management is running: if you put the tip on your credit card, the servers will not see a dime of it! So, please, be kind, tip your servers in cash separately.

“Great surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Handi restaurant was a real surprise, with fantastic Indian dishes and great service. We were really cautious about eating in Africa, but the food preparation(which you can see through a window) and final product all looked and tasted great. The restaurant was very clean and modern and good customer service from staff. Food was relatively great value for money as well.

“Best Curry In Kenya”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

There are 2 Haandi shops in Nairobi. I went to the one at The Mall in Westlands. The food is simply delicious, service is fine and the the prices are extremely reasonable, especially for Nairobi.

Their poppadums are scrumptious and prepared in a way that I have never seen before. You could make a meal just out of those. My favourite dish was their Rogan Josh....starting to salivate as I write this..Hmmmm

Go see for yourself.
