“Some great great dishes here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

The ambience here was quite nice. The tandoori chicken was exceptional, as were the butter paneer and rasmalai - all delicately nuanced in flavor. Carrot halwa and papadam were well above average. Portions could be a tad larger overall, but were just barely acceptable. The daal makanhi did not have the depth of flavor expected and the pista kulfi was not good at all. Wines and juices offered were quite nice. The reason I am giving this restaurant a 4 rating instead of a 5, is the rather slow and arrogant service by the waitstaff.

“Spices that you can taste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Exceptional Indian food in Kenya. Perhaps one of the very best.
There was a long wait to get a table in this popular Indian spot but well worth it.
The dishes on offer were simply out of this world and of a very high standard. You can certainly taste the spices in all the curry dishes even the very hot ones.
If you like Indian food this place will be globally ranked on your list of best of the best.
Try the spiced up chicken curry it will make you forget about the lack of atmosphere. The food here makes all the difference,
Don't miss out!

“VERY GOOD INDIAN”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

We sampled some nice dishes of Balti Indian style in this resto as well as some char grills.
The prawn curry was really good as well as the fish curry. These dishes were well spiced and really tasty. The naan was very good.
The rasmalli dessert was also great.
Atmosphere quite buzzy, one of the best Indians we had.

“A decent curry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

This is a good Indian restaurant. I have been many times and the food is of a consistently high standard. I like a very hot curry and if you ask for it you will get it. Be warned !

“Dinner at the Haandi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Went to Haandi with a group of 24 doctors and nurses from the UK here on a mission performing peadiatric heart surgery. Food was very good but thoroughly disappointed with the dessert. We had ordered Kulfi and everybody left it after taking just a spoonful.
