“Nice cosy place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Haandi Indian Restaurant on Broad Street, Falls Church is a good place which I believe one of the few places in USA which brings in Indian taste to a good extent. I had gone there couple of times. Once for take out and other visit was for the lunch buffet. Quantity is good for the take outs . The dinner menu is wee bit pricier I might add compared to few other restaurants in DC . The weekend buffet was good . Replenishment was happening bit slower but the good food made it up .

“Well prepared Indian fare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

The selection of breads as appetizer was delicious, as was the lamb and spinach entree. Good to go either early or late. Otherwise it is crowded.

“Great local Indian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

When we lived in Northern Virginia, our favorite local Indian restaurant was Haandi, which is located in an unassuming shopping center in Falls Church where we often shopped. It is definitely a favorite with the locals. Now that we live in DC, where there is an abundance of Indian restaurants (one high-end one a block away), Haandi is still our first choice. The food is excellently prepared (the Gosh Patiala is superbly spiced though the biryani dishes are a little too spiced for my wife's taste), it is plentiful, the rice is delicious and the rice pudding is perfect. The quality has been consistent for at least a couple of decades, probably as long as it's been there. Highly recommend!

“Excewllent Food and Very Accomodating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Had lunch with a business associate on a weekday during lunch hour; my friend who has dietary restrictions, spoke to the staff who walked with him down the buffet line and explained the ingredients in every dish. For the flat bread brought to the table as a part of the meal, my companion had his own version, all served very promptly and at no extra cost. As is not always the case the vegetarian and non-veg dishes were NOT mixed up; each was grouped within the same buffet line. This makes a difference to some of us!

The setups were clean and all trays were full. The ambiance was as expected - white linen, clean glasses, ceramic plates and shiny, spotless flatware. The staff was attentive and yet unobtrusive during the whole meal. Best, the food was cooked well, there were a variety of fried vs. non-fried, dairy vs. non-dairy, salad greens vs. curried vegetables, and so on. I would recommend the restaurant highly. Parking was not a problem and it was free.
