The entrance to the restaurant is inside a small shopping centre and if you don't know it's there and only go by recommendations you would have no idea. The only words to describe this restaurant was WOW because the food is amazing, I've never had such an amazing Indian meal ever. If you are ever in Kampala and in need... More

Authentic Indian Cuisine at Kampala. The chicken biriyani was proper, as was the chicken tikka, chilli paneer and aloo tikka. An excellent place to go with office colleagues / with family. You can also book a room for children b'rday party (a bit noisy for the other patrons - but then I don't mind children making noise)... :)

The food was absolutely fantastic and one of the best Indian's I have ever tried. I would however say that the signs indicating the hotness of... More

Food was great especially goat ribs and chicken Tikka Masala with nice Veg rice and chease Nan. Enjoyed our selves. However place closes at 10:00pm so you have to be there early no late dinners.

I have eaten around in Kampala, but Handi is my favourite. For the food, but not the location. Cannot miss every time I visit.

I have eaten at Haandi since 1997 and far to many times to remember and over the years the food has been consistent. But was just back a week ago and .... it was surely not the same. I saw some smaller changes on the menu and some of my favorites were no longer there. The place was almost empty... More
