Bhandini is a good Indian restaurant in Nairobi CBD. Slightly expensive , but quality is good; and it is convenient for in-house guests.

The food quality is not too good and they don't have a buffet dinner too. The ambience I'd gud if food is not the first choice place to visit.

Having negotiated your way through the various levels of security into the hotel and walked past the noisy lobby crowded with Europeans you arrive at this pleasantly peaceful restaurant to enjoy a really pleasant well presented Indian a la carte menu and attentive service. About £25 pp including drinks.

The restaurant has a live kitchen for you to enjoy the food before it is served, also the people are dressed in indian clothes to give it a more indian feeling. Nice options of veg on demand.
