Based on an online review by a popular travel section, I suggested Haandi to a friend who is currently working in Nairobi. With a very South African - and northern hemisphere perspective - my approach to the Mall in Westlands was mildly questioning. The restaurant, like most places in Nairobi is beyond expectation. The staff are typical to Kenya -... More

Haandi has a great atmosphere and wonderful staff. We started with mild/spicy chicken and fish skewers and papadam with chilli sauce - absolutely amazing. Then we had the butter chicken, rice, lamb and naan bread. This really is a hidden gem in Nairobi, would definitely recommend to anyone travelling in the area.

I visited the Haandi restaurant in Nairobi for lunchtime. The service was fast and efficient, the food was delicious with great attention to detail from the chefs - onion seeds and finely chopped coriander finishing the dishes being particularly noticeable. I would definitely recommend and would return next time I am in Nairobi.

Good Indian restaurant. And full stop. Nothing special and nothing bad. Restaurant serves good food tasty but it hasn't got climate or mood to enjoy the evening or a dish.

Most authentic north Indian restaurant in Nairobi. The food was great - must try the lamb chops and the butter chicken. We were pleasantly surprised both by how great the food was but also how prompt the service was. Nice ambience. This is surely going to be my regular go to restaurant when it comes to Indian cuisine. Very reasonable... More

I had my first roti experience at Haandi's. I liked the service and the manner in which the duty supervisor took to ensure that we were satisfied with the service and that we were served on time. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to have a taste of Indian cuisine
