We didn't know what to expect, but upon arrival we were very pleased. The service was fantastic and the food was even better. A dinner for 3 with 2 starters 2 bottles of wine and 3 entrees was 9500Ksh. The owner even came out to greet us and see how we were enjoying our meal. I would go back again... More

If you like Indian food, then you will like Haandi. The ambience is amazing. The waiters are friendly. The food is just the right amount of spicy and nicely done. However, you pay through the nose. That would be the only thing I didn't like so much.

Was there yesterday and choice it due to the high rating it got in Eatout and Tripadvisor sites. The service, ambiance and food were indeed good. Though the only thing I didn't like was Haandi's value for money. The food is over priced in relation to the portion on servings I received and amount I paid, I feel I should... More

My favourite Indian Restaurant in Nairobi...completely refurbished a year or two ago with a nice modern decor...they have still maintained a soundproof glass partition between the seating area and the kitchen - one can see the chefs busy at work cooking your meals fresh! Great menu and very delicious food. A joy to dine at this restaurant.

Located slightly outside the city center, this restaurant had been recommended to us by a very fine couple during our trip back to Nairobi from Mara. Indeed, the lady was right . We went to this restaurant for dinner the last evening we had in Nairobi and I am certainly glad we did go . The setting was very pleasant... More

Very tasteful Indian cuisine. Friendly and good recommendations to those which are not used to hot meals. Overall a good experience. If I lived in Nairobi I would return.

This is a great Indian restaurant- not just for Nairobi but it's worthy of the international stage. The service is good, despite a peculiarity, and the food excellent. There is a good ambiance, though not really suitable for children. There was a nice mixed crowd enjoying the treat that is Haandi's. The wine list was more than adequate. But it... More

i have been to handi since 2008 and have seen many indian restaurants coming and going in nairobi but overall its still the best at least it not disappoints the general expectation of guests. i admire this place mainly because of accompaniments they are serving along with food while other places ignore the value of accompaniments with indian meals.
