We went several times to the Haandi between 2003 and 2006, so now that we're back it was time to find out if this was still as good as it used to be. Well, congratulations to the managers, the serving team, the Chefs : they managed to maintain a high standard on all levels. Food is outstanding, service is good,... More

Conveniently situated at Westlands Mall, this restaurant is my favourite for Indian cuisine in Nairobi. Staff are welcoming and attentive, and an updated menu offering a wide choice of meals, particularly fish and chicken dishes, features a variety of mild to spicy hot to suit your taste. Traffic in this area is horrendous during the day, but easier in the... More

I love Indian food and this restaurant is one of the few in Nairobi that gets it. It's good for both lunches and dinners.

Great tasty food, good service but overly expensive. Love to watch the chefs in the open kitchen working with the tandoor and sauces

Great place to have Indian food. Taste is yummy and reasonably priced. Close to Kempinski and in the city centre.

Not the cheapest but this is possibly the best Indian restaurant in Nairobi, I say that guardedly since I have not been to all of them. It is most certainly the best so far and our two Indian colleagues [vegetarian] agreed. Ambience clean and classy. The food is fresh and non greasy, wine selection ok. Large selection of dishes which... More

Dark ambience and high prices. The food is great but in 2 minutes walking distance across the road you will find Open House ... Worth the walk!

Food was good. Lots of variety in starters and mains. service can be a bit slow but well worth it. Staff are very friendly. Great for large groups as well as intimate dinners too. very cost effective by my standards. loved it. Visit a lot so cannot be restricted to when did you visit.

I think it is the best Indian restaurant in nairobi, dish sizes are large, service is nice and the place is well ordered, the only cone is that it's expensive
