Handi's buffet is daily for lunch. Wide variety of traditional North Indian cooking with some fun street snacks like chole bhature and chaat papdi. Tandoori chicken is some of the best I've had. Samosas are also excellent, well filled, and always crispy.

We went to this restaurant when returning from Atlanta to Charlotte, and good we did. Their food taste more Indian, cooked pretty much perfect. This place is spacious, clean and had very clean restrooms. This shows they care, and it shows in the food too. They are moderately priced for the quality of food. We ordered Naan, chicken korma, paneer... More

We'd pasted up Handi several times, primarily because they advertise a daily buffet and the exterior isn't at all reflective of how impressive is the interior décor. White table cloths and napkins even for the lunch buffet. I may have had better Indian in Santa Fe, NM, of all places, but Handi is very good. So good in fact, that... More

My husband and I were visiting Greenville SC for our first time and happened by Handi Indian Cuisine on our way to have Thai Food. Since my husband had never eaten Indian food, I insisted we eat there. I ordered for us and he couldn't stop eating since it was so good. We had the Palek Paneer, Chicken Tikki Marsala,... More

There are many afternoons, our family, eats at Handi for their lunch buffet. I will not eat at any other buffets because they make me nervous. Not Handi, the owners pride themselves on delivering excellent service with an exceptional value. The food is always fresh and rotated frequently. Its also a great way to sample various dishes that you may... More

Some of the best Indian I have ever had. Every chicken dish I have had was incredible and I've heard the vegetarians ones are great as well. A little bit pricy for a casual Indian restaurant but I think it is worth it. They provide options for how spicy you want each dish which is nice because my girlfriend like's... More

A very attractive restaurant, old bare brick walls inside, charmingly decorated. A good selection of food to choose from, all freshly prepared and spiced to your individual liking. We had a lamb and a chicken dish, along with a naan. All of it delicious and exactly the right degree of spice that we had ordered. A nice change of cuisine... More

My daughter and I enjoy a good Indian food buffet and this is one of the best! They have a nice selection of dishes with plenty to satisfy vegetable and meat lovers alike. They also do a good job replenishing the food when it gets low. Enjoy it when they have goat curry and always enjoy the tandoori chicken. Have... More

My Girlfriend and I eat here at Handi atleast once a week! We have never had a bad experience in all our visits! Compared to other "Indian" restaurants in Greenville handi knows how to properly spice their food! I recommend this place to anyone looking for authentic Indian food!
