I happen to visit this place for a lunch buffet but totally disappointed with the quality and variety of food. Food was not hot too. prices were also high as compared to other Indian restaurant.

With all of the trendy competition in the Greenville restaurant scene these days, it is understandable that an ethnic eatery such as this may be looked over. However, if you have the opportunity to dine here, do NOT pass it by! It was superb...can't wait to go again! We were here for dinner, but I think the lunch buffet may... More

OK food Nothing great. Vegetarian varieties are limited and not to taste. Service was a bit slow as the staff were very few.

My son and I enjoyed a great dinner at Handis. We had an app then we each got a dinner. When she asked how I wanted I said 'hot'. That generally gets me medium or mild. Well I must say it was hot and delicious. Atmosphere is nice and clean too.

Sunday, we always - ALWAYS- eat out. We usually stay in Greenville as it is a lovely city with many different cuisines available. Today my husband decides we need to try the Indian Cuisine. I am not crazy for this as I am not a curry fan. We stopped by perused the menu and then was seated. The service was... More

I enjoyed our visit. This was the only restaurant we have not tried downtown because of its mixed reviews. It wasn't until we crossed paths with one of our friends leaving the restaurant and she told us she ate there once a week so we decided to try it for Sunday lunch. It opens at 11:30 and we arrived at... More

We drove into downtown Greenville, parked, I looked up and there it was! I love Indian food but wasn't sure if my more conservative friends would like it. They agreed to try and we left raving how delicious everything had been. Nothing was spicy hot. Some were a bit spicy but this can be toned down with the cold cuke... More

Handi always has fresh, good quality food. Its lunch buffet offers a good variety of Indian food, so you can try it all and get as much as you want of what you like best. Staff is always friendly. I've never been there when it's crowded, lots of space.

Our daughter talked us into trying - was well worth it. Had Tandoori Mixed Grill with rice. Chicken, fish, and shrimp were VERY GOOD - not wild about lamb, but suspect that is more me than the quality of lamb served. Had Onion & Paneer bread - was VERY VERY GOOD.

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.
