Description: Haandi specialises in North Indian Frontier cuisine and true to the spirit of the original concept, the masalas are freshly-prepared daily, all the dishes are cooked to order and absolutely everything you eat is created on the premises. Our trademark glass fronted kitchens add an element of drama to each restaurant, allowing you, the diner, to watch the chefs as they create their own brand of magic. We have always insisted on the freshest, finest ingredients available and this policy has rewarded us with a reputation where quality is paramount and the satisfaction of you, the customer, always comes first. and of course the service is exemplary.

“A reliable curry house”
Reviewed October 8, 2011

Haandi has been working to a succesful North Indian formula for many years. It's a little rundown in the light of day, but with consistently god main coursss in flavoursome sauces you may not notice in the evening. It's popular, but you rarely need to book. If you can't finish the meal (eyes can be bigger than stomachs) they will pack. Parking in the Mall is safe.

“A pretty decent Indian restaurant”
Reviewed October 8, 2011

I was directed to this by my taxidriver. Having eaten at other Indian restaurants, I would say that it is pretty good. The portions are sizeable. We ordered 3 dishes--two meats and a veg plus naan and we could not finish them.

There is no real view and the tables are close to each other. So don't expect ambience.

“Not what it was”
Reviewed September 25, 2011

Nice decor, Average food and poor service sums up what has become of Haandi.
Plenty of better Indian restaurants in town.
Time for them to wake up and realise that past reputations only last so long.
