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.

“Indian food in Kenya?”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is by far the best place where you would get Indian food in Kenya. Ambiance is perfect for a leisurely lunch or dinners. Location is also good as it is right in middle of Westlands, where most of the Indian community resides in Nairobi.

Though Indian, the most of the food will be bit bland, which suites Kenyans. If you are normal Indian, who likes the food bit spicy (normal spicy), you need to specifically ask to make it super spicy.

As is the case with any other restaurant in Nairobi, food is expensive.

A long established restaurant know by regulars as a top evening out at a relatively reasonable price. A favourite for business lunches and dinner and family gatherings.

“If you have a layover at the Nairobi Airport drive here for dinner”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

We had a 6 hour layover at the Nairobi airport. Faced with the bleak food choices at the airport we went to Haandi for dinner. It was well worth the trip. The food is excellent as was the service. Our only complaint is that we could not take the leftovers with us to eat on the plane! The hostess told us the restaurant is negotiating to open a site at the airport. If so I hope the food served there is as good as at this restaurant.
