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.

“The food is as good as ever”
Reviewed May 20, 2009

Having been visiting Haandi for over 15 years, the concept, service and food has not changed. In the case of Haandi, this is a good thing because they have always served excellent North Indian Food. The food is heavy, and not something you would eat regularly, but a special treat, it is truly worth visiting.

They have tasty tandoor's (food baked in clay ovens), curry's (chicken, vegetarian, mutton, fish and seafood), various rice dishes, and breads. The food is all about communal dining. Order several starters and main courses and share them on your table.

We always start off with masala papad (poppadums), and then have a few tandoor dishes (chicken tikka, paneer tikka), and move onto the main courses (chicken makhani (butter chicken), amritsari fish (fish fillets coated in gram flour, shallow fried with a sauce), palak paneer, dhal makhani and so on) with a variety of naans and rice.

Service is always good and efficient. The restaurant does feel a bit dated and could do with a facelift.

“Great Indian food in Nairobi”
Reviewed January 17, 2009

I visitied Haandi in June 08 and this place serves mouth watering Indian cuisine in Nairobi and the service is efficient too.

I also enjoyed the Daawa drink (Vodka with lemon and honey).
Surprised to see the place packed with people.

I definitely recommend it to people looking for curry and Indian food.

Looking forward to my next visit later this year.
