Don't come hungry - you will die before you get food Lunchtime, rather empty - 1h wait Juice was good, tandoori prawns delicious $25 for one I don't like ambiance & there was terrible beeping noise from their light system But if you are not hungry, especially in small group (4-6) you can enjoy good food

I had always admired this restaurant for years and finally i got to sample what they offer when my wife surprised me with a dinner date on my birthday. The ambience is lovely, appealing and mind calming especially when you have had a long day at work. Staff at Haandi are meticulous and the food quality, presentation and portion is... More

This place does not disappoint. After a repeat visit years apart, the service staff are still very attentive, helpful and full of detail. The menu is extensive, but easy to understand. The food is fresh and very good. This place comes highly recommended for family, pleasure or business visit. It has an uncanny way it gels all needs.

Lovely restaurant. We ate here three times while in Nairobi. The service is great and really friendly. The restaurant is really welcoming and has a lovely atmosphere. The food was amazing. We had the Kadhi chicken, chicken vindaloo, seekh kebabs, dal vaada and garlic nan breads. Everything was delicious, fresh and super tasty.

The food and service at Haandi is good. The ambiance is not great. The price of the restaurant is consistent with most restaurants in Nairobi.

Have been visiting Haandi, every time I find myself in Nairobi. The food is good, as can be expected. And few years back, they have improved the decor. A must visit...

While this may be the best Indian restaurant in Nairobi, I found the food to be pretty average in comparison with the Indian food I've eaten elsewhere around the world. Service was ok.
