“Delicious!”
Reviewed by Jasmine from Hove, United Kingdom
Me and my friend visited Handi for dinner, we were promptly seated and shown the menu which was lovely. A massive variety of BBQ chicken which is great as alot of places do not have any meat options! The meal was fab and the butter naan was the best I have ever had! Would definitely come back and value for money! Only thing they did try to push you to have a drink other than water but most places seem to in India!

“Lamb curry is praise”
A DaoDao Member from China
The LP strongly recommend a shop along the main road jaipur very easy to find it. People comfortable store environment is simple, natural inevitably come here to eat the most authentic lamb curry, naan bread accompanied you. Curry is really very fragrant, and there is no kind of sweet Japanese curry, more inclined to directly stimulate the taste buds feeling torn by hand Nang cake, then dipped in curry sauce is really delicious.

“Go there for Laalmaas”
Reviewed by Indrakolkata from Jaipur
If you like mouthwatering spicy mutton dish, try the Laalmaas at Handi. It is a traditional Rajasthani non veg dish and Handi leaves you wanting for more. Nice cosy ambience and reasonably efficient service!!

“Great Rajasthani cuisine- great alternative to Niros”
Reviewed by Delamitri68 from Gurgaon, India
We went to Handi for a family dinner and since there were a healthy mix of carnivores and vegetarians amongst us ordered a cross section of food from the menu. The food was really very good especially the jungli Maas and Handi chicken along with the malai kofta and naan Would def visit again

Even more excitement comes in the form of our Biryani’s, especially the ever-succulent Handi Mutton Biryani or chicken Biryani, be sure to give one of those, or both, a try. Vegetarians need not worry as the expanded menu includes many of the old favorites as well as some new creations. Have you ever tried our Butter Paneer Platter, well if not, try it or stick with Pindi Chana Masala or Palak Paneer, dishes that work equally well with some of our saffron infused Basmati Rice or any of our varieties of Naan (plain, butter, stuffed, cheese, garlic, onion).

Reviews shared on Trip Advisor

“Authentic Tandoori stuff”

4 of 5 starsReviewed 9 August 2013 NEW by Mr. Baljeet from Mumbai
I have been visiting Handi restaurant in Jaipur for many years. it may not offer much in terms of ambience – but it more than makes up with its exotic tandoori stuff. The chicken tikkas, seekh kababs, mutton burra and tandoori chicken are succulent and a treat to order. The main course has to be with handi meat, butter chicken and roomali roti. Handi meat is a specialty of this place and is definitely a great item.

The meal at Handi is always a pleasure and it has maintained its standard over the years.

“Handi is great”

4 of 5 starsReviewed 30 July 2013 by Amandeep

I often go to Handi to have non veg, it is one of the few places where you get very good non veg at reasonable rates.

“All good”

4 of 5 starsReviewed 13 July 2013 by Marmalade

We were struggling to find a place to eat and Handi had been recommended by local friends so we figured it was a safe bet. It is a no frills restaurant with rows of tables and chairs in a dimly lit space. It was clean, service was efficient and the food was fabulous. The menu is extensive and there were plenty of vegetarian options. Our favourite was butter masala paneer. Toilets were clean and prices were reasonable.

“Decently Delicious and Nicely Decorated”

4 of 5 starsReviewed 14 June 2013 by Orlendo Traveller

We have eaten here several time. Good food, decent service, taste goes very well for all sort of people including Indians and foreigners as food is neither too spicy not bland. Service is prompt and the decor is very local and cozy, nothing very fancy.

Entire team at Handi Restaurant feel elated that you had the great experience of dining at our place 🙂
