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 🙂

All of us know that  most of the foreigners, who visits India, has mainly two mottos in mind- First is to watch Historical Monuments and the other is to taste Indian food.

Foreigners dining at Handi Restaurant

Their liking towards Indian Mughlai food starts and ends with Butter Chicken. Butter Chicken is an Indian Non-Veg dish hardly available in other English Countries.  Most of the English People Cook beef and this is the reason that they couldn’t taste Indian Non-Veg dishes including Butter Chicken. In fact, many foreigners have started recognizing India as the Country of tandoori dishes and even saying the Butter Chicken as the food brand of India.

Jaipur is already famous for its historical monuments…so Foreigners just make sure that every time they are in the city, a visit to Maya: Handi is a must must. This fragrant and spicy dish is an all time favorite and sure hit served at Handi restaurant.
Butter Chicken Masala tastes great with Naan, Tandoori parantta and Roti…!

So, come and enjoy an appetizing delicious meal nowhere else but at Handi Restaurant and add that much needed spice to your meals.
