Named after the clay cooking pots which catch all the flavour of its north Indian frontier cuisine, Haandi is a smart group of restaurants which originated in Nairobi. This Knightsbridge branch is decorated in muted colours, with mirrors and leafy foliage to enhance its airy feel, while an open kitchen gives diners an entertaining view as their masala and kebabs are freshly prepared.
