Description: Conceived in 1984 and located in Jaipur's busiest and most centrally located areas, M.I. road, Handi welcomes you with immense warmth along with a lot of spice making you feel at home as soon as you put your first foot in!! Situated in the royal state of Rajasthan, Handi will immediately touch your soul and build an instant connect with you through its deep rooted ambiance which carries in the air a delicate scent of our profound blend of Rajasthani culture and cuisine. Handi has proudly carved a niche for itself in the Mughlai and Tandoori food.

I have been going to Handi for the past 10 yrs now. This was one of the only non-veg places jaipur had till just a few years back. HANDI is a place for the non-pretentious. It is no fine dining restaurant and do not go with that expectation. It spells, Good Food at a great price at the heart of the city!

We-The locals of jaipur go back again and again and again for The Food! The food at Handi is unbeatable and the ambiance is to give you a dhaaba feel. No one can beat Handi's keema baati, laal maas, Galauti kebab, handi meat and butter chicken.

We have never found any service complaints or anything wrong with the food at all. All in all the USP is the food and nowhere is the restaurant positioning itself as a fine dining place.

So guys go there if you would love to try some authentic Indian cuisine. It is soul food...whenever I am out of country for more than 2 weeks, I have have a meal at Handi on getting back or its not like I am back home!

I am frequent visitor to Handi since last more than 10 years. I tried so many restaurants in jaipur for good non veg dishes but i feel that handi is the best place for non veg food. Food quality and pricing, both are very good.(yummi and finger licking food). They have maintained their quality. I also feel that they use good quality spices because after eating non veg (specially lal maas and chicken tikka masala, both are very spicy) at handi, my stomach is never upset. Staff is very cooperative and service is also very quick. All the very best handi. Keep it up. Im very happy and satisfied.

This place has a canteen atmosphere. The tandoori chicken we ordered came with the outer side so hard that it was difficult to chew on. We told the waiter and he said no one has complained so far. It was like it had be reheated a couple of time. He went and told the manager and replaced it. But the staff seemed they just could not care less. All the waiter staff were sad looking and that is a total give away for restaurant - if the waiters do not smile then the food is not going to be good. We left with most of the dishes half full. This place is mostly frequented by tourists and no locals come here. They know that the tourists are not going to be back anyway.

We were looking for a decent place to dine in Jaipur and stopped by at Mirza Ismail Road, which apparently has several good restaurants. Right next to Copper Chimney, we saw a small unassuming place called Handi. A lot of foreigners were walking in, so we thought it might be worthwhile. As we walked in through a passage on the right hand side, there was an open kitchen preparing some awesome dishes...the aroma of tandoori chicken was all around. It looked promising. But the main dining area was a tad disappointing... the walls were made of bamboo and the ceiling was a thatched roof. Plastic tables and chairs were laid out in a crammed way.
We took a table next to a big group of foreigners. Luckily the weather was very cold, so we weren't feeling stuffy. The ambiance was very rustic and the menu card as expected, was just a plain plastic one. Hungry souls that we were, we called for starters and main course immediately. The service was super-quick and we were really hoping the food would be good. My parents called for a chicken tandoori starter which was very well-cooked and well-spiced. My sister loved it. I called for hara bhara kebabs... a bit too oily! Main course for me was Dal Marwari which was absolutely delicious. My sis decided to experiment with Chinese fried rice despite my warning. It obviously wasn't even close to authentic but it was surprisingly yummy. There was nothing great for desserts so we wrapped up. The bill amount didn't pinch one bit!
Overall this place is not too luxurious but seems perfect for an Indian budget meal.
