Pradeep Mullick who, along with Ray Bhangra were integral in the formation of Haandi, arrived in Kenya with an enviable pedigree, having honed his skills in the kitchens of such world class hotels as Sheraton and The Taj.
Pradeep’s culinary style was soon renowned in the area and in 1991 Nairobi witnessed the birth of the first restaurant in the Haandi chain. Haandi’s sister restaurant opened it’s doors in Haveli in 1994 followed by Kampala in 1997. Then in 2000, Ray Bhangra arrived in London to celebrate the millenium with the opening of Haandi, Knightsbridge. A stone's throw away from iconic London landmarks such as Hyde Park, Harrods, The V&A and Natural History Museum, Haandi has been faithfully serving up the authentic flavours of North India in the heart of Knightsbridge. Many more branches have opened since, ensuring as many people as possible can experience Haandi's own brand of magic.
No company can remain successful for as long as the internationally-acclaimed Haandi without two significant ingredients: quality and class.
The philosophy behind Haandi, based on years of experience, is to ensure that each event, from 50 to 1000 guests is meticulously organised and carried out with the minimum off fuss.
Attention to detail, no matter how small, is paramount to us and the success of any occasion relies upon the organiser being able to relax and enjoy a pressure-free experience.
The London based chefs are first trained in Nairobi by Mr Mullick himself and, true to the spirit of great Indian cooking, each masala is freshly prepared every morning. Haandi specialises in North Indian Frontier cuisine and the spices and herbs used to create each dish are selected not merely for their subtlety of flavours but also for their health-giving properties. Fish, shellfish, chicken, meat and an extensive vegetarian selection are all stylishly presented and beautifully executed. A range of bespoke menus are available to cover every aspect of outside and event catering and the team are well versed in advising clients of the best combination to satisfy the most discerning guests. From Canapés, Finger Buffets, Hot Buffets or formal Silver Service banquets, Haandi are experts in providing top-drawer cuisine at competitive rates. Our portable Tandoor allows the world's greatest Barbequed foods to be re-created at your event, adding an element of excitement and diversity to any event.
