First, it is no longer Haandi. It is Kadhai at 7905 Norfolk, as others have mentioned. But the food is still terrific. Been there many, many times and have never had a second-class meal. The service is terrific too.

The restaurant has moved a block away to 7905 Norfolk Avenue, Bethesda, with a new name. Same great Indian cuisine, freshly prepared, wonderful spices and flavors, and a few new items on the menu. Service is pleasant and efficient.

We love this restaurant. The food is authentic and tasty and always fresh. The naan is exceptional. The servers are always attentive. I know the name has changed but the food remains delicious.

I love this restaurant but we went to their new location last night, and they changed the name. According to an employee the owner kept a Virginia location and sold off the Bethesda, and he took the name. It's Kaldea or something. Still great food;...More
