The prime time to visit Handi is during the lunch buffet, offered 7 days a week. During this time you can test out a wide assortment of Indian fare at a fair price. There are a ton of delicious options here, both veg and non veg. The Naan bread, samosas, saag paneer, veggie pakoras, veggie korma are a few of the highlights usually offered on the buffet lineup.

As it would be quite impossible (not to mention quite pricey!) to order all these items separately, the buffet really is the way to go. Be aware that all items on the buffet line are quite spicy. If you prefer more mildly spiced Indian fare you may want to visit for dinner where you can customize your spice level.

If you do visit during dinner hours, do consider the Palak Paneer and the Vegetable Masala. Of course, Saag Paneer is always a good accompaniment to any main dish. If you have never tried this amazing Indian dish before, you are in for a real treat.


Service is always fantastic at Handi. The waitstaff is prompt and professional. Additionally, the buffet line is always impeccably clean and well-maintained. You will never see empty pans or stale food that needs to be replaced. Food is always fresh and replenished as needed.


The ambiance at Handi is what really sets it apart from other Indian restaurants in the region. In fact, Handi is home to one of the most elegant dining rooms in downtown Greenville. The beautiful decor and brick walls really give it that extra classy touch. Hands down, Handi is one of the best spots in the city for a date or romantic occasion.
