I'm a Curry aficionado that prides herself on trying most of the Indian restaurants - if not all - in Vancouver. This was a nice little find near Ambleside park...
The Atmosphere is nice and the ambiance is great, being so close to the water has something to do with it!!! I had a Tandoori chicken which was juicy and flavorful, nice and sizzling when it came out so you could tell it was as fresh as you could hope for. However, I found that the Naan bread was a bit on the overcooked side... a bit dry and crunchy... Nothing beats a fresh fluffy naan bread, so it did definitely detract from my experience.
The waiter was friendly, although forgot our drinks, not that big of a deal really.
The problem with most Indian restaurants is that you rarely have a combination of atmosphere, great food, and price. Handi had a great atmosphere, not the best value and the food was good, not the best, but still good. My friend had ordered the butter chicken and it tasted a bit too sweet for my taste.
But still, it is a great place to go for a special event when you want to enjoy the North Shore and then have a great meal. - I'd go again.
