Costly for the food quality

Visited Haveli while on a trip to the city. Ambience was OK. Staff was nice to talk to. Food was good but could have been better..and the South Indian dishes were way too oily. I was expecting more choice of food in buffet for $15.99 per person. The dessert section was very limited. 2 types of... read more

The food is exquisitely prepared and presented. Tasty with the right combination of flavours. Great service from everyone at the restaurant. We actually look forward to a trip back.

Just had some takeout from Haveli. Not impressed. The chicken khorma was bland to the point of tasteless and the baingan bharta was undercooked. The onions in the bharta are supposed to be sautéed and soft but they were raw, crunchy and overpowering. The lamb masala was ok but a bit on the bland side too. The best part of... More

OMG. If you want the best of the best of the best of Indian food - go here. That's pretty much all I have to say about this place as I've been to MANY Indian restaurants of varying quality (it's my favourite food) and this place kicks anywhere else outside of India.

We ate here later on a Friday evening but they still found room for us. I love Indian food and loved the variety of dishes to pick from. My friend likes Indian food but is not fond of things too spicy. They recommended a dish for her that she enjoyed. Service was good and price was comparable to other similar... More

If you like authentic Indian, here it is! This trip we hit the restaurant on a Sunday night and it was buffet night! Naan fresh from the tandoor oven, freshly made masala dosas, intense daal mahkni, amazing ras malai for dessert. Top this off with Cheetah dark beer (made to balance with Indian food) and we were both in heaven.... More

The taste of food was very avarage compared to the price they charge ,it could be we have ordered the wrong dish which was one of the goat curry and it does stood up to the expectation.

In my opinion, one of the best Indian food in the city, the service is not the greatest, but the food makes it. I go grab a lunch buffet ounce and a while and every time I end up over eating because it's sooooo freakin good. loll

My husband and I dined here for lunch and decided on the buffet. The tandoori chicken was cold and flavourless but most other menu items were edible. The service was good and the price was right but I would not return.
