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

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.

Havali's is a classy restaurant that makes you feel like you've just opened the door and stepped into India. The authentic décor really catches your attention and the music is relaxing. The service is professional and friendly in a classic East Indian way. There are many items to choose from on the menu and its all very good. Personally I... More

I was very impressed by the size and quality of the buffet at this restaurant. I was there early in the evening so everything was very fresh. The onion bahji were as good as I've tasted anywhere and the nan bread was very good. The only minor criticism I would have had was that the gulab jamin were not as... More

We went early for dinner here, at one point we were the only ones in the restaurant. Service was good, the food was good. We had some chicken pakora, onion bhaijis (which were very odd - not little balls of deep fried onions in chickpea flour but pieces of onion individually fried) and some meat samosas. But everything tasted great.... More

We were a group of four friends and the waiter suggested a set dinner for four with various dishes from the menu. We gladly took him up on his offer as it saved us from having to make any decisions. The meal was very tasty from the potato pancake with sauce appetizer to the plate of sweets for dessert. Some... More

If you love Indian Food, this spot was great! They offered a meal that sampled many different appetizers and main course dishes. Everything was tasty with an amazing blend of spices. The 'temperature' of the food was exactly as we requested on the mild side so everyone was able to taste all the offerings. It was a quiet Monday evening... More
