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

Many, many choices for the GF and Dairy free eater. Knowledgable, friendly and helpful staff. This is some of the best Indian food I have had! The restaurant looks worn, but that means it has been around for a long time! It was packed on a Saturday evening. Neighboring restaurants were dead. If you go with more than 4, I... More

After looking at several places to eat in the market we decided to try Haveli. What a great choice. Staff very knowable about the menu and content of food. We had a dinner for two. Each dish was well presented and tasted wonderful. We also chatted in length with the owner who had come over to make sure that everything... More

Met up with a friend for dinner while in town. Before either one of us opened the menu, I asked our server what their signature dishes were. I was informed of their "off menu" fixed price dinner. For $30 we were treated to a three sampler app, a sampling of 4 meat dishes with rice and naan, as well as... More

We went here on a Friday and had an amazing meal which we rushed through to get to our Haunted Walk tour. We liked it so much we came back on the Saturday........ we ordered the butter chicken again and it was tasteless. We spoke to the manager (?) who seemed confused why it would be bland, and finally offered... More

So glad we found this gem! Worth the cab ride, everything was absolutely delicious! We've had some excellent Indian food at home in Toronto, but this was the best we've ever had. Perfect samosas and nan. Dal was so creamy and decadent tasting. Tandoori chicken was moist, butter chicken (equivalent....called something else on menu) did not disappoint. Highly recommend!!!

The buffet is well spread out and provides a decent choice of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food. The location is close to ByWard's market and the food is reasonably Indian. However, the staff is discourteous.

5 of us went to Haveli last night despite reading about some of the bad reviews. I have to say that the food and service was exceptional. They proposed to do a meal for 5 with and an assortment of appetizers and main dishes to share. Here’s what we had: Allo Tikit Chaat, onion bahi and kebabs as appetizers. Beef... More

My ex-coworker friends wanted to come here for the lunch buffet. Food: WHY NO BUTTER CHICKEN IN THE LUNCH BUFFET? This is always disappointing. The vegetable korma was ok. Tandoori chicken was ok. The spinach was way too salty. Inedible. Atmosphere: Same as usual. One bad thing. It seemed that a young lady was acting as the manager today and... More
