Decent Indian restaurant in a great location

We ate dinner inside which was air conditioned. It was too hot to eat outside. WE were warmly greeted and seated. The atmosphere is decent. The service was excellent. We enjoyed a delicious appetizer of potato pate cooked in yogurt and chick peas with Tamarind sauce. Also a different take on... read more

I did not read the TripAdvisor reviews until after eating at this restaurant. The reviews really surprised me since my entire dinner party thought the food was excellent. I had the Jheenga Pakora (Shrimps lightly battered with fresh herbs and spices, deep-fried). I ate there several months ago and I am still drooling just to think about them.

I was excited at first to seethe place. It seem good and the Ambience were nice. The 2 red chairs gave it an Indian Flavour. The food was not at all impressive. If you are an Indian and looking for soe spicy Indian Butter Chiken or Dal Makhani suely this is notthe place to be.

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
