“Top class Indian cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

Excellent restaurant with fantastic food, attentive service and attractive decor. The private booths, shielded by a curtain if you so wish, are a nice, inventive touch. Great choice of vegetarian curries. A backstreet gem.

“Hidden treasure. Good food, quality ingredients, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2011 via mobile

First of all, where is it? 10 th street, Between 26th and 2nd. From 26th, heading from 9th towards 7th, turn right on the road opposite Khaladia Mall that runs at the back of the shops. The second left is 10th. Haveli is one of the first shop fronts on the left down tenth.

Highly recommend the Murgh Methi (chicken w. fenugreek). The ingredients are always fresh and of a high quality. One of the best in Abu Dhabi.

“Nice Restaurant wrongly located”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2011 via mobile

Beautiful restaurant with lovely North Indian cuisine. The only drawback is the location which i found a bit difficult to explain as its situated far behind the main roads.

“Best indian place in Abu Dhabi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

Haveli might be a bit tough to find in the back of Khalidiya Street, near the Manhal Palace, but it is definitely worth a trip. It is nicely decorated inside, more lavish than most Indian restaurants in town.

A couple can have dinner for less than 100 AED and that is for a massive feast where you won't eat for the next two days. Most dishes are below 30 AED and you should definitely try some of their in house specials.

If you are going in a larger group, definitely order the Haveli Special which is a mix-grill platter with different kinds of meats. Very delicious. Don't miss out on various Aloo (potato) dishes that are equally tasty and finish it all off with a nice mango lassi.
