“Utterly fantastic, best curry I've ever had in Sheffield!”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Impeccable service from the second we walked in, despite us being 5-10mins late for our booking. The food was served quickly and was absolutely incredible! The family dosa is both huge and amazingly tasty, our party of 3 had a fish, chicken and lamb dish respectively and all of us were overjoyed :) the 7.5% king cobra is a lovely touch as well, will definitely be coming back again! Recommend to anyone!

“Absolutely fantastic everything”
Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

Just finished a meal here and I have to say this was a fantastic restaurant the staff were really very friendly and happy to help and chat about the menu and the tasty southern Indian dishes. We had the family dosa for our party and the chutneys were lovely. The starters and mains were shared between us and I can't pick my favouright but the nilgiri chicken curry was very nice and the meat very tender. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will go again soon. Thank you for a lovely time maveli.

“An great addition to the Town Centre scene.”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Went here on the spur of the moment. The other two S. Indian restaurants in Sheffield are excellent and this is no exception. We had (four of us) the Family Dhosa - absolutely enormous. I have no idea the size of the griddle it was made on but it must have been HUGE!!

The rest of the food was superb - and frankly I can't wait to go back again! Service is good, a little slow to get going but then really good. The King Cobra beer looks authentic (i.e. not made in Northampton) but be aware, it is 7.5%!

“Great curry if you want to try something different”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

The great thing about Maveli is that it is not a bog standard curry house in the middle of town. It is a South Indian restaurant where you will find many different dishes to try and won't be dissapointed!

There are some really lovely starters such as aubergine bhajjis and dosas. The Dosa is really good if you want something to share between two or maybe four depending on what size you get! It is a savoury pancake rolled up and filled with delicous things.

The menu is small, but you know that it is all freshly cooked and the price is not too bad, at around £6-8 for a main course, and then £2 or so for rice.

They serve beers with favourites like Cobra and King Cobra available, and the staff are attentive and very pleasant indeed.

We are pleased you liked the dosas. Dosas are particular to the Southern parts of India where different types of dosas are made with minor variations in ingredients . We have tried our best to keep the cuisine South Indian . Thanks for taking the time to write about Maveli.

“So glad to have another South Indian restaurant in Sheffield!”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Was looking forward eagerly to the opening of Maveli when I saw the signs a few months ago. Went for the first time today and was quite impressed. Authentic coconut chutney (the red one is quite spicy!), crisp dosa and flavoursome masala filling. Thrilled that it serves halal meat too!

Marked down a little as my mutton masala dosa was cool at the edges (though filling was warmer) - okay for me but others may have preferred it served warmer. Also they forgot about our drinks (but were very apologetic about it and made masala tea specially for my friend).

All in all, great value for money. I will be back!
