“Good food!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

We enjoyed our meal at Haveli on City Road. We went with a LivingSocial voucher, which included a starter, main and a glass of wine or a beer each, which was excellent value.

With so much competition of good restaurants on City Road, I had previously overlooked Haveli. However, the food was excellent and prices very reasonable, so I would definitely return. We ordered the chicken tandoori wings and the chicken chat for starters, which were both delicious - the later had a nice spicy kick to it. For our mains, we ordered the chicken tikka masala and the lamb palak gosht from the Haveli chef's special menu, which came with a rice dish or a naan - both were very tasty. Particularly order the lamb palak gosht dish if you are a big garlic fan!

My only complaint would be that one of our waiters who took our food orders wasn't particularly enthusiastic, or personable - he made no effort of offer us anything else from the menu that wasn't included in the voucher deal, even though we would've quite happily have paid the extra. However, don't let that put you off as the food is a winner!

Had a very nice meal here. Been here a few times now and will go again. The food is better than the average Indian restaurant.

“Good food and good service”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Looks attractive from the outside and cosy on the inside. Staff were attentive and chatty. Gave good advice about food. Cuisine is from northern india, which is nice. Good flavours and well cooked food. Presentation let it down a bit. Salad garnish let the dish down though, was just lettuce and tomato.... Would definitely recommend it though and will return here.

“This is how Indian food should taste”
Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

Went for a meal with my girlfriend and we both loved it. Quality food at a reasonable price. They went thr extra mile by not putting in coriander. Would recommend this restaurant to anybody who enjoys well prepared and generous portions.
