“For good Indian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

The food here has always been excellent. Almost a regular haunt. Service is decent but the USP is the food.

“Delish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Haveli is located at the busy Capital centre mall along Mombasa road which means parking may be a problem, at least during the day, but it is well worth it. The restaurant has a banquet feel with its high ceiling, chandeliers, thick carpeting and spacious seating. The service is quick, friendly and knowledgeable. The menu boasts a wide variety of indian cuisine that is delightful and spiced to your taste. The Naan will keep me going back for more. I would not however recommend the juices as they tend to be highly sugared.

“ENJOYED”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Very good authentic Indian food. I had the chicken masala with rice and naan and sprite. Atmosphere is an open floor plan. Amazingly it looks just like the Indian resturants I've been in the U.S.

“Fell below expectation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

Recently had a quick dinner at Haveli prior to catching a flight out of JKIA. Whilst the service was quick and relatively friendly, the food itself left a lot to be desired, well below that of sister restaurant Haandi. I personally won't be returning in a hurry.

“Great Indian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

Excellent Indian food, excellent variety, great service -- rather odd (IMHO) décor. If you want a Indian dish that is not on the menu (which is very extensive) just ask. They'll probably make it for you. They will prepare your food to whatever level of hotness you want.
