We had a family dinner at Haveli and ordered quite a bit of Indian food, although their menu also features fusion western dishes.
Amongst 6 persons, we had 6 garlic naans ($3 each), 1 white rice (also $3) and 5 dishes to share. It took a little shoving towards the end but we managed to finish most of the food. The garlic naans were so-so, not quite garlicky enough and I think we would get basmati rice next time for more fragrance.
Mushroom Tikka ($12)
Bhindi Masala ($15)
I liked the ladies fingers as well; slightly crunchy and spicy. But check out the amount of ginger! Actually, ginger featured plentifully in many of the dishes which can be a little overpowering, leaving all the dishes with a similar lingering taste.
Kadai Prawns ($18)
I actually don’t remember much of this dish. It’s either I didn’t get to it or it didn’t stand out either way. R says the prawns were fresh but the gravy was not as intense as other dishes. But see what I mean about the ginger!
Butter Chicken ($15)
Aloo Mattar ($12)
Oh yes, we also had the cucumber raita ($6). It was more dilute than others I have had and also more expensive. I may skip this next time.
Overall, an ok Indian place that we would go back only because it is a stone’s throw away. It would also be interesting to try their western food.
