Haveli Restaurant Review

: Since the 1980s, Haveli has introduced its guests to the delights of Indian cooking. For some patrons, a first memory of saag paneer (creamy spinach with homemade cheese) and other classic dishes came from Haveli. Cut into pizza-like wedges, the lamb-stuffed naan and the garlic butter naan make good snack fare. We also like the pear-shaped samosas, but pakora seemed over fried. Daal could be spicier, but that is adjustable according to one's preferences; as for chicken tikka masala, the chicken beneath the bland sauce seemed rather dry and tasteless. Lunch is a buffet. To pair with the food, we suggest a Taj Mahal beer; the 22-ounce bottle provides plenty of fire-quenching quaff for two.
