It is one of the first modern Indian restaurants in the city. The interiors are contemporary and chic. The only element dating back to Haveli days is the Anjolie Ela Menon mural that fills an entire wall. Service is unobtrusive and the food ranges from the never-seen-before to old favourites in a new avatar. For example, Haleem aur Kebab is a nifty take on an old classic: perfectly authentic haleem with kebabs. Varqi Crab is an invention of the restaurant: crab and tandoori shrimp served with filo pastry like a mille-feuille. Martaban ka Meat, Masala Sea Bass and Singhada Palak are other highlights. Haveli has very cleverly kept a few old-time, standard Indian favourites. The most interesting aspect is the pairing of food with teas. They really do have a huge range of mainly Indian teas which taste different from each other and go best with certain dishes. It's a path-breaking concept to highlight an Indian ingredient with Indian food, rather than trying to pair a wine from Chile with the food of Punjab.

As starters, the Galouti Kababs were so soft and succulent that you keep relishing them long after they have melted away in your mouth! Their signature dish, Martaban ka Meat, struck all the right chords, with rice as well as lachha parantha. Black Daal was subtle. The Apple Kheer and their Rose tea closed the meal on a high note!
It is highly recommended to venture out here for that special treatment - like the one a King gets - in all departments; the ambiance, the food, and the service.
