Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Superb takeaway indian food!!! beautiful spices and marinades and expertly cooked tender meats! We got a selection of dishes with some sides and it did not disappoint. Excellent customer service too. Best in Cork 👌

Not surprised at all that you would take your grievance to Tripadvisor when you didn't get any satisfaction from the very rude phone call you made to us. Firstly, your complaint had no substance whatsoever to it, and your use of words like "disgusting, horrible,...More

We've lost track of how many years we've been going to Haveli. The quality has never dropped and everybody we have recommended Haveli to, are now regulars ! Fresh, Authentic, and always with the highest quality of ingredients, it never lets us down. Perfection! Thanks!

Thank you Pator 77 for this review, it means a lot.

Similar sentiments to Brian’s review. This place used to be far and above anything you could ever hope to taste..unlike any Indian meal anywhere else..flavour flavour and more flavour. Now…the past 3 visits over the previous 6 months. It’s just heat, like any other Indian...takeaway. Little flavour..no different from some greasy-spoon spot. Clearly it is not the same chefs as had been in place for many years. I cannot put in words my loss.. Thank you Haveli, you were once magnificent.More

I go to Haveli for take away all the time. Such a treat, it’s by far the nicest freshest Indian I’ve ever tasted. I usually go for chicken pieces from the tikka oven, really healthy with salad instead of sauce if I’m trying to be...extra good. The breads, rice and sauce dishes are excellent too, so luxuriousMore

I am writing this review out of disappointment, as we have eaten here many times in the past and have always told anyone who would listen that it is the best Indian takeaway in Ireland. Unfortunately the last few times were a bit disappointing, compared...to the usual high standards. The main courses were great as usual, freshly made and delicious. However the naan breads were hugely disappointing. They used to be amazing, large breads with burnt blisters and puffed out from very hot tandoor, they were delicious. But the last few times they were much much smaller, and with no burnt blisters, and very flat. Also missing was the poppy seeds and melted butter that used to be on the naans from before. We were so disappointed with them. Why have you changed what used to be the highlight of the meal? I will order again from Haveli but I don't think I will get the naan again as it was so poor. Hopefully they will change back.More

Worst Indian meal we've ever had. It was as if the chef had spilt the chilli powder all over the kitchen, as even the Korma, Makhani and Tikka Massala dishes that we ordered were spicy.

If you’re looking for tremendous Indian food, look no further. Absolutely delicious. I had the Lamb Saag & Vegetable Samosas. The lamb was tender & the spicing was perfect. Nicely cooked rice to go with it. Loved the batter on the samosas & the filling...was top notch. Great to find a spot like this.More
