“They try too hard to please”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Made very welcome. Food good. Nice ambience.
I think my biggest problem is that the staff try too hard to please to the point of being obtrusive.
When we were in conversation the staff butted in several times and interrupted.
I suggest that they need to be obvious and available but not to constantly interrupt asking if everything is ok.
The attitude and attention is commendable but a bit OTT.
We will be going again and recommend this place for great food.

“Still the best in Nottingham..”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Had another takeaway meal from 'Haveli' a couple of weeks ago and still can't believe the quality of the food. The food is always freshly cooked and full of flavour. Abit more expensive than your normal run of the mill Indian, however this is top restaurant quality food and well worth it! Will definitely be having another very soon. Would have no hesitation to recommend this place!

“Fantastic ”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

First impressions were amazing - great welcome, lovely friendly staff who were 'all smiles', and nicely decorated restaurant and great staff uniforms. The food was fantastic, best selection of curries I have ever had and absolutely fantastic presentation of the food. Wow factor. This place does certainly go the extra mile. I could not fault one thing. Attention to detail was great. Don't know how you can sustain this but if you can keep this up great. Would definitely visit again even though a little out of the way for us.

“Outstanding service & amazing food...”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

I have been here couple of times.. and never been dissapointed... we were greeted by beautifully dressed waiters with smile on their faces. Food was on time and perfectly cooked releasing their aroma before you put it in your mouth.
Very good service and very attentive staffs. You will not even get chance to ask anything ,coz waiters are alwayz there to make sure whether you need anything.

In a simple words, best indian restaurant i have ever been..

“Not as good as it was”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

We have visited on a number of occasions now and it isn't the restaurant it once was.
It used to be immaculate and almost intimate despite the size of the place.
Now they've packed in loads more tables it just feels cramped.
Lillies on all the tables when we visited were over powering with their smell - just no! Not everyone likes the smell of them.

Food too, the quality just isn't the same quality as last year. It doesn't have to wow factor anymore.

I think that it's probably my last visit for a while. There are too many great restaurants in Nottingham and most of them are cheaper.
