A pursuit for knowledge was the stimulus and continues to be the driving force behind Chef Niven’s career. Ghee means PURE and has a symbolic meaning both spiritually and in the kitchen of an Indian home. The restaurant encompass traditional Indian home cooking, ingredient driven using local artisan purveyors. Chef Niven highlights the experience of dining at Ghee: "I want to my guests to walk into Ghee with the sense of entering my home. I want them to feel at home. I want them to smell the aromas and spices and get more engaged in their meal. One of the things that I always tell my cooks is, ask questions, be inquisitive if you don’t know. I want the same for my guests."

    We had the tuna appetizer, the crispy broccoli and the chicken tikki masala. Everything was delicious. And, the service was on point. I’d definitely come back.

    Having previously visited the restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, we went back for my husband’s birthday expecting more of the same. As last time, the food was amazing, unfortunately the service let down the whole experience. Firstly, the waitress seemed confused when we ordered and didn’t understand the menu well enough to know what our friend, with food restrictions, could and couldn’t eat. She never once checked on us throughout the entire meal, we never got to reorder drinks, or had the water refilled, she completely forgot one part of the meal and when I pointed it out she asked me why I hadn’t reminded her! She then brought our bill without asking us if we’d like dessert so we then had to ask to see the dessert menu. We felt completely ignored and unappreciative throughout the evening and it really put a dampener on our birthday celebrations.

    Food was amazing, service was very good as well. We order the peri peri wings as a starter and both food and aioli tasted delicious. We had the chicken tikka masala and the kerala lamb, both tasted amazing. We had the Naughty but nice and the tamarind sour cocktails and both very good as well. Highly recommended.

    Something was definitely off last night. The mango lassi was too thick and pale in color and the mango used was either green or had a strong acidic or bitter aftertaste. We could not finish them. The saag paneer was too watery and it seemed to have a chicken or beef broth base. It was also too spicy The chana masala was way too spicy and had a darker sauce than usual. No one asked us how spicy we wanted our food and we were surprised the dishes were so spicy. Only the roasted pork tasted good, but not all people in our party ate pork. I have been to this restaurant before and the food has been good. I dragged our entire party to Ghee telling them this was the best Indian restaurant in town and we were all very disappointed. I am not sure if the chef was different, but the experience last night was truly disappointing. We were celebrating a birthday and the birthday person did not want to try the desserts. So the whole plan was an epic fail.

    Phenomenal restaurant- great food and ambiance. Service was a bit scattered and I find it unacceptable to start gratuities at 21%. Pay your staff better - your prices for things like chicken thighs and taro is already inflated. Love the restaurant, but won’t support you if you keep walking down this road.

    my wife and I enjoyed the food and wine pairing and thought it was fantastic. It was also a good value. I can't say I loved the Indian white wine, but it went well with the food. Ghee is one of our favorite restaurants and we are so grateful for Chef Nevin Patel. He is exceptional.

    Terrific Indian food with tremendous creative flare. Consistently excellent and menu imaginative. Indoors is VERY noisy. Outdoors is quiet--you can enjoy conversation without straining. I have only a tiny criticism--I wish chutney portions were much more generous, and though I love your tamarind date chutney, I wish you'd also offer mango chutney. All round a great dining experience.

    Attempting to make a healthier version of naan with pumpkin seeds didn’t help as it, as well as the garlic naan, were heavier than ever. The dosa was good. I wish they had more dosas considering hardly any restaurants serve them at all. There was almost no ‘non spicy’ version of anything. Even mild dishes were quite hot. Mango lassi served in a plastic bottle didn’t tasers as good. There were two servers attending to us. One didn’t know what the other was doing or had been told.

    Recently tried the new addition to the menu – the ceviche in a crispy puff, perfectly paired with the Forager Pale Ale! 🍺 It instantly transported me back to my days in Peru 🇵🇪. Easily a 20-star ⭐️ experience out of 5 – I'm definitely coming back for more! The food is consistently amazing, and I appreciate the friendly and professional staff. It feels like a home away from home. The owner even took the time to check in on our table. Outstanding experience!

    Ghee was amazing. From the second you step foot near the restaurant you can already smell how good the food is. We did the special Diwali course tasting and the food tasted so authentic. We received so many options for appetizers and the main course was different assortments of curries. Very accommodating as I was a vegetarian, would definitely come back

    The server was overly concerned about the price of every single item on the menu, constantly mentioning how it would cost extra. I went for the Diwali tasting menu and was originally told at the entrance that my food was paid for when I entered my card information on OpenTable. I double checked with the waiter prior to leaving, but waiter just kept going around handling any other request. Food wasn’t any better than Ashoka despite the premium pricing. I would pass next time.
