the is the best Indian in the North East. The food is outstanding in quality and prep. It has new dishes and old favourites. All well balanced and spiced perfectly. The team are helpful and offer outstanding service. There's a wine list, gin menu and cocktail menu as well.

Food was massively over spiced. Dishes we have had there before as medium were almost impossible to eat and it ruined our experience and made the steep prices unacceptable.

The service and food were excellent there was a delay in bringing out our appetisers probably a 10 minute wait to long
But the staff were apologetic and at the end of the meal deducted 10% because of the wait which in truth had nor really been an issue
The food was everything it should be this was an Indian meal totally different from the norm and worth the wait

I thought there was an excellent selection of meals on the menu. My party all enjoyed what they had ordered and the staff were helpful. The ambience was rather spoilt by the noise especially from the table next to us. At times they made it difficult to hear what the waiters were explaining when they brought the dishes.

This was the first time we had been to this restaurant. Although the service was good and the food was very good, I thought it was quite expensive.

It is worth going for a special occasion but not as a regular event.

Had the Valentine's day 5 course special with my wife and everything was perfect. Food was amazing and came out at just the right time for each course. Service was excellent and they were there if you needed them but gave us plenty of privacy.
The price was fair for the quality of food and the experience. We could not have had a better time and the free rose we received at the end of the meal was a lovely touch.

Very good food, with healthy eating options, which is a great idea for any restaurant let alone an Indian. Too much to eat took a box home, 4 stars for value as it was just a little bit expensive but not too much. Would go again.

My wife and I went to Haveli to celebrate my birthday. The restaurant was busy without being crowded but the noise levels were low because of the design of the room and materials used. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was outstanding. I particularly liked the fact that the menu offered not only curry classics but also a good range of dishes created by the chef for this restaurant. A nice touch at the end was the gift of a pudding for me and my wife inscribed with “happy birthday” in chocolate sauce. We will, for sure, be back before my next birthday.

Haveli never fails to disappoint. Friendly, efficient service, delicious food, varied wine list and they now have a gin list. For the designated driver, mocktails.

We were a party of 6 and went early because the place was booked and by the time we left it was just about full.

The good thing about the restaurant itself is you don't feel crowded and also the noise level is low.

The menu has expanded to include street food and the "regular" curries. We did not try those and kept to what we have had before. I am not sure where they buy their king prawns but they are the size of small lobsters!

Put it this way, we are lucky to have this place so close.

A beautiful,comfortable contemporary restaurant. This was a first visit for my wifes birthday and this was a lovely place to dine. I booked on recommendation and was certainly not dissapointed. The restaurant was busy and lively,which is a good indication of its popularity. I love Indian cuisine and the quality of the food was a notch above other restaurants that the wife and myself have visited on a regular basis. The staff were welcoming,friendly and attentive. The overall service was excellent. We both had a very pleasant evening and look forward to a return in the New Year,hopefully with the family.

Fantastic food!! Service was all or nothing. Had at least three waiting staff within 5 minutes of sitting down and then a no one appeared for a while. Restaurant was very noisy. Everyone having a wonderful time, however, to try and have a conversation was very difficult!
