Good Vegetarian Options
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."

5 STARS ALL THE WAY!

Hands down this is the BEST restaurant in MDD! The food and staff are AMAZING. I've been to Ghee numerous times and I always bring someone new to try it. It always lives up- and exceeds- the expectations I create!

Best tip I can give, is to order everything (okay, not all cause you won't be able to move, but order like 80% of the menu) if you're with a party of 4 or more. Mix the dishes and enjoy the party going on in your mouth!

If you're a little sensitive to the heat, order a strawberry (or Mango if they have it) lassi when they take your drink order, it's great to have and is delicious!!

If you like Indian food, you are gonna absolutely LOVE ghee. For starters, the service is always great. Then there is a drink menu with delicious cocktails made with sake, a wine list, and craft beers. The food is to-die-for. We got the cauliflower and plantains from the appz. section, the chicken tiki masala, and the fish + charred ribs and everything was extremely good. Of course, you can't forget the garlic naan (my favorite part). 10/10 would recommend.

Consistent and always enjoyable.

Service and food are very good, if not excellent.

Will continue to go, and bring others, who have yet to experience.

I hadn’t visited Ghee before but I’d heard about lots of good experiences and it didn’t disappoint. The unusual mix of flavours and ingredients were delicious and it left me wanting more. This is now my favourite Indian restaurant. My only complaint was the AC was too cold but this is a fault of most places in Miami.

I finally got the opportunity to bring my husband here and he loved it just as much as I do!! I’ve been coming for months with my girlfriends and they’re always amazed at how on point the flavor profile is. Everything Ive tried is delicious some things more than others but you can tell the thought and love put into everything they serve. It’s also a great wait staff which is often hard to find in Miami.. Ask for Andres he always gives the best recommendations!!

Very nice food but it isn’t typical Indian more like fancy Asian fusion style Indian food.
The portion are small for sharing. You need order couple of Dishes
Everything they serve is locally farm by them.
Menu changes therefore every day.
I can highly recommend it.

Food is The Must Thing going to Ghee. Outstanding!!
Ambience is bad due to the high noise level; a combination of poor educated clients that shout instead of speaking with no sound proof accurate enough for the tiny space.
I’ve been many times there but this last time I had to wait 45 minutes for my table to be available after reservation time.
Just unacceptable!!!
But again, food is excellent!!!

As Foodies we strive to find that special place, as a home chef I’m very particular about food. Hands down this place was amazing, from start to finish, an experience we will want to enjoy again. The food had depth and flavor I can’t begin to describe, a must try for yourself. We will be back! A very happy Anniversary for us!

Divine! The tasting menu is a must and adding the wine pairing was a perfect touch. If your pockets can also handle the extra lamb, then your experience will be euphoric. The variety of dishes and wine are immense. Each piece is very thoughtful, unique and aesthetically pleasing with fresh seasonal ingredients. Detailed explanations and fabulous service by every staff member. A beautiful Indian inspired experience with a Miami vibe.

Had lunch on a recent visit. The menu is limited at lunch- small price to pay for perfection though. Really great food and service. Loved the décor as well. Far exceeded my expectations. My only regret is that I was unable to go back for dinner on this trip!! I don't think the restaurant is pricey - it is good value for the experience. Highly recommended.
