Indian
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."

Loved the food, great spot. However, they dont have highchairs and we had our 1 year old with us, so he had nowhere to sit. It really ruined the experience for us.

Enjoyed celebrating my birthday here with my family. Food was great - we ordered a number of appetizers and entrees and, with the exception of the lamb kebabs, was delicious (chef forgot to add masala to the lamb kebab). The staff was friendly and our waiter was attentive. Highly recommend this place and will definitely come back.

Finally some authentic Indian food in Miami. Each dish is incredibly flavourful with a perfect choice of Indian spices. I like that the menu is authentic with a modern touch. They even grow their own vegetables. The best Indian place in Miami!

The food is very spicy and the menu doesn’t offer any mild option. We tried 5 dishes and were disappointed by all of them. We ended up ordering additional rice and naan as we didn’t like the main courses. The service was also not very friendly.. A big disappointment!

Wonderful mix of Indian-inspired new dishes and traditional dishes with an interesting new twist. The menu changes because chef uses fresh farm-to-table ingredients. We shared the cauliflower starter and the lychee and cucumber starter -- both excellent. I ordered the black grouper in tamarind, it was fresh (brought in that day) and tasted outstanding. The service was very good, except the kitchen took some time getting everyone's food out; one member of our party had to wait nearly 10 minutes later than the rest of us. The drinks are yummy too. Highly recommend the experience!

We had a wonderful dinner at Ghee. Started with the tuna appetizer which was such a taste treat! Then the cauliflower appetizer which was very good. Then shared the chicken tikka masala, the lamb shish kabob, and the mahi mahi - accompanied by the wheat naan, and garlic naan and rice. All were simply delicious! Our waiter helped us to make our selections, which we appreciated. We left very happy and look forward to returning.

If a Michelin star comes to Florida, it will be because of Chef Niven and Rancho Patel. We flew in just for this meal. Well worth the trip.
