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."

    I have been to Ghee several times over the years. They have maintained a high level of quality and service over the years, even as their principal has gone on to open other restaurants. The food is consistently excellent, and very vegetarian friendly as well. Ghee is one of the best restaurants in Miami, and doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

    I loved Ghee and so want to give it 5 stars but there were some misses for me and hence 4. I went for the Diwali pri-fixe. I understand they don't do pri-fixe very often hence some of our food was scattered in terms of arrival. We were offered 1 course twice and my husband got the last of lamp chop which was very burnt and overcooked. The owner/head chef offered personal apology and even gave us extra desserts to take home. However when I am driving 85 miles for a meal, this did leave a bad taste as he was particularly excited about the lamb. Other than these two things, the food was very fresh (specially the appetizers) and tasty. My favorite was the Chevdo chaat, avocado doubles and khandvi. The team doesn't shy away from spices and/or overloading the food with dairy to keep it super creamy. I would come back again,

    Overpriced drinks (the place doesn’t have a liquor license…. But does a sake based cocktail really have to be $14? ). Food is not the typical Indian…. The waitress talked me into a lamb neck cooked for 4 days or something. In the end, it turned out to be a $38 of some meat and fat simmering in gravy. The outdoor patio could use some sprucing up (do we really have to have to tables on the concrete street slab? Wooden deck anyone?

    Great place to eat and wonderful service but I’m very curious as to why Ghee would offer a reservation so close to the time that the kitchen and establishment closes?! Kind of ridiculous if you ask me. We felt rushed to order and by time we got our food, the crew was cleaning up the restaurant.

    The food was delicious, however the service was very poor. For being such a small restaurant I was amazed when the waitress had not come by to check up on us for over 20 minutes after we finished our dinner. We wanted to try the desserts but after waiting so long for our server, I just asked for the check and left. I would order take out because of the quality and taste of the food but will not dine in again.

    The food is amazing and there’s a wide selection including vegan entrees. The staff is friendly and the appetizers arrived within minutes. Additionally, it’s a good value for the great food by Miami standards and pricing. Dinner for 3 with 2 appetizers, a beer and 2 wines was about $170.

    Had no choice but to leave a auto tip of 20% but the service was below par. We reached there early and waited at the bar with drinks as our reservation time came. When it was time in spite of knowing its a special birthday reservation we were seated at the worst possible seat in spite of empty tables inside and outside. They were understaffed and the food was rushed. The staff was rude. We ordered tasting menu and were told it's too late to order a tasting. Our server was kind enough to push for it... well why didn't they put the time constraints on the menu then! Will never visit again, great food alone doesn't compensate for rude customer service.

    Definitely not worth Mitchlen recognition. I took the overall sampler menu and tried a lot of things. Naan is cooked in a tandoor not on the grill. The chicken tikka masala mediocre. The lamb curry mediocre. The fish curry passable. Need I say more? The chef butchered what should have been traditional signature Indian dishes Leaving not even a shred of authenticity. The one exception. The chicken kebabs. At least he got that right. I have been to a lot of Michelin and Michelin star rated restaurants around the world. This one is definitely not part of that club. Definitely not the sophistication of traditional North Indian cuisine
