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."

Did a reservation here as I passed by Ghee a few times and noticed that it would always be full. My date and I ordered a Shortrib Dosa (salty), Turmeric Marinated Grouper (pretty good), and a Lamb Kefta (salty as well). The food for the most part was "okay" but, the service there was A-1-A. Also recommend the Chai Tea after dinner to clean the palate.

Quite honestly the blandest most mundane curry and indian style food I've ever had. Nothing really spoke to my wife and I like "WOW". The charred mushrooms were good and the naan was good, but look, these are inherently tasty food items. The rest of the menu failed to inspire. The food we had was ok, not terrible, just 'fair'. We got out only once a week since its the only time we have to get away from the kids, and the reality is we want to be impressed. Even the Dark Chocolate mouse (and we are chocolate lovers) was very lame. Not even that "dark". Anyway, hope they figure out what they are doing wrong, because we won't be back.

This restaurant does not disappoint! This is our second time here and it is superb. We had the tasting menu both times. We also had some dietary restrictions for our family members that accompanied us and the entire wait staff was very attentive with their needs.
All the entrées & courses are very fresh, tasty and unique and presented beautifully.
We will continue to go back and introduce friends and family to this delightful dining experience in the future!

They definitely have it going on here. This was our second time eating there, & it was as good or better than the first. Everything we've had so far was truly outstanding, imaginative, obviously fresh & cooked to perfection. They have taken farm to table to a whole new level. Besides the great food, the staff are all friendly, knowledgeable, & attentive. They all seem to genuinely care that you have a great experience there. Without a doubt, this is our new favorite place to eat in Miami.

Wow wow wowwwww. The food here is out of this world. We always get the puffed rice with avocado and tuna. The charred corn has so much flavor. We tried the green mango salad and it was the perfect bite of refreshing flavor. One thing I do NOT recommend is the palate cleanser at the end of the meal. Don’t do it lol.

Ghee is always a great idea! I have enjoyed the food, drinks and friendly service since the opening. Everyone I have introduced to Ghee has become as much a fan as me. My favorites are the crispy cauliflower, backyard pakora, millet, ghost pepper cheddar naan, chicken tikka, lamb neck, pork belly vindaloo. I could go on and on!

The appetizers are amazing!! The entrees were not what we expected but were good. The restaurant was busy in a Thursday evening so it took a while for the waiter to
Come. The lighting could be more welcoming and some acoustic treatment for the noise

It is a very pleasant restaurants and the service was great. All the staff was courteous and friendly. i was disappointed with the food, though. it did not carry the punch i was expecting. the portions are tiny and it was hard to share among 4 people the various dishes we ordered as appetizers. we each ordered a main course and those were ok but as i said, lack punch. i was expecting a more interesting twist on indian food. maybe i will give it a second try just my husband and i.
