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."

    It was our first time, and we’ll definitely be back. Food (we had the lamb and tandoori chicken) and service was excellent, cocktails (tamarind sour was 🤞🏾) were flavorful, and you can’t beat the value for your dollar. Gem in Dadeland for sure!

    What an amazing Indian food experience at Ghee. And rightfully hyped Michelin rated restaurant!! The food, ambience, service were all top notch. The pakoras, Naan, Kofta, palak Paneer & dosas were incredible. One of the best Indian restaurants we've ever visited!!

    As always the team at ghee always out do themselves. When you think it cannot get any better the raise the bar. I am a loyal patron and plan on continuing to visit this amazing restaurant. The staff is more like a family and you can see how happy everyone is to be there and doing what they do to make ghee one of my favorite restaurants to visit.

    First time at this establishment and we were excited to go as we do love Indian food. First impression was the restaurant was very nice and welcoming but the policy of making you wait until your entire party arrives was not welcoming or helpful. We would have love to chill and order a drink at least. Especially since we had made a reservation through open table and had a 20 dollar per person deposit. We obviously were planning on having our full party show up. The second and only other issue we had was having to order your entire meal when placing your first or appetizer order. I understand some items may require more time it just seemed a bit rushed. The food overall was delicious and perfectly cooked. the must try items would be the Ghost pepper cheddar naan ( if you enjoy the hotter side of Indian food). The Lamb and Chicken Tikka was also exceptional. The crispy broccoli was a party favorite as well. We also tried 3 desserts and all were very good but the winner was the sticky date cake well done and very delicious. Would like to recommend them more just the seating and ordering issues may keep us away.

    It was “ok”. You get forced to do the tasting menu for everyone at the table even if you have a minor with you who may not like many of the dishes. Unnecessary. Don’t recommend doing it - pick your own dishes and you’ll save money.

    The server was fantastic, as was the food. The spice was at a good level for me with some foods being more spicy than others so there are options for all. The ghost pepper cheese naan was … well … HOT, duh🤭, but my husband finished it. Would def go back.

    It was all we could have asked for. My wife and I went with an appetite and they had all to please the entire palate. We had six plates (dosa, tuna bhel, ghost pepper Naan, lamb neck, marinated fish, and beef main. They were all so delicious, we even took just the curries home. We will most definitely be back very soon!

    Service not t great. Always entertaining when waiter thinks he or she does not need to write down an order and then has mistakes. Food was fine. Spice level not extremely customizable. Very Americanized. Mandatory automatic 21% tip before asking for additional 20% is offensive— especially for lunch with average service

    Wow! I can see how they earned the Michelin accolade! The food was phenomenal. The service was amazing. The food runners were so knowledgeable about every dish that came out. We had the Chefs Sampler and they modified for my vegetarian diet. Everything was delicious and while it seemed to look like small portions, we were content after every course and even had food leftover.

    Came to Ghee for dinner on a Friday night. The place was definitely busy to say the least but the staff was very friendly and attentive. The food came out in a timely manner and our waiter was super detailed explaining the dishes to us. this was my first time trying Indian food and i was not disappointed, this place was delicious. The food and the flavors were spectacular. I will definitely be coming back here again.

    I have never seen a waiter asking to order everything at once. Not drinks first, appetizers later, main dish thereafter; the restaurant needs the table soon because it is the busiest day of the week. Despite of the wrong approach, the waiter apologized but the pressure to order soon, order everything at once, pay and leave was there. The food was good, the menu was adjusted with higher prices. The tip was suggested at 25% and over; don't fall for it, leave what you think is right and avoid going on weekends.

    Food is good but since pandemic the menu seems far less imaginative. Prices are high and we felt as if servers are constantly trying to up sale things...most Indian places offer extra rice if needed. Not here, we were charged for it. As much as I loved this place years ago, changes in service and menu, as well as our last experience will probably be the last. And what's the deal with suggesting 25% tip/ your. Your prices skyrocket, which automatically means more tip. No need to abuse it. 15%-20% gratuity is the standard in the US.
