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."

    Third time. Favorite Indian food in the Kendall area. You can make your own buffet if several go and order various items. The Dal Makhani is a standout. And the samosa is unique.

    As a first generation Indian immigrant I was less than excited to see another Indian fusion restaurant but in reading the menu I saw some creativity and interesting use of non standard proteins. So off we went. We were seated immediately in a cramped corner table by the kitchen. But we made the best of it. Our server was great and very knowledgeable about the menu. Our drinks arrived within minutes. I ordered a mango lassi and although nearly everything else was great this was not. My lassi was served in a ghee labeled plastic bottle obviously intended for mass market sale in a fresh market. The server alleged it was fresh but it was thick and homogenized, in west that fresh lassis never are. Yes overall it tasted good but not an auspicious start and disappointing that the Indian chef owner and manager didn’t recognize that freshness is mandatory at their prices.We had the tuna bhel and duck samosas as appetizers. The bagel was excellent but lacked some of the randomness of bhel. No potato, no tamarind chutney, no conflict it was upscale to the point of losing its street origin. Incredibly tasty and good but I was conflicted about whether it made me happy the way the original did. We wolfed it down because it was interesting and tasty. The samosas were filled with lovely duck confit and the cranberry chutney was divine. But the flour coating … it was thick not crispy, clearly baked, likely made in advance and rewarmed. It was I suspect gram flour dough and although this is some folks preference I prefer a flakier fried dough. Still we are it all and the fusion vision of Chef Patel was taking shape. Local proteins and local produce lead to amazing flavors.Now our entree which we split was the kerala lamb was perfect in every way possible. We loved it. The chutney plate brought back memories of my grandmother trying to force me to eat all of her various chutneys even though we were too full. I tasted each one and had my favorites but enjoyed them all.

    ghee was a wonderful experience. my wife and i did the 14 course tasting menu. the ambiance of the restaurant and the quality of the staff was top notch. everything ran like a well oiled machine. the food was tasty, fresh and (at times) innovative. a few of their dishes were reminiscent of dishes i make at home (im a decent enough indian cook so that’s not an insult) but many included twists that i hadn’t had before. regardless, it was an excellent experience from first to last.

    As always, a fabulous and delicious meal. This place is always adding new things and continues to make the oldies taste just as fabulous as they did the first time we had them! Only disappointment was that the duck confit samosa was unavailable. Sounds delightful ... hopefully next time. If they could turn off or turn down the music, it would be a five star rating across the board. That truly is my only complaint about the evening and the experience.

    Overall it was disappointing. The broccoli was the only really good dish. The steamed rice was cold. The naan was brunt. The music outside was ridiculously loud. The server. Pleasant enough, never corrected anything. Never suggested a replacement for the unacceptable meals. Would not return.

    Beautiful restaurant- Not the usual Indian fare-dishes were innovative & fresh from chef’s farm! There were cruncy elements I enjoyed like in pumpkin naan. However the papadums were too salty, and the prices are high. I do recommend the chutneys, and i definitely want to go back & try other dishes. PS- parking is underground 1 block east of the restaurant

    Food and drinks were amazing! We ordered duck confit samosas, the smoked lamb neck, and beef korma. Everything was delicious. Our waitress was friendly and made good recommendations. That said, after receiving our meal, no one came back to check in on us, and we had to physically get up and go inside to the bar to flag our waitress down and request boxes and a check. Would still highly recommend given the food.

    Amazing experience. I highly recommend the tasting menu. The food is very innovative but is also delicious. The restaurant is quite small, but it wasn't crowded. I felt like they could've removed a few empty tables, which would've made things even better. The food is among the best Indian food I've had. I highly recommend the tuna-avocado chaat and the lamb.

    Excellent food with a great range of choices, so the chef's tasting menu (very reasonably priced by the way) is a very good option to "meet the menu." There is also an extensive Ala carte selection and everything is very fresh - the chef grows most of the produce himself, and the fish is fresh of the local boat. The service staff is exceptionally well trained (many have been at the restaurant since it opened in 2017) and are great ambassadors for the food, able to explain how each dish is made and to navigate any food restrictions diners may have. There is a modest wine list and a good selection of beer and non-alcoholic drinks available. Dining at Ghee is a first rate experience for longtime devotees of Indian food and newcomers as well. Highly recommend, reservations essential but same day seating is often available.

    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.
