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."

Expensive passable non-Indian, but Indian-inspired, food, with an attentive and friendly Wating staff, but really uncool “attitudy” reception. We are Indian food aficionados and frequent dine-out’ers, but unfortunately, we won’t be coming back - and don’t really recommend anyone going.

The food was excellent as always. Service was very poor. Our waiter ignored us after we placed the order. He didn’t check on us to see if everything was ok, if we needed more drinks; never pick up dirty plates. Just brought us the check!
Never happened before!

Love this place! Second time we go and again, it was a great experience. Food and service is amazing! If you can, I highly recommend you try the 3 course meal for $55pp. It is literally almost everything on the menu and so worth it! When we got there I wasn’t sure they were still offering that since it had been about a year since we last went and was struggling on what to order because everything sounded amazing. Well, we didn’t have to decide because we got to try it all. Needless to say you need to do a little walking around the area to walk off all of the food, but it’s well worth it :) definitely recommend if you’re looking for some great Indian food.

I have had great indian food at some other restaurants so i feel i may be a but tough on Ghee but this is what u feel.
Service and ambience was as expected from a good restaurant. On the other hand, the food was ok. I had ordered three main course and i feel all of that had the same blend to its taste. Turmeric fish, lamb and saag paneer all tasted the same. They werent special and there are other restaurants in south florida that are way cheaper with great food

Amazing food. An explosion of flavors that you never get tired of. This is my wife and I’s 5th time visiting Ghee and we still can’t get enough. The tasting menu is where it’s at. Our server, Alonso, who we have had the pleasure of his company twice now, made our night special and full of laughter. If you have not had the opportunity to visit this gem in downtown Dadeland, I recommend put it on your list of a must visit and make a reservation to avoid any wait, but if not the staff will do their best to accommodate you.

Thought it was great. The waitress was great. We had the tuna appetizer and the local fish as a main course. Tuna was excellent, although a bit too spicy. Main course was not hot and the fish was overcooked. I'd go back and give them another try.

The food was delicious as always. We were particularly impressed with the outdoor setup fro COVID19 social distancing. Lovely tents and fans to keep the air moving and cool. Tables are set apart so no crowding. Waiters all wearing masks and menus are by QR code on the table. The best Ive seen in Miami for COVID19. Thank you Ghee!

Comparing with previous experiences pre-Covid, service was a bit choppy. Food took a long time after appetizers had been served right after ordering...will go again for sure, probably for lunch.
