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."

                                                              The process to be seated was smooth and we didn't have to wait. Considering that it was Mother's Day, there was no delay in the food service. We were approached by a server as soon as we were seated. The food was delicious but the portions could be a bit larger given the price point. The menu did not clearly state that the tandoori chicken was not served with rice (nor did it state what it was served with) and the server's heavy accent did not help with the explanation either. They were kind enough to give us some rice in addition to the small portion of vegetables it came with. Everything was tasty!!!

                                                              Think of it as a modern, highly creative take on Indian food. Very innovative. My only teensy criticism is that Ghee often don't have mango chutney, and even when they offer you tamarind chutney instead, they give you a minuscule amount. Otherwise an all round great dining experience with a lovely ambience outdoors and noise level is moderate so you can actually have a conversation. Caution to those hard of hearing: It is very noisy indoors.

                                                              The food was very good and the service was also good. Our waiter was knowledgeable and seemed to know what we needed at every turn. I liked that the menu was simple and not too extensive but the food was very good.
