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."

We were in town on business trip and heard this was best Indian food near downtown. Our favorite item was the Ghost Pepper Naan and the Chia martini. Our waiter was so attentive and provided great recommendations all during our meal. We will definitely come back.

The samosa and vindaloo were delicious. The vindaloo is not for everyone because of the space. The amount of space was perfect. The waiter was knowledgeable and sociable. Highly recommended

Pros: Food is always good! Wait staff are always nice! Drinks are decent.
Cons: The outside dining is now kinda boxed in, so it doesn’t feel like outdoor dining. They used to have alcohol drinks, they are now wine/beer/sake based…

We love Ghee!!! We have gone three times this past month because we are hooked!!!

The vegetable samosa and chutney as an appetizer is amazing. Sadly, the 2 portions have shrunk for the same price from the usual four we used to get, but we love them! Another yummy appetizer is their Charred corn, which is superbly delicious!! Lastly, get ready for their order of their short rib dosa.... Along with the dal, it is a meal by itself and super yummy.!

Their garlic naan is equal to no other. Order extra portions for the table since it is guaranteed to disappear quickly!

For dinner, my wife always orders their Tikka Masala which is is always a win-win! The best in town. On Christmas Eve she tried the tandoori chicken and found it extra moist and spicy, but she always comes back to the masala.

I personally like to try different dishes, but the lamb chops last night were disappointingly dry, did not finish them, so I won't order again. Next time I will order the spicy Kerala Lamb, which I think it's their best dish. The way they cook this dish is beyond description. You've just have got to try it yourself to discover how good it is!

On a side note, the amount of rice that comes with our main order is small, so we usually end up ordering an extra order to complete the balance with the food.

The service has been exemplary and courteous, but the place really fills up to max after 7 pm, so we tend to see their response time and accuracy drop somewhat due to the surge. We tend to head over at 5:30 pm to avoid the crowd, and we leave glad we did since it is always full. Make reservations ahead of weekends and holidays when they are open!

They have inside and outside seating, and are very comfortable. The outside seating is spacious and socially distant, and everyone wears masks at work.

I have eaten a lot of Indian food in my day (in the US and outside) and this is among the very best. The lamb neck is outstanding and probably enough for two. The sauce was superb. Do not skip the sticky toffee pudding for dessert.

Generally this restaurant is really good but my most recent experience in Dec 2021 was subpar. Service and food wasn’t great. Hopefully it was an off night.

Multiple issues but good food.

Issues include :
not being able to use restroom (only 1) before and after meal to wash hands.
Timing confusing booked for 9 then told by staff they close at 9…
Bday celebration? Forgot!
Dessert issue
Mandatory tasting menu? Not worth the value

Outdoor dining is perfect. The ideal roof coverage, potted plants block off vehicular lights, fans to cool off the area. Music is loud enough to hear.

Incredible Indian food. Limited menu options, but the stuff they had was delicious and enjoyable.
I ordered the Chicken Tikka Masala, Kerala Lamb, Mustard Fish, Shrimps, Naans, Tea, and Gulab Jamun.
Everything except the Gulab Jamun we're excellent. Gulab Jamun, we're terrible and significantly overpriced for the quality.

Ghee was one of my favorite spots in Midtown/Design District. Decided to make the drive down to Kendall but was disappointed to see the space being cold, not cozy at all. The lights should be dimmed much more. Plating was very poor, looked like a home cooked plate. Drinks are fantastic as usual and everyone was super friendly. Coming from Miami Beach, the drive is not worth it though.

A great hidden gem in the heart of downtown Dadeland. Annie was a great waitress making sure she answered all our questions and provided suggestions. Loved the ambiance. Really glad I made reservations because it was a full house. Food was authentic and delicious. The corn snack and yellowfin tuna bhel were delicious! Everything is served family style (which I loved) so it feeds 2-3 people. The grouper was tender and delicious along with the chicken tikka masala which is a fan favorite.
