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."

Llegamos 9:30pm y siento que nos apuraron para pedir y terminar. Solo por eso no les di 5/5

Overall a nice experience. Service could have been more attentive, but it was good and the food was good as well, maybe a bit on the pricey end, but tasted good. Will be back.

After having an amazing experience at Mamey, we were excited to try Chef Patel’s other restaurant Ghee. The food was good, especially the Pork Vindaloo, but the staff was a bit snotty. When we arrived and there was no one in the outside dining area to greet us, my fully-vaccinated husband stepped inside to check-in and the staff freaked out on him because he didn’t have a mask even though the law no longer requires them. He offered to put one on if they gave him one (we haven’t been to a business in the last year that doesn’t keep a supply at the door) but they didn’t have any. We were seated outside and then told point blank to not enter the restaurant even to use the restrooms since we “hadn’t brought masks with us.” I respect it when a business has policies but politely providing a 5 cent mask (esp for the the prices they charge - $9 beer I get elsewhere for $5) would have been much better than shaming the customers with what felt like nothing but virtue-signaling). Good food but we won’t be back to such an unwelcoming place.

It may not be necessary to make a reservation. We arrived 15 minutes before our reservation time and watched 2 groups without reservations be seated before us. Otherwise, it’s a lovely experience. The servers are knowledgeable and attentive. The food and cocktails are delicious. This is one of our favorite spots for dinner.

I have eaten at Ghee several times but not in the last 2 yrs. The food was not as flavorful as past experiences but certainly still pleasant. We sat outside due to Covid concerns and the setup was great but did change the experience from being inside.

Crispy Cauliflower had absolutely raw rice flour batter tugged between the florets inside, pointed out to the server, he said,” he will tell inside”, nothing happened after that.

The garlic naan was raw at some spots.

Whole hog fish and lamb vindaloo were superb.

The best food I've had in a loooonnnggg time. Full of flavor and the servers are amazing. It was such an emotional experience I can't even explain it. I honestly felt like crying 🤣🤣🤣. I felt like I was invited in to experience someone else's culture and I could taste the history. As a Black person it would be the equivalent to saying somebody's Grandma made the food. Like it is hands down one of my favorite restaurants now. I will definitely become a regular here. I am in love❣️ we ordered so much we had plenty to take home and it's also a great place for families, friends and chosen families to gather. You will naturally share food because everything is amazing. This is a great date night restaurant. If you want to impress someone and really knock thier socks off this is the place to go. I will say it's the perfect place to get engaged at honestly. We ordered the Chicken Tikka Masala, Kerala Lamb, The Local Fish, The Vegetable Samosa Chaat and the Garlic Naan Bread and all of it was to die for 🤤 we plan to try the whole menu at some point so go ahead and make your reservation, you know you want to!
