I visited this place today with my husband for dinner and my experience was terrible. The Pakoras in sabji platter was not cooked properly. I believe Samosas were few days old and re-fried many times. Most importantly the Yellow Dal which we ordered for main course was rotten/spoiled and when I told them about it, they said that it was good according to their chef. Apparently they said in an indirect manner, that I was lying. Why would I do such a thing when I ordered for it myself. My husband also said that Dal was rotten/spoiled and we asked them not to bag it in the end (which we did not eat obviously) and instead of saying sorry for serving spoiled food they charged us for it. The naans were super small in size as compare to any other Indian restaurant near by this area. We asked them to make our food hot and spicy which was not even medium spicy. If I put everything aside still I am unable to understand that why I had to pay for a spoiled Dal. I have to give them one star because there is no option for ZERO. On a different note Sneha, the girl who was serving to us was very nice. Not a good place to visit and complete waste of money...
I would rather give zero rating for this restaurant had there been an option. The food was so worse, that these guys are looting people in the name of Indian authentic food. Not even a single dish was good enough and the worst ever meal I ever had in my 30 years of life. You must be wondering about other reviews why they were so good. Most people who come to this place are local English people and they might not be aware of what authentic Indian food tastes like. This is based on my observations of this place when I visited and what Ive seen happening there. The dosa guy who prepares dosas on demand was not even ready to answer what varieties he can offer and just pours the batter that he has on pan and puts onions and other stuff just to call it dosa. The worst dosa one can have I would say. The simpler recipe is also not good her is all I wanted to say. You guys are just looting people man. Please stop doing it in the name of India.
I went to this restaurant yesterday for my friends farewell dinner party ... I really felt disappointed about their service... Lot of waiting time and served semi cooked food and worst in class guest handling etc... I used to visit this hotel regularly from new Britain found individual orders good and literally fought with all my colleagues to choose this and finally got screwed... I never repeat to this hotel ... Found their staffs also non friendly and behaved very cheap even for small things ... I didnt expect these kind of guest handling and this wasnt even happened to us in India... I think this hotel management is quite negligence nowadays. We most of us travelled from new Britain and Manchester and ended up with worst food and bad experience ...

I drove down to Haveli from Windsor based on recommendations and reviews. I was disappointed. The buffet was average and seemed to be a dumping ground for the weeks leftovers. The dal soup was so-so. For entrees on the buffet, there was dal makhani which was heavy with ghee. The Chicken Tikki Masala was heavy as well. The Curry chicken was lack-lustre and had no spicy taste. They had the vegetable dumplings in a heavy sauce as well. I did not find the food spicy enough. It was pretty bland and tasted left over. Its too far for me to give it another try on another day. Id not go back. If youre coming from Hartford, youre better off stopping at Rocky Hill at Priyas.
Worst experience. We went to this restaurant yesterday for a dinner buffet, all most they served all their worst rated food and took their own time ... Nothing was good.We drove 20 miles to reach this restaurant and at the end realized that waste of money and time for a worst tasting food...they refused even to serve fennel seeds at the end and restaurant manager showed his rigid face when we asked...better keep away from this place guys...no professional service ...
Second visit here and very happy with both experiences. The food is fantastic. We had the chicken Tikka, lamb curry, and Shahi paneer. All three dishes were prepared very well. Their garlic naan is some of the best Ive had, loads of garlic and not too dry. We left feeling very satisfied with our meal. I would love to see an India pale ale served at more restaurants, but that a request not a criticism. Service was good also, very attentive. Well be back for sure.
It is April 1st 1.08 pm.I am at HAVELI Restraunt, MiddleTown CT. Their lunch Buffet is amazing.But the staff lacks basic etiquette. While eating, the waters came quite a few times to ask for bill.It felt like we were un-welcomed.No way they should come while we are enjoying our meal and interrupt to pay the bill which eventually we will once we are done. I would strongly recommend you guys to NOT to visit there. They should learn to treat people with respect.
The food would be average for Indian taste pallets as its quite bland but for others it should be quite good! For starters they had salad,samosa chat & potato/cauliflower fritters(pakodas) for main course it was na an, pulav/plain rice, dal makhni,malai paneer,matar mushroom,beans curry,aaloo gobi, malai chicken & chicken curry. And for desert it was kheer & gulab jamun. Overall its a good experience.
Best Indian buffet in Connecticut I have been to. Lots of variety for both veg and non-veg. We regularly have Krishna cater our events. (And we also have had events at the restaurant). Everyone is always happy with the food and asks where the restaurant is so they can go there. At the restaurant we are always happy with the service. Theyll also have some South Indian dishes which is an added plus.

Have been a regular here since they first opened. The food is exceptional and the staff are professional and friendly.Over the years I have brought many family members and friends to dine here and they always go back. Several had been previously uninitiated to Indian Cuisine and have since become true fans. The weekend buffet is great and a fun and inexpensive way to introduce others to the menu....
Advertised as Handicapped Accessible but getting around the entrance doors which open into the ramp means you are dangerously close to stairs, very little room to get a wheelchair in. Our chair was literally four inches from the stair edge!! Rest room door is too small for wheel chair accessibility and have no hand rails. We could not use this place at all. This is NOT accessible.
Haveli Restaurant has a warm, welcoming atmosphere, a lovely staff, and delicious food. The weekend buffet is really a pretty sight, and has such wonderful delicacies I am making myself hungry just typing about it. I would say, if you or your dining companions are trying Indian cuisine for the first time, this is an excellent introduction to delicious, authentic Indian cooking.

The ambience is good and the staff is friendly. They would go out of their way to make customer happy! The bhindi Masala is one of the best food for vegetarians. It is a good place to order for parties to. However, if you have more than 30 people coming, it might be a good idea to just go for the catering. the Halls are not large enough for a party of more than 30 people.
