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 food was delicious, however the service was very poor. For being such a small restaurant I was amazed when the waitress had not come by to check up on us for over 20 minutes after we finished our dinner. We wanted to try the desserts but after waiting so long for our server, I just asked for the check and left. I would order take out because of the quality and taste of the food but will not dine in again.

    The food is amazing and there’s a wide selection including vegan entrees. The staff is friendly and the appetizers arrived within minutes. Additionally, it’s a good value for the great food by Miami standards and pricing. Dinner for 3 with 2 appetizers, a beer and 2 wines was about $170.

    Had no choice but to leave a auto tip of 20% but the service was below par. We reached there early and waited at the bar with drinks as our reservation time came. When it was time in spite of knowing its a special birthday reservation we were seated at the worst possible seat in spite of empty tables inside and outside. They were understaffed and the food was rushed. The staff was rude. We ordered tasting menu and were told it's too late to order a tasting. Our server was kind enough to push for it... well why didn't they put the time constraints on the menu then! Will never visit again, great food alone doesn't compensate for rude customer service.

    Definitely not worth Mitchlen recognition. I took the overall sampler menu and tried a lot of things. Naan is cooked in a tandoor not on the grill. The chicken tikka masala mediocre. The lamb curry mediocre. The fish curry passable. Need I say more? The chef butchered what should have been traditional signature Indian dishes Leaving not even a shred of authenticity. The one exception. The chicken kebabs. At least he got that right. I have been to a lot of Michelin and Michelin star rated restaurants around the world. This one is definitely not part of that club. Definitely not the sophistication of traditional North Indian cuisine

    Service and staff knowledge was fantastic! And very attentive. Music was benign, and interesting Indian music would have been nicer. Chairs are uncomfortably close to the bottom of the table edge and therefore uncomfortable. Cocktails are limited to sake/cider/wine. Standouts on the menu: samosas, short rib dosa, tuna, lamb, chicken tikka, green millet. Menu in restaurant is different than what is currently online. Delicious food!

    The truth is I am not a big Indian food eater. Now that said, we did a sample menu, and everything that was brought to the table was good. Andres, our server, was good at explaining what they were bringing to the table. Good for a group to enjoy an interactive menu.

    Delicious Indian food with fresh ingredients. The 'snacks' are on the large side so we should have only ordered one for two people. But on the upside we took leftovers home.

    Overall great experience with very good food and helpful staff. Front desk people need to be a little more courteous and personable. We had reservations for 7 PM and all but 2 tables inside were empty at the moment we got there. Yet, they(she) made us wait 10 minutes to sit inside because we did not want to sit out side where she had statutes to sit us down. It was very uncomfortable and unacceptable to make us wait while all tables were empty and they had plenty of wait staff just waiting by the kitchen area.

    Have been there many times; menu has changed and gotten slightly pricier. Food is as good as ever. Okra fries were new and excellent. Charred corn and fish with tumeric were outstanding, as was the mango lassi. I've never had anything less than an excellent meal there. Flavors are unique. Notwithstanding the addition of new restaurants to the "group" (Orno and Mamey) this place continues cranking out great food.

    As always the food is exceptional. The service was spotty, probably because of employee shortages. I truly appreciate the option of outdoor dining, unfortunately every time we go, there is some amateurish band playing at full volume nearby.

    We ate outside on a weekday, so there wasn’t such a large crowd. Also, noise level was more quiet than inside. The appetizers & main course were very good & the service was excellent. However, this restaurant is pricey (4 oz mahi mahi in coconut/turmeric sauce served with basmati rice was $31).

    Restaurant had a leak on the floor which caused our shoes and clothes to get wet, personnel did nothing to solve it (changing tables, moping the floor etcz, NOTHING). Food was really spicy and our waitress wasn't cooperative or accommodating.
