My family and I have been eating here for years. The quality had been uniformly very good and the service was fine. The quality suffered about after the merger with Bajara, but now seems to be back to what it was in the past. Well worth a visit.

The food I had this evening was so different than anything I ever had there before. This was not a change for the better. I'm thinking the restaurant has changed owners and or chefs.

Have been going here for many years. Tonight got the butter chicken and thought I might have to call 911 after having a bite. It was full of grease and all curdled. How could a chef present this? There are so many great Indian restaurants in the East Village -- do not go to Haveli.

it was 103 degrees out .when we walked in they sat us and imediately started serving water, not free tap water, $5.50 bottles after they served two of those they offered free water. meal was ok. when the bill came they were not satisfied with the $8.00 cash tip we left for a $54.00 bill for poor service i should have left nothing!

I went to Haveli with my wife this past Friday night to celebrate my birthday. The food was decent, comparable to the dishes that can be found at any of the multitude of Indian restaurants in the East Village, but the prices were high and the service was terrible. The waiter tried to up-sell us when we ordered a bottle of wine, the service generally was indifferent when it wasn't rude and the waiter had the audacity to question my 16% tip after the waitstaff forgot to bring out a birthday pastry as requested by my wife. I would never, ever go back to this restaurant, even if it were the last Indian restaurant in Manhattan.

I have ordered take-out from here, since they opened and will no more. The multiple and subtle spices used, used to be interesting. The curries now are banal and many appetizers/bread have a moldy water stench to them. Not worth the extra $s.
