Indian – Haveli

You might ask as you pull into the parking lot for Haveli’s. If the affirmative answer doesn’t give you pause, the fact that the restaurant sits smack-dab in the middle of an industrial part of Page Avenue might make you want to keep driving. Don’t. Instead, park the car, walk inside and immediately be whisked into a world of sub-continental delights. Soak up the rich vegetable korma or tangy chicken tikka masala with garlicky naan for India’s version of comfort food, or step out of your comfort zone with the goat achari, a fragrant and mildly spicy concoction served over basmati. With such a dizzying array of curries, biryanis and vindaloos, it can be overwhelming to decide what to get. Thankfully, Haveli does a lunch buffet — a big step up from that Shoney’s salad bar.
