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."

    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.

    Great location. Food is wonderful but really the service ties the whole place together. Any question you ask any of your waiters, they will answer with absolute certainty. They are attentive and friendly and one of the main reasons why I always come back!

    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).

    The food was okay but it didn’t taste authentic. The tikka masala we ordered tasted like it it was a pre made curry. No better than a frozen curry meal.

    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.

    The hostess is always terrible. With reservations they still sit you in the worst spots if you go earlier than 7PM. 2 seat tables are the worst. They place you next to rice bags and connected to the wall. If you ask to be seated in a better table they refuse even if the restaurant is empty. People are starting to walk out on them.

    Excited to try out this food and wanting to impress my cousin from DC, we drove an hour and a half to get there. The food did not disappoint. We opted to try multiple offering from their appetizers instead of ordering entrees just so we could have more of a sampling of the flavors they offered. Wow! The carrot hummus we were told was new on the menu. Who knew naan paired with Arabic zaatar and carrots in hummus would be so divine. The duck confit samosas were divine and the tuna with avocado omg! So many of my taste buds were jumping for joy all at the same time. Beyond the food, we were greeted by the owner who kindly enquired about our food to make sure our experience was wonderful. This place does it for me on every count and am happy to say I will be doing the drive again and again and again.

    I will preface that i came here solely as a result of it being awarded a Bib Gourmand and as I am a fan of Chef Nevin’s Orno and Mamey. However, Ghee, the flagship misses the mark. I had been here originally when they opened and was not impressed. This visit felt likewise. We arrived and were attended by Nathan the most proficient of the rotating waiters assigned to us, some who could not enunciate their words. We opted for the tasting menu; a let down. It started with the first dish—a mystery—as I could not understand the waitress with her mumbled words. Elocution is lost on those under 35. The next dish was ______ (blank on purpose) was served cold. The food was then brought out at such warp speed that we had to ask the server to slow down the tempo of the service as we were not enjoying the fast pace of the plates coming out and as they were tepid, were getting colder by the minute. This is supposed to be a Michelin rated establishment, not a cafeteria. Most of the meal and the wine were served off temperature. The Albariño was room temperature—a no no. The dishes’ were served luke warm. At the end of the meal we mentioned this to Nathan; to no avail other than, “I’ll mention it to the Chef, we appreciate the feed back.” All in all not worth the drive if you don’t live near it. I gave it four stars because the ingredients were phenomenal, had they been served at the correct temperature it would’ve been a solid five. Not sure if I will go out of the way since I have Bombay Durbar in the Grove so close.

    It is more of westernized fusion Indian restaurant. Ambiance and service were good. Parley G biscuits dessert was awesome. However, if anyone wants to have a real authentic Indian food, this is not the place.
