Located in Glynburn Plaza along Glynburn Road in Firle, Haveli Indian Restaurant offers the typical Indian dishes, as well as a few more unique dishes. Complimentary pappadums are served when you dine there, to help sate your appetite while you wait for your dishes to arrive.

As its name suggests, the Seafood Biryani is notable for including seafood, which is something we have not seen before at the Indian restaurants we have visited. Both the prawns and fish in the dish were cooked just right and the dish had a good amount of spicy flavour. The dish is best enjoyed with the raita served alongside it to temper the spicy flavour. If you prefer, there is the choice of leaving out one of the seafood ingredients when ordering the dish.

One of the dishes that is listed as a chef's special, the chunks of the chicken in their Haveli Spicy Chicken were tender, and there was enough dried chilli to provide a delectable spicy flavour.

While we thought the beef in their Beef Do Pyaza was a bit tough, the gravy gave the dish a distinctive taste that is surprisingly suitable for those not used to spicy foods. There were chunks of onions of a good size to provide extra texture.

Haveli's Naan Bread had the fluffy texture we expected from a good Naan and its plain flavour makes it a good foil to their spicy curries. We also ordered the Garlic Naan, which had a topping of garlic to add extra flavour. We thought there could have been a bit more garlic to make it live up to its name.

If you choose to dine-in, you can choose to enjoy their Thali platters, which consist of a selection of curries, rice, Plain Naan, raita, pickles, paddadams and Gulab Jamun (an Indian dessert made from milk and covered in a sugar syrup). The décor of the restaurant gave it slightly formal feel. Parking is easy with off-street parking provided by Gynburn Plaza carpark.
