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."

    I love Ghee, but there was only one waitress for most of the room. It was very difficult to get her attention and everything went very slowly.

    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.

    Ghee has great food. The dishes are tasty, beautiful and of a high caliber. That's the best thing about the restaurant. The space itself is also pleasant and offers good ambiance for the experience. Where the restaurant fails completely is with the unfriendly hostesses and the inexperienced and untrained manager Victoria. The waiters are knowledgeable about the various dishes and know their food but their talents end there. Inexperienced and lost staff risk ruining an otherwise wonderful restaurant.

    I happened to go to this restaurant because it was a Michelin one star restaurant and had good reviews. We were the first was there at 5 Pm and no one else was in inside. My favorite dish is the Chicken tikka masala which is served with white meat on a curry sauce. Sadly, I discovered that no dish in the menu was served with white chicken meat which was a bummer for me since I only like white meat. My wife order Lamb and my daughter order some type of rice with a piece of chicken on top of rice, their dishes according to them we’re good to go. During the waiting period for their dishes I noticed several full service violations which is not expected from a one star Michelin restaurant. For example, I noticed the quality control person serving rice in a bowl and then wiping the rice outside the bowl and pushing the rice around the outside of the bowl back into the bowl with her fingers. Second example, when I asked my server for extra crispy tortillas, he was observed grabbing the tortillas with his bare hands no gloves. Per example, I observed one of the cooks placing some type of numb bread into a basket with his bare hands again no gloves. This is Very acceptable for a One Star Michelin restaurant and because food service personnel are trained to properly handle food with gloves to avoid food illness cross-contamination. If I could live with the fact that there was no white meat; However, after observing the way they handle the food at least what I could catch, I will never go back to this place again as who knows what other miss-practice they are doing in the back.

    For all the hype we heard, it was ok. We ordered the vegetable kofta. This is typically suppose to be a little on the sweeter side, however, it has very strong masala. It wasn’t spicy, but the aftertaste of the masala was very very strong. The drinks were highly ok. Nothing that stuck as great or signature. The deserts were good, though! Gulab Jamun and sandwich ice cream! Dal Makhani was good.

    The process to be seated was smooth and we didn't have to wait. Considering that it was Mother's Day, there was no delay in the food service. We were approached by a server as soon as we were seated. The food was delicious but the portions could be a bit larger given the price point. The menu did not clearly state that the tandoori chicken was not served with rice (nor did it state what it was served with) and the server's heavy accent did not help with the explanation either. They were kind enough to give us some rice in addition to the small portion of vegetables it came with. Everything was tasty!!!
