Buffet Lunch at Haveli Indian Restaurant - Forest Hills

  • This location is shown only to members

Haveli is a beautiful restaurant that is nicely decorated with large crystal chandeliers, lovely furniture and Indian paintings on the wall. There is also a bar in the back with a lounge area.

Haveli is a term used to describe a mansion in the Indian subcontinent where the nobles, high priests, landlords and the affluent would live and entertain their guests. The word is derived from the Persian word HAWLI, meaning “ an enclosed place”.

For those of you who have never tried Indian cuisine, don't let that deter you from joining us.  We have had a few meetups here and everyone loved the food.  The service is excellent and they let us sit and chat as long as we want.

The buffet is a perfect way to sample several things and see what you like. The buffet will have salad and basmati rice which is a good starting point.  There will also be some basic food that is flavorful but not spicy, and very delicious, like tandoori chicken and chicken tikka masala.

Come join us for some delicious food and excellent company. You won't be disappointed. The food is delicious, inexpensive and the place is beautiful!

Hope you can join us!

    I was just wondering whether there was still any chance of coming today. Meetup indicated in an email that there might be a spot left. Thanks!

    May 17

    • Ivy

      Glad you saw my post. You may have to look on the OTHER SIDE of Queens Blvd or on the side streets behind the restaurant. You will find something since many people will be out with their cars on such a nice day. See you later!

      May 17

    • Susan T

      Ivy - I'm so sorry. I left Hoboken at 11:30 thinking that would be plenty of time to make it. By 12:40 I was still on the West Side of Manhattan, and I know you want people to be prompt. I do take my RSVP's seriously, so I hope I'll still have a chance to meet you all on one of your next meetings.

    I would love to go, but I have Yankee tickets. Please plan something like this again. This is a group I would really like to do things with.

      Thanks! I come to Queens for the delicious food, so feel free to book ethnic Queens. I have Yankee Saturday home game tickets for the season.

      My meetups are generally on Saturday afternoons, occasionally during the week if there is something early in the evening that would be of interest. As the weather warms up, I sometimes do Friday night events for Free museum Fridays. Hopefully, you will be able to attend something in the near future. :-)

    I love Indian food, and have been to this restaurant, but I am going out of town and don't know if I'll be back by then. I don't want to take a spot and have to back out later, so I will have to catch you another time. I am looking forward to meeting this group...

    May 3, 2014

    • Ivy

      Hi Marian. I appreciate you being so considerate. Thank you. If you find out that you will be here and can attend, just email me directly if the meetup is full and I will get you in.

    Hi -- I won't be able to join you on May 17. My friend from Arizona will be staying with me that weekend. I'll see you at the next meetup.

    May 3, 2014

    • Ivy

      OK. If you would like to come with your friend, you are welcome to do so. Just email me and let me know. Thanks.

    Ladies, I posted the CORRECT MAP above next to the travel info. The restaurant is on the NORTH SIDE of Queens Blvd, between 77th Ave & 78th Ave. It has a red awning, as does the restaurant next door to it so be sure to enter the correct restaurant. :-)

    My son is getting his PhD that weekend so I must pass. Next time!

      How exciting for you and your family. Have a wonderful time. Catch you next time.

  • Diane

    The map is showing the restaurant to be on 67th Rd. rather than 77th Rd. I think this happened before. For some reason, Google maps is off.

    May 2, 2014

    • Ivy

      Diane, the restaurant is between 77th Ave & 78th Ave. I will post a small map now. Thanks for the info. :-)
