Buffet Lunch at Haveli Indian Restaurant - Forest Hills

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 wordHAWLI, meaning “ an enclosed place”.

For those of you who have never tried Indian cuisine, I thought it would be fun to be a little adventurous. We had a meetup here in the summer and everyone loved the food.

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 as we explore a new cuisine together. You won't be disappointed.

Hope you can join us!

    I had a wonderful time at Haveli today. We had 7 new members attending and everyone was delightful. Food was delicious, conversation flowed and I think lots of new friendships were made. I want to thank all the members for helping to make this a lovely afternoon for everyone. See you at the next meetup!

    Good news! I just spoke to the owner and they have reduced the buffet lunch to only $10.95. They are making extra food since we are coming on Saturday. Please be considerate of this group and the members. If you RSVP 'Yes' for a meetup, please be sure to attend. Otherwise, change your RSVP right away.

    If you are a NO SHOW, you will be removed from the group. I had to give my credit card to hold the reservation for 15 people. Thank you.

    To all the NYC ladies: This is a beautiful, upscale restaurant with excellent food and service. The subway is 5 minutes from the restaurant. We would love for you to join us for a buffet lunch. Queens is so close to Manhattan. We always come to NYC now it is your turn to take the train to Forest Hills. We had a meetup here and it was lovely. I eat here all the time and I know you will love it. Even if you have never had Indian food, I promise you will love the Basmatti Rice, Tandoori Chicken and Chicken Tikka Masala. Not spicy at all, just delicious. That's why a buffet is so can eat whatever you like and go back as many times as you want.

    Please join us at this beautiful restaurant. :-)
