Once Curry Row’s only dateworthy joint, Haveli is still one of the more genteel places to get your curry fix. Exceedingly polite waiters deliver well-prepared dishes from across the subcontinent: tasty tandoor-cooked jumbo shrimp; herb-studded Bombay-style sautéed chicken livers; and coriander-fragrant lamb balti.
