Terrible place, poor attention to detail and awful service..... stay well away! Rooms not cleaned to standard you would expect we could go on and on.

WANT COLD CRUNCHY OILY FOOD & SLOW DELIVERY! You've come to the right place. The food took over 2 hours to arrive, despite being told that our food will be with us in 10 minutes every 30 minutes after the expected time of arrival. This was particularly traumatic experience as one of the diners was diabetic. When you order, don't... More

My daughter and I went here on a Saturday afternoon and we were the only customers. The manager seated us on a sofa with a very high table. We presumed we would be moved to the restaurant. Anyway, after a long wait, drinks orders were taken. I ordered two pints of cider and black...both for my daughter as I don't... More

Awful! Booked a table for my fiancee's 30th birthday with friends and family. After we'd eventually ordered starters we were told that they needed the table by 9pm (by now it was 7.30). I explained that nothing had been mentioned when I booked the table, which they apologised for but the table had been booked from 9, so we had... More

Visited the Haveli in City Road a few times over the years and always had an enjoyable experience. Admittedly we had not been for a year or so and went in February with a Groupon purchased as a Xmas present from our son. When we arrived we were treated very shabbily by the surly and unwelcoming Owner? or Manager? We... More

Haveli has changed it's name and menu since I last went there. They are now called Dabbawalla. I'd still recommmend them however. The food is always nicely presented and I would say competitively priced. With the new menu they do thalis for meat eater and veggys. The staff are really friendly and helpful. My only disappointment was that they didn't... More

http://www.havelicardiff.co.uk/ Really nice restaurant on City Road (not an industrial estate). Food is incredible. Restaurant is classy/new/cool. Have a look on their website for more images, menu, offers. Cater for Vegan & Vegetarian too. Highly recommend
