Located on the second floor of the Graha Irama building (close to the American Express office), the restaurant's dining area is set in a long, narrow L-shaped room. Dishes include such perennial favorites as chicken tikka, lamb curry, biryani rice and bitter Thai cucumbers simmered in chile and spices. The buffet lunch is especially popular among employees working in the nearby offices and embassies (a la carte menu available in the evenings). The small bar stocks a wide selection of drinks, including beers imported from India as well as the local Indonesian brands. Average cost per person: IDR100,000
MY BEST INDIAN DINNING EXPERIENCE IN BALI, EST INDIAN FOOD IN BALI
The building in which Queen's Tandoor exists has housed a number of restaurants in the past that did not seem to work! This one is going to be very different! Sensational Indian food served with no apologies. No toning down of taste! Indian chefs, imported Indian chillies and spices, imported Indian know-how! That all goes to making food that is traditionally Indian!
I have to admit that when I first saw Queen's Tandoor, and read the history, my gut feel was 'another franchise or Bali branch of a restaurant that 'works' in Java, but may not work here'. How wrong could I have been! If you are a lover of Indian cuisine then this is the restaurant you have been waiting for!
Just passing and want a quick snack? Real Samosas [vegetable, chicken or mutton] or Kebabs with a difference; the Vegetable Chilli ones are full of fire, whilst the Harra Bara Kebab consists of deep-fried patties of vegetable, cheese and paneer, delicately spiced.
No matter what meat you order [there is no beef or pork served here], the slow cooking method of the meat, in some cases previously marinated, ensures that the end product will always be tender and juicy. As for the accompanying sauces, they are all rich and full of flavour! That unique flavour, and aroma, of Indian cuisine!
From the tandoor a variety of Chicken Tikka: Plain, Harra [coriander, mint and green chilli], Jaffran [saffron, cumin and ginger], Achar [marinated in pickles]. Sheekh Kebabs are universally popular, and rightly so. Minced lamb mixed with herbs and saffron, moulded into a sausage shape, then charcoal grilled. Prawn, Fish and Cottage Cheese offerings are also from the Tandoor. There is even a vegetarian version of the Sheekh Kebab.
The only problem with eating at Queen's Tandoor is that it can be habit forming. At last we have quality Indian food, served in pleasant clean premises, with waiting staff that really want to help. Very habit forming!
Services are pathetic. Order food and relax...and relax....and relax. They take their own sweet time to serve bitter taste food. Prices are reasonable and ambiance is ok but they should upgrade the cook.
Haveli provides an excellent ambience in which to enjoy really authentic Indian Cuisine. A pleasurable difference between Haveli and other Indian Restaurants is that at Haveli one can enjoy Indian Cuisine from different parts of India - specially South India. In addition its Chat counter on weekend buffets is a real treat where one can feast on North Indian Chat varieties not available easily outside of India. I would specially recommend the buffet on weekends. We made it a habit of ours to enjoy the weekend buffet every week we were in Jakarta over a period of 2 years - never got tired of it - there was always variety and new dishes to enjoy.
I been to severals Indian Restaurant in Jakarta, and I still think this is the best Indian restaurant I ever been PLUS the atmosphere is very romantic..
The foods also great for over all, Very comfortable place, good services..
I would like to come back here again sometimes.. :)
I really recommended this restaurant for couples ;)
I have been many times to Haveli and will return.
This restaurant is often patronised by the local and expat Indian communities, especially on Sunday nights. That always tells me that the food is authentic and of good value.
The service is friendly and helpful, the food is North Indian in focus and sensational. I often also get take-away from this restaurant.
The ambiance is very comfortable and a little cheesy, but that simply makes it all the more fun! Often, there is a a trio of musicians singing many of the latest Bollywood songs.
Strongly recommend it!
