The direct translation from Urdu to English of Haveli The Yard is 'yard of a mansion', which gives you an idea of the sheer magnificence of this renowned eatery.
Unique in more ways than one, Haveli The Yard thinks far and wide by bringing together local Bristolian history and South Asian culture. The restaurant itself is beautiful and makes for a splendid place to celebrate any special occasion. Designed with the modern diner in mind, geometric light displays, contemporary seating and upside-down gardens on the ceilings do well to attract city dwellers and pleasure seekers. It's a picture of contemporary elegance.
Southern India is Haveli's playground and they're spicing up evenings with their own take on classic dishes. The mains put a decadent spin on butter chicken with a touch of saffron, British lamb shank with an aromatic ginger gravy and daily fish in a citrusy, cumin-rich sauce. The tandoor is also busy cooking up chicken tikka, seabass and prawns, all served in rich sauces and gravies.
Of course, South India isn't South India without dosas. Often considered to be India's answer to the crepe, you'll find these crispy pancakes filled with masala, potatoes and onion. For those who can't decide, a thali offers variety and deliciousness without any tough decisions. Add on some momos, an Indian sandwich or wrap and you'll find that Indian dining in Bristol just stepped up a gear.
