About Haveli

The name we chose for our indian restaurant stems from our tradition. In India, at the beginning of anything, whether it is a human life or a business, it is customary to go to the Sikh temple, called Gurudwara, “the house of the Guru” in the Indian language, to ask the Bhaiji, the priest who acts as an intermediary, to pray for permission from the Guru himself to begin the activity.

At the Gurudwara in Rome, after opening the sacred book Guru Granth Sahib, the Bhaiji ruled that the name of our business should begin with the letter H.
So, during the return trip to Florence from Rome, we decided that our restaurant would be called Haveli: its translation? Prestigious abode.



Past and Present

The date of Haveli’s birth, April 13, 2000, is a special date because it is an important anniversary for the Sikh religion. On that very day in the year 1666, the first members of that religion were baptized.
Born under this lucky star, the restaurant business grew in fame and results, so much so that in 2007, Jyoti made a major investment in the renovation of its premises and at the same time developed an indian catering business.
Haveli is also the name of our Indian cuisine catering
Thanks to the experience acquired in the management of the restaurant and the collaboration with the most renowned Florentine entrepreneurial realities, the Indian cuisine catering business grew in reputation becoming the major point of reference in Italy for events and weddings, and for those who want to avail themselves of our delicious flavors and the mysterious and fascinating culture that goes with them.
