  • "I have been to Copper before, but perhaps I had placed it in a category of speciality restaurants, but on this Charlotte Restaurant Week visit I realized this needs to be in our regular rotation. Everything was delicious, portions well sized, service friendly and unobtrusive. The location is excellent for those in the southern part of the area. I left thinking what a nice meal we had, and sure we would be back."

  • "The cuisine was very good. I found the combination of seasonings and flavors of the entrees was very enjoyable and added to the making of an excellent dining experience. I look forward to returning, just so that I can try another dish."

  • "This is the second time I have brought visitors from India to this restaurant. Both times my guests were satisfied. That being said there is not a lot of food for people from the state of Goa, however its hard to have specific items from every state in India. You're best bet for Charlotte Indian Food!"

  • "The first thing that greets you are beautifully painted house pillars, then you realize they are peeling!! The ambiance is fine with some interesting artwork. The menu is good, but honestly the servings are just tiny. This is the first time I have made a comment like this as normally my appetite is not that high so a small portion is not much of an issue, but this is taken to a whole new level. The rice was exquisite but just a few teaspoons of it!! My daughter ate everything and needed to go to Arby's on the way home, and she has a bird like appetite. The quality of the food was high, but they have removed themselves too far from what a good Indian meal delivers. Disappointing, I will not go back."

  • "1st time at this restaurant. Always have loved Indian food. Creative specials this week with appropriate sized portions. Great place to share and try multiple things. Kind and well trained wait staff."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "During restaurant week this place is busy! The flavors were great and the plating was immaculate. I prefer this place when our waiter has time to explain the dishes. The cocktails are fun, the décor smart, and it's lively yet also good for a date."

  • "Indian cuisine with dishes that surpass the typical for most Indian restaurants. The spin on the duck dish with the almonds was fantastic. I would definitely bring my kids and love hole they refitted a house which makes it a quaint neighborhood gem."

  • "We visited for restaurant week and were a bit disappointed. Very glad we didn't pay full price as portions were small, naan wasn't included and menu lacked familiar Indian favorites like vindaloo chicken."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Copper is truly unique. The menu is Indian but with a flare for modern. Food is spicy and tasty, and reasonably priced. The environment is also excellent as it is in an old house in the Dilworth area, so very nice and comfortable. Highly recommend this for a unique Indian dining experience."

  • "We were seated in the room in the back where there was only light from a small window. There was no good lighting. The food was ok but they were not great to match with the prices. We used a groupon which helped with the bill but I am not sure I would go again without a groupon. Overall, it was just ok."

  • "The food can be traditional or a fusion with a variety of styles. And you can adjust the spiciness in your order"

  • "My wife and I went to this for date night and had a great time. We stuck with their traditional menu which has super creamy sauces. They have modern dishes as well but they were lacking the sauce that is so common to Indian food. The atmosphere was nice too."

  • "Copper never disappointed me. Once you go past the ugly green carpet at the entrance, you are in for a treat. Very pleasant and friendly staff and excellent Indian food. Take your special person here.."

  • "For what was supposed to be an upscale Indian Restaurant, this was distinctly blah in terms of food. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good. The lamb I ordered was tough and dry and the gravy it was in had only one taste: chili. I expected some chili to it, but Indian food is supposed to be about more than just hot, it should be a mix of different tastes. This only had one. My wife's fish, also, was lacking in taste as were the dishes of my two other companions. The service was also mediocre. Not bad, but not good. I've had tastier Indian food from several of the uptown lunch buffet choices at 1/4 of the price with friendlier service. My verdict: if there is another Indian restaurant near you, try it. This is nothing special."

  • "Had lunch on a Friday. The lunch menu contained 5 traditonal and 5 modern Indian dish's. Your choice of 7 sauces. I had the lamb vindalu a nicely spicy/hot sauce served in a white raised oval bowl for a nice presentation. The meal included a free salad, rice and nam bread. The food was very tasty, the service excellent and atmosphere on glassed in porch with it scenic view of Easy Blvd enjoyable. Appreciate how the staff will describe any meal for you or recommend one after asking about your tastes. Try to sop here whenever in Charlotte from the Lake."

  • "My husband and I went to Copper for my birthday and we had a fantastic meal. We shared the samosa appetizer, naan, chicken tikka masala and a lamb curry, unfortunately I can't remember which one it was. Everything was very flavorful, and I liked how they serve you rice and the dishes with serving spoons and empty plates so you can easily share everything. The brought out a lava cake with cardamom ice cream for dessert and the ice cream was incredible, I've never had anything like it before. The only down side was that one of their air conditioning units was broken so the temperature inside the restaurant was extremely warm but our waiter was fantastic and brought out a fan for us. I would definitely go again."

  • "Went to Copper for a first date and it was wonderful. The menu was divided into traditional and contemporary. We order the modern and were both astounded at how intricate and balanced the flavors were. I will eat at Copper many more times in the future!"

  • "I wanted to take a girl to a simple but classy restaurant for dinner. Copper was just the place. Our waiter was attentive, our food was brought to us quickly, and it was very good. The atmosphere and music were relaxing and condoned a perfect feeling of romance. I couldn't be happier. "

  • "Excellent experience, highly recommend it to anyone who wants a great Indian dining experience with great food, well trained staff, and a very pleasant atmosphere. Very easily the best Indian restaurant in the Charlotte area, if not all of the Carolinas. We mentioned our reservation was for my parents 40th anniversary and they made special accommodations for it which we did not expect. Looking forward to going back again already."

  • "I have never been disappointed in a meal that I have had at Copper. The scallop dish I had from the modern menu was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. We always order the bread--the pea and mushroom kulcha has been my favorite. "

  • "This was our second time dining at Copper. My husband is allergic to fennel and our waiter went out of his was to talk to the chefs so that he could recommend an entree that was safe for him to eat. Our meals were delicious!"

  • "What a great Indian Restaurant in Charlotte! I was visiting Charlotte from Miami and took my family from Chicago to Copper for dinner, next to London this is the best Indian restaurant I've ever visited. Simply great imaginative food and impeccable service! Will definitely go back soon."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "The food was wonderful! The service was fast, and the waiters were courteous and knowledgeable about the menu. We were there for an anniversary, and it was not quite as romantic a setting as we would have liked--we were in fairly close quarters to a larger group that was a little loud; not bad just not as private as would be ideal. Still, overall a great dining experience."

  • "Our party of my husband, myself, my mom and my two daughters (11 & 13) truly enjoyed a wonderful assortment from Copper's menu. Vegetables in a goat cheese sauce, lamb in a "bottle" sauce and aloo gobi were so tasty. The service was great. I had a "coppertini" and it was quite unique. We enjoyed our evening at Copper and would highly recommend this restaurant especially for a special dinner."

  • "I love Indian food. This place wasn't good. Nothing was fresh, and the food just wasn't good. We went to dinner with six people, no one enjoyed it. To top things off the service was VERY slow, it took 2.5 hours to get out of there. We waited 45 min after our salad for food."
