    A friend's birthday provided the perfect excuse to stop by our favorite Indian restaurant, and we were again pleased with the outcome. Their chicken dishes are especially enjoyable, because the bird is always moist and tender, and perfectly spiced. I can't say enough good things about Cross Culture.

    My wife and I had an excellent meal and experience here. My wife was new to Indian food, and our server did an excellent job helping her to decide on what to order. We chose some Naan and the mixed appetizer for two to start off with, and we enjoyed trying the different sauces. For entrees we went with the Chicken Tikka Masala and Lamb Karahi, which were both outstanding. Entrees are served family style, which was great for sharing. On Saturday nights, there is live music at the restaurant, and that provided a really enjoyable atmosphere. The staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating!

    I've stated this in the past, I cannot understand why CC is not busier, since the food is authentic, well prepared, and flavorful. IMO, CC is as good as any of the other Indian restaurants around, except the lack of business can be a little awkward.

    When asking my sister and I how spicy/hot we'd like our dishes to be prepared, the question was framed in a scale of 1-10." Generally this dish is a 4-5 level. Which would you prefer?" It was an immediately relatable why to chose our taste level with minimal error. It was, in fact, served at that level and delicious! I have loved everything eaten there over the past year.

    Cross Culture is our go to restaurant. We dine here at least once or twice a month. The food is excellent and the staff is great. Every time I try something new here, I wind up with a new favorite dish. It's BYOB which always helps keep the costs down. The have live music a couple of nights, I think Tuesdays and Saturdays.

    This is our second visit to Cross Culture. We were somewhat disappointed the first time but decided to give it another try. We were disappointed once again. The service is slow and the servers do not seem to be knowledgable about the menu or communicate with one another. We do enjoy the coziness of the booths, however, the lighting is very harsh sending the coziness right out the window.

    I travel to London for work so I expect excellent quality in Indian food. Cross Culture did not disappoint. To celebrate my birthday, my husband and I dined on a Saturday night. I was delighted to find a jazz duo performing. My husband likes spicy food and he ordered the salmon vindaloo, which was moist and flavorful without being overwhelming. I ordered the mixed grill and each item was deliciously prepared with distinct individual flavors. We order a starter salad, which was underwhelming - mostly iceberg lettuce - but the dressing was nice. The naan and parantha were fresh and warm. It's BYOB with no corking charge.Also, we didn't order dessert, but our waiter - the owner's son - served me ice cream with a candle as a surprise.

    We reserved for 2 on a holiday. We were then seated to a table near the front of the restaurant. We ordered our appetizer and entrees. Our Naan arrived quickly. 20 minutes later, a waiter takes the order of the party across from us that were seated before we arrived. It took an hour to get our food, which would have been okay if it wasn't for the restaurant being cold. My date wore their jacket during the whole experience. Then the food arrived, and it was great. The Chicken Makhani was good, rice, sauce was good, I enjoyed it. 30 minutes after eating we got our check and the party who ordered 20 minutes after us was asking for their order to go. On our way out they gave us a rose for Valentines day, but it felt like an apology rose.

    We decided on a whim to dine at Cross Culture this past Saturday evening. Have to say from the moment we entered with the aromatics in the air, (not overbearing at all) to the music playing, to our server, to the appetizers and entrees one would expect they were in an upscale five diamond restaurant. This one could be. Everything and I mean everything was perfect. The staff, the food, the service, the ambiance, everything was remarkable. This has become our go to place from now on. Would highly recommend Cross Culture to everyone.

    In Haddonfield and Collingswood, when all of the reataurants are already booked for new years, I knew we could count on Cross Culture, as Indian Food is not what the average person thinks of....but they should. We booked about 2 days before New Years with a table for 10, the food was excellent, service great and right in the middle of the action of First Night. It dosen't have to be spicy, but can be if you want, your choise.. the Tandori was excellent as it comes out still sizzeling, as an appitizer or main course. Everyone, expecially those not familiar with Indian food were impressed.

    Fabulous Indian food in a modern setting. I have been to this restaurant about 3 times. Always a great experience. Service was excellent. The wait person asks what spice level you would like your food so your meal is customized for you. BYOB Bonus last Saturday night was live jazz. The right volume, the right tunes, a compliment to the dining experience. Can't wait to go back.

    We have dined here many times. The food and service are consistently excellent. Particularly good and unusual is the fish tandoori, which we had as an appetizer. There are a good number of vegetarian dishes in addition to chicken, lamb and fish. They will make the "hotness" to your liking. At our table we had dishes ranging from 4 to 8 on the hotness scale of 10, and they did get it right. It is usually not a noisy restaurant, so conversation is easy.

    Our second visit to Cross Culture turned out to be just as good as the first, with the added bonus of a live jazz duet [guitar and upright bass] playing for everyone's entertainment. The food was terrific, the service was very good for a busy night, and the live musicians were a nice touch and quite skilled. The restaurant staff is one of the most consistently friendly and courteous we have encountered. We highly recommend Cross Culture to anyone who is looking for good Indian food in a good setting.

    My party of four made reservations for 6pm Saturday, which was good - the restaurant was empty at 6 and filled by 6:45. We were seated immediately. Waiter was pleasant and informative, explaining their spice heat scale and clearly answering all questions. Our appetizer sampler was tasty - I highly recommend it. The only real negative we encountered was what seemed like a long wait between the arrival of our appetizer and our entrees, but in the end was worth it as our entrees were fantastic. Everyone was very pleased with their meals, including spice levels. The restaurant was very busy, but once our entrees arrived the waiter was very attentive, and the bill was somewhat high but still very reasonable for 4 diners in Haddonfield.

    I believe this place is one of the best Indian restaurants in south Jersey. With each visit, quality food and service are provided. Be sure to make a reservation as this restaurant does fill up on the weekends. The ambience is very nice and comfortable. The lights are very bright, which would be a positive or a negative to some.

    It was our first time here & we really liked it. Our guest loves Indian food, but she arrived in town late. Thankfully, through Open Table we got a last minute reservation and were seated just before 9. Jane loved choosing spiciness of chicken cashmere on a heat scale of 1-10 (Jane is just a 4) Delicious with nicely layered spices. Bob liked the large portion of chicken biriyani (but prefers it in a small lidded-clay pot as at Corinander's.) Our guest loved her very spicy (8) dish. We had chips and dips before, bread with, & delicious, spicy tea after. Plenty of extra food to take home, just as tasty when it was reheated. Not just westerners - many Asians were eating at Cross Culture that night, TOO!

    We were out to celebrate a a dear friend's 50th birthday. We wanted a restaurant that was different but good. Cross Culture was suggested and we tought we'd give it a try. Prior to our outing I was not a huge fan of Indian food...however that's because I had never had really GREAT Indian cuisine! This restaurant was simply wonderful! The food was amazing...every bite better than the last...the service was great...our waiter was awesome...so patient...explained so much about the different dishes, flavors, cooking methods, etc. and really treated us very special. We had the Harabhara Kabab, Paneer Tikka, Garlic Naan, Chicken Tikka Masala, Malai Kofta, Chicken Korma and for dessert the amazing Kheer. WE LOVED EVERYTHING! A MUST DINE!!
