You walk into this restaurant and your mouth just starts watering!! The AROMA was AMAZING and it did not disappoint! If I lived close I would visit this restaurant regularly!
Delicious food and great service… does not disappoint!!!
Normally this is a great place. Unfortunately, they were short-staffed and slow. Their menu is much more limited than it used to be. Also, it seems that the decor is suffering over the years.
Service and experience was very good as always. The food was not up to the level it has been in the past. I believe it was due to it being Mother's Day. Naan did have a charred/metallic taste to it. We will be back though. Always one of our favorite places to each.
The food was excellent. The service was outstanding. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
The food was excellent! The ambiance was overshadowed by the crowd and loudness level. Some of the decor is falling down. Time for a good cleanup and revitalization
They have way too many tables and not enough workers. Bar service was slow. Tables were left dirty with food on them for over 30 minutes after diners left. They should reduce the number of tables to match the capacity of staff, kitchen, and bar. Not a good experience,
Delicious food! Would recommend to any friend and would go all the time if we didn’t live very far away
The waiter/bartender Joe was great and made really amazing dinks. He is also a good waiter. We sat at by the window as the restaurant is a bit dark. I had tandoori ship with vindaloo sauce and loved it, but the shrimp were slightly overcooked and the tails should have been removed. My son had the lamp and really enjoyed it. The naan and chutney were good, though the chutney was a little pricey for what you get. We had a dish with round balls filled with bean paste and you fill it with a drink sauce. It was very fun and tasty. I wanted dessert but no room. I was told the owner is never there for dinner service and is always traveling so no chance to meet. Maybe that is what she prefers? I'd go again.
The host ignored us a few minutes as we walked in the door but the service was good and the food decent. It’s more of an Americanized cuisine and not 100% authentic. Overall good experience though.
Great food, great atmosphere! Nails it every time
Great meal, great atmosphere! Plenty of options, even for those concerned about spiciness or heat level. We all found something we felt comfortable with and enjoyed it!
Fantastic dinner and great friendly service
The food was amazing. You should make a reservation if possible. Our waiter was very nice and they’re cocktails were great!
Wonderful service (Thank you, Jamie!). The food was absolutely delicious.
Id visit here again. We loved our appetizers. My husbands steak was small and expensive.
I was disappointed in how long we waited to receive our meal. We were there well over 2 hours. Even with that the meal was outstanding and our waitress was amazing.
We wanted to come here while visiting Nashville due to Ms Chauhan’s notoriety. We were not disappointed. I had the tandoori chicken in a mild curry sauce n my husband had the lamb in a different curry. Both were very different from each other and excellent. We also tried the semolina puff appetizers with the cilantro water and they were delightful. We will be back next time in town
The vegetarian starters are really great. The main entrees are EXTREMELY disappointing!And then to pay the premium price is a real rip off :(
The short rib French onion naan is one of the most interesting things I have ever eaten!!! I have been talking about it for days...
Waiter really helped us with selections as we do not know very much about Indian cuisine. He nailed it all was very good and the curried mussels was amazing. Can’t believe how low the bill was for what we had.
Fabulous food and environment.
Valet parking would be nice, or more reasonable parking nearby.
Fantastic meal! Wonderful! Highly recommend!
Our experience was nothing less than perfect. The food perfect. The atmosphere perfect. The service, Brandon was our server tonight, PERFECT! Thank you so much. Will return next time we are in town!
The food quality was terrible. The menu on the website was NOT what was available at the restaurant.
The waitress was not knowledgeable and the nuances of the Indian cuisine. The cocktails we ordered were bad and did not have adequate alcohol content - wonder if this was some kind of cost control measure. We ordered the Poutine which tasted horrible, something a kid would put together in a hurry. It had no flavor - would NOT recommend this dish and the restaurant to anyone.
Read article about owner and decided to check it out, since we love Indian food. This was Indian with a twist - an excellent twist. Stated with fried artichoke and garlic Parmesan naan, along with a Sauvignon Blanc. Wine not great but food tremendous. Ordered lamb with saag - terrific and tandoori chicken with Tikka Masala - over the top especially with green Chili’s to give it some heat. Ordered side of Brussel sprouts but with the naan, a bit much.
Had a cab - Bonanza - and it went well with entrees. If we lived here, this would be a regular stop!! Server and Mgr couldn’t have been better. Parking an issue on a rainy night.
Great food. Easy to try lots of things. My chicken was so juicy and the tikka masala sauce was perfect. Fun cocktails too.
Wonderful, as always!
The food is unbelievable here. I mean chicken tandoori, French fries, and curry altogether? Best Tika Masala ever.
I had the Lamb Vindaloo and I must say it was one of the best things that I ate while in Nashville. The lamb was fork tender and the vindaloo was spiced perfectly. We eat here everytime we are in town.
I had high expectations going into this experience, and they were exceeded! Food, service, drinks, and vibe were phenomenal. Best Indian food I’ve ever had. Highly recommend for a casual/cool date night or with friends and family.
We have been looking forward to this since Covid hit last year...and it did not disappoint! We will support Maneet and many other locals. We were watching her before she ever called Nashville home and boy we are so glad she did!
Very bland Indian food, I expected more from the reviews. It tasted similar to frozen Indian food from Trader Joe’s. Not many spices in the food and very unauthentic. Didn’t expect much though for southern American Indian food. Don’t waste your time here and go try other places in Nashville. Very overpriced too!
Our first time eating Indian and it did not disappoint! Our waiter was wonderful and explained everything to us so we would know what exactly to get and enjoy! A bit pricey but expected when you're at a famous chefs restaurant!
Food was amazing!! Best Curry of my life!
Excellent food and service. Drinks were great. Silverware was dirty, issue was addressed. Other than that excellent. Vindaloo delicious!
We have not eaten in the restaurant, although we have ordered out many times. We had a fabulous time! The entire staff was super friendly and eating in was so much fun and delicious! We'll be back soon!
I have traveled all around the world. One of the best Indian restaurants that I have been to! Food was amazing!
In town for a birthday trip and this place was recommended by a friend. Everything was delicious!
