We had a lovely meal before a concert. We selected this restaurant from the website and from on-line reviews. And we enjoy Indian cuisine. The service was calm, not rushed. The food was fresh, tasty and lovely. The Masala Navratan Tartlets were outstanding - so flavorful! I would highly recommend Cholanad to family and friends.
Wish there was a Winston-Salem location.
I've eaten here a few times. Service has been consistently excellent. Almost every food item has been wonderful as well and would justify 5 stars. Every entree has been awesome, the crepe like wraps, the chili chicken, and curry pots are a highlight.
Some of the appetizers we ordered at our last visit were on the bland side, even the accompanying sauces were rather mild.
Good food, but tables are too close together for private conversation.
The food was delicious and the service was great!
It was the night of the Super Bowl, and therefore not many diners. Our server, Jarrett, was excellent. He was the highlight of the meal. One diner thought a "mild" entree was a bit too spicy, but everyone else was very pleased.
Wonderful Southern Indian dining experience, lots of interesting dishes, knowledgeable server, the Manager stoped at our our table twice. Highly recommend this wonderful restaurant!
Excellent wine & drink list.
Good Indian food and it’s nice to have access to a full menu at lunch rather than a buffet.
Food was very good, portions large. But the service was abysmal. Waiters need lengthy training in all aspects of serving.
My husband and I had been to Cholanad once in the past and were impressed by the authentic menu items and great flavors we got to experience -- as such, we were excited to return. Unfortunately, our repeat was a bit disappointing. The food was definitely still on point, but the service was far from ideal. We sat for 25 minutes before having to tell the hostess that nobody had waited on us.
From there on, I'm pretty sure the hostess just decided to go ahead and wait on our table herself (which was appreciated). But there was no apology for the wait, and she clearly was not used to waiting tables -- our bottle of wine was just sat on our table (we opened and poured ourselves).
Not her fault but perhaps maybe an understaffing issue? Great food, just unfortunate service experience.
Food and service were great. I recommend using the valet parking located in front of Elaine's during peak hours. There is no charge if you are eating at one of the restaurants.
Great food as always. Friendly helpful wait staff - very knowledgeable about the menu.
Cholanad is the best Indian in NC! The big bad tiger was incredible !
Always excellent Indian food and choices at Cholanad. Excellent value.
I would definitely go back. The food was good and the price was reasonable. The menu is extensive. I had shrimp tikka Marsala and wish there were more shrimp but the flavor was great. Went for my birthday and they gave me a complimentary glass of champagne!!
Not the best Indian food in the area. Basmati was not particularly aromatic. Lamb saag lacked depth of flavor.
