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.
We were first seated in the far back with no other patrons and the waiter must not have been told we were there due to the long wait to see anyone come with water or to take a drink order. We had to get up and go to the main dining area, ask to be seated there, then we were waited on. The waiter seemed overwhelmed.
However, the food was amazing and we enjoyed the meal and wine.
This was my first experience with Indian cuisine...the waiter was very patient in explaining the different dishes. I was amazed and delighted at the choices and how delicious everything was!
The food was authentic and fantastic. We will be back.
We were visiting Chapel Hill where Cholanad is located and found them on Open Table. And what a find it was! We scored an outdoor table (there are only a few) on an evening that was perfect for outdoor dining. The southern Indian fare was really good and there was plenty to share. My wife and daughter were especially fond of the Naan and I wiped out the Chettinad Chicken Curry, a spicy curry chicken dish. Easily a new favorite for me. We will be back on our next visit!
