Very good food and great service. Next to a bar so late night is noisy. You could hear the music through the wall. Only drawback for me.
Food was great. Service was mediocre. The waitress didn't stop by often. We had to track her down a lot. She was very nice though, just inattentive.
Amazing atmosphere, incredible diverse food options! We come here on a Tuesday casual dinner or a Saturday night celebration dinner. Checks all the boxes.!
We are both big fans of Indian food and were interested in what kind of take an award winning chef would have on it. Fantastic. Clearly Indian but everything was like nothing we'd had before. Garland will definitely be one of our go-to restaurants for special occasions in future.
Awesome experience and we will definitely go back
The food was fine and the service was fine, but the restaurant was too loud. We could barely hear our server reciting the appetizer specials. We could not carry on a conversation, which was really a shame since we were celebrating our anniversary. I don't think we will be returning.
The food was super delicious. The staff was very friendly. The ambience was beautiful. Price was reasonable. Would highly recommend and will definitely be going back.
Always love my time at Garland. Cheetie is a flavor master. I love the use of textures allowing the food to appease every sense. Service is tight and staff is incredibly knowledgeable.
Good food however went on a Sat night and it was very loud. We had a hard time hearing each other talk,
One of our favorite restaurants to eat at downtown Raleigh. We usually go around 6 or 6:30, however, this time we went at 7:30pm and is was very loud. Hard to communicate and sometimes hard to hear the server. I understand why they do not try and quiet it down due to the venue next door is very loud with live music, etc. Overall, we love Garlands and their unique food choices. Love the lamb curry and my wife always gets the rice bowl. This is the only time we really experienced the noise level being that loud and we were ready to leave sooner than later. Will be back, maybe earlier reservations. It was a Saturday night.
Good food, drinks, and environment! Fun date night place.
It was a fantastic meal as usual. I hadn’t ever eaten lunch there previously -only dinner - and I was not disappointed. The special that day - a sloppy joe - was the best sandwich my husband remembers ever eating. That should be a menu staple!
Great fusion of flavors, love the shared plates and cocktails
Great time ! Food was top notch. I see why the chef is highly regarded. Her and her team are professionals and delivered a lovely experience from top to bottom - cheers
Garland has some of the best Indian (and Pan-Asian) food I've had in a long while. I had the corncakes and shrimp, which was outstanding. Other vegetarian and non-vegetarian small plates were delicious. The wait staff couldn't be more attentive. Interesting and tasty cocktails too! We will definitely be heading back.
Another great meal at Garland! This was our friends' first visit, but it won't be their last. Thank you Cheetie, Paul and our favorite bartender Nick!
Loved trying all of the small plates. Waiter did an excellent job ordering for us!!
Amazing food and great service!
fantatic food , always great service and fabulous ambiance
There was too much noise, could not hear person on the opposite table,
Also, food was slow to come
Another divine adventure at Chef Cheetie’s! Each dish a delightful surprise, with new twists on old favorites and mouthwatering specials. Was so thrilled to introduce my Jackson Heights Dwelling daughter and her partner to our favorite multi-ethnic restaurant, where they were duly blown away. Thanks to all for another uniquely wonderful evening !
We've made the 30 mile drive to Raleigh to eat at Garland perhaps a half dozen times, every six months or so, and each time we leave wondering why we don't do it more often. Chef Cheeti Kumar's food is creative and surprising, if you are looking for that. If that's not important to you, the food is still approachable and delicious. She is getting some well-deserved national recognition.
On our latest visit, we arrived late and disheveled, and the door was graciously opened for us by someone who had stepped out for some air. Our doorman, we learned later, turned out to be Paul Siler, Chef Kumar's husband and business partner. He, among others, visited our table to ask about our experience, and enhance it. We enjoyed a level of personal engagement from many of the front staff (our waiter, the hostesses, the bartenders, as well as Paul) that made our experience truly memorable and worthwhile. I think they figured out what we were looking for and delivered. Certainly we would be back to Garland for the food alone, but we have to say that the level of service is really outstanding as well.
The food was great. The noise level was very high. Sitting across the table, you had to yell to be heard. People all around were having lots of fun.
World Class. If Garland was in LA or NYC, you’d wait months for a reservation!
Excellent food and service, menu choices change regularly, which makes every visit a new experience
I live in NYC but I have family in Raleigh. Every time I visit I have to go to Garland! The food and the cocktails are so creative and reliably delicious.
Garland always exceeds expectations. Great cocktails, thoughtful wine list and wonderful Indian/Asian inspired food.
Food has been great every time we have gone.
Our waitress was informative and at the ready without being pushy. We are slow so it’s always nice to have staff that lets you take your time. Also made suggestions. See you again in a month!
I took friends visiting from LA, Minneapolis, Chicago and NYC to Garland. They loved It. We must have shared 15 dishes and each one was fantastic!
Garland is a wonderful restaurant. The service is great and the food is outstanding!
Looking forward to the next time...
Raleigh is so lucky to have such a place. Food has always been phenomenal. The Bossam gives me all the feels. <3
Delicious as always! Wonderful new drink list and specials.
Amazing as always, never disappoints!
Fantastic restaurant with amazing food. Wish it was a little quieter so that I could enjoy my table conversation, but they said they are working on some solutions.
As always, the food was fabulous and the noise level almost reaches the point of no return.
We had been to the restaurant once before with friends, and had enjoyed it. This time, however, the food was a disappointment. My wife had lamb curry: it had four small pieces of lamb that were grainy and flavorless, with undercooked vegetables. I had chicken tandori - it came as a kebob (I have never seen tandori on a kebob before) and the meat was chewy and dry - not succulent as tandori should be. We have eaten a lot of Indian food, including in India, and this Indian food did not come up to average. Perhaps we hit a bad night (it was Friday the 13th!)
Garland is fantastic. The menu changes frequently and offers creative takes on food with Indian, Middle Eastern, and American influences, including Southern, to name a few. I've eaten here several times, and each time I am struck by how personable the staff are. This is easily one of the top Raleigh restaurants for me.
Amazing food, exceptional service! Couldn’t be any better. I will be back!
Hipster joint. Food was unremarkable. Waitress not very attentive. We were seated in the room with the bar and other patrons got drunk and LOUD. Seems like more hype than actual quality.
