Chaatable is a journey to India…in the heart of Nashville. Chaatable has been long in the making and might be the most personal project for husband and wife duo, Morph Hospitality CEO Vivek Deora and celebrity chef Maneet Chauhan. The nostalgia of their childhood in India shine through in every aspect. When stepping through the doors, you feel like you’re experiencing an Indian bazaar at its finest. A complete sensory overload full of amazingly vibrant colors, flavors, aromas, and sounds. Chaat is the Hindi work for “lick” and the common term used for the flavorful, hand-held bites of Indian Street Food. Crunchy. Creamy. Salty. Tangy. Spicy. Savory. Sweet. Chaatable has it all…including the perfect private dining room for group events. Private dining space can be hard to find but we’ve got you covered for everything from business lunches to birthday gatherings. We’re open for lunch, dinner and brunch, so join us for one-of-a-kind adventure and Keep Chaatin’!

Third time in three weeks. Brunch and dinner twice. We’re working our way through the menu.
We usually sit at the bar and enjoy a conversation with Sully. He does a nice job explaining the dishes and cocktails.
With many restaurants to choose from in Nashville, this has become a favorite!

Waiter was very unhelpful and inattentive. With a restaurant like this, the servers need to be more helpful in suggesting items and be more knowledgeable on each dish.

First time eating Indian food and everything was insanely delicious! My friend and I shared several small plates and loved each dish. The noodles were exceptional, but so was the lamb sliders and chicken kebab! Cannot wait to visit again!

Chaatable is, hands down, the very best restaurant in Nashville, and it is my favorite of Maneet Chauhan's restaurants. It is beautiful to sit in, the food is excellent - imaginative and delicious (as are the cocktails) and the service is superb.

The food was great! The ambiance was beautiful. The server was not very personable. You could obviously tell it was our first time here and needed some guidance but nothing was explained and no assistance was given. We had no idea what anything was but the food we ordered was amazing.... spicy, but good! Will be back!

We love Chaatable! Highly recommend branching from the more common items like the biryani and exploring; we especially love the fish and the shortrib. All the smaller plates are awesome, too. A neighborhood favorite.

I've been here many times in the past and have always had a really great time. The food is always delicious and the service excellent. This time, tonight, was going the same way in the beginning. My family ordered samosas and I asked how many came in the order. The waiter said 2 but then he said, "But I can get them (the kitchen) to throw in an extra one to make 3." And I said, "Oh, that's awesome!" At the end of the dinner, we get our bill and see that the extra samosa cost $5. We weren't told by our waiter that there would be an additional cost. If we had known, we may or may not have decided on getting the extra one. So then I ask our waiter, "Hey, I saw that the extra samosa cost an extra $5. The way you told us, you made it seem like it was just going to be thrown in as a favor to us." The waiter got extremely offended and became rude and condescending and said, "Um it was extra food. Did you not think you would have to pay for more food?" And I said, "The way you said it, it seemed like it would just be thrown in." And the waiter said, "Um I didn't think I unclear." And I said, "We will pay for it, but the way you phrased it was unclear." It was the most bizarre interaction I've had at a restaurant, especially this one. I truly question whether or not I'll come back. There are ways to respond to someone being confused by something on their check that are more understanding and less rude than this interaction.

Our server was a bit reserved and not very informative. When asked about the bhel chaat, he pointed and laughed at the checklist on the far side of the table. Perhaps this should have been explained at the point of seating?! In addition, every dish was heavily oversalted- almost inedible, definitely not the flavors that a poori or a frankie
should have.

We have been to this restaurant 3 times now mostly out of novelty. I think we will not return.

A great place for our large group - we could all try different foods and share. The noise level was perfect as we could hear everyone with our big group of 8. It was cozy and the food and service were amazing. Thank you for a great time! We’ll definitely be back.

We had a great lunch (3 of us including my husband and teenage son). It was a little loud when we arrived, but the friendly and attentive server offered to turn the music volume down a bit. That set the tone for a great brunch. Our server provided several recommendations. We tried some and also tried a few other items. The food and drinks were all great. We all enjoyed the food and the time together. Hearty recommendation for this place. It is great for families, couples or groups.

Our server was amazing! She walked us through the menu. We ordered a few appetizers and they were all delicious. We also ordered entrees and some sides. Portions are large and can be easily shared. The way they offer trays on the table it is easy to taste all things on the table. Atmosphere was great and service was fantastic.

The food at Chaatable is amazing! Every bite is a burst of flavor. Spicy in a fabulous way with some heat that keeps you on your toes! We have been several times and the dishes are always delicious. The food is not the only thing to enjoy at Chaatable. The decor is a feast for the eyes with color and texture on every wall. Start your meal off with one of their specialty cocktails. My fav? Resting Beach Face. WOW!

We visited Chaatable on a Tuesday evening at 8:30. There were plenty of tables so reservations were not needed. Everyone was very helpful for our first time. We ordered from the small plates and were looking forward to them. Unfortunately, we were disappointed in some of the dishes. The "puff-puffs" were too sweet, not sure if it was the tamarind or something else. We love the golgappa at Chahaun's but found these just too sweet. That seemed to be the theme of the night - too sweet. Even the mirchi pakora was too sweet. We are used to much more spicy peppers used as the base, and again, too sweet. And finally, we were really looking forward to a taste of home with the maggi noodles, but again, way too sweet. The best things I had were the fried Okra - spicy and crispy - yummy! And the poori was one of the largest we had seen and it was fabulous. I dreamt about it for 2 days!

All that being said, we are looking forward to returning. The menu has so many choices and combinations that we are certain to find the dishes we will be crazy about! Also, loved the decor especially the wall of bangles.
