    What a great place. I didn't know that Indian fusion was a thing but I am glad it is. Food was awesome and the staff was friendly and attentive. A new favorite and we will be back soon.

    I love the variety of food, even for non-Indian food eating people. The service was a little slow, but they were also pretty busy at times. The inside was sleek and modern; however, this also made the place to be very loud when the restaurant is full of people. I would come back here again, but maybe not during weekend.

    The service was excellent - efficient and just the right amount of attention. The food was perfect as always. The noise level was a little loud but there was a very positive energy and vibe. It was all in all a great dinner. I highly recommend the Bollywood fries, Chat samosa naan pizza, tofu masala, cold coffee smoothie, and clove apple cake. All were perfectly delicious and satisfying.

    The food was just good, nothing exceptional. We ordered the samosas, chicken tikka pizza, and lamb tacos. The samosas were pretty standard, but the dark red/brown sauce just tasted like Kraft BBQ sauce. The pizza crust was very soggy and underdone in the middle and there was too much cheese, which overpowered the chicken. The tacos were fine, but the flavor was much more subdued than what I'm used to in Indian food. We tried four of the Indian beers, but were disappointed that the waiter was unable to tell us anything about them. I had to google them. This dinner was before a concert at Merriweather, which we traveled from out of state to attend. The next time we go to Merriweather, I would rather choose another area restaurant than return to C&C.

    Went here before a show at Merriweather, which I would assume the restaurants in the area would be aware of. It was understandably busy, but the night we went they seemed completely caught off guard. Seated 20 minutes after the reservation time, another 20 minutes before a waiter came over, and never even got water. I will say once the food came it was outstanding, and I would consider coming back on a less busy night.

    I am not crazy about spicey hot food. My salmon taco was dry. The chicken wing appetizer was good. Smoothies were also good and my friend enjoyed the butter chicken. If you like Indian food then it will be enjoyed.

    The Sizzling Paneer appetizer was very good. The lamb saag and the Harissa spiced Lamb Chops were very good and plenty of food. The Chicken Tikka Masala sauce was too sweet. Shouldn’t be sweet at all.

    My wife and I dined at this Columbia eatery for the first time Saturday night. I had one of their street tacos dishes (Mediterranean) and my wife had paneer with a curry sauce. Both dishes were very favorable. The Tacos had a little heat. My wife had a rye cocktail and I had craft beer. The menu is interesting with a mix of dishes featuring different cuisines. We will definitely go back to try some of their other offerings.

    We went on a very busy night due to Merriweather pre-concert business so it was a bit noisy, but the staff were all friendly and hustling with smiles on their faces. Once seated our food came out quickly and was delicious! We had such a great time we returned the next night for a late date night night. It was much quieter and the service was impeccable. Our server, Sam, loved hearing our feedback and went out of his way to make sure everything was too our liking! We will be back many times!

    I rarely review restaurants but this is one experience that was necessary to post about. The restaurant is very warm, welcoming, and beautifully set / maintained. Unfortunately, I wish I could say the same for the staff. They unfortunately, in my opinion, lacked the human element of friendliness / welcoming hospitality. Given this being an Indian restaurant, there is a type of hospitality that is present. Typically warm, gentle, and most of all friendly. Food concept was unique, but highly inedible. My spice tolerance is quite high compared to the typical spice level offered, however we ordered a mild spice level due to the sole dietary request that was asked about. Overall, we felt rushed, unwelcome, and an utter inconvenience for the staff. Most likely not going to go back again.

    Amazing food and great service from our server GV. We came for Mother’s Day and were seated in a booth. Intimate restaurant with great ambiance and small bar area. We had the samosas, eggplant & potato chaat, lamb saag, masala pasta, tandoori branzino, and all were very impressive. For dessert, the pistachio cake and lemon coconut cheesecake, delicious!!! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. We have plenty of amazing indian style restaurants in montgomery county, but we still drove 40 min to eat here and it was well we’ll worth it!

    Went to this restaurant specifically for the gluten free and vegan menu selections, but I was suspicious that many of these meals still contained dairy. Overall, would much rather eat at a more traditional restaurant: prices were very high, but quality of food did not reflect the price.
