    Food and server were awesome! We were able to order a flight of the curry sauces with naan to try before selecting our entrees - that was amazing! Only downside was noise level but we had a large party near by that were extremely loud. Looking forward to returning again soon!

    We went for brunch. The gol gappa shots won't disappoint you. I liked the addition of curry leaves in the puris. Was expecting a different version of chana chaur salad, but I may not have ordered that if I knew there was more salad & very less chana. Vendaloo chicken, shrimp saag & naan won't disappoint you. The drinks were very well made.

    Every dish was fantastic!! We ordered the curry flight to taste all of the curries prior to ordering! Much recommended!! The whipped paneer was an excellent appetizer. Everything tasted so fresh and came out very hot! Our waitress was just lovely. Very knowledgeable about the food, super attitude and just the right amount of attentiveness.

    My valentines dinner was superb. I started with the oysters! They were so delicious and spicy! the Indian spices were an excellent pairing with the flavor of the oysters. Next I had the stuffed lobster and it was perfectly prepared with this exotic sauce that I made sure every bite was slathered in. All in a all lovely Valentine’s Day’s feast.

    Have intended to dine here for quite some time. Warm, cozy, friendly atmosphere. Food was delicious and plentiful - so flavorful. Everyone was leaving with a to-go box - you don't want to leave anything behind. Our selections were heavy on "frites" - that was on us. Probably would've selected something other than the tandoori chicken poutine (delicious) considering our entree choices (mussels & frites - spicy and flavorful and Chuahan Burger - spectacular taste combination). Service was kind and solicitous. Prices are very reasonable. Parking can be tricky but we lucked up and found a "free" space steps away. Paid parking is available close by. This is a must-try for locals and a great place to bring OOT guests.

    Always an outstanding experience at this restaurant. I always make a note in OpenTable about being a gluten-free vegan so the server will be prepared to offer options. This time the server did not ask; I’ve learned the menu well enough to know what I can, and cannot order but have those been the needs of my client, it would’ve been important for them to know that I recognize their needs and pass that information along to the restaurant.. It’s just super helpful when the server is on board with any dietary needs at the table. so the server will be prepared to offer

    We have wanted to go here for a while and finally had the chance as an early Valentine’s Day date. We really enjoyed the whole experience. From the food to the people, the whole experience was really good. We ended the meal thinking of who we could bring back to eat there honestly. Parking is a bit of a hassle since it is downtown Nashville, so be prepared to add on an additional 15 dollars to the meal, but that isn’t exclusive to this restaurant.

    Our meal at the restaurant was an absolute delight. The food was not only delicious, but also extremely generous in portion size – my partner, who has a large appetite, was fully satisfied without the need to order seconds. The curry dish was the highlight of the meal, with its rich and complex flavors, and the ambience of the restaurant created the perfect setting for our dining experience. Additionally, my beverage was expertly crafted and complementing to the food. Overall, it was a wonderful dining experience that I would highly recommend.

    Paneer and naan app at bar delicious. Sat down for dinner and ordered a ribeye Med rare and it came well done. I have never sent a meal back but it was not inexpensive and it was really dry and tough. The waitress saw it and apologies however waited another 20 min while my husband finished his meal so I cancelled mine. We had been at the table for a total of 40 min and i had no meal. They offer a slice of cake as an apology. Bill comes and the one meal was $35 all in and they had it set up with a $38 tip so $73 was showing. It was confusing because the top was bigger than the bill and even w the steak added back that tip did not make sense. The waitress offered no explanation other than that she removed the steak. The whole experience was very disappointing. I was looking forward to going all week and left hungry.

    Always an incredible experience. I recently lost my wife to cancer. She always loved this restaurant and Maneet, so it is special to me. I brought my sister here for the first time and she absolutely loved it. Service is always good and the food is next level. I already have another res for a party of 9 on 3/23. Bringing some more first timers.
