    Amazing place. Cole took great care of us and made so many helpful suggestions. The ambiance is so charming and the aromas hit you the moment you walk in. You know what you are in store to be treated to for flavor. Friends from Franklin recommended it to us. We brought them left over Marsala as a thank you.

    I would eat here all the time! The mussel appetizer was delicious and plentiful. The TOC Steak entre came with several sides that represented all the curries. We sat at the bar and the bartender was very helpful in explaining all the dishes which made it easier for us to choose since we really haven't eaten much Inidan food.

    Unfortunately, the service was awful. Understaffed, stressed out sever - not happy, devoid of personality. Food was mediocre at best - such a shame because we are all fans of Manet!

    We went for the first time for my husband's birthday. Our server was able to make some amazing recommendations! We had the poutine and NHC cauliflower then each had vindaloo and korma. Everything was perfectly seasoned and came out perfect temperature. And, YES, we had to get doggie bags for everything! Thanks for a wonderful evening!

    Visited last year for dinner and had a great meal, was really looking to coming back. Unfortunately tiki masala poutine (signature) dish was cold and gol guppas were simply boring/no flavor at all. We decided not to have any more food and simply finished our cocktails. Sadly, we Probably won’t visit next time.

    Appetizers were very good. Main course was very average. The papadum were soggy, rotis were not warm or crisp and curries were average at best. You can get better Indian food at many Other places in Nashville. I would only go for appetizers.

    We only had appetizers. The first dish was different but in a good way but the rest were not served hot enough. The poutine was very cold as if it sat too long waiting to get to our table. The naan was also very burned and dry but the whipped paneer was yummy. The chicken pakora was dry and cold as well. Maybe just an off night? Also lots of construction around the place including sewer line installation so it was hard to find and a there was a bad smell outside the restaurant.

    The food was delicious, but every question we asked the waiter was met with an almost eye roll. He barely check on us even though my one friend was thirsting to death because of the spice and he was sitting there for 30 minutes without water. I finally had to get up and ask another waitress if she could bring us some water. There were a few other issues but I don’t feel like going into those. Either way the waiter kind of ruined the experience and seemed like he hated being there. Not sure if there was something going on and he may have just been having an off night, but regardless it was what we remembered most from the night. The food was great though.

    We picked this place because it was my wife's birthday. We knew it would be a bit pricey but because it was a special occasion, here we go. Upon arrival, the manager and host wished my wife a happy birthday. Wow. We ordered drinks and the meal, and afterwards, the waiter brought my wife a dish of homemade ice cream with a candle, and said happy 24th birthday. (Our adult children are older than that, if you get the picture). We just happened to meet on her 24th birthday, which occurred 46 years prior. I told the waiter that on he loved the story, and returned with 2 complementary glasses of champagne. How can you not love the place? The cuisine is amazing, the experience equally good.

    Decent food but not what majority of people would expect from her. The braised lamb half of it was hard as a rock and ridiculously overpriced Brussel sprouts I could’ve made them better in the microwave. Very nice restaurant with amazing staff but the food is insanely overpriced for the flavors and the variety that was offered.

    Amazing food! We took our picky teenagers, because we are on a travel bucket list tour to eat at at least one restaurant from of all of our favorite chefs. Maneet was #1 on our list. We ordered strait from the menu with no modifications. We absolutely LOVED everything we ordered! The kids did too, they ate without complaint!! It was a really awesome experience to share with the family.
