    So glad to experience Maneet Chauhan’s restaurant. We 💕 her and the food was delicious. Our server, the bar manager, was very helpful. We appreciated the gift of the delicious rum cake for Marla’s birthday! Thank you

    The food and service was fantastic! To be honest, I’ve never eaten a lot of Indian food but that’s about to change! No wonder Chef Chauhan won TOC, the food was outstanding!!

    I’m a huge fan of Maneet, so we had to have her Tournament of Champions Tiffin as our meal. Our waitress warned us that it’s made to be eaten by one person, & suggested that we add to it. We decided on the Saag Mac & Cheese. Perfect choices! EVERYTHING in the tiffin was excellent (& what a cute presentation!) and the saag m&c was the creamiest m&c I’ve ever had with perfect spices. I’ve never had a better dinner!

    My wife and I have had Maneet's restaurant on our bucket list for a long time. We are both huge fans of her. Since I had to pick her up from the Nashville airport decided to make reservations. The food was excellent and did not disappoint. I had the braised Pork shank with Korma and the wife had Chicken Tikka Masala - both came out hot and beautifully cooked. We are Food Network fans (I work for the parent company), that said next to eating at Morimotos in PA and here - 2 of our fave restaurants. Will go back at every opportunity.

    We were here totally because of Maneet’s presence on TOC, and it was worth the time and $$. Ordered the veg pakora, the TOC sloppy joes, and chicken tikka masala. All great, pakora was hot hot hot. Service excellent, and we got to see the 2021 and 2024 TOC belts on display. Total fan geeks, but we enjoyed it.

    This was our second visit to this restaurant, and we were not disappointed. The food is an interesting combination of classic and contemporary Indian fusion. We had the braised pork shank with korma, and the paneer Napoleon with tikka masala. For an appetizer we had the mixed Nashville hot vegetable pakora. And for dessert we had the rum cake. All of it was absolutely delicious. The specialty cocktails were also extremely good. We tried three total and all of them were spot on. The only miss, in our opinion, is the chairs at the tables. We are not large people, but the chairs have these uncomfortable metal brackets that wrap around on the side and dig into the sides of your hip bones. I would strongly recommend a booth if you have a choice. Service was fantastic. Absolutely no complaints. Next time we are in Nashville we will be back! Highly recommended!

    Admittedly, I was going because I was a fan, so I was prepared for either end of the spectrum - and it was fantastic. I am only half-joking when I say: "I see why she is the only TOC 2x winner!" The food was terrific and an experience and I am glad I opted to try something a bit high profile. Just because it isn't a "hidden" gem, doesn't mean it isn't a gem. Brava Maneet.

    Loved the food. Can’t recommend the poutine enough. Not what you would expect from an Indian restaurant but it was so good. Great drinks, excellent food and a good value.
