I would have given Cholanad 5 stars for their food. It was very tasty! I’m a vegetarian so I had plant -based selections. My husband had lamb, which he enjoyed, but had an upset stomach later so gave the food 4 stars. . Can’t say for sure that this was the food, though. The service was spot on. We were there late on Saturday night so the restaurant was pretty quiet and but kind of plain atmosphere.

We made a last minute decision to go out to eat rather than cook dinner at home. Too hot, too tired. We also decided we wanted something different other than the usual places we go for dinner on a weeknight. So Nomad it was. And that was a great series of decisions because we really enjoyed our dinner. It was an eclectic mix of Indian and Thai cuisines and it was all delicious! Thai red cauliflower, butter chicken, lamb massaman curry, and naan. The warm fragrant spices of these two cuisines were perfectly balanced. Not too spicy and certainly not ordinary. Just delicious. The white wine selections complemented the spices and cut the richness of the butter chicken and the lamb stew, but let the flavors shine through. Perfect dinner.

I LOVE Indian food… my husband does not. He agreed to go out with me last night to Lime & Lemon because he is amazing. For the FIRST TIME EVER… he fell in love with Indian Food. He loved the appetizers. He LOVED his entree. He LOVED the cocktails! AND… he said that he hasn’t experienced that level of great service in a long time! To be fair… our server, Edwin T. was AWESOME. He guided my hubs to the right dishes, cocktails, and made his evening better than he could’ve hoped for! We cannot wait to go back!

No issues - everything was good but not great. Portions seemed to have gotten smaller and more expensive. Pad thai was bland.

The food was excellent, tasty and authentic. I went on Friday during a rain storm so the restaurant was practically empty. The service was prompt and accommodating. When the appetizer only contained 2 dumplings, the server added a 3rd so we could split the dish and taste several things.
