“This was my wedding party last year in August 2020 (pandemic). The restaurant was very accommodating even though we had no reservations. The service was phenomenal, they had patience with us because we were unfamiliar with Indian cuisine. Everyone enjoyed the different flavors and foods. To this day me and my husband order food from here, and it’s on point every single time. It’s the consistency for me. Our favorite food to order is the Mango Chicken and the Cashew Chicken. There’s much more to try.” – Tammera N.

The restaurant sends vibes of a modern twist of India, which is fascinating to evolve into a respectable culture, which is so different than Nashville is overall. Located in the Gulch, the area around has great potential for expansions along with up and coming businesses. The food was excellent and provided many flavors of traditional Indian food with a modern uplift to keep patrons focused on great food.
