great meal

this restaurant has a great buffet, and the menu choices are good. I generally eat here at least once a week if I possible.

The wife and I had the chicken misata and the grilled plate. I thought the misata was good, other than the chicken was a little tough. The grilled plate was pretty bland. The naan bread was really good. I liked the rice pudding. Discovered my wife is not much into Indian food. Waiter had a hard time understanding English, but... More

This restaurant used to be really good; however, last night it was not. While the entrees were OK, the Naan and the Poppadoms were really stale. The accompanying mint and tamarind chutneys were watery and lacking flavor. The service was so nonchalant that we didn't leave a tip and that is highly unusual for us. We don't know what has...

Cinnamon kitchen is located in a nondescript strip mall but the flavors of it's food are pure India! Spicy, sweet, taste bud tingling really good Indian food, none of the Americanized versions downplayed here. The palak paneer is rich and savory, the spicy lamb vindaloo begs for a sip of cold beer to wash it down, as you should blend... More

We ordered a dish that I can not remember the name of but can remember the dish.... fresh crisp veges (fresh), tandora chicken, grilled ck, lamb, shrimp. It tasted... More

Located in the strip mall of Gerber Village on Hendersonville Road, this restaurant is assumed to be fast food style. However, the entrees are generously portioned, authentically seasoned, and in a higher price range than you would expect. Full service restaurant. Delicious every time. The salmon tandoori is outstanding.

Tucked away in a strip-mall complex, this tiny restaurant might easily be dismissed or ignored, but to the diner's disadvantage. The food is sophisticated and subtle, the staff accommodating and professional and the overall experience well worth the trouble of finding.

had the Saffron Sea Bass today. The fish was cooked perfectly. The sauce was seasoned exactly as requested. Also had the lentil soup. It is one of my favorites. And the lamb peppercorn appetizer made hot. Glad they give the option of several versions of hotness. Everything was wonderful.

Unassuming location in a shopping center on Hendersonville road, but fantastic food. We usually order take-out as the service can be slow sometimes.
