Happened to find this gem, while I was in the Charlotte area. As I love good Indian food and it was between my meeting and my hotel. I checked it out.. WOW!! It was some of the best food I have had. I checked out...the mulligatawny soup and it was OUTSTANDING. Then I sampled the lamb rogan josh with garlic naan and it was outstanding. I did request this "mild" and it was, but still had some flavor. I was just unsure how spicy their medium is. I've been "burned" by some restaurants' "medium" spiciness. I loved this so much I came the next night and had the soup again, and the lamb korma with keema naan. Again all outstanding, this time I did request a medium spiciness and made me regret not getting medium the previous night as it was quite good. My least favorite of both meals was the keema naan (I had lamb). Just wasn't my thing, I also wish they had had some meat samosa's on the menu..More

Delicious Indian food. We had chicken Tikka Masala, lamb, naan and other breads. Everything was great and the service was friendly.

We had a wonderful experience! Our waiter was very helpful and attentive, and other staff members checked in on us during our meal as well. We ordered a bottle of wine, Garlic Naan, Scallop Masala, Seafood Vindaloo, Mango Kulfi, and Mango Kheer. Everything was absolutely...delicious. The flavor profiles were spot on. Sometimes the spicy dishes can get overwhelming. Everything was seasoned perfectly so that you could taste everything in the dish, and not just one overpowering ingredient. We loved it so much that we already plan to take friends back next weekend.More

Was looking for something a bit different and saw that Cornelius had an Indian restaurant. Decided to give them a try. I decided to do the combination meal, which included several different Indian dishes including Tandoori Chicken, a kebab, and several other dishes. Overall the...food was good and the price wasn't too bad.More

Long post....It took me a while to post this. But this needs to be reported. I am a prominent African-American physician in the community. My husband and I purchased an Attractions fund raising book from a friend at work. They provide restaurant coupons and other...discounts at local stores in the surrounding cities. We have used these in the past at several places without any issues until 10/3/19. At around 8pm, we decided to go to Sangam Indian Cuisine in Cornelius,NC. We presented the coupon to the waiter prior to ordering and proceeded order and ate our meals as usual. When it was time for the bill, we noticed an 18% gratuity was automatically added to our check. 🤔 We asked the waiter why this was done and he stated it was on the coupon....it was not. We asked to speak to the person who added this to the check. The waiter then left to speak to the owner who would not speak to us directly but instead deferred this issue to the kitchen manager (Makar ?). We were non confrontational regarding this and waited patiently for a response. When the kitchen manager return he said the owner had left for the night. (This was less than 5 minutes after the waiter told us he spoke to owner). We asked Makar why gratuity was automatically added and Makar stated it was because you have a coupon. Then things went from bad to worse....instead of saying this is what they do to ALL customers who present the coupon...he said,”Not to offend anyone...and not to be racist..but some people don’t understand the culture of tipping...” This was then followed by several other offensive examples of times when “certain people” didn’t tip. He then went on to say “we can’t just do it for a certain group of people because we may get sued...so we have to do it for everyone with a coupon.” We have never has this happen to us when using this coupon book and we have strong doubts that automatically adding 18% gratuity is a customary practice. We feel as though we were directly singled out and Makar’s explanation supported that. Sadly, this isn’t the first time we have been singled out for being us...More

This is our second visit and both times were excellent. Salmon Tika, Aloo Panak are highly recommended.

I am going back! Very good assortment of Indian dishes and also offers it’s slant on Asian dishes. The service was very attentive. I had a lamb dish with rice, a traditional potato filled pastry for appetizer and nan filled with chicken.

This is Indian food not to be missed. The buffet is delicious and an incredible bargain. My favorite dish is the chicken tikka masala. But the best thing about this restaurant is the family that runs it. Eat here and you will know the difference...between family run and corporate run restaurants. The owners and staff are charming. If you are in Charlotte, do not miss this restaurant!More

If you enjoy Indian food and appreciate friendly service this is a restaurant for you. I had lamb gosht, a spicy tomato and spice infused lamb choice, my wife ordered chicken tikka masala. Both dishes, accompanied by steamed rice and choices from the menu’s bread...corner were delicious. The restaurant is not big and can be crowded if the weather doesn’t permit use of the outdoor seating. I know the Sangam offers both take out and delivery and has a great lunch buffet.More

We were introduced to Sangam by friends and agree with them that every dish we tried on the buffet was delicious! We frequent the restaurant either Saturday or Sunday and find a consistent offering of delicious dishes!
