Came here on a Sunday morning on a holiday weekend. I should have realized it was going to be a brunch menu, but I didn’t know what to expect from a American southern/Indian/gastropub. We ordered the naan pakoras as an appetizer which were ok but...More

As a very popular spot in Nashville, the restaurant lived up to its reviews. They are very accommodating to allergies and food restrictions. In addition, their food is true to indian yet with a spin. Their kebabs and Gol guppa shots are excellent. Definitely recommend...More

I go to Chauhan about once a year. It's pretty solid food, and I always enjoy myself when I'm there - now that I think about it, it's strange that I don't go more often! Chauhan is sort of Indian fusion. I'm not always a...More

We went there after seeing how crowded it was while walking by this place. This place is always crowded. Definitely make a reservation. They have fusion Indian food and traditional Indian food. Great taste and service. Totally worth it.

Really awesome food and ambiance. We had a little of "many" shared dishes, mussels in the coconut curry sauce was outstanding. Ask for naan bread to dip in the extra curry sauce...just an added delight...I just don't think you can go wrong with whatever dish...More
