Had dinner with hubby here one night. Nice place in the Gulch section of Nashville. Good service, good drinks. I ordered the tandoori chicken which was good but loaded with French fries on top which I thought was odd. Yummy garlic naan.

Excellent choice near the Gulch, free valet service. The decor was great with Indian films projected on the walls. Service was excellent. The dishes were tasty, traditional Indian with modern twists. We especially enjoyed the spicy calamari.

The dry rub on the ribs was good, nice size portions and the restaurant seats plenty of people inside and out.

We enjoyed brunch before a Preds game. Great fusion menu inspired by Indian traditions, but certainly updated into modern cuisine. Highly recommend this for the cool vibe and adventurous dining experience.
