“Great food, helpful staff”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

If you know what Mughlai food is, you will have heard about biryanis and kormas.. Mughlai food was introduced to India and Pakistan by the Moghuls who invaded the countries (it was then undivided India) some 600 years ago. Today it is the hottest in most parts of the world.

Persis has crafted their biryanis that blend between the Lucknow and Hyderabad styles of preparation. Not the best I have eaten so far, but definitely the best I have tried in US. The entrees, which comprised of chicken tikka masala, methi chicken and a variety of other goat and chicken preparations. For starters, do try their goat pepper fry, garlic chicken and paneer 65.

The staff here are extremely helpful and courteous, so the entire eating experienced was enhanced. Possibly the only and major draw back, was the size of the dining area. It should ideally have been thrice their present size, given the waiting time and growing popularity.

“Nice Location, Cheerful waiter, but fizzed out food”
Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Tried this new place but was disappointed with the overall take. Initially it was good but the service started to go downhill after the orders were placed. No one cared to get us some papad, we had to ask for them. The food came in installments which was awful as you want to eat and share with everyone. Chettinad chicken was far from being Chettinad, it was some new twist. Biryani was ok but was served late that no one ate it. The raita which accompanied it was watery, it was in fact more liquid than a lassi. The waiter was good.
There are better Indian restaurants in Charlotte.
Unlikely to dine at this place again.
