My wife and I used to live near Cary but now live out in the sticks. I was coming back from a conference in Charlotte and planned to go twenty minutes out of my way to Sangam to pick-up two nights' worth of meals/takeout. GLAD I DID. Sangam "fires on all cylinders," so to speak. I waited 15 minutes to receive my order, enjoying a glass of South African Merlot in the interim, and then drove an hour+ home. The owner and the waitstaff could not have been more hospital, friendly, and professional.
THE FOOD! I highly recommend the kashmiri chicken (!), chicken korma, lamb saag, and lamb tikka masala; BREADS: we had the kashmiri naan (wonderful!!!--sweet & unique), garlic naan (real garlic, not powdered-yay!), and paneer & onion-stuffed kulcha (wonderful), alongside raita and onion chutney. My wife and I regularly travel to Asheville to eat at Mela's and Chapel Hill to eat at Talullas. The homemade sauces/curries and breads at Sangam were of that caliber. Very *artisan*, high-end ingredients (you could taste & tell), and rich, fragrant, and oh so pleasing to those taste buds (I ordered everything "medium" spice-heat). From what I could tell, they'd put some research into their wines as well. Decor is casual-upscale, quiet cozy-romantic.
To those in Statesville, Charlotte and the Lake Norman area: Shame on you if you keep going back to those same-old-same-olds (yep, I know those places--soupy bland sauces and thawed 'package-wholesale' breads/naan) and don't give this place a shot. Sangam had two tables of diners and was doing great takeout (on a Thursday evening @5pm) while I sat there. Wife and I plan to drive back an hour for a date night soon. The reviews are spot-on. Highly recommended.
