Chauhan Ale & Masala House
I was impressed by the food. I am not a fan of brussel sprouts, but theirs are simply delicious! Our server was attentive and friendly. His suggestions were excellent.
For the positive. They have a really good happy hour. The food and drinks were extremely good. The bartender was good at his job and he kept me entertained. The Indian food was the best that I have had in a very long time. The restaurant is really cute and has a great vibe to it. Now for the negative, the host was extremely rude. He saw that I had walked in right after another customer. Instead of telling me that he would be with me shortly, he walked the customer to his table and then kept on going to the back of the restaurant leaving me standing at the host/hostess stand until someone else came from the back to help me. He should have said something instead of ignoring that I was waiting to be seated. I instead sat at the bar where I received excellent customer service.
Chauhan’s has been a quintessential part of our Nashville visit over the past few years. Went for lunch this time and were surprised by the poor service, Long wait to take the order despite few patrons. The blonde waitress would rather be on her phone than help the waiter In the back. We ordered Tandoori Masala chicken curry and Bhunna Paneer Curry. Food was cold, basmati rice was cold and sticky. Not a typical Chauhan’s experience.
I got food poisening
Loved it! Second time trying Indian food and it was awesome .
Food was amazing
First time to a true Indian restaurant. Waiter was extremely helpful. The food was fantastic. They let you gauge the heat level by bringing the Indian peppers to the table. Receive a small congratulations dessert. We will be back
The food was delicious! The staff had difficulty with our party of 9. We had a great time because our company was wonderful, but they thoroughly confused themselves when bringing our (quite simple) orders. Then proceeded to blame each other for mistakes made. Overall, the server seemed stressed and not happy to be there. Then a 20% gratuity was added to our (separate) bills. Honestly, we all agreed that we would have left bigger tips had she not done this. We'll more than likely go back again since this was probably just an "off" night for the staff. Again, the food was fantastic.
The food and drinks at Chauhan was delicious! My friend and I enjoyed our meal, but felt rushed by the server. Otherwise, we enjoyed the food and drink.
The Skirt Steak was amazing. Exceeded my expectations. Starter of Calamari is different, a Great different.
Always an excellent meal at Chauhan’s! Traditional Indian fare with a few fusion twists. Loved, loved LOVED the gulab jamun Cheesecake with strawberry sauce!
Great food, great drinks, great service! Our waiter was very nice and offered suggestions from the menu. We were happy with our selections.
This was our first time eating there. I wanted to take my wife to one of her favorite chefs. There was old Bollywood tv shows and movies with 5 projectors shown on the brick wall. The ambiance was amazing. The food was out of this world. I want to try her other restaurants now.
A surprising find. Excellent food and service tucked in to BBQ town!
We went here for brunch, and all four of us ordered chicken and waffles. This is the best dish. We love it and will be back. We also ordered the masala dabba and bread...the powdered mango spice mix is absolutely wonderful!
I was fascinated with my very first experience back in 2017. But it’s a same menu and okay in taste. Rajma was too blend and naan was little cold. We tried Paneer Tandoori Poutine it was good. Paneer tikka Masala was below average . I would not go second time.
This was a perfect way to celebrate my 25th birthday with friends! The service was prompt, relatable, professional and fun. The food was incredible, flavorful and exciting!! Everyone was so happy with the apps, drinks and their meal. I also was gifted a lovely dessert with a candle! Couldn’t recommend this place more highly. Even my vegan friend was blown away by her meal! It was all delicious.
Food and service was excellent. Great wine pairings.
My guest and I ordered appetizers and an entree each. My entree was delivered warmish and my guest's was delivered at an appropriate temperature. Mine was not good cold, however it tasted great the next day when I heated it in the microwave. Our server was lovely and delightful.
Salamat Maneet Chauhan, Vivek Deora and Team Chauhan for the wonderful service and food on Christmas Eve 2019 for dinner.
Everything was awesome
Fantastic experience that will bring us back again!
It was an Indian dining EXPERIENCE which made for a unique Xmas dinner night.
Food was excellent, with so many items and tastes I couldn’t name them all.
Waiter was very courteous and timely, though on two occasions he forgot to bring us plates for our various servings. Food was very timely until dessert, where we sat with nothing for some time before the cake showed up.
Overall, I’d write off the negatives to a busy Saturday night. We will be back again.
Dinner is always amazing! It’s one of our favorite places in Nashville! The chicken saag is my absolute favorite! My husband always loves the unique beer selection. But please get more high chairs. The first one that was brought for us was broken! Then we were told there might not be another. Luckily they found a not broken one we could use. Not having a safe high chair would have prevented us from having dinner there, because it’s quite difficult to eat with a baby on your lap! Thank you!
Great date spot. Solid Indian flavors. Some cool fusion offerings. Can’t go wrong here.
Accommodating and outstanding place!
Good food overall. Main issue was the noise. Very loud room. Great service.
I have been many times even entertaining clients. I am an executive at an Indian IT company in town and regularly recommend both your restaurants. Food and experience was overall good as usual but the hostess greeting me where I was hosting my local Nashville based team and I had a reservation of 5 greeted me with “what’s up”. I don’t expect that kind of greeting when I am about to spend &150 for lunch. Please educate your host staff that no one wants to be greeted with what’s up. How about. Welcome to Chauhan can I be of service. Or even happy holidays do you have a reservation with us. I will be glad to host an education session if needed. Otherwise excellent food and service.
We specifically noted an Inability to tolerate milk products. We order our meal, ate it and afterwords the waitress noted that we had a meal that was based in heavy cream sauce, Something we did not recognize at the time. Very disappointed in the fact that a Legitimate food intolerance was noted prior to ordering and the waitress did not stop us or inform us of our order was heavy in dairy
Love this place. Great food and fantastic service.
Great service, nice atmosphere, very good food. Not all sauces were equally outstanding, but overall an excellent experience.
We eat here anytime we are in Nashville visiting our daughter. We love the food and they surprised us with a “nut free” menu. That is very appreciated. I
Love the Vindaloo! There is something for everyone!
This restaurant is one of my favorites. Service and food is always amazing. Cannot day enough
Chicken and waffles were tasting ONLY of honey. So many flavors on plate but everything was submerged in honey- could not taste anything else. Very disappointing
Christmas gathering. Perfect place for a larger group.
In a city full of crowded restaurants with bright and noisy rooms. This is the best business meeting lunch spot in Nashville. You can have an actual conversation and enjoy beautiful food.
Although there were MANY great flavors some fell flat. The favorite at our table...the lamb nachos.
Parking was an issue.
I am a vegan and the chef accommodated me by creating a dish which was delicious. Would love to see a vegan item or two on this menu. Given the ingredients in this food, it should be easily doable.
