Cholanad is the best kept secret in Chapel Hill. The food is outstanding, service is wonderful, the ambiance is diverse. I have been here with a large group of friends and sat outside, on a first date in a quiet corner, at the bar to watch a game, and with my family of multiple generations. This is my favorite restaurant in Chapel Hill, mostly because of the food. And dedicated parking!

We ordered the Brussel sprouts and 2 pizzas. The brussel sprouts were very good but we never got the pizzas. Apparently the kitchen was slammed and after about 20-25 minutes of not getting our pizzas we asked how long the wait would be and they had no idea how long it would be. So we decided to leave. The restaurant did not charge us for the brussel sprouts which was nice but we were really looking forward to the pizza. Not sure if we’ll go back. The pizza could be the best pizza ever but what good does that do me if they can get it to me. Maybe we’ll go back one day when it’s not so busy.

Food and waut staff terrific!! With their hours being so very limited i would think their seating and table clearing would be better. They seem to always be out of sorts at the hostess stand when busy. Too many hostesses not enough bus staff

The only complaint about the food is as the prime rib was warmed up on a flat top and was still cool. The service was great except for there doesn’t appear to have a dress code for the servers

I eat here every time I visit my Mom in Cary, NC. The food is always reliably good. The butcher's cut steak is awesome & so are the burgers. This spot is a family favorite. On my last trip, I bought my dog and we sat outside. The waitress was so friendly and accommodating--we enjoyed eating outside and will be back!
