Never get a take out from this place 12/19/2010

Last week we had goat curry take out from Chola's for dinner. We ended up trashing all of it, it was so bad. The curry was like some goat ( bone) pieces and water poured on it. It was horrible and did come cheap too. more

Great Indian Food 12/2/2010

I'm Native Texan, caucasian, and love Indian cuisine. Chola Restaurant in Round Rock serves excellent food, in a warm, friendly atmosphere. I've eaten there perhaps 20 times in the last 2 years, often enough that the staff recognizes me. I've eaten most often during the buffet, but also a few times in the evenings when one must order from the menu. I was VERY happy to find an Indian restaurant of such high quality, North of downtown Austin. I've eaten at many Indian places down in Austin - Chola is better than most. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food on the buffet. I expect (from experience with other buffets) that the buffet would be 'over cooked' and in general less tasty than individually prepared dishes. Chola's buffet food is fresh and TASTY! uhmmm... I just may have to eat lunch there. The buffet is about $10, meals from the menu cost more - primarily because I order 3 or 4 items. The restaurant building interior has a 'charm' in that it's not all polished and shiny/glitzy/modern like many of the (other cuisines) in the same area... although it does appear 'shabby' as if the owners did the decor rather than hiring 'professionals'. Be that as it may - I'm there to eat, I'm not distracted by the decor. more

Best Indian Restaurant Food in Central Texas. 8/22/2009

Been going there since it opened. Decent food but not great. Level of Service varies, and is not consistent. Quality of food is fairly consistent. Better than most Indian/ Pakistani restaurants in Central Texas. Could greatly improve on cleanliness/ presentation/ ambience. Dont even think for a moment that this what Indian cuisine is all about. It is far greater and diverse than they offer. Pros: Decent food Cons: Could be a lot better more

Awful - but really awful 6/12/2009

The place is not clean. I ordered a lamb curry. It was not edible. If there was a piece of actual meat in the dish I did not find it. There was an abundance of gristle though. I cannot tell the difference between lamb gristle and any other kind, so I will presume it was lamb gristle as the dish had lamb in its name. Never, never, never will I go back. I have eaten Indian cuisine in all the major cities in the US and Europe. Yes, not all of it was good - but this meal was disgusting. The five star reviews in this list must have been submitted by either the owners or by people who have never tasted decent food. I've eaten at Bombay Grill and Taj Palace - both are better by leaps and bounds over Chola - or is that Choka? Pros: nothing Cons: dirty and the food is awful more

Very pleasantly surprised! 4/13/2009

We have been by this place several times eating at Zorba's, but were reluctant to go in because the restaurant is usually slow and we've seen a couple less than thrilled reviews. Wanting to try something different, we finally went in, and were rewarded with excellent, attentive service, a clean, welcoming interior, and and incredibly delicious Indian meal. We would recommend the vegetarian appetizer sampler, which came quickly and was very flavorful. The lamb was very tender, the sauces fresh and well balanced, the bread freshly rolled and out of the oven! Though the bill was a little higher than our usual cultural cuisine/pug grub fare, we found care and excellence in so much of this restaurant that we will certainly be back. Pros: Excellent food, generous portions Cons: A bit pricey more

Really bad 1/22/2009

I have high doubts abt the hygiene @ this place...along with the was TERRIBLE....10$ down the drain...spare your time, money n health n don't come here Cons: Bad food...and place looks dirty more

not welcoming:( 6/8/2008

My family and I went to the buffet so that we could experience ALL of the dishes because we were unfamiliar with Indian Cuisine and were hoping to find a new restaurant to add to our line up of favorites. Well, upon arriving, we walked in to see a 'please wait to be seated' sign, so we was very awkward...the owners looked at us and kept going (I had recognized them from an add in the Pflugerville Pflag)...finally one of them seated us, but didn't say a word. We were seated along the far side wall of the restaurant, with the other 3 caucasion patrons in the place. I felt 'segregated' was very uncomfortable. We were stared at quite a bit by the other Indian patrons as if we were intruding on a family reunion. We sat and waited for a drink order to be taken or SOMETHING..but no one said a word to us, so we decided to just start getting our food from the buffet, and I tried to get a little of everything to get the full experience. Let me say that there were a few things I liked, but my children wouldn't eat anything. It was really spicey, which I'm ok with knowing that is traditional for Indian food, but there was absolutely NOTHING for the kids other than maybe white rice and fresh fruit. I will say I enjoyed the breads and the eggplant dish...but I felt so awkward just 'being' there, it made it hard to really take my time and discover the flavors. After we were finished, NO ONE came to us to deliver a ticket to pay...we sat and sat once again, unitl my husband had to go ASK to pay. We left with a sense that we just made a huge mistake in trying something new and a large dent in our wallet (the adult buffet was OVER $11)! I would probably recommend this place if you are a native of India..those patrons probabaly thoroughly enjoyed their meal), but NOT for newcomers :( Too bad. Pros: can try anything Cons: EVERYTHING ELSE! more

Good Food, Good Service 5/22/2008

My family has been going here since it opened. I have been to Indian rest around the world, including England and the West Indies, and this one holds it own in comparison. The food is very fresh, you can tell the do not use canned or frozen foods. The sauces on the dishes have great flavor. Their lunch buffets are even really good and fresh, and I typically do not like buffets due to typically having low quality food. We have also always had great service. Pros: fresh quality ingredients used in the food Cons: decor could be better and updated more

Great Food! 12/14/2007

We eat at Chola a few times a month and have never been disappointed. Friendly service and the best Saag Paneer around! Pros: Good parking, friendly service, great food more

If you are looking for good Indian food look elsewhere 12/7/2007

I don't have any complaints about the service (as one review had)... however, I must say, I was very disappointed with the food. I have been to many Indian restaurants (cities include: Los Angeles & greater area, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Philadelphia, DC, New York & Montreal). The food at Chola was not horrible it was just: Blah. Besides the flavors being very bland the curries had very little meat. The thing that set the tone for me was the watered-down chutneys that were brought to the table with the papadums. There is no way I'd eat there again, unless it's free. Pros: Didn't have to wait to be seated. Cons: Food is not worth the price. more

If you want to pay for a high dollar dinner and get treated unprofessionally, Go For It!!!! 10/22/2007

The gentleman running the place is a short Indian guy with mustache. My wife's entree cost us $11.99 and we had asked ahead of time if it was a good size portion and he mentioned that it was enough for 2. When her food arrived, it had 2 pieces of cheese in it. We asked the chef to fix it. In return, that manager came and misbehaved with us saying that Indian food is very expensive and we had no right to talk to chef even if the food is terrible. Basically, he ruined our family outing. When we were leaving, he said that food was free but we did not accept it and payed the bill, especially after having being publically insulted. Stay away from this place! If you want to spend good money, might as well go to a resturant which can provide you good food with a pleasant relaxing evening. We have had Indian food at a lot of places but Shame on Chola!! more

Best Indian Food in the Area 6/19/2007

I brought my mother here yesterday...and they took the time to explain food choices, ingredients. They were so friendly! The atmosphere was wonderful...and the food was great! I've had Indian food several times before, however, this is positively the best I've had. Try the combination meals: you get to try a little of mostly everything...amazing! Pros: Great Services, Friendly Atmosphere, Excellent Food more

YUM..YUM...YUM...YUMMMMMMM!!!!!! 3/4/2007

If you love Indian you have to go-delish~~~Very friendly, just a great experince, we will be back again and again :) Pros: FOOD Cons: nothing more
