Copper Modern Indian Cuisine
J Aaron Hales
This place was amazing! Everyone LOVED their dish (seafood medley, veggie goat cheese croquettes, lamb, and chicken Masala). Honestly, nothing bad to say. I've eaten a lot of Indian Food and this modern cuisine was delicious and many options we hadn't tried before. The service was also great and the staff was very personable. The seafood medley and veggie croquettes were the big stars, but also try the cauliflower first course.
Copper Modern Indian was a quite the place regarding location. Copper is inside an old house turned restaurant. The house is still quite sectioned off much like it would have been with the original homes layout. Decorated with hand crafted child like portraits around the place including the bathroom. Pricing the food is much like you're typical mom and pop Indian shop you found around Charlotte. The flavor was definitely there. Delicious with every bite. The food was plated beautiful considering we all know how good but mess Indian food can be at times once placed on a plate or bowl. The only concern I may have is the serving sizes. It's not a large quantity for the price regarding the protein. Tons of gravy/sauce but not at all enough protein to fill anyone up without eating tons of the rice. All in all it was nice to visit an upscale India restaurant that serves cocktails, wine and liquor.
A good option for people looking to try Indian flavors but afraid of Indian spice levels.. all the items were flavorful but at the same time mild spicy. Only thing I would expect from restaurant is to add a Biryani item in the menu. Cocktails were good as well
Indian restaurants typically just satisfy your taste buds. Very rarely do they get the whole dining experience right. Copper is impressive in every regard, from delicious modern take in classic Indian cuisine, presented in palatable fashion and served in a historic building. Everything we ordered was sumptuous, and especially liked the chicken Mirch Malai. Definitely check them out, I will everytime I am back in Charlotte.
Loved our meal, great flavor, quick service. Casual but upscale at the same time. There is a covered patio as well as an uncovered patio. My wife loves extra spicy and this delivered.
