Maneet Chauhan is giving an update on her beloved Nashville restaurant, Chauhan Ale & Masala House, after the dining room flooded last week. The Food Network star said the restaurant is open for take-out only, while she and her husband, Vivek Deora, work to get the indoor dining room open again.
“The saying goes ‘Slow and steady’ but we hardly follow the norm, it’s ‘fast and furious’ for us at [Chauhan Ale & Masala House],” Chauhan posted on social media, alongside a photo of the couple hard at work. “Thank you all for the love, support, understanding and well wishes that you have been sending our way. With [Vivek Deora] leading the charge, the team and I are impatiently waiting to open our doors and welcome y’all back with some deliciousness. See you next week.”
In a separate social media post, Chauhan urged restaurant patrons to order their food to-go while they worked hard to get Chauhan Ale & Masala House up and running.
“Hey y’all!,” posted the chef. “We are hard at work to get back up and running so we can welcome you into our dining room as soon as possible! In the meantime, we will be OPEN for TAKE-OUT starting tomorrow at 4pm. Give us a call from 2pm on at 615.242.8426 or place an order online for carry-out or delivery … Thanks for your support, we’ll be back soon & better than ever!”

Chauhan first announced the flooding of Chauhan Ale & Masala House on July 20.
“When it rains it pours y’all,” she posted. “We are working on getting back up and running but remain temporary closed for the safety of our team and patrons alike. We apologize for the inconvenience, we miss seeing your beautiful faces! Check out our sister restaurant Chaatable to satisfy your curry cravings and stay tuned to our socials for updates!”
CLOSED JULY 20 🌧
When it rains it pours y’all. We are working on getting back up and running but remain temporary closed…
Chauhan never planned on permanently moving from her New York City home to Nashville, until a medical emergency changed her mind.
“As luck would have it, the day we opened the restaurant, our son decided to be born,” Chauhan told Southern Living. “He was three months premature… We said that if he was so adamant on being a Nashvillian, who were we to stop it?”
“We were starting a new business with a baby in the neonatal ICU. It’s a very emotional time for a parent,” Chauhan continued. “The way the entire city rallied around us was heartwarming, so I think that’s the time we were like, ‘Okay, we have arrived home.’”
