Fast-casual Indian restaurant in at Atlantic Station after Tin Drum closure

Atlantic Station saw a lot of changes in its restaurant lineup in 2017, and the mixed-use development is starting the year with the announcement of another.

Indian concept NaanStop is set to open this spring in a 2,200 square-foot space vacated at the end of the year by chain Tin Drum Asian Kitchen.

Founded by brothers Neal and Samir Idnani, who learned to cook with their mother, NaanStop allows customers to choose a protein on a salad, rice bowl or naanwich, with dishes including Chicken Tikka Masala and Samosas.

The Atlantic Station location will be the third for NaanStop, adding to their Downtown and Buckhead locations.

"Atlantic Station embodies all Midtown Atlanta has to offer, and we believe our mom’s delicious Indian cuisine will be a great fit for the neighborhood," Neal Idnani said in a statement.

The addition of NaanStop and shuttering of Tin Drum is the latest in a series of openings and closures at Atlantic Station in the past year, including the recently announced closing of Rosa Mexicano ; the opening of salad concept Salata , which replaced Moe's Southwest Grill ; and the announcement that Gayu-Kaku Japanese BBQ will take over the space vacated by Copeland's Cheesecake Bistro at the beginning of 2017 .
