A restaurant that its owner describes as “the Indian version of Chipotle or Panda Express,” is set to open in Dunwoody this fall.
Sankranti “Nimms” Nimmagadda’s fast-casual Indian eatery Sankranti, which will be located at 237 Perimeter Center Pkwy in the State Farm Building, will be open for lunch and dinner.
Sankranti, which translates to “positive change” in Sanskrit, will offer menu items from all regions of India, including kathi rolls, curry bowls, kabobs, pulao, samosas and salads. The “assembly line-style” format asks guests to order at the counter and choose from proteins such as tikka chicken, malai chicken and lamb, or vegetarian options like paneer tikka masala and mixed vegetable kurma.
The 1,700-square-foot space will feature an open kitchen and counter, seating for 30 guests at high-top tables indoors and outdoor seating for an additional 30.
Nimmagadda also owns a fine dining restaurant and banquet hall in Johns Creek, also called Sankranti. He plans to open 10 more locations of the fast-casual concept in metro Atlanta in 2022, with the goal of franchising nationwide.
A representative for the restaurant did not immediately respond to a request for more information on whether the restaurant will serve alcohol and if delivery will be offered.
