Very limited lunch buffet. I tried 4 or 5 different items, and everything lacked flavor. One thing it did provide was some grade A heartburn! The naan bread and the water were good. Everything else was pretty much flavorless. No kheer which was hugely disappointing. The only dessert available was some gulab jamun of a very odd consistency. The taste... More

The food was incredible, but the place was fairly small for the price of the meals. But I would recommend trying it if you like Indian food.

We ordered goat korma with vegetable fried rice and chicken tandoori with bread. They kept us waiting for nearly an hour. After 40 minutes of wait, when I told them we'll have to leave, the waiter asked if we had to go somewhere (AS IF ITS HIS BUSINESS TO CHECK UPON OUR SCHEDULE), and I said yes we have to... More

Located in Bloomington, this Indian restaurant is within walking distance (about a mile or so) of several hotels as well as the Mall of America, which itself is located across the highway from the Minneapolis-St Paul Airport. Situated in a small shopping center, a short distance from the WalMart, I almost couldn't find it, as it sits back in the... More

I was hesitant at first as it's in a strip mall. The owner is a little crabby and he had his two high school aged kids waiting tables. But the food is 5 stars all the way. My wife had tikka masala and I had Murgh Malai Pasanda which has an almond and cashew curry sauce. Perfect.The naan is to... More

Their menu is incredibly versitalie, and you're sure to find something you'll like. I've become a diehard fan of their naan and biryani, but the curries I've gone back... More

You step into this little cafe in an modest strip mall and the wondrous smell is followed by authentic Indian food that lives up to that first whiff. Quiet almost shy staff take your order and soon bring out steamy plates of some of the best North & South Indian food around. And I've tasted a lot. Dosa arrives routinely... More

This place has some of the best Indian food I've ever eaten. It's not big on atmosphere being a small restaurant in a strip mall but the service is very good. We enjoy Indian food and this place just does it right. Great value. Try the Naan bread with onion. Anytime we are in this area we stop by for... More
