The restaurant is very small but food is food

The restaurant is a café so not much of siting room in it. The service is good and polite. The person taking my order was patient and was ready to answer any questions. The food was good and worth it

I get take-away or eat at India Cafe whenever I'm in Minneapolis/Bloomington for the night. I just love what they do. I appreciate so much that they have the traditional (American) favorites like tandoor meats, curries, etc. but then also have the south-Indian dosas and the like. So much yum!

This is a small restaurant that dishes out great food at a very economical price. Though it is no frills their food gets top marks. The guy from Nepal who is out at front handling customers is very friendly, listens to your needs, and provides great service. We customized our order due to kids and they were very much happy...

A very good Indian food, I visited twice back to back for my dinner. I did not dine in but did a take out. Chapati's were good and I loved the chicken Tikka Masal. If I get a chance to visit Minneapolis again. I would try a take out again for sure.

Tucked away in the middle of a strip mall, the India Cafe serves up very tasty food. Service was good and friendly. Definitely a 'dive' feel to the place, but the super tasty food more than makes up for it. The vegetable samosas I got were very fresh and the dipping sauces really compliment the samosas. Went with a basic... More

Ok, so let me just say that this place may not be some eloquent restaurant with fancy decor but it's seriously one of the best indian food I've had in Minnesota. I'm a hardcore fan of biryani and this place makes the best biryani in town! I stumbled upon this place on my way back to my friend's hotel from... More

I was staying home with my sick baby and my husband out for work! I called them since 8 pm and they are closing at 10. First, they don't have delivery so I tried to call a cap to deliver food for me after an hour I could arrange a cap to pick up the food for me. I called... More

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
