I was in Minneapolis on business and started jonesing pretty bad for some Chicken Tikka Masala. The Dancing Ganesha was just a couple of blocks from my hotel so I walked over for an early dinner. This wasn't the best Indian food I've ever had, but it certainly wasn't the worst. I went fairly early, around 4:30, so I was... More

My family and I were trying to find a place to eat on a Saturday night during Hollidazzle parade season and Nicollet Mall was an hour wait so we turned to find something off the parade route. We happened upon this restaurant and it smelled amazing. I was the only one had been to an Indian restaurant before but everyone... More

I have been there a few times. The moment I walked in the door I could tell the server did not want to see us. I am a very nice guy so I didn't understand. We had to wait several minutes just for someone to come over. It was not busy. The server came over just said "ready" I thought... More

We enjoyed our meal at this restaurant. The staff was very attentive and knowledgeable about the food. Everything we ordered was tasty and delicious. Samosas were crispy and delicious. My Kurma dish was saucy and great. You cannot go wrong here.

Had a great dinner here. Got there early and enjoyed happy hours appetizer plus two-for-one drinks. Services could have been a little faster. Overall really enjoyed the dinner.

I visited Dancing Ganesha on sunday lunch buffet. The restraunt had a decent space and ambiance, but only one server! Although he was trying his best to provide quick service, it was just not possible. For the food, the buffet had 3 non-veg items and 3 vegetarian and roti and one pakora as appetiser. The vegetarian selection had dal, kadhi... More

Loved the food. Server was super knowledgeable but very slow. And forgetful. I had to ask for my after dinner coffee three times. By then I was done with the dessert it was meant to compliment. All in all I would go back.

My husband loves to come here for the Dosa! Its always fun to go during Happy Hour, BOGO! The pomegranate martini is delicious! The atmosphere is cool, there are always... More

I had chicken sagwala for my main, which was delicious and packed full of flavor, just as I was hoping for, and my husband thought his main was tasty too. We had vegetable samosas to start (just okay). Wish we had a nice sit down Indian restaurant like this near our home.

I've eaten at quite a few Indian lunch buffets, and finding myself in town alone, thought I'd try this one. Friendly folks; I was seated promptly and upon request was given a short explanation of the buffet. Used dishes were quickly whisked away, and my water was always full. The buffet quality left a bit to be desired... I know... More
