Our meals were excellent. We had appetizers and dinner. All of our dishes were great. Chicken Tikka Masala and Lamb Vindelo were especially good.

Worst service I have had in a very long time. Wait time to get your order placed and then getting the order is very long and the servers don't care about anything. Automatic gratuity of 18% is added at the end (which probably explains why the server won't care at all). No1 even comes back to fill the glasses or... More

I had a very nice dinner here with an Indian co-worker that I was attending a conference with in Minneapolis. As he was the expert he did all the ordering and it was delicious. We ordered medium spice and it was a bit on the hot side but as I like my food on the hot side it was perfect.... More

Went with a large group of ten people. We were all taken very good care of. Everything I tried was flavorful, interesting and delicious. Both vegetarian and meat items available. When they say spicy, they mean it. Lol. Very nice place. Interesting decor.

Went to this place after a long time, a lot has changed since. The change is actually good. The service has improved and so has the food quality. We ordered tandoori chicken which was sizzling hot and very tasty. Masala dosa was crispy and the lamp biryani was good as well. Overall a great experience to have a dinner back... More

My wife and I visit Dancing Genesha approximately once a month due to its great and consistent food. We really enjoy most entrees especially the Rogan Josh and Mattar Paneer. One thing to note is that the spice level is generally higher than other restaurants. So a "medium" spicy is more of medium-high in other restaurants but still delicious. One... More

I had heard raves about this Minneapolis restaurant. The food delivered in flavor and spices and was reminiscent of time spent in Northern India sharing meals with friends. Loved the dosas and samosas. The decor was pleasant and you could dine outside although we chose not to . I expected the name to really be an over the top experience... More

Went to the place twice already this month and both experiences were good. Service is good, food does not take too much time to be prepared and even the mild options are very good. The space is welcoming and comfortable. Overall I was very pleased and surely will return.

Loved the food, ambience and service! The tastes amongst the 4 of us dining were very different. I like it super spicy, and the Biryani exceeded my expectations. My husband said the Lamb Vindaloo was the best he has ever had. The Tandoori chicken was scrumptious, and the mild tomato dish that another guest ordered were just right for someone... More
