Good dinner

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... read 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

ABSOLUTE worst dining experience of my life. I went there on Valentine's Day. We had made reservations a couple weeks before then and while the concept of a reservation is typically to avoid having to wait more than 5-10 minutes. Not only did we wait roughly 20 minutes past our 7:00 pm reservations to even have anyone acknowledge we merely... More

Reasonably priced buffet ($12 on a Saturday); very authentic and quite good. goat, chick peas, tandoori chicken, basmati rice, naan, too much to remember -- it was all good!

We were disappointed on our recent visit. Service was poor. Food was average. My wife felt sick after the dinner. Not sure if the food was bad.

I had been here for lunch and also for dinner. I felt the lunch was good but limited option for a veggie meal. The taste of food was good. All types of drinks are available. I reccomend to visit this place during twins matches when the drinks specially the bud beer is offered for less.

We go to this place almost every fortnight, reason is the quality and taste of food. This review is only for ala-carte.The food items are fresh and very nicely cooked,though serving size is small and prices are much on a higher side, but still you will like the place for its ambience. The staff is nice and courteous especially one... More
