It's always difficult to taste some exotic food outside of their original country because the taste has been adapted to the host country.... For example Chinese food in the US is different that in UK or France or... China.... Gorkha palace is great place because it makes us to travel a little bit in Nepal per its authenticity.

Decades ago, THE place for good Indian cuisine in Minnesota was Tandoors - located little more than a block from where Gorkha Palace is now. But, as the gentrification of the area commenced, rent increases forced Tandoors to flee to suburbia, and Northeast was left without ANY Indian food for over a decade. But now it has Gordka, and it... More

Went their for the first time. They had great food and great service. The waitress made many suggestions - both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. We tried everything she recommended and enjoyed all of it. They had a small patio so we were able to sit outside and enjoy the weather. We had the MoMo's - "what the restaurant was founded on"...

I visited Gorkha Palace on a Friday for the buffet with my family. There were definitely some Nepali twists to the generally Indian food. I loved the Nepali version of wings, spicier and more flavorsome. We also ordered momos which were decent. The restaurant is small and there some baseboards that were tearing off ... It would be good if... More

I've eaten at Gorkha Palace multiple times, normally for the lunch buffet. The restaurant is often busy, but I've never had to wait long to get a table. It's a casual restaurant, so there isn't a hostess stand; the servers generally point to a table and ask, "Is that ok?" But I've found the servers to be extremely kind and... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant hoping that we would get a nice ethnic good. Lo and behold, they were so busy and didn't notice us standing at the door for a few minutes. Another party came after us, the owner (or a worker, not sure) came and greeted them and took them to a table. We were completely... More

Living in NE Minneapolis is a foodie heaven, and Gorkha is our all-time favorite. Get the mo-mo's and be sure to be adventurous and try the yak, although the veggie and turkey mo-mo's are my favorite. The chicken sekuwa is wonderful (especially fabulous with naan and raita). The chicken tikka and palak paneer are go-to's for us -- typical but... More

After many great reviews on Trip Advisor we went out of our way to go here for dinner. We had a fantastic server (Sarah) and she made the meal all the more wonderful. The food was good, but not the best we have ever had. We ordered the famous Yak Mo Mo and the Chicken Coconut along with Kishimi Naan.... More

I generally hate reviews that add nothing. However, not much can be said that has not already been said. The only think that people don't really say much about is the Mo Mo's. I never had one before, but like dim sum. They are great! Good flavor and texture. Also, who doesn't love Yak?!?? Seriously, go to the Gorkha Palace... More
