Great food, great price

I with two friends and everyone loved what they ordered. The price was very appropriate for the food. We all had different types of curry, and you can adjust how spicy you want it with a number (1-5, 5 being very spicy). Quite the hidden gem.

I have been here several times and try to make it a point to visit every time I am in the city. Consistently good food and good service. It can be a bit noisy when it is full (it is just one large room), but it is worth it.

Inviting ambiance, friendly staff, authentic and amazing food (I still can't get over how much I ate) are more than enough reasons to eat at Gorkha Palace. I was additionally impressed by their concern for environment (all their food is organic and I saw they had replaced paper towels); the owner shared they promoted local farmers and the buffet served...

I know that Gorkha Palace is one of the best South Asian places in the Twin Cities and yet I am always pleasantly surprised on top of this. Recently they discontinued their lunch buffet except on Fridays and made their entire menu organic. Indian buffets tend so often to suffer from steam table exhaustion. Every dish is prepared to order... More

Well, the problem was with what I ordered, not the food here. You just have to be careful. When they say it's spicy - they mean something far and above anything I've ever experienced. I had the Spicy Newari Chicken. The menu read

I'm not usually the biggest fan of Indian food because I'm not the best with spicy food, but Gorkha is great! Very good service, food was out in a timely fashion, and it was yummy. We got the combo dumplings, and a few specials.

We eat here almost weekly and have never been disappointed. We are about 50/50 eat in/take out and again always good. The restaurant tries to use local ingredients and organic when able. The Friday lunch buffet is a treat, but don't plan on going back to work because you will need a nap after such a great lunch. The staff... More

The reviews about this place don't lie. The food was great! Free parking was nice. The ambience was good. Quite clean. Will stop again.

No, we didn't really have the Laasi drink, which would have been great on a hot summer day, but it was very cold today. We had Palak (spinach) chicken, mixed vegi curry (these two entrees came with boiled rice), plain naan (the best my dad has had so far), chicken biryani, and Spicy Newari Chicken Choyla, which came with lentil...

Planned visit with a few other couples. We ordered the chicken chili for an appetizer, the mono platter, and the navetten korma (excuse spelling). Sooo much tasty food! They give you loads of rice and the service was great. Ps the chai tea is tasty!
