Incredibly slow service, never seen anything like it, even tho only a few people were in the dining room. No one came to apologize or explain the delay. In fact, very little service, couldn't get water glasses filled. Lots of delivery food going out the door, guess that is their priority. Delicious lamb stew and tandoori chicken, good portions. Menu... More

Inattentive service, very few labels on the food, so we didn't know what we were eating. Some food was tasty, but a lot of it was muddy.

I had the pleasure of having dinner here on a recent trip to Minneapolis. This was one of the best meals that I’ve ever had, hands down. The lamb had a flavors that I’ve never experienced before and the meat literally fell off the bone. The chicken tikka masala was full of flavor and wasn’t oily or overly creamy. The... More

I visited this restaurant during my business visit to MPLS. The main reason to select this hotel was that it was right below the service apartment where I stayed. I had been for both dinner and lunch. Dinner is usually ala carte and Lunch was a good buffet. I recommend to Lunch buffet as it reasonable and has lots of... More

The title says everything...it's my favorite Indian food in MPLS! The atmosphere is cozy, and the waitstaff are super friendly. The negative reviews I see are focused mainly on the lunch buffet, but I've only ever gone here for dinner or take out (and I usually get the same order...cheese pakora, chana masala, rice, and naan). The wine is good,... More

Have eaten here a year ago and enjoyed the buffet. Returned with guests, expecting the same quality. We arrived at 2pm (buffet closed at 3pm) on a Sunday at the south Indian branch (located in same building as North Indian Bombay Bistro, confusing walk down the hall and around a couple of corners). There is no restroom in the South... More

The sign reads open at 11:00am. They were open but there was no food until about 11:07am and they weren't fully prepared until about 11:20am. The food on the buffet was good. The nan had to be requested but was piping hot and delicious.

I went here for Sunday Buffet. Starters were good but the main course was tasting bad. Paneer and Chole were really bad.
