I had not been to Gorkha Palace in several years and was delighted with what I found. It still has a warm and friendly interior. The service was prompt and friendly. Everything we tried was very well made with the crispness of flavors notable in...trans-Himalayan restaurants. I sampled a South Indian preparation of tofu and vegetables in a coconut gravy with curry leaves. It was nicely done. We tasted several other dishes and all of them were done at an even higher standard than I recalled. I shall return.More

We lived within a few blocks of Gorkha for several years, and this was our go-to for great food! We always seek out restaurants that concentrate on organic and local sourcing, and sadly, Gorkha is one of the few options available, but that makes the...decision easy! The staff are always very attentive to details and kind and welcoming. Although it's not cheap, it's worth every cent for the high quality we've learned to expect consistently. We are proud to support our local and independent businesses and always look forward to the next time we get to go to Gorkha!More

Gorkha Palace offers a meal that is ok at best. I can't say anything better than that. For the cost of this food, the quality is just not there. I found the food bland overall. Multiple entrees and even the garlic naan simply lacked flavor....The meat was overcooked and dry. There is much better Indian food to be found in the area.More

Unpretentious with great service and great food. Very reasonably priced. A small menu and everything the four of us had was perfect.

In our opinion this is the best Indian/Nepali/Tibetan restaurant in the Twin Cities. It is a lovely space that is quiet enough to have a pleasant conversation, and the food is absolutely wonderful. We had the Goan shrimp curry and the lamb vindaloo, and both...were just delicious. The side dishes—raita, naan, lassi, and papadams—we’re also great. Even the service was on point—courteous, prompt, and friendly. I can’t think of a single negative thing to say about this place. If you’re in the mood for south Asian food this is definitely the place to go.More

We started with veggie pakora and an assortment of momo, both of which were outstanding. The veggie momo were perhaps the best although the buffalo momo were very good. We followed with chicken sekuwa and chicken curry along with an outstanding goan shrimp curry. The...naan from the Tandor clay oven was excellent (both the garlic and plain). We also tried the poori, a fried Indian flatbread that was new to us and also very good. The raita was fabulous. We brought our own wine, which was great, and their corkage fee was very modest ($10). The meal was excellent and of great value. What a great time!More

We went for lunch, a table of 4. The server was friendly and efficient, and helpful in choosing from a menu full of items we had never experienced. Typical of Thai food, the seasoning tends to the "hot" side but you can have it made...to your taste so you never have it too hot. The "Gorkha hot" is REALLY hot and left one of our party uncomfortable. Everything we had was delicious and no one was disappointed in their choices. Try the Veggie Pakora appetizer - it was a favorite at our table!More

First time guest with two friends. We were there when they opened and the room filled in just a few minutes. Our waiter was exceptionally patient with a table of rookies and gave us his full attention. He knew the menu perfectly and was able...to help us negotiate the options comfortably. Our dishes came up in due course (the store was full up!) and there was silence around the table as we appreciated our meals. Oh my! I had Paalak Paneer and it was an absolute hit with me. I ordered it Spicy 5 and I think the waiter was concerned. He came by later to check on my heat tolerance. We chatted and he brought out a small bowl of habanero chutney (wahoo!) that really kicked it into overdrive. Very fine! My friends were also very pleased with their dishes and the overall experience. We also had papadums and an out-of-this-world naan that must have been baked in tandoor. I make naan at home and my flavor was pretty close to this, but the dreamy, pillowy texture was eye-opening and profoundly palate-pleasing. My friends said they'll be back to try the menu further before I come back! Oh - the shop says in the menu that they source their ingredients from local, sustainable farms, too. Ok! Ghorka Palace us on my list. It’s a smaller shop, very nicely appointed and very comfortable. Guyan, our waiter, made our visit a wonderful experience. Highly recommended!More

I went here for the momos (very good), but also had a great coconut curry with tofu and vegetables. They offer good local beer.
