This is a casual type place serving average Indian food. Except their naan was just plain fabulous. We had chutneys to go with the naan and all of them were good. They do include a tomato chutney but we also got a mint one. We had some sort of a dumpling, like a pot sticker, a MoMo for an appetizer... More

Very Limited menu. I will not even call it Indian. Nothing Indian about it. Not recommended Atleast for an Indian.

This food was catered in at a work function so I don't know how the restaurant setting is but I really enjoyed the food. I ate the Mixed Veggie Curry on a bed of rice. There was a great selection of vegetables- none of which were overcooked. It was so flavorful and creamy. I will definitely be making a trip... More

I got an anniversary coupon for $10 off for dine in or take away from Gorka Palace so I decided to use it and try a take away. We ordered 3 entrees. Each entree was expensive averaging $18 each, however, I thought it was worth a try. When I got home, I found the entree was the size of a... More

We decided to eat at Gorkha Palace because our hotel had reccomended and they do have good reviewed from Tripadvisor. We had ordered the Buff Momo (steam dumplings) and Lamb Sekuwa. The dumplings were pretty tasty. The Lamb Sekura was a bit too much sodium and sour for my taste bud. But over all was great experienced.

We ate at Gorkha's Palace for the first time last week. The food was really good with great flavors. I had the Paalak Paneer which is Spinach & paneer (Indian cheese) simmered in a rich creamy sauce of organic tomatoes and cream. The others in our party had Chicken Curry, Chicken Coconut, and Shrimp Biryani which were enjoyed also. Very... More

We happened upon Gorkha Palace looking for a place to eat after visiting Surdyk's for their wine sale; we have been pining for mo mo's since our trip to Dharmsala, India in 2011 ... who knew there was a Tibetan/Nepali/Indian restaurant in Minneapolis? This is a small, unpretentious place with thoughtful, friendly waitstaff and absolutely wonderful food. We were amazed;... More

Every aspect of the dining experience is a pleasure. Food is varied, authentic, and delicious. Hospitality is genuine. My last visit was to their Friday buffet. There were about 13 choices. Sufficient variety and a good sample of what they offer. They wisely keep the focus on quality. There are choices for vegetarians, vegans and folks who like meat/chicken. The... More

Stopped here after reading an article about this restaurant. Tried the vegetable Samosas, Chicken Coconut, Garlic Naan, and a Mango Lassi. All of the food was excellent! Service was very good. Their free parking lot was very convenient. We will definitely be back!

it appears to be a hole in the wall type of place inside and out. However, the good could've been worth a billion dollars. Traditional and unique indian food served at different spice levels. Hint of Nepalese influence. Nice to know that good Indian food exists in Minneapolis! will definitely return
