Located in an odd-strip mall on the north I-394 frontage road in Wayzata, Bukhara is a destination; seeing it from the highway one would have no clue how to get to it. They've been at this location for 12 years, so there have to be...a lot of fans.
If you make the effort to find, you'll be pleasantly surprised with the service, menu and quality of the food. The vegetable samosas dipped in the homemade tamarind sauce (which they sell for $10/±pint are delicious. The lamb madrassa was excellent, even though it was served not as spicy as I had requested. The tandoori chicken was cooked to perfection and delicious.
The papadam was crisp and had just enough of a bite to make it memorable. All dishes come with white basmati rice and buttered nan.
The portions are generous. If you ask for a container for leftovers they'll also bring a fresh dish of basmati rice at no charge.
It's a challenge to find Bukhara, but well worth the effort!More
