City Pages' Description

The owners of Nala Pak take Indian food upscale, both in ambiance (it's in the former home of Willie's Wine Bar in downtown Minneapolis) and fare. The wide-reaching menu includes everything from snack foods found in India's streets to Continental-style fare served in its fancy hotels. It reaches across India's regions and beyond its borders, with vegetarian dosas from the south; tandoori, or clay-oven-cooked, meats from the north; and seafood from the western coast. There are dishes with Chinese, Afghan, and even Anglo influences, such as mulligatawny soup, the famous dish Indian cooks created to please the British Raj. Classics like biryani, paneer butter masala, and gobi Manchurian are delicious, but the upscale dishes and service aren't reliable enough to make Dancing Ganesha feel like it's breaking much new ground.

    The manager refused to accept a valid $25 gift certificate and gave me a measly 15% discount leaving me with the rest of the bill for the evening. Very poor customer service. We will not be returning.

    This is great Indian food even if on the upscale side of things. Currently one of my favs in the city for Indian. I love the lamb. This is kind of hidden but would be a super location for before or after the theater (take your pick of any of the theater's on Hennepin). It is getting busier each time I go so go now!

    Order the Gobe Lahsuni appetizer, this cauliflower is so good I swear they make it with crack cocaine. Doesn't even taste like cauliflower. Amazing.

    Excellent lunch buffet and FANTASTIC Happy Hour!!

  • Bite Squad on 01/10/13

    Yum! Chicken tikka masala! But wouldn't you prefer all this tasty cuisine in your own home? www.bitesquad.com will bring it to you. Get $5 off your first order with code "FOURSQUARE".

    very likely the worst service I've had in any restaurant, EVER
