The food was not up to the mark (had lunch buffet). The starters were all soggy, the main course was decent but the dessert (Gulab Jamun) was horrendous. I was in Minneapolis for 4 weeks but avoided to go any time later.

My husband & I love Indian food, so were excited to try Dancing Ganesha. We had dinner there on a Saturday night, around 7pm. Seating was readily available - it's only slightly off the beaten path in downtown Minneapolis, so was an easy walk from our theater show. I had the Tikka Chicken and my husband had Tikka Marsala -... More

Ate early on Saturday evening. Had tikka masala and tandoori chicken. Apps of samosas. All the food was hot and very tasty. Waiter was very pleasant and took good care of us.

My friends and I eat here pretty darn regularly. We absolutely love the food. For the most part the service is top notch- there is one guy who is just absolutely lovely. I wish I could remember his name. We have the same female server a couple of times. She's got some good recommendations. My only complaint is that she... More

I went out to this restaurant for a friend's birthday and it was sublime. I've never (ever) eaten Indian food before but I was incredibly impressed and delighted. The service was a titch slow, but we didn't mind. It was made up for by the fact that our waiter, I believe his name was Adrian, was extremely chatty and hilarious.... More

I started with the coconut red pepper soup which had fabulous flavors of, well, coconut and bell peppers but it was a little cup for $6. Lamb rogan josh was spot on but Mild+ was not spicy enough for my palette. Food shouldn't be punishingly hot but have a decent kick. Laurie had the Neelgiri which was very tasty and... More

Loved the chicken 65, biryani and masala dosa. Good service, one of the good Indian restaurants I have been to for a long time.👍

I know, I know...not really the type of restaurant to bring a 14-mo.-old, but we were there for early dinner so the crowds hadn't arrived. The waiter was very thoughtful and little Jane caught the eye of a female server to stopped by a couple of times to entertain and be entertained by her. Our take on the food: we... More

The location is good and is spacious.Paid parking is just next door in a multi storey car park. We had the crispy crepes called dosas that were very good. Stick to the conventional masala dosas though, and not the variants like chicken tikka masala dosas. The food was above average, but the service was pretty slow, even when the restaurant... More
