The servers were awful, got our order wrong and looked very tired. Also got our drinks mixed up too. When we asked for containers to takeaway at the end she brought a pile of lids and no containers. Overall was incredibly disinterested. Food was good enough though, wouldn't go again based on service but food was good. Also the restaurant... More

I attended a fundraiser at the restaurant. Appetizers and naan were provided, and they were all so good. I have not been to this restaurant before, but will definitely have to come back and try more dishes. I had thought the parking would be more difficult, but seems to be plenty of street parking.

I had the most lovely dining experience at Gandhi Mahal on a Friday night, 7p. I've always enjoyed the simple but elegant service of many Asian restaurants, but they took it a step further here with attentive and quick service, a primary female waiter assisted by many hands, a visit from the owner or manager to inquire about our experience,...

Came here to have dinner with a friend. Rogan Josh was perfect, absolutely perfect. Garlic Naan was soft and tasted amazing. What more could you want? Will come again!

I go here for lunch often by myself. The lunch buffet has vegetarian and non vegetarian items. Delicious Tandoori Chicken and amazing Palak Paneer. Palak Paneer is my favorite, so I always call ahead because it's not always on the lunch buffet. You can get the buffet takeout also. Spicy and filling!

Having seen this place on Guy Fieri's Food Network show Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, I knew I had to try it if I ever got to Minneapolis. We were not disappointed. Now mind you....I don't have a lot of experience with Indian food, so I have little to compare this with, but both my husband and I very much enjoyed... More

Liked the fact that it was a buffet so one could test and go back for favorites. I did go back for more but paced myself in spite of the good food. The desert was different and good. The doughnut hole looking things were very pleasing.

I went to Gandhi Mahal on a Wed evening for supper. Parking is a bit of a bear, but I found out later they have parking in the rear. Construction in the area did not help. The restaurant is quite large with an nice decor. I found the service very good and knowledgeable, something I have come to expect from... More

We were in town and googled recent Diners, Drive Ins and Dives restaurants in Minneapolis and Indian sounded great, even with our three kids. This place was great! Went there a little later in the evening...warm, inviting and VERY friendly. Tons and tons of flavor. My wife had the mushroom makhani and I had a lamb something or other and... More
