good food, long wait – I actually just stopped by to grab some take out. They said 10-1 minutes. Ended up being more around 25-30 minutes.
I had the lamb curry, which was very tasty. I was pleasantly surprised that the spicy was actually somewhat spicy (as that is rare in MN). For what I got I felt $15 was simply too much, at $10 i would love this place. As it is there are a lot of places out there that are better and have more interesting dishes at this price point.
Great, if you like waiting 45 minutes to eat. – My boyfriend and I went here yesterday for dinner. We arrived at about 5:30, sat down immediately, ordered our food the first time someone came to our table, and didn't get our food until 6:15. The dining room wasn't even near full, so I have no idea what took them so long. The combination dinners look like they're meant for two people to share, but they only give you one cup of daal (which was tasty - but I have no idea whether it was authentic because it's the first time I've ever tried daal). We got the shrimp curry and the cauliflower curry (don't remember their real names), both of which were O.K. We ordered them Mild+, which was actually too hot for both of us.
The food was alright, but the service was bad enough to make us never want to return.
Worth a try – Good food. service could be lot better. Not as spicy as Indian food but spicy enough for your exotic taste.
Authentic Nepali food – We really liked Katahar( Green jack-fruit) entree. We have not found anyother place which serves it. Tasty vegetarian momos comes with spicy chutney.
Humble ingredients are taken to new heights at this Nepali restaurant.
– In Short
This sunny clean corner shop brims with energy, crowds and reasonably priced fare. Photos of snow-capped Himalayas grace the walls, and the two rooms are filled with happy folks, chowing down and conversing. Menu highlights feature potato/pea samosa, Tibetan dumplings and Nepalese curries. There's also momos: steamed or buttery pan-fried dumplings of herb accented meats and vegetables. The fine daal-bhaat (complete curried meals served with basmati rice) are filling and come with dessert.
Cold Soup – We spent $3.95 per person on the Daal soup and it was cold. Food was okay, but it tasted too much like Indian food. I didn't see what was special to Tibetan/Nepali food.
Delicious and exiting! – I have only been there once a couple months ago but food was very, very good. Their curry had a lot of heat to it (we ordered medium) and wonderful, complex flavors. And of course the yak dumplings were incredible. I plan to go back soon.
Interesting and Good – The food was fantastic - varying from simple flavors to spicy curry. The atmosphere was enjoyable - cozy and crisp at the same time. Service was not great - very slow, and inattentive. Drink selection could be better.
Cold, Slow, Overpriced, and Icky – The title says it all -- don't bother with this place. Every time I've been there half the diners have their coats on because it's so cold in the room -- while they wait forever to be served food that is bland, boring, and too salty. Let's face it, there is only so much that you can do with yak.
Orgasim on Grand – Holy yak is all i have to say. Quite possibly the best food i have had in a coons age. I am in love with this restaraunt.
