Do not honor COUPONS – Not only does their service and food suck, but they do not honor the coupons listed on their website. The person at the counter refused to take off the 15% discount for take-out. According to him, if you do a buffet "take-out," the coupon does not apply. The coupon had no such clause. And then he had the audacity to say, "for a pound of food, you want a 15% discount. "ha ha! he was actually disgusted by the fact that i was trying to save money. lol!
Please people, go to a place where they treat you well and give you good food. Food is frankly the worst indian food i have every tasted.
Avoid! – This place is painfully slow, very small portions, and overpriced food! The service horrible and the food is really boring!
Good Food - Bad Service – My family and I hit the Sunday buffet. The food was good although I'm not a huge Indian food fan. Wife liked it but she doesn't think we'll ever go back.
Service was poor - got some crabby old timer who was pissed I had a groupon and didn't check in once to ask about drinks, etc.
I'd say check it out at least once.
Dangerously Good!!!!!!! A+ – Best Indian food in town, maybe in Minnesota. Try the Nav Rattan Korma- vegetarian. It's amazing!!! I've been going here for years and love it so much. It's family owned and operated, so I like that more than a franchised restaurant. Have to say not the best table service I've ever had, but the food makes up for it undoubtedly. What they lack in speed they make up for in charm. Highly recommend!
Great Food, Great Prices – People have commented on the Prices being a little high here, but the quality is excellent. Think of it as PF Chang's vs Panda Express. Similair cuisine, but much better ingredients.
Best Blend of Indian & Srilankan Food – We visit Sambol almost weekly for dinners. Food is a blend of Indian & Srilankan which is awesome. Gothamba Roti, Kothu Roti, Appam which are available only in this restaurant not in others. Service is also good compared to other Indian restaurants in Minneapolis. I feel it's bit pricy compared to other restaurants for certain items like Spring Dosa that's the only con. I've taken friends from North India for a party and everyone seemed to be impressed with food's taste too. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who visits / dwells in Minneapolis.
The food @ Sambol is very good. – Sambol is a very good place to eat. I really like the indian decorations and the food is great. They have these delicious dishes that i really enjoy . Me and my family go out there even though we live really far away, but it's worth the car ride. it's located in a good place, where anyone can go visit. many people complain about the service, I'm sorry to say to those people, but the service has always been great to me, maybe it was that one day that you probably had bad luck, but if you worked at a restaurant and the waiter made a mistake, it happens, everyone does! Maybe you should start working in restaurants and SEE it for yourself!! overall the restaurant is GREAT! The FOOD is authentic, had never tried this food, until my dad recommended to go out there and give it a try. And he was right it worked!! We have no complains about anything. We really enjoy it a lot. many times we've visited and there was 0 times where we got a bad service, Thank you for making this restaurant the best!!!
About the food, YUMMY!! The chicken dishes are delicious! The drinks are SWEEEET and good tasting!
i really recommend you to visit SAMBOL Restaurant! you'll really enjoy it a lot! Visit with your family, friends, or even your sweetheart, you'll like th environment and the clean atmosphere.
BEST INDIAN FOOD – This restaurant beats Taste of India and Great India and is the best restaurant for Indian cuisine in Minnesota. You can't find anything as good as this in the midwest. The spices are authentic and everything tastes homemade and fresh. Would go there everyday if I could.
Worst Service in the Twin Cities – Good, not great food
Atmosphere is slightly better than a typical strip mall restaurant
My wife and I have been here twice.
First visit. Our food came which looked wrong and we pointed out to the waiter, he replied that we were wrong, so we thought, it looks good lets eat. As we took a couple bites we verified that indeed the food was not what we ordered. Again we pointed this out to the waiter, to which he looked confused and had nothing to say. The wrong food was good and we were not sure the correct order was being resolved so we starting eating this food. When we were almost done, 30minutes later, our actual food shows up. So we now have a table full of food. And the couple next to us who have not received there food, yet they were there when we were seated, finally get the attention of the waiter about why they have not gotten their food. As they were naming their dishes, b/c the waiter had misplaced the tickets. We realized that we received their food and our food and even though we called our waiters attention to the mistake he was still too incompetent to correct it.
The second visit. Were seated at 7pm on Friday night, ordered about 5 minutes after we were seated. The food finally arrived 1 hour later, a little after 8. Again the food was very good. Once we had finished we could not get the attention of the waiter and ask for the ticket a couple of times. It never came after 20 to 30 minutes. So we walked out.
We will never go back and I would recommend anyone to possibly just order the food to go and pick it up.
It is too bad the service is so bad b/c again the food is solid.
My favorite – I enjoyed the atmosphere, the service, and it was the best indian food I've had in the twin cities. I try to save it for special occasions otherwise, I'd gain a ton of weight - everything is so good.
