Authentic South Indian style..Loved the food, ambiance and especially the people who served us. Will definitely recommend it to all my South Indian friends.
My first five star rating goes to this place, ohh the abundance of good food...the place needs works with interior design but who care lol, the food is to die for.
Went here for the first time tonight and was blown away. My mother and I have both lived in India and this is the most authentic flavorful India food I have found in the TwinCities!
Awesome banana leaf lunch you can get in twin cities
Outstanding food and service. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.
This is an Indian Eatery whose speciality is they serve food on a banana leaf which is hygienic as well as traditional. The atmosphere, food and service were o.k but can be improved with a little more professional approach and finesse. More...
Delicious authentic food!
This restaurant is my first choice restaurant. Of all restaurants I know I love it most. I always suggests to my friends to go to visit this restaurant. when I want to go to a decent lunch, this place comes straightaway to my head. fresh and all sorts of food and a large menu.generous staff, and good atmosphere. Also, the price is decent. I sent my friends to this restaurant with great pleasure. More...

One of the few authentic Indian cuisine based restaurant in the Twin Cities area, serving from both the flavors of South and Northern styles of cooking. Respecting the original tastes of the dishes from their respective origins, chef has done real justice to the dishes. Most recommended is their "Banana Leaf" lunch where the experience is complete. Have seen this types of restaurants in other cities with a huge Indian population like Dallas, DC, Jersey & SFO. First of its kind in Twin Cities and truly a good one. A must try is their Goat Curry with the lunch buffet and also a special order of the Chennai Chilli Chicken. Buttermilk was awesome too. Overall worth for every single cent spent :) More...
I am vegetarian and always was on a hunt for a spicy Birayani, I went to this place based on my Friends recommendation. Decent Ambience with friendly Staff greeting a Warm Welcome" Ordered Veg biryani spicy and my friend ordered Chicken Biryani. Food arrived on table with in 15 mins Approximately. The Biryani was hot, fresh and delivered with nice presentation. It's the best spicy vegetarian biryani I had in entire United States" Indian Masala was a quite Surprising for me and my friends with it's amazing biryani and flavours..Thank you Indian Masala More...
Had a fantastic lunch buffet at Indian Masala. The food was great, with lots of different options, both vegetarian and meat. The server was excellent and very friendly. Great experience. Highly recommend. More...
So far my fav for Indian food around here. Want on a Monday expecting to order my fav chicken tikka Masala. Found out they don't serve menu during lunch because it's slow and instead have buffet. I ended up trying everything on the buffet. I liked all but two items (personal taste of course). But all the food was so amazing. Went back up 3.5 times. They also had delicious fruit dessert. Price was good at $12 a person (pay that much just for a single dish normally). P. S. The chicken tikka Masala was incredible and way better than last place I went on grand Ave. More...
The food here is good and is close to authentic indian cuisine. Both North Indian and South Indian options here are pretty good. The chef here is very good when it comes to taking special requests - whether it is preparing Jain food or food at a certain spice level. Overall, I definitely recommend this place and it is much better than other indian restaurants I have been to in the twin cities. More...
Food was fantastic. So far best Indian restaurant. Thank you!
Amazing food and 5-star service. Truly feels like home, dining here
Food was delicious
South Indian food was great
I live next door and eat here almost weekly - Incredible hearty, rich and spicy food. Every style of curry is incredible and unique, and a lot of them are pretty much super food, diet-wise. Fantastic appetizers; the ingredients are always incredibly fresh (namely the lamb) and the sauces, chutneys and sides are always worth ordering.Come for authenticity and a quiet environment and come back for the ever-evolving buffet! More...
Wonderful experience ..!!!! ..The food n d leaf style lunch meals reminded me of the South India...
Been to Indian Masala multiple times and the food has always been FABULOUS. The chef does a superb job of changing the menu periodically and the taste is always great for all of the items. Fully worth visiting for the food.
The go to place for south indian meals. Loved the experience. Highlight was kootu and brinjal curry
If you want to eat South Indian food but don’t want to drop a couple thousand dollars for airfare, then come here. The decor is a bit rough, but the foods spiciness are more robust than some other Indian restaurants we have visited. We came during the week day buffet, had a nice assortment of vegetarian and meat dishes, great chutneys, and nan & papadums for bread. Give it a try! More...
This place is great! The food is always delicious at this restaurant with exceptional customer service. Me & gf always enjoy eating here .. I’ll definitely visit back soon. Thanks for the quality of your food. More...
Very authentic South & North Indian food. We ordered Dosa and the chutneys was amazing. Naan basket and vegetable Chettinad was a delight. They have Hyderabadi Dum Biryani too. This place is not just another Indian place which you will find in any other street corner. Very authentic at nominal price More...
Love this place! Food is amazing!
Food is really tasty and authentic. Staff is friendly and the place is not very crowded.
Excellent place to try Indian foods ...We may get South Indian Parotta too many times though it’s not on menu ...Try it out and surely you will like the food there
Best Chicken Tikka Masala in the Twin Cities. So flavorful. Perfect spice level. Endless rice supplied for free. My wife loves the Bombay Chicken Korma. Also, the pesto naan is to-die-for. The service is very friendly. The courteous young man always remembers our order (we visit often). Take advantage of the Groupon deal and the spread the word! More...
Great food! Very authentic South Indian food. Amazing service. Highly recommend.
Food was excellent ! Perfect home food outside home .
This place is amazing! The food is served in a traditional way - on a banana leaf where all the food is served right at your table. The unlimited meals is good. But I was not satisfied with the lunch combo as the quantity was not sufficient. It was not clear if that was unlimited too. The service was a tad bit slow but all of those working there seemed to be very responsive. They can try to look into order of the food served- as we got the boiled egg when we were almost done. We weren’t sure what was coming and what was in store for us. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to display the menu ( the items) for that day which comes along with the unlimited meals. Apart from that, the taste was so good that you couldn’t help but keep eating more. Will keep coming to this place! More...
Very unique south Indian restaurant. I went there for a lunch buffet. The food is served traditionally by severs who come to the table. This is the way food is served in eateries in the state of Tamil Nadu in India. The food was very nice. Rice, papad, south Indian curries, roti and bhaji. I met the owner who was to my surprise from Delhi (northern India) I believe this unique concept was a contribution from her manager who hails from Tamil Nadu. The servers, mostly from the country of Nepal, were very attentive and polite. "More' which is south Indian lassi was very good, served before meal. The water was served in sealed bottles. Altoghter, an interesting experience, very different from any other Indian restaurant I have visited in US. More...
Food was EXCELLENT !!!! Best Indian food in the Twin Cities. Chef is consistently excellent
If you like spicy foods, this is the place for you!! This place has three different spice levels (low, medium, high). We had Lamb Biryani (medium), Lamb Curry (medium), Goat Sukka (high), and Shrimp pepper fry (medium). All of the items had distinct aroma and taste to them. Every item came accompanied with rice so we didn't have to order extra. There are some food items (Pomfret for exapmle) that are only available on the weekend. Also, we wanted to order some items that weren't available! About the environment, It was really quiet when we went there, the ambient was decent, and some Indian music was playing. It was a good experience! More...
Original home made cuisine from India. Very tasty.
Great lunch buffet.
The food was very tasty and reasonably priced.
Rating 4 is far taste. Taste is amazing. Especially Fish curry awesome and mutton curry excellent. People are very nice. But lot of things you need to consider before planning this. Lunch – buffet. You cannot go take food in your plate. They will serve in your place unlimited. One side it is good because food will not be waste. Other negative side, you have to wait and wait to get enough food. They use vessels very small to serve the food. We went with 4 members, we want to eat chicken and mutton pieces. So the first person get all pieces because vessels are very small. Even the spoon is small. Even in that vessel maximum they can have 10 pieces. So they have to go multiple round to get enough pieces. Sometimes they do not come your side, they will busy with others. Owner use to come and ask how is food. However you have to spend more time to get enough food. At the end you will defiantly consume the food very less than the food prize. Though taste is good, we will go only, our count is less than 2 people. If more try some other Indian restaurant If you want to eat unlimited non veg items or going with larger group, this is not the right place for you guys. However my recommendation at least one time, everyone should give try this for the food taste. More...
Had வாழை இலை விருந்து (meal served on banana leaf) , South Indian traditional way including eating with bare fingers. It was nice to see others trying to eat with fingers. Awesome food and excellent effort. My family enjoyed it. Thanks to the management for introducing the tradition in the Minneapolis. More...
Shantez K Smith
It is very nice inside and smells so yammy. Serive was fast and people were very welcoming.
Awesome food. I strongly recommend this place for everyone who is looking for delicious indian food in minneapolis.
Great food and great people!!
Authentic and Delicious food, great hospitality, definitely affordable. Highly recommend
Food is delicious & authentic.... Worthy
Only a very few Indian restaurants serve food on banana leaves, definitely 'vaazhai ilai virundhu' (all you can eat) is the best authentic tamil food in the town.
Sri Ram M
Best Indian food in town!!
Great tasting food, with a good size quantity! Our go-to place for weeknights!
Great food and they have a lot of vegan options!
Excellent naan. Entrees are just larger enough to share.
Tastiest Indian food served in authentic Indian style!!!!
easter raj solomon
The food is so tasty and so good.Don't miss .
My mom and I have been coming to this restaurant every time we crave a good meal. We came here for my birthday dinner, my graduation dinner, and celebrated many other memories. The food is always top notch and Chef Prakash makes the best rava masala dosas! More...
This is by far one of the best Indian restaurant I've had in MN. The flavors are spot on and taste amazing. Service was great and very welcoming. Our sever really took the time to explain the fish we were interested in. We will be going to this location again in the very near future. This is our new spot and let's just say we will not go back to our previous spot due to the authenticity and flavors at Indian Masala, 5 stars bursting with flavors! More...
Today we had the best dosas In town after ages. Highly recommend to people to come here. Thanks to Mr. Prakash (the Dosa chef from kanyakumari) who made our wait worthy every single penny. This will be our favorite dosa spot. I won’t miss Chennai dosas anymore. Thanks to Prakash again. More...
Worth the extra wait that we had on a Friday when we were there at about 9.10 PM for just dosas..trust me Prakash the guy from Kanyakumari down south india makes the best dosas I ever had in last 6 years in town . The perfect diss you can get by far the best ..this will be our favorite dosa joint now going forward . Try this place before you go anywhere else I would Say you his for sure .. also try their Kadai paneer by chef Dev who is also an awesomeChef from Punjab who brings immense flavors . Will be there again . And guess what for the long wait for dosas they didn’t charge us for extra ghee and we also got complimentary mango lassis now that’s customer obsession I guess who want to makeSure the customers leaves happy and do come back again .. which I will More...
Great place for authentic Indian food
The weekend meal on banana leaf is delicious. An unique experience of having an authentic south indian meal. Menu differs slightly each week. I would highly recommend it.
The food was really good and need to improve the service. Highly recommend for good food.
Good food great coffee
Tasty Indian restaurant, Roti was awesome
Food is delicious and service is warm and welcoming. Best part is it serves Jain food, though Menu might not mention, but Chefs( esp Dave ) here are so accommodating, well they prepare anything u ask for in Jain..they take extra efforts towards ask of customer. Love this place.. More...
This is a great place for authentic Indian food.I really love the way they served. Staff were so polite and received us very well.Appreciate your service guys We tried Non veg Thali on banana leafYou get 3 veg curries, 3 non-veg curries, pickle, papad, appetizer, veg biryani, white rice, sambar, raaaa, kolumbu, desert OMG that was a crazy menu.All the items were really good and perfect spice.I definitely recommend you guys to try this for sure. That’s a nice homely felling after so long. Lila a break from regular buffet and step into traditional Indian kind of buffet.Don’t miss it!! More...
Great food and great service . Love to go back again
Great experience of traditional sadya in mn. The veg options were better than non veg ones. Service is a bit lackluster apart from everything else is amazing . Definitely worth visiting
I was there and the food was very good. The price was decent with lots of items and definitely I recommend.
We frequent the Indian Masala restaurant, and absolutely love the food. The buffet has a wide spread for both veg and non-veg menu. The food tastes great and they maintain the aunthenticity of the dishes, true to its origins. The latest addition is the Vaazhai ilai saapadu and it tasted great as well. The menu again was aunthentic and tasted great. More...
I have visited almost every Indian restaurant in twin cities and without a doubt, Indian Masala is the best Indian restaurant in MSP. I have been there many times and every time the chef (Dev from Haryana, India) impresses me with awesome food. I am a vegetarian and all the dishes here are very different in taste than other restaurants. Following are few of my favorite dishes in this restaurant and you must try: Paneer Harabhara, Gobi Manchurian, Crispy Chilly Babycorn (on request), Matar Paneer, Malai Kofta, Kadai Paneer, Dal Tadka.Once I went there with one "Jaini" friend (who doesn’t eat Onion/Garlic), I requested if he can make at least one curry without Onion/Garlic. Dev (the chef) prepared all the food without Onion/Garlic and it was still so delicious. More...
Good Indian food, consistent most of the times.
We’re South Indians who love our dosa and I have to say this place serves just wonderful dosas. The dosas were so good that my two-year old crushed them all by herself, with little to no feeding support from us. We will surely come back soon!
Nice Indian restaurant
The best Indian food in twin cities.
This is a great place to get Indian food in the TC area. There are tons of choices and it's very authentic.
Vaazhai ilai saapadu was amazing! Fresh buttermilk and jilebi are today's highlight!
Best Indian Food in Twin cities

Went for their lunch buffet .. to my surprise they served in plantain leaf . I felt so happy n it’s a wonderful experience .. will be back with my family soon .. best food ever More...
The restaurant changed for good. The dosa was crisper. The chai was the best we had in an Indian restaurant. And the banana leaf made the whole experience even more homely . Will be looking forward to banana leaf thali experience the coming weekend . Highly recommend it! More...
I ordered from DoorDash and I definitely wasn’t disappointed. They chicken was seasoned well and very moist. I usually order from the other Indian restaurant near by but from now on this is going to be my first choice. The food is amazingly delicious and you will definitely not be disappointed. More...
Great Indian buffet stuff usually don't see everywhere food was awesome staff was awesome
Had their special Vazhai Ilai Virundhu on the weekend. Basically it is a buffet where their servers walk around to the tables offering the items, and spoon it onto our tray covered in banana leaves. Some of the standout dishes were the chicken curry and the cabbage/ dish, along with the roti. My wife stuck to the vegetarian options and also enjoyed it, but there was no exceptionally hearty veggie main with paneer or chickpeas or something along those lines. Would definitely go back. More...
Awesome Weekend Buffet! I was here last Sunday afternoon and their buffet was unique. They serve the food you like and how much you like. The food varieties tasted awesome here. It gives you a chance to eat different regional foods in India at single time. If you are looking for best Indian Buffer, definitely try this. And oh yeah, the starter serving individual was very responsive and very beautiful too. More...
The food was awesome. The new buffet has lots of delicious and tasty indian food. Its a must visit place in weekends. I am also impressed by their service. Will visit it more often. Goat curry and carrot pudding was my fav. Also the buttermilk just add more to ur taste. More...
Vijayakumar H K
Good Indian food
Nice concept of Vaazhai elai virundhu ( Lunch on a plantain leaf), famous in South India. Felt like lunching in India ... Nice service too !!
We went for the traditional Banana leaf thali today... very good food... hospitality was also good... would recommend... worth trying
The chef here in Indian masala, genuinely takes effort to make different variety of Jain curries and food. Jain food served here is the best in Minneapolis.
We had plantain leaf lunch buffet and it was served in traditional Indian style. Food is super tasty and loved it!!!
It was amazing
Great food. Wonderful community minded establishment who donate to great causes.
This place is a gem. Great food. Great service. The building may not look like much from the outside, but inside it's rather charming. Would recommend.
Good food and excellent service. Highly recommend.
Good quality food in the buffet and excellent service.
Good food with a friendly staff. Probably best on east side of cities?
We enjoy the flavors here better than other Indian restaurants and the buffet has many different dishes to try.
The best Indian food in MN. I drive 50 mins just to eat at my fav Indian restaurant. Service is warm, welcoming, and the staff are all so wonderful. Everyone is incredibly hospitable - the cooks and the owner shows immense interest in the satisfaction of their customers. Their food is cooked with so much love - you can taste it :) Best place in town. More...
Wonderful food, good service.
My experience at Indian Masala was incredibly positive and assured me that this is a restaurant that I will be visiting many times again in the future.The staff were very friendly and welcoming right from the moment I entered, greeting me and offering a seat as soon as I arrived but not rushing me in any way.I had been waiting for colleagues, so I waited and observed, taking in the very peaceful entrance with a fish tank and sofa. As soon as my colleagues arrived, we seated and began fishing up from their lunch buffet.The lunch buffet was beautifully arranged and filled with a variety of dishes for all appetites, from various soups to rice and masalas, all with a variety of either vegetables or chicken.Our party had various food preferences, from vegetarian to gluten intolerance, and all were accommodated and enjoyed their meal greatly.The desserts were absolutely delicious, with a variety of chutneys, rice pudding, ride milk, and more.Aside from the food, our interactions with the staff were always very friendly, above and beyond in some cases. We met some of the nicest and most kind people I have known in some time, and build relationships that extend beyond the restaurant.I highly recommend Indian Masala to anyone. It is worth a visit for the excellent food, atmosphere, and company. More...
I have visited Indian Masala today with my family and the buffet was very delicious with lots of varieties. I recommend this restaurant for good food.
Stopped in for dinner. Food was very good and reasonably priced. Ordered a Tandoori chicken . It was so tasty and well seasoned. Worth place to visit.
I went to this place for buffet during weekend with my friends. They had great flavors for the food and great staff. Would go back again.
The food was absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation. The best Indian restaurant ever I visited. I highly recommend this restaurant for Good Indian food.
OMG! The South Indian dishes are amazing! As a South Indian I always crave for good idly-vada-sambhar or pongal. The chef knows his/her thing very well! It comes through in the food! This restaurant has made best idlys by far in the states! I tried Punjabi dal thadka, it has wonderful flavors, simple and comforting! More...
Really good food and good customer service.
My only issue with this place because the food is amazing, is their bathrooms the ceiling is coming of do to water and mold damage, it's a very repulsive bathroom. However, the food and customer service is just amazing and great, the bathroom killed it for both me and my husband More...
Best indian restaurant in the town, delicious food and fantastic atmosphere what a time i had having an indian food. Please do visit
Best indian place in town
Wow amazing food and great service best dosa I ever had in my life. I had an amazing experience going here , i recommend everyone to go here once
Delicious food, good service
I have been to this restaurant three times and never disappointed once. All my visits food were great in taste. I have never tested such veg dishes any where. On my last visit we met chef after we done with our dinner and he is so passionate about what he is doing. Great Indian restaurant and great food I have ever tasted in my life. More...
Good place for Indian food
From past 1 month food is very good
Goat biryani is so good
First time there and definitely going back. Everything we tried on the lunch buffet was delicious, can't wait to go for dinner sometime soon.
The best and most authentic Indian cuisine selections I have ever had. I love to try something new every time. I always recommend my friends to visit this local business. The food is so tantalizing. Thank you !! More...
Great South Indian food
Minneapolis Fox Den
Best Sosa ever. Large, crispy, potato filling. Butter chicken was great too.
Yummy buffet and great service. Worth the visit.
The food is delicious. Don't let the look of the building fool you there is some good food hiding in here. What we would call a diner or dive.
All you need to know is that the foods good. No cap.
One of the best Indian restaurants. We like coming here all the time because there is not a single time when we were disappointed with the quality of food. Their Goat Biryani, Hot and Sour Chicken soup, Chicken lollypops are grade one. Curries have right blend of spices and mouth watering. Oh and how can I forget one of the best Chicken Dosas, I have ever had. More...
Juan Camilo Vargas
The best Indian food in town by far. Highly recommend the chicken tandoori, lamb saag, and chicken vindaloo. The service is also excellent, very friendly staff and they even stayed past the closing time for us! Must try it.
Good food average prices $$$
I had the food for one week. The food quality is excellent and especially the chicken briyani is amazing
Great food, great service. One of our favorite places in the area. Have never had anything bad and the servers are always helpful if you ask for suggestions.
Great food good response time for drinks.
Superb service and excellent food... lots of options for vegetarian food...
The best north indian food in minnesotta...loved it
Awesome Indian restaurant.This place is totally remodeled and looks great.They serve delicious Indian food.The restaurant is clean and tidy.when I entered to this place it was little busy in the dinner.but food was fabulous .. I will be back with my friends ... More...
Great food. Great service. My wife and I ordered our dishes a little bit spicy but that was on us. The Taj Mahal beer was good for a lager.
Amazing food, I cannot wait to go back!
Delicious food, very nice staff!
Authentic cuisine nice people
Great lunch Buffet! Lots of good dishes, both vegetarian and with chicken. Some spicy and many mild. Would gladly go again.
Good food, but not the greatest atmosphere. However, the food does make it worth it.
The tikka masala and garlic naan are delicious!
I love the lunch buffet here! The food is always yummy and so flavorful. The price of the buffet is amazing at less than $12 a person.
This is a great place to eat, always a large selection of flavorful and delicious food, and the atmosphere is good too. There is a lot of parking, and they can accommodate larger gatherings. The only reason I gave a four instead of a five is the service...while it is efficient, and cordial, a smile and some camaraderie can go a long way in a restaurant. I still love it though, and go often! More...
Authentic Indian food
I like this place because the staff are friendly and they have dosa which is my favorite food. The only thing I give it 4 start the costumers service is very slow and the manu doesn’t have pictures. I like the maun that have pictures because I am not familiar with India food so I think pictures maun is better for people who are not familiar Indian food. I will go back again because the staff are very nice and don’t rush us. More...
Everything on the menu is delicious. Only gripe is service is a bit hit or miss...they don't have enough wait staff to support the large size of restaurant. Still worth the yummy food though.
The food was delicious.
Rava masala is excellent
Very tasty south Indian foods
I've lost count on how many times I've passed by this place but in my 5years of living in Woodbury , i finally came in! I was with a friend getting dinner here and it was a marvelous experience.My friend ordered the chicken tikka masala with naan and i ordered the lamb biryani. The order came fairly quickly and i was majorly satisfied!!! The lamb was cooked exceptionally and the biryani had so much flavor it was almost intoxicating plus they gave me a heaping amount of rice!!! So glad i had extra to take home, it was too good not to take it to go. (Personally, i'd slap anyone who dares to waste rice on my watch)My friend's chicken tikka masala dish tasted so damn good. The chicken was tender and hot and the VISCOSITY of the soup was most excellent! (On a side note, have any of you readers had chef boyardee ravioli and heated it with a slice of kraft cheese?.... Anyway..lol thats what the soup kinda tasted like) the naan with the soup was a marriage of holiness.One thing i guess i would criticise is that the mango lassi i ordered wasnt as cold as i hoped it would be, but honestly it was delectable af and quenched my mango thirst.One more thing is that our entire dinner cost only like $30 and i had leftovers! That's definitely a 5 star yelp review all across the board for me. More...
Good food and good staff n
obula arjun vemana
Excellent food.Awesome service great ambience
To Sudha Bhaskara, I really don't get words to describe you. I'm sure you have not observed me but I'm one of the persons sitting behind you guys while you were paying the bill. I noticed something creepy happening hence I had listened to the whole crap that you did. How could you write a review that the food is not hygienic.? I believe you mention the waitress that its not your first time to visit this restaurant. If you felt that the food is not hygienic why did you come the next time? Please do not misguide the customers. You being an Indian you have to support your brother/sister Indians, despite I observed that you guys were really demanding that poor waitress. Please don't show cheap Indian mentality. I'm a regular customer. I have been there many times, I know how they are and how they treat people. And lastly I have to say she was not rude to the before customers, It was you to whom she said don't come when your boyfriend or your husband said for 10th or 15th time that we have many options to got to.. More...
Mohammed Al Mulhim
They provide the best Indian food in the cities.
Great service and great pesto naam!
Good food options,great taste
Tasty and spicy
Absolutely love this place the food is some of the best Indian I have had. The only downside is the decor, but I can get over it.
Great food...true Indian cuisine.
Best Indian food I've had in a long time!!
Food was excellent, service was very slow. Went on a Sunday evening, very few tables occupied, still took 10 minutes to get service, saw other diners walk out, because of the poor service.
Food was great and the service is acceptable. The place can use a through cleaning.
Such amazing food! Highly recommended buffet style authentic Indian cuisine!
The most awesome indian food in twin cities
Food was really good..dosa was one of the dishes, but can't remember what else. Atmosphere was a little blah, and I my seat was flimsy, but wouldn't hold me back from going again.
$11 lunch buffet with reasonable vegetarian options. Food isn't very spicy, but the sambar is decent and the vada is actually very good.
They serves tasty food but limited variety
The food and service were outstanding. Best we have had in the area.
Always love coming here for lunch, great room temp water. Staff is always friendly and the food is great
My favorite Indian restaurant in the Twin Cities , their Saag and combination platter are out of this world!
Great place, make a reservation for larger groups.
Delicious. Service was good and paced appropriately; didn't rush you like some chains do.
We live in Woodbury, and this is one of the places that we go to.....as the matter of fact, we went there again today for lunch. I like the variety of food...unfortunately, some of them were cold....but that did not take away from the flavor. If you are into Indian food....you should give this a shot. More...
The food was delicious but the need more help. We had to wait 20 minutes just for 2 to go containers
Great Indian food, quick and friendly service.
We stopped by after a trip to Afton, it was on the way home in St Paul and we were in the mood for Indian food. This was a good choice. The Food was very good, service was very friendly. I would recommend it. I kinda wish it was closer to my place as I'd stop in more. From the outside it doesn't look the most appealing. Décor on inside isn't amazing either but really that doesn't matter as much as the food and the service which I would say 'Very Good' 555 Chicken was good n spicy, Curry was good, meat was good, Naan was awesome, Mango Lassi was on point ;) - Thanks More...
Yummy food.. !!!
Excellent, excellent, excellent food. Don't judge a book or a restaurant by it's cover!
Current iteration of this location has fantastic food.
Shiv Bhatia - Yuwa
Good place to go for mutton dishes
Great lunch buffet and very friendly staff.
Great tasting food....!
Yummy, spicy, vegetarian, GF, & non-veg-GF Indian food. Lunch time buffet is wonderful, as are their mango lassies.
Lunch buffet was very tasty. Decent selection. Staff was kind.
Never disappointed with the lunch buffet.
My introduction to Indian food. In my humble opinion, they knocked it out of the ball park.
Best hyderabadi biryani
The service was amazing. You can tell the people here care about their guests.
Great lunch buffet
Good south indian food.
Food was fresh and aromatic, a delightful change. Friendly service.
One of the best Indian restaurants I've been to!
Tikki chaat was good. Medu wada was uncooked from within. Dosas were not great bt ok. Would go there when i m really desperate for indian food. I would have given 3 stars bt added one more to the rating because they didnt charge us for medu wada admitting their mistake. More...
Love the food.
Good food, loved the vegan friendly options
Amazing lunch buffet! Go for lunch!
Tasty Indian food. Friendly waiters...
The Gobi Manchuria was excellent I asked for it hot it came medium but spice level is relative. The garlic naan was good Jen was a little disappointed in her appetizer plate. It was dry, but the accompanying sauces were good. We always are comparing Indian restaurants to Tandoor in Bloomington and the former Udupi. More...
Visiting town, enjoyed the meal so much came back again before I left.
Awesome... Indian food..
Fabulous food, splendid service!!Love the naan bread.
Great Indian food.
The best best goat that I've ever eaten.
Really good, especially the desserts. The outside is unassuming but the interior has a nice Indian feeling atmosphere. Around $12-15 per plate.
Nice, culturally Indian food (compared to home made and my trip to Mumbai) but you have a choice of less (Americanized) or more spicy. My son and I both had lamb dishes and both loved them. Garlic naan also excellent. Looks like a hole in the wall from the outside, clean but plain on the inside. Reasonably priced. More...
Excellent lunch buffet. Great sampling of Indian dishes. Good value (~$11.00).
My son and I have never had Indian food prior to today, so we decided to try Indian Masala. We had the lunch buffet and it was good. I was surprised that it wasn't spicier, as I have always heard that Indian food runs on the hot side. More...
Amazing food, so much flavor. I’ve been there two times now, I’m never disappointed. Def a hole in the wall place that is worth it!
We went for lunch and did the buffet. The food was good. We also got the chai/ Indian tea, which we enjoyed.
We went in on a Tuesday evening. The food is flavorful, the spice and curry combination is wonderful. The ambience is nice and the traditional music is just right. The only knock is it seemed a little understaffed. Overall, we would definitely return. More...
Phenomenal taste. They leave some whole veggies in their buttery masala dishes (paneer Tikka masala, butter chicken, etc) like peppers. The tanginess is perfect and the spice level is also spot on for American pallettes (medium means medium). More...
By far the best Indian food around. I have tried 95% of the Indian restrauants in the Metro and this by far is the best!
Nice quiet and friendly place to dine. Authentic indian food. Food is delicious and would highly recommend this place to anyone willing to try something new.
The best and most authentic Indian cuisine selections I have ever had. I love to try something new every time. I always recommend my friends to visit this local business. The food is so tantalizing. Thank you !! More...
Taste of food is good so giving 5 stars, but service I will give 2 stars. They charge extra $8 for my 3 year old kid who hardly ate anything ie 3 morsels of food.So I don't think that was worth 8 dollars. If anyone planning to visit this place with kids please do an enquiry. More...
First time in, got recommended for lots of vegetarian options and we were not disappointed! Loved everything we ordered it was super delicious.
Amazing food and friendly staff! It was frigid when we went but the aromas and tasty meals were worth the trip! Best Indian food i've ever tasted and I have tried a few. You need to give this place a try. The naan, my goodness, perfect! More...
Probably the best Indian food I've had in the Twin Cities. Not the best I've ever had but it was super good.
We visited this place many times. Food is really delicious and tasty. Mainly they know how to make good Indian food.
Enough parking space and seating arrangement.
Do enjoy the perfect Dal Tadka and Paneer Kadhai.
Staff is good and helping however your order might take little longer to come to your table.
Since food is really good and tasty, I would recommend it with 5 stars. More...
Our family, friends and Church people often go to this amazing restaurant for 2years. Very tasty food. The owner is very generous and kind person.
Ate here for the first time and it definitely won't be the last. I had the Chicken Dosa and my husband had the Goat Khorma. The food was wonderful the staff was attentive and nice. More...
The food here is very good. (Very spicy, but very good.)
Great food larger than average selection
Delicious food. Buffet that dares to be a little bit spicy.
Absolutely impressive! The food was delicious and the service superb. I will recommend Indian Masala to friends and I plan to return here often.
Friendly service and food was tasty
Food is 5 stars, however they don't have enough staff and the decor needs serious attention. It's a shame because the food is awesome
Simply excellent authentic Indian food. They have a variety of dishes and styles, and many different kinds of curry and masala. The flavors are strong without being overpowering or pungent. More...
Excellent food and service.
The starters and biryani are good. Desserts need to be improved a bit. I ordered carrot halwa. expected it to be thick. But it was loose and watery. Service and ambience are good as well. More...
The food was excellent. Very nice service.
It's been through several owners the past three years but I think the latest owners finally have the right chemistry with this place. They offer a lunch buffet and normal menu items for dinner. I usually go for the buffet and they have great prices and delicious food. Their staple items (naan/chicken tiki masala) are great and their kheer is great! I highly recommend this to anyone who likes Indian food! More...
Great portions. Taste is supreme. Goat was tender, not too spicy. Hit the right spot.
Great Authentic Indian food! Dot not Feather! ;)
Excellent food at a good price. I have only eaten there for the lunch buffet, but the food is "Southern Indian", which oddly made me expect to hear them speak with a Texas twang for some reason, but I go there quite a bit and it's always been very tasty.
No real complaints for a lunch buffet. I can say it's one of the better sized one for the money in the area.
Great food! A unique, authentic experience. Reasonable prices. I will definitely be returning to Indian Masala.
Good buffet. We visited for a private function held at the place. Food was very nice.
Food is awesome! The Chicken Dosa is a new obsession! Goat Vindaloo was top notch. If you're a foodie, get past the settings. Best Indian food in the TC!
They are amazing. Simply the best don't go to the popular place in woodbury they are nice but this place is the best
Great taste goat curry and excellent desert options .. best is town ... once you visit you will keep on visiting
Serves a variety of fresh and spicy dishes on the buffet. One of the better Indian restaurants in the Eastern metro.
My wife and I have tried a dozen different indian restaurants in preparation for our wedding. This place is exceptional in price, authenticity, and service. Can I get a 6th star?!
Amazing food. Amazing lunch buffet. Best Indian food in the area by a lot.
Delicious chicken masala and great service.
This is the best Indian food I've found in MN! I got the lunch buffet for take out, and everything was delicious. I recommend it to anyone who likes spicy and authentic curry and tika.
The food and environment is amazing, perfect for families or date night. They were very prompt with our needs and kept everything neat and clean. I will definitely return. Thank you so much! More...
Amazing food, very pleased with the food and service every time we visit. Great job
Near authentic Indian cuisine in this part of the world.. their specialty is the south Indian flavor ...
Love their chicken biryani
Nice ambience, good variety and decent spicy Indian food. If you go for lunch buffet, I would suggest Fridays since there is more selection even if you had to pay a couple more bucks. Goat biriyani and masala kozhi varutha curry (chicken) is my favorite combo. More...
I love this place. Nice people, VERY reasonable varied lunch buffet, and they serve legit southern Indian cuisine. Never had anyone say a bad word about this place. Lots of gluten free, vegetarian and vegan choices as well! More...
First tme there. Some of the best authentic Indian food I've had recently. Large and varied lunch buffet, about $13.
The outside doesn't look like much but the inside is nice. I was there for dinner and got a Goat Vibdaloo, tandoori chicken and palak paneer. They were all super delicious! Probably one of the best Indian meal I have ad outside out India. The place was pretty big but not too many patrons. Although they had a lot of take out orders. More...
Great Indian food, and they greet us cheerily when we come. Even gave us some complimentary desserts the last time we visited.

Edit: Restaurant called me and explained that they provided me chicken 555 instead of 65.. at least I know I don't have to try 555 anymore.. changed stars for caring about customer feedback.. Original post: They make chicken 65 for dinner time from the left over tandoori chicken from the afternoon?!?!? We pay to eat good food not to optimize ur cost.. More...
Good Indian food.
The food was incredible, and the service was great! I would definitely go there again, and recommend it to others.
Good food. Decent choices for both veg and non veg. Good service but it's different, probably a cultural thing. I eat here 3-5 times a year and I'm never disappointed
Good food service is good authentic south Indian food

Good For Saturday Buffet
Amazing buffet style Indian food. Great and friendly service, make sure you call ahead for a table!
Authentic and fresh Indian food
Everything I've ever tasted here has been extremely delicious every time. Highly recommended.
Great buffet selection because I love lamb and they usually have one goat/lamb option. I also like spicy Indian food and they have a few spicy dishes also. Clean and comfortable atmosphere.

Wonderful Indian food! Highly recommend!
All 6 of us loved our meals. 4 vegans, 2 non-vegans.
The service was quick. We ordered our food around 8pm. We only waited a few minutes for the appetizers. Our vegan entrees were good. We requested a vegan sauce for our appetizers. The waitress brought us two kinds of sauce. The tamarind sauce was sweet. The other sauce was coconut chutney. It was light green. We finished all of our food. I'd be happy to recommend this place to my friends, locals and tourists. More...
Food is authentic. Great selection of appetizers. Restrooms are in poor condition though.
Good food, variety and weekends buffet is too good for the price
The food is amazing!! They have SUPERB naan, and we have yet to find a dish that we don't like even when we randomly pick something we've never heard of.Occasionally the wait staff can be a bit absent so knocked a star off for that. It's still the only place we go to Indian food! More...
Service was very polite and helpful, food was excellent!
Fantastic food! Best Indian restaurant around with great selection and moderate prices. Groupon was well worth it. Like others have said, service is confusing. They appeared to be extremely understaffed and we had 3 different people who waited on us. Last 15 minutes we waited until we had to stand up by the front to get anyone to notice us. But the food made up for all this...seriously it's that good. Try the Lamb Korma! More...
One of the best and most consistent of all right now around..
Excellent Indian food, pleasant servers; I recommend the Tandoori Platter and the bhindi.
Lunch buffet is tasty and fresh, and perfect for a weekday lunch.Good variety in the buffet, and food is a little spicy, too, which is a welcome change from bland Indian food you'd normally find at a buffet.
Delicious Indian food at a reasonable price. We went for dinner and had chicken tikka masala and butter chicken. Both fantastic. The naan is also great.
Amazing place. Food was great so was service
I love this place. I go here all the time. The food is AMAZING!
Great food choices.
Best Lamb biryani I ever had in Minneapolis. $16.06 is the cost and the quantity is sufficient.
