We arrived for a quick (and rather late) lunch on a snowy day as we drove down to St. Paul for the weekend. We started out with a fish pakora - something we've never had before. Tilapia chunks fried in a batter! A bit on the salty side but the accompanying tamarind and mint sauce were both excellent. We followed this up with the Mali (although the correct spelling should be Malai) Kofta and some Peshwari Naan. Both were very good although the naan was a bit more generous with raisins than we were accustomed to. We opted for the "medium" level of spice, but felt that the food could be a little more spicy. The flavor was perfect on all dishes.All in all not a bad experience! Hope to return someday with some friends and family and try the vast number of dishes on the menu. More...
Wonderful food! Nice location, but bring some change to feed the on street parking meters.
Excellent food and excellent service as well
Excellent food! Great place for a date!
Delicious food, lots of vegetarian and gluten free options!
I thought this place was a jewlery store for years, ....well turns out it was quite a hidden gem for me.Chicken Masala is my go to with a side of Garlic Naan bread, and i am upset that i didnt say some of masala for left overs, i regret that i am moving out of town after finding this awesome little Indian restaurant a few blocks away.
Always delicious food and nice service

Didn't think I'd find Indian food in St. Cloud. It was a good find.
First time at Kohinoor. Never eaten this kind of food before. Very good. Served nice and hot. Will go again. Margirita shrimp.
Great food! Love the curry!
I was in town visiting friends, and this is their go-to restaurant. And for good reason! It was difficult to decide on a meal because several different items sounded fantastic. The food we did order was phenomenal. We each gave everyone a taste of what we ordered and I would have been excited to have any of it as my main dish. I will make it a point to go back every time I need a place to eat in St. Cloud. More...
Absolutely delicious food and great service! Adding to this after I first reviewed (about 2 years later): We went out here for dinner last night. My wife and I both ordered dishes with lamb, and when our food was brought, it was with chicken instead. Neither her or I realized this (because it was Delicious!) until the server came back shortly after and apologized and informed us of the mix-up. We insisted no problem, and were good with what he'd served us, but he had already had the kitchen restart what we ordered. So we ate what he served us (again, FANTASTIC), and then our original order was provide to us to go! So ultimately we got two meals free to bring home. This business seriously takes care of their customers. Please go and try them out! They are absolutely wonderful! More...
I was the first to review this place which is cool. My review still holds as it's excellent food done well with a good bar. They show international sports like cricket on TV which is fun to watch. But this my main update is this. If you ask they will go off menu and customize. I would suggest the Chana saag. Awesome. More...
Laid back atmosphere great service food and drinks
Yum. Bit pricey but worth it. Delicious masala and nan was great!
Delicious food, inviting decor and wonderful service. Dont miss it!
My wife and I have gone here several times now and have never been disappointed in the service or quality of food. Even on a very busy night everything was spot on.
Best Indian cuisine in St. Cloud. Great atmosphere, great service, great selection, and great flavor.
amazing food and excellent service
Amazing food. Amazing bartenders, and the owners from India are the best! You cannot go wrong at this place.
ALWAYS great food, quality service, and certainly a great location. This is our go-to for a healthy option that goes beyond the central MN “norm”.
It is delicious! It can be a bit spicy with their mild-medium-hot scale!

Very tasty! Repairing the water damage in the ceiling would be helpful.

Wow! After much suggestion from my mom, Executive Chef brother and 8 year old daughter, I finally tried, not only Kohinoor Bar & Grill for the first time, but Indian food for the first time! They have been here before, so they knew how good it was. I’m glad I finally ‘gave in’ - the food was amazing! My daughter started out with the kiwi iced tea and Lemon Chicken Soup - both were amazing! Then, our table of 4 all shared the Garlic Naan, Tandoori Wings, Chicken Balti and Shrimp Goan Curry. I was blown away at the portion of food served, the quality and the flavors. The service was outstanding, as well. Not once did we sit with an empty glass or beer, wine, tea or water. I will definitely be coming here again and let everyone else know how great it is! More...

This place has some awesome food. A must go to! Service was fantastic last night. I sure will be back when I visit St. Cloud again.
After my trip I was fortunate enough to have Memorial Day off. I drove my butt to St. Cloud to visit my mother and her friends. My mother was in town visiting so we all decided to go out for dinner. Her friends chose this Indian place. Apparently the owners of this place are the same family that owns Star of India in St. Cloud as well. We arrived and we didn't need reservations. It was a rainy day, so there weren't many people out and about. Our party consisted of 5 people. We started with 2 orders of Vegetable Samosas-6 total. For our entrees, Chuck is always down for ethnic food, he ordered the lamb sheesh kebabs with vegetables, Pat ordered the same thing but with rice. Jim doesn't like spicy things or Seafood, so he ordered the chicken tenders. Mom ordered the Tandoori Chicken with rice and I ordered the Chana Masala. We also collectively got 2 orders of Naan, 1 plain and 1 garlic. I was with a group of non-spicy lovin' people. I however, love spicy, it's always more flavorful, and just delicious! I asked for my meal to be spicy, medium/hot, everyone ordered mild. Sometimes I feel like who I'm with depends on if I get the spicy level I asked for. The Chana was delicious, however it was very bland, I felt I was missing out on a lot of the flavor. I had left overs and during my next meal I added hot sauce to it, to help bring out those flavors I was missing.The staff was nice, fast, and friendly. I don't often come to St. Cloud anymore, but if I did, and people wanted to go here again, I would go because I love Indian Food. I haven't had bad Indian yet (knock on wood), sometimes it just needs a little more hot sauce, but never bad. More...
My first experience at Kohinoor. I stopped here for lunch. Food is excellent, great flavor, tender bites of Chicken and just the right amount of heat to taste but not over power the dish. I ordered the Chicken Marsala, you'll be asked if you want mild, medium or hot. I went with medium. You'll definitely taste the heat and spice. My rice was pretty good, I did find some of my rice clumped together, but overall still good. My only knock is the price. With a beverage and meal it was nearly 20 dollars. A little high for a lunch meal, but the quality was good. More...
Great place to eat
Huge portions, full flavor
Food was excellent as well as the service. Definitely going back again.
Kohinoor is one of our favorite places to eat downtown. Its so nice to have something other than subs available. Not only is it interesting and different but the food is also REALLY GOOD! If you like or havent tried Indian food give this place a shot. More...
Our fav new stop in St Cloud! The methi curry is amazing. The service is great too. Try the samosas and garlic naan and order a flying horse to drink. So good! The flavors are amazing and I keep craving it and wanting to go back for more! More...
Great food and service! Haven't had a bad experience there yet. Always wonder why they aren't busier.
Kohinoor never fails to be delicious!!! Though my only complaint would be that I would like it to be more spicy when I say I want hot. My mother's food has always been spicy so I grew up having spice in my food until I came here to St. Cloud for college and every time my partner and I come here and I say I'd like it spicy it still just seems to have a slight medium kick to it, but as always still delicious. I would definitely recommend the Balti. I've had many other Curry's from their menu and this is by far my favorite More...
Our first time here. Everything was awesome. The staff was great, answered all of our questions with patience and grace. Their recommendations were spot on. They have a wonderful cocktail menu! This was my first experience with Indian food, and I'm now a fan. More...
Fantastic food! Service was excellent. The descriptions of the food were really helpful for someone who doesn't eat a lot of Indian food. Flavors were abundant and vegetarian options were available. Well worth a visit! More...
Great place, great food.
The Balti, get the Balti with lamb! Their naan is a must have, there's a garlic one that's good and a cheese one that's good.
Great owners, and better food
EXCELLENT food and warm atmosphere.
We love this place.
Best Indian food I’ve ever had in my life. The chicken saag was amazing and the paneer naan was delicious!!!!
Kohinoor was such an all around amazing experience! Never having tried authentic Indian food before, I was a bit apprehensive but to my surprise and with the guidance of our fantastic waiter, I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. We started out with their Aloo Tikki as an appetizer, for my main course, I had the Methi Chicken Curry with the Paneer Naan. My boyfriend had the Balti chicken curry and LOVED his meal as well. The full bar made ordering drinks easy, and delicious. We topped our meal off with their Gulab Jamun for dessert, which was also wonderful. I will be recommending to all our friends and family. Decently priced, nice intimate downtown vibes. Loved!!! More...
Excellent choices on the menu
Brought office out for lunch. Great service and excellent fresh food.
My favorite restaurant in St Cloud!
Surprisingly good Indian food in a pleasant atmosphere with good service.
Excellent food and service.
My wife and I always get the Chicken Masala with a double order of Paneer Naan. It's a fantastic place for a good meal and a drink.
We received excellent service. Flavorful and delicious food.
Stubby D Trucker
awesome food! Even better service! in one visit it skyrocketed to my favorite resturaunt
The whole family loves coming to this place!
Good North Indian food.. Had it during our road trip
The food was super amazing, very large portion of food, so go there very hungry. We were many people so ordered different things and we all shared the food. The place is great for food and drinks. Will definitely make it a place to go to again More...
Bartender was super nice
Some of the best Indian food I've had in the state
Awesome foods and servers...dishes just came out how is supposed to..... very cool environment...i really enjoy going there and u should also visit there if you really wanna try different food..i starting loving indian foods..!!
Best Indian food around! Paneer Balti is delicious
Limited selection, but tasty Indian fare, complimented by a well stocked bar, and nice atmosphere. Chaz, the server/bartender tonight made up a mean Long Island. Wednesday night gives student discounts, so for SCSU students or visiting athletes etc it might be a nice treat. More...
Love this place!
Great food, Good service. Atmosphere is still typical MN with neon beer signs.. (You would think this is a MN requirement)All in all one the top 5 places in St Cloud to eat good/healthy , not so pre-processed food. Far better than the other numerous fried bar food, burgers and brat or pizza places More...
Very good food, fast and friendly service, good value
Excellent food and service. Great lunch specials.
Fantastic food with a full bar and a great atmosphere. If you want some awesome Indian food, this is the place to go. Naan bread to die for.
SUCH good Indian food - the balti and masala curries especially. I didn't expect much from a place that's also a bar, but I was very surprised.
Great food and excellent service. Good lunch specials.
The Star of India offspring, downtown St Cloud.The best!!! Indian food in the USA!!!Try it, you'll love it.
I loved the balti chicken curry! The flavor was rich with spices, which made me very happy since it's been a while that there's spicey food around here. You have to try their mixed drinks, the dirty lassy to die for! Wish they had samosas too. Will definitely be back for curry and lassy's More...
Excellent service, Excellent food and tall beers!
I come here all the time, food is amazing! My favorite is the beef masala. Staff is very friendly
Inside feels like a weird karaoke bar mixed with a sports bar (tv’s), and cocktail lounge. That being said, the food is amazingly flavorful and the service was wonderful.
(Traducido por Google) ¡Lugar favorito!(Texto original)Favorite place!
Wonderful food, good service, nice atmosphere.
I was surprised at how much I loved the food! Great lunch specials.
Great food and drink options, full bar, authentic cuisine. Friendly servers, a little expensive but not unreasonable.
Nice place great food and atmosphere was chilled and relaxing.
Really good food. Not the Indian restaurant vibe but delicious food, nevertheless. Had the scallop curry dish, naan bread, and a mango lassi to go. I’ll definitely be back.
(Traducido por Google) Muy buena comida india. Servicio amigable. El ambiente no era lo que esperaba. Había música de los años 50 y el restaurante tenía un tipo de aspecto americano más antiguo(Texto original)Very good Indian food. Friendly service. The atmosphere wasn't what I was expecting. There was 50's music playing and the restaurant had an older American kind of look More...
We went right when it opened. Nice service, food excellent. I eat Indian food frequently
The food here is amazing! You get exactly what you pay for as far as authenticity and flavor goes.
Best food in town....thanks folks.
Best curry and naan in town. Hands down.
Very nice place. Food was great. Good service.
Absolutely the best restaurant in St. Cloud! Great food, friendly service, good atmosphere. My wife and I go as often as possible. Even my kids love it!
Love the food & service here!

Best place in town to get authentic Indian curry dishes
Very kind staff, great recommendations, and food was amazing. Will be back!
Great vegetarian fare, beautiful restaurant and friendly staff!
The food was great!
Love the food
The food and service is excellent. St. Cloud is plagued with microwaved, chain restaurants. Kohinoor is a refreshing change. I strongly urge you to give this place a try. More...
Great Indian food and good service.
We've basically been there once a week since we discovered it. Service is good and friendly, and the food is phenomenal! One of the best restaurants in town! More...
Delicious Indian food in a fun bar with lots of great drinks to choose from. I am so glad I found this place!
Hands down, the BEST Indian food I have ever had. Portions are huge! Come hungry! We had no idea what to order but left it up to our server. Delicious!
I loved this place and star India is amazing I would recommend going to both places
Have always walked past this place and never gone in- finally decided to try it out and the food was awesome! Service was excellent very attentive. My husband got kabobs and I ordered the lamb chops with the veggies and they were soooo tender - just excellent. Will definitely go back. More...
Absolutely amazing food with wonderful service! Our waitress explained what is in the items on the menu and was helpful when picking out what to try. The food is so delicious. Their naan bread and chicken curry is phenomenal! 100 stars!! More...
Delicious food and drinks and extremely friendly staff. We've been twice and will go back again.
I would recommend to come to Kohinoor for valentines this Wednesday and any other night for a great experience! It’s a classy and delicious establishment �
This restaurant was fantastic! Chaz, our server, was attentive to our every need and took excellent care of us! The food was excellent- we ordered the garlic naan, chicken methi and lamb biryani, per our server's recommendation- awesome all around!
Dawn Peterson Holler
Great food! Attentive service. Really enjoy going here on a special night out.
Food was great, pop was off flavor. Service was ok.
Always a fan of Indian food since my college days, I was hoping to find good Indian cusine when I moved to the area. This little gem of a bar/restaurant fits the bill. We visited on a quiet Sunday, our bartender was also our waitress and was very helpful. The food was great, served hot and it was an all-around excellent dinning experience. More...
Simon J. Anderson
Outstanding Indian restaurant. I've been to many around the country and this was probably the best I've had anywhere. Excellent food quality, great spices. Superb, you will not be disappointed. More...
Delicious! One of my favorite St. Cloud area restaurants and one of the best Indian restaurants I've tried.
Best food in st cloud. Spice is mild, so ask for more!
We both went in for take out one time and ordered delivery through food dudes. Food was fantastic both times. Love the curry and the flat bread. People weren't rude the time we went. More...
Really great food and a good atmosphere. Not as spicy as you'd think though, I ordered a medium and it wasn't as overwhelming as I expected.
Great food, always friendly!
Dark and cozy, fantastic food and great drinks.
The best restaurant in St. Cloud. My wife and I have had almost everything on the menu and we have never had any meal less than stellar. Any time we have out of town company, we take them there. And the owners are very nice, down to earth people. More...
Delicious and authentic. Flavorful food and unforgettable chutney.
Great food, fabulous atmosphere. Really good weekday lunch specials. Service was good and the wait staff is hip and fun. Highly recommended if you like the spice :) More...
If you're debating where to go, just come here!
Great food and cozy
Great Indian food
My whole office regulars this place. If you're there for lunch just get one of the specials.
One of the best cosmos I've ever had.Terrific service and the food was perfection. We'll be back!
Wowzers!!Last we were fortunate to try there booth at the Summertime at Lake George event here in Saint Cloud, MN.The food was seasoned perfectly to our expectantions. The staff was very courteous and made our stay welcome!Yum yum and yum! More...
Excellent restaurant and bar serving Indian specialties, kabobs, masala, naan bread, curries, and more.
Great food! Waiters are friendly and owners are very nice. Little expensive, but I think the food is worth the price. Good selection of beers and mixed drinks. 5 stars for sure!
Taste is good as they are from north india. Perfect spicy and clean place.
I like this place. The staff is very efficient and friendly. The food is very good.
Amazed by both the service and the quality of the food. The staff went out of their way to make sure everything was great, and I am glad this restaurant is in St. Cloud - we are lucky.
Food is super good, all types of spices from mild to hot!! Tandoor chicken is fantastic!! Great naan bread too!! Curries are outstanding!!! Well worth the stop!!
Pretty much love the food. Its my comfort, go to, special treat that I always hope we get to eat on those date nights.
Great waiter, delicious food! We will be back. We had the grilled meal to share for $35. It was delivered sizzling hot on cast iron with yummy peppers and onions, chicken two ways, lamb two ways and shrimp. Also came with chicken curry and basmati rice and warm, buttered naan! More...
The food is consistently excellent (try the vegetable pakora, trust me) - good service and nice cocktails too! Highly recommended
Get a new sign on the outside of your building; you look ridiculous. Your sign has a giant diamond. I worked next door to this restaurant for three years and for the longest time I thought they were a jeweler because of they're stupid sign. As a restaurant, this place is damn near perfect. It's so cool, it's so damn cool. Aesthetically pleasing, great staff, AMAZING bartenders with an endless arsenal of destructive (yet delicious) beverages, and this is some of the best food in Saint Cloud. This is still my favorite Indian eatery of all time. The staff is very laid back and helpful if you're not super familiar with Indian cuisine, this restaurant actually introduced me to the this new culinary realm and I thank them for that constantly. Even if you stop in for just a moment, take a look around the inside is newly renovated and very inviting. I cannot encourage you all enough to come here. More...
Overall a very good meal! The naan is very very good and food is wonderful in general. I really enjoyed my birthday here
We had a nice meal here. The atmosphere is comfortable and the place just has a nice feeling about it. I asked for a spice level between medium and hot, and being that we're in Central Minnesota, it wasn't spicy at all. Our attentive server noticed that I want completely satisfied and offered to get me some "hot sauce" that more than did the trick. Is it the best Indian food I've ever had? No, but it's the best I've had in this "meat, potato & fried food" area. Thumbs up from me. More...
Very happy with my experiences here. The food has been delicious and the service has been great. I will definitely keep coming back!
First visit was disappointed because it took over an hour to get our food. When our food finally arrived we were amazed! Since then we have visited this restaurant 3 times and every single dish is delicious. Even though this type of cuisine is heavy in spices every time we leave it is not heavy at all. Feels like we cooked at home! More...
Good food, nice vibe, kind people. Spicy food!!! My favorite.
Koh-i-noor is a diamond that brings bad luck to men. Kohinoor is an Indian restaurant in St Cloud. Bet you didn't know half of that. Well, now you do. You're welcome.The latter is pretty good, and didn't bring bad luck to the men in my company who claimed the food wasn't bad. I'm inclined to agree. They could up the spice level, and also bring bad luck to men, and I wouldn't complain, but maybe that's nitpicking. More...
Excellent food and service! Can't wait to drive back to St. Cloud and try other items on the menu.
Love the food! Love the service! Would highly recommend!
Awesome food and atmosphere. It's definitely the best Indian food youbwill find in central MN. The wait staff seemed very knowledgeable about the menu and dietary needs, which was a huge help. Definitely a fun place to go in St. Cloud. More...
Nice little taste of India in St Cloud. Last visit we had an order of garlic naan, which came hot and steaming from the tandoor with just the right amount of char for texture. We split an order of Chicken Balti and Chicken Methi, which were both excellent examples of 2 different styles of curry. You can tailor the heat level to your own comfort, and as a person who does appreciate a bit of spice, I would suggest medium. Glasses were kept full and the server was very helpful with any question we had about the menu. Well stocked bar with several choices for draft/bottled beer and an interesting drink menu. Place is family run, so don't be surprised to see some unattended children in the dining area. More...
We had great meal. We had the Tandoor Chicken with the great vegetables and chicken Methi. Both are great. Will be back shortly.
We visited Kohinoor with family from out-of-town on a weekday evening in August, 2016 before St. Cloud State University classes resumed for the year. There were 5-6 other tables with diners at them, and the service was excellent. Our glasses were never empty, and the waiter was well-versed in the menu and specials, offering good recommendations based on what level of spice and flavor combinations we wanted. Their full bar has some good offerings including local brews. Our food arrived quickly and steaming hot.The food quality is 5-stars, for St. Cloud. Having lived in several larger cities on the east coast in the recent past, it's hard not to make comparisons, though they would be unfair - an Indian restaurant in St. Cloud just can't compete with a great Indian restaurant in Boston or New York City. This is not the best Indian food you'll ever eat at a restaurant in America - or likely even in Minnesota. But it is the best Indian food available in the St. Cloud area. I've tried Spice and others including the few Indian buffets in town, and there is no question in my mind that Kohinoor is the best. In NYC, I imagine this place would rate 3.5 to 4.5 stars, but again, finding food of any variety in St. Cloud that well-rated by east-coast standards is an unexpected treat.We started with two orders of naan for the table, the garlic and the paneer. Both were good, but I preferred the garlic naan since the paneer cheese was a bit on the salty side. The naan was cut into several pieces each, so everyone at the table could try both. For our main dishes, each person at our table ordered a different one of the signature dishes: Masala, Balti, Methi, and Jalfrazi with chicken or lamb. We each tried each others' meals and they were all excellent, though I preferred the Jalfrezi myself since it seemed to be mild enough to let the vegetable flavors show through. Be sure to discuss the options and flavors with the server before placing your order; each is different, and they spice them to order, so you can customize the dish.We will definitely return! More...
This is definitely as good as it gets in St. Cloud. The food is spicy if you ask for it to be spicy, and I mean actually spicy, not Minnesota-oh-jeez-ketchup-is-spicy kind of spicy. Good flavors, fast service, and they deliver. More...
Yum. YUM! Everything I wanted. Please and thank you
Wow this was good. Had chicken bahti special and wifey had sheeskabob wrap. Both were deelish. Mine was a little cold but only complaint. We will be back when driving thru.
Brian L. Martin
This place is amazing.I've always gravitated towards the Indian Buffet places, during buffet hours, not just because I like Indian Food, but because I like trying a variety of things, and I can't always remember what something was based on the words, so I like to see the dishes in front of me. That said, this is not one of those places.This is top notch Indian fare. I'd stopped in here twice for "Bombay East & Tonics" before the incredible aroma coming from the kitchen wore on me, and I had to try their food. As I said in the initial paragraph, with Indian, I've always wanted to see it first, without that being an option though I allowed myself to read the menu and make a decision based on that information. I didn't go wrong, but I doubt such would even be possible here. Everything was awesome.From the "East & Tonics", to the Garlic Naan, to the Paneer Pakora, to the Chana Masala (I order it as spicy as they were comfortable making it for me) everything was simply incredible. Also, if you want Gluten-free, Vegan, or Vegetarian I seem to remember those options all being available on their normal menu, you don't get a "Special Needs" menu handed to you, or some dusty ring-binder full of old photocopies detailing Gluten-free options, you use the same menu as everybody else.Trust me, this place is worth your time, and money (I didn't mention it earlier, but the pricing is very fair). Enjoy! More...
The flavor of the rice dish I had was absolutely amazing! I can't wait to go back and try some more of the food on the menu!
If I could eat lunch here everyday, I would die a happy man. Service is excellent and food is always fresh and full of flavor.
Wonderful food and always prompt, courteous and great service. We like it so much, we will stop in for our New Years Eve dinner tonight!
Gwen Rosha Anderson
Not only is the food heavenly, the owner personally greeted us at the table. I love this place.
Very good downtown cuisine. Yum.
Food that makes you roll your eyes back in your head and make weird animal noises. Try the kohinoor naan.
Had the Friday special never been there before today and it was really really good!
Been here many times and they have great food and drinks.
Food is always great.
Absolutely loved the food and great place.
Food and ambiance are excellent, but when we asked questions about the menu, we were met with a condescending tone from our server. As knowledgable as he probably is about the menu, we would have never known, because he did not offer much information, and didn't seem happy to help. This has happened to me both times I have visited. I will certainly come back, but would like some different service. More...
Steph A Gerlich
It was a wonderful experience and meal. Staff was friendly and helpful...we will be back!!=)
Delish! We started off with vegetable pakora recommended by the waiter which was vegetables chopped up and formed into patties & fries with delish sauces to compliment. I had the chicken Balti- a nice, what I would think of as a typical Indian fare, a creamy red curry. I ordered medium heat that left a nice warm feeling in my mouth. Husband ordered the Lamb Methi- a green curry. His was also good but I wouldn't suggest mixing the two! Garlic naan with the meals was a great add on, good flavor that complimented the meal. The waiter could have been more interested but I can't complain as everything he recommended was good. We weren't disappointed by anything here. More...
Fabulous food and service. Authenticity and the naan bread...+5 stars!
Have been here a ton never had a bad meal. Service is always wonderful. The place is clean. Great happy hour specials and delicious food every time!!!
The lunch specials are amazing and a ton of food for a very reasonable price. The masala is some of the best I've had. Be aware that they close their lunch service at 2:30.
Who takes their hot date to a chain? This is an original gem. The koh-i-noor diamond was the largest diamond in the world.
Fast, friendly service. I picked up my order and brought it home. The chicken masala is beyond delicious! So much happiness!
Jessica Proffitt Heying
Great food and great service. Vegetable pakora is our favorite appetizer.
Barb Massmann Husnik
This is truly one of St. Cloud's little gems. Everything I have ordered was absolutely delicious. Every item that says "recommended" is high-quality, flavorful and delicious. If you haven't discovered this restaurant yet I highly recommend you check it out! More...
Love the chicken balti, and with 2 for 1 beers during happy hour, nice stop after work for dinner
Amazing. fabulous. Wow!..So I was extremely hesitant to come here because I had an idea of Indian food and I was afraid I wouldn't like it. So we were meeting our friends for dinner and they wanted to try the place. Ok.Well we got there and had a very entertaining waiter named Roman. He had a very interesting sense of humor, but it was quite funny. If you can request him, please do. You won't regret it! Lol So I ordered the Grilled Margarita Shrimp, my hubby had the Methi Lamb, my friend had Tanddori Lamb Chops and her fiancé had the Balti Lamb. We also had the appetizer sampler platter and some cheesecake and pistachio ice cream for desert.My dish was five stars all the way! The amount of flavor in this dish was unbelievable, it exploded with the lime, cilantro and garlic flavors! Everyone that tried this dish loved it! It was seriously one of the best shrimp dishes I have ever had!Now let's talk about some of the sauces. There were two that we got on the sampler. One was a green, mint, cilantro spicy dip and the other was a sweet. Both were very unique and amazing. I recommend trying these as well.Of course I topped it off with a piece of cheesecake! Very good!Everyone else had the pistachio ice cream and I tried a bite and everyone agreed that it pretty much tasted like vanilla ice cream and wasn't anything special or what we expected. That was the only thing that was near disappointing.. However the overall experience, food and ambiance was phenomenal! We will definitely be back to try more! More...
Very friendly. Delicious food. Great atmosphere. I can't wait to go again!
The food... absolutely outstanding. Amâñ, Karamjit, Tup, Luke, and Roman make me want to eat 3 meals a day there.
Went here with a girl friend recently for the first time. The service was great and the food was even better. I had the lamb Mahti (sp? ) and the naan bread with cheese. Both dishes were to die for. The spice level for the hot was manageable and testy. The lamb was tender and flavorful. The sauce and rice were on par. I definitely want to come back and try their other dishes although it's hard to deviate when the first dish was amazing. Definitely stop by and check them out. And interior design and ambiance is very inviting as well. More...
Wonderful food and good people to work for :) 7 star's to Kohinoor
Delicious Indian food with great hospitality...!!!
Food was amazing!! Staff was very helpful and explained the menu. I would recommend to anyone. We will be returning!!!
We've only recently discovered this TREASURE and we're totally hooked!!! Chicken Methi ... WOW!!
Fabulous St Cloud find, great atmosphere, Roman is great. Best Bartender. Highly recommend.
Food was absolutely excellent. Service was great too. It was a bit pricier than I would like so we won't be back often, but definitely a place to check out if you're a fan of indian cuisine. I wouldn't suggest it for a first date night as the ambiance is more of a bar dive feel, but it was cozy and the hubby and I really had fun! More...

Great Staff, Food, and Ambiance! We will be back!
This is a great restaurant with great service. It is so wonderful to have an alternative in St. Cloud. Bartender and server were both great.
Really delicious food, great drink selection, and Roman behind the bar is awesome. Definitely recommend it.
Great food and drinks for reasonable prices. I recommend it!
The owner spent time at our table, the food was fantastic,the atmosphere was super clean and laid back.
Food was great. Best garlic naan ever
Nice to sit outside on a summer evening. Cordial, super fast service. Food arrived piping hot. Chicken masala tastily-spiced and contains red peppers. Delicious. Wouldn't have changed a thing. More...
Lunch outdoors was delightful. Chicken balti was daily special and a dish that will bring us back. Attentive service kept beverages flowing. Surprising to find this gem in central Minnesota! More...
Wonderful people to work for, and great food! Thank you for the experience!!!
Great food. Order the chicken masala and add mushrooms-naan is also phenomenal. Service was very prompt, awesome staff (Taj you're the man)
I went here only because this restaurant had the highest Yelp reviews in the area...and it turns out the high reviews were correct! Delicious and fresh food, great service. Don't forget to try the chai! More...
Excellent service. Lamb dish was top notch. We will be back
Love it! The food is so delicious and you can get it as zippy or mild as you like. And so fresh! The service is very friendly and if you have questions about the menu, they are more than willing to help you navigate. I highly recommend Kohinoor for any special occasion or just because! More...
Very impressed and surprised. I tend to be very picky, however I loved what was brought to our table. Extremely friendly, and informative staff. A must visit for anyone.
Intimate atmosphere. Good service. Excellent food. I had the Tandoori Lamb Chops which were cooked to perfection. Herb/Spice marinate is lovely and the lamb was tender and not greasy with a nice crust on the outside. Will return again!
I was optimistic about Kahinoor and boy did they deliver! I had the Tandoori chicken but also sampled the chicken masala and tiika paneer as well as the Kahinoor naan. All the dishes were very nicely prepared and the flavor was rich and tasty. I found myself involuntarily saying "Mmm" after the first couple bites of my Tandoori chicken. For dessert I tasted the pistachio ice cream which is made in house and the rice pudding. Both were light and satisfying. The service was also polite and welcoming. My waitresses checked in with the table often, refreshing our drinks and asking us about the food. At one point my waitress forgot a coffee order and then returned, profusely apologized, and offered to bring me a cup on the house. This minor lapse in service was dealt with very well and added to an overall very pleasant dinner. I would definitely come back. More...
Incredible. I will be spending some time here. WOW!!!!!!
This place has quality service, the food is always great, and the atmosphere is nice.
Amazing food, great service. Wish I could eat here every day of the week!!
Love this place and so glad that we have another great dining option in the downtown area that isn't just bar food. Delicious Indian food for all "heat" levels. ..I have friends that have no tolerance for spice and found menu options they loved. Service is wonderful. The hostess, server, and owner (who has always been present when we dined there) are friendly and helpful. Environment is comfortable. We prefer the high-tops in the bar area to the booths, but overall, I don't think you an go wrong here. More...
Delicious food, nice drink selection and excellent atmosphere. Really like the beer selection, lots of good craft beers to choose from. I also suggest trying it out for lunch, they have some excellent deals that are perfect for a downtown lunch hour More...
Ate lunch today, I had the tuna kabobs and my husband had the lamb meatballish kabobs. Was quick for lunch, attentive service and very clean dining area and restrooms. The garlic and cilantro naan was made to order and wonderful to wrap out meats. More...
Great Gem, great experience, great food. All staff friendly, made great recommendations. This was our 1st time here, but will become regulars.
Tasty food. Great service. Only negative: Booths are uncomfortable--they lack room and seats are slanted too much. I felt like I was sliding off the seat.
Three and a half stars. I had the chicken tikka and it was good. The drink list does not include prices. I am thankful they are in St. Cloud and I hope they will be successful as the town lacks in good dining options. Ambience left something to be desired with whomever I assume is an owner on his laptop but never stopping to interact with the guests. There were only a handful of us there. More...
I don't know if it is a regular item, but the Monday lunch menu special is one of the most amazing food items I've ever had! Chicken, veggies, and rice with hot flat bread. AMAZ-ing! More...
Delicious selections, great service, highly recommend!!
Best new restaurant in St. Cloud. We are there every week with family and everyone loves it - even those who never tried Indian food before. Order the lamb Balti (or chicken) You'll keep coming back too! Great happy hour prices with a good selection beer and specialty drinks. Friendly service is a big plus. More...
Awesome food ordered for your spice preference. Great service, love stopping in here.
First time having Indian cuisine and loved it! Our server was phenomenal and was great with the kids!
Chicken manchurian- chicken was tender, seasoned wonderfully, great flavor. Lamb balti-bursting with flavor, could simply eat the curry sauce with rice and would've been happy. Excellent place for Indian food, would come back again More...
Very nice and cozy restaurant/bar. I was there for lunch. The place looked clean, nicely decorated and generally very appealing. The menu has an interesting combination of foods. The ethnic meal I had (chicken kebob with spiced vegetables) was excellent. Prices seemed reasonable for a high quality meal. Service was very good. Will definitely return. More...
I have tried several items on the menu and have loved them all. The staff are impeccably professional and personable and the atmosphere is perfectly mellow. My new favorite establishment.
This is a must try. Food is always great. something new and different in St. Cloud. You wont be disappointed. Added bonus one of the best top shelf selections. All my favorite Glen's are here.
Just went this evening. ...and couldn't have enjoyed a better meal in such a great atmosphere! Very well done everything! ! Great family...great food...great ambiance! More...

Wow! Amazing food and service and atmosphere!
The food is delicious and the servers are incredibly friendly and patient with newcomers! Try it out!
Who Knew?. Indian food (and I've had the real thing in India) in St. Cloud? I had an unscheduled dinner in St. Cloud, saw the name, took a chance. I had the Lemon Chicken Soup, flawless, bright with complex flavors, piping hot. I had the lamb Bahti (very good) over basmati rice (perfect). Even the Naan was exceptional, not at all heavy. This was better than any Twin Cities Indian experience to date. More...
Got the lunch special. Everything was delicious! For two meals was less than $30 with beverages. Jack provided excellent service and wonderful information, very knowledgeable of the food and the process of creating it. We both left extremely full and certain that we will be returning on a regular basis! More...
This is hands down best place to be in st cloud! The food is beyond amazing, flavorful and exciting. Also, atmosphere is very nice! High class with a home touch, and the service is great!! More...

It was all very good! Wonderful food, service, and atmosphere. I love the size of the restaurant - just big enough to feel like you have space and privacy, but just small enough to still feel cozy. There wasn't anything we didn't love about it! More...
Fantastic everything!! Just ask the bartender Roman about the pistachio ice cream
Great to know that most everything on the menu can be made vegetarian! Great flavor, friendly service, and very clean restaurant.
Great addition to downtown! Food, service, and atmosphere were fabulous!! Can't wait to go back and try more of the menu:)
