We were lethargic and were not sure what we wanted to eat. It was a Sunday night and we knew we wanted a sit down dinner, so when we looked in the window we made a decision on Indian Food - which we always have liked but didn't particularly fancy on that night. Boy were we lucky! My wife had... More

At this restaurant we had a very good waiter, a little hard to understand some things, but he gave us good service. The food was excellent.

I'll admit on first impressions i wasn't confident i'd get a decent curry from the Great India during a recent business trip to Minneapolis. Thankfully i was wrong! Being from the UK i have a penchant for unfeasibly spicy food, the extent of which i've found difficult to experience during my frequent travails across the US... I ordered a Lamb... More

Lunch buffet was $8.95 and well worth it - had several things on it that were outstanding and not found in other Twin Cities Indian lunch buffets. The chicken karma was terrific - and I have not seen this elsewhere. Other restaurants have vegetable pakora but this was especially good. Many other options on the lunch buffet. Water is free....

The quality of food was very good, we enjoyed the lunch buffet. The pricing for weekdays are fair. The service was also good. Worth a try, if visiting that part of the city.

We had the lunch buffet. The dishes were bland. There was not one paneer option and no samosas! ?! The naan looked rushed ... the pieces were mangled and uneven. I know it sounds petty but it's the details at restaurants that give me confidence in the rest of the food. Also no liquor license.

Great lunch options. Not the best Indian food I've had. However the naan was fresh and tasted good. Price is great for lunch. Will return

I have been to this restaurant many times for lunch and have never been disappointed. The food has been tested by my Indian friends, out of town guests and they all liked it very much. My Indian guests commented that this was like home cooking. The food is always very fresh, spiced right but not overly. I find some Indian... More

Great India is the kind of hole-in-the-wall place that my wife and I love. It's on our regular circuit when we eat out. Try the Dumpakht, the chef's favorite. It comes cooked in its own pot with a puffed up naan covering (my wife's favorite) or the Chicken Malai Kabab, marinated chicken on skewers with onions and peppers. It was... More

Nice choices for buffet can improve more on chicken options. I like the desert options, convient location and probably only good Indian restaurant in the area
