Q: What’s the name of a good Indian restaurant?
A: I like to send people to a terrific Nepalese-Tibetan-Indian place called Gorkha Palace (23 4th St. NE., Mpls., www.gorkhapalace.com), which has an awesome farmers market connection; the restaurant started as a dumpling stand at the Mill City Farmers Market (704 S. 2nd St., Mpls., www. millcityfarmersmarket.org), and it’s one of the many reasons why I love to hit that market on Saturday mornings.
Another favorite of mine is Curry ‘N’ Noodles (802 Mainstreet, Hopkins, www.currynnoodles.com). For a more traditional Indian-Minnesota experience, you could try Gandhi Mahal (3009 27th Av. S., Mpls., www.gandhimahal.com) and Dancing Ganesha (1100 Harmon Pl., Mpls., www.dancingganesharestaurant.com). Or check out Copper Pot Indian Grill (10 S. 5th St., Mpls., www.copperpotus.com). It’s a relative newcomer, with an impressive buffet-style lunch and a full bar, an Indian restaurant rarity.
