The owners of Nala Pak take Indian food upscale, both in ambiance (it's in the former home of Willie's Wine Bar in downtown Minneapolis) and fare. The wide-reaching menu includes everything from snack foods found in India's streets to Continental-style fare served in its fancy hotels. It reaches across India's regions and beyond its borders, with vegetarian dosas from the south; tandoori, or clay-oven-cooked, meats from the north; and seafood from the western coast. There are dishes with Chinese, Afghan, and even Anglo influences, such as mulligatawny soup, the famous dish Indian cooks created to please the British Raj. Classics like biryani, paneer butter masala, and gobi Manchurian are delicious, but the upscale dishes and service aren't reliable enough to make Dancing Ganesha feel like it's breaking much new ground.
