Gandhi Mahal

3009 27th Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55406 | Seward/ Longfellow/ Minnehaha | 612-729-5222

Location Description:

There are a lot of reasons to love Gandhi Mahal: the handmade, quilted tablecloths; the sitar player (on Thursdays) in the corner; the authentic, thoughtful decor; and the quietly courteous staff. But most of all it's the food. Gandhi Mahal's northern Indian cuisine hits all the right notes: expertly fried samosas (the tamarind dipping sauce is a favorite), a pitch-perfect chicken tikka masala, delicious fresh-made lassis, and a wide selection for vegetarians, all served with an understated grace. Best yet, the portions are beyond generous, so it's hardly a challenge to stretch one meal into three (and really, what's better than the smell of garlic naan reheating in the oven?).
