Not a good value. My $10 bought me a styrofoam container with 50% biryani (rice and a small chicken drumstick), three bite size pieces of chicken tikka masala, two boneless chunks of chicken tandoor, a couple small pieces of naan, and a little sweet item (I forget the name). The biryani was "chunky", with clumps of spice intermixed with unspiced rice. The tikka masala was very creamy and mild, but did not taste like any other tikka masala Ive had elsewhere. The tandoori chicken was nothing close to what I would imagine... it appeared to be baked chicken chunks with some spices sprinkled on top, and not the red coated, lightly charred variety one normally associates with "tandoor". The naan was doughy and rubbery rather than being light and crisp in spots like it should. See my photo if it ever gets published. In all, nothing here was "bad". It just didnt seem to be what was expected, and I dont feel that I got very much for my money (after all, rice and chicken arent the most expensive items to start with). There are three sit-down Indian buffets within several blocks, which all give you slightly-to-superior food, and give you all that you care to eat for about the same price.
Might have been good I dont know since we never found the restaurant. Called ahead to get a reservation at the phone number on their website. We ended up calling someone in Atlanta? No one answered the first call. The second call, the guy just said hello. For how many? okay Bye. Didnt take our name, nothing. We shortly received a call back that was obviously a mistake. Got down to the address that google has listed and could see in through the locked doors the name of the restaurant on the directory so we walked around the entire block and still couldnt find an unlocked door to get in. Given the poor service on the phone earlier we didnt call back and went to a different place. Really disappointing as we were very excited to try this place. Once they improve customer service on the phone and perhaps warn you when you call for a reservation how to get into the building they might have a shot.
This is a great lunch spot because its cheap, quick, delicious. Its a no-frills joint. You line up and get whatever selection of indian food you want. Its $9 for vegetarian and $10 for non-vegetarian food and you can pick as many different dishes as you want -- no limit. I really liked the chicken biryani, fried spinach, chicken curry, and chickpeas. Theres also a huge seating area so youll probably be able to grab a seat. Its, again, no frills but if you just want cheap good food and are craving something more ethnic and not burgers/wraps/salads/etc., you should check out this spot!
Great visit, got there just before a lunch rush. Tip to future workday visitors, getting there at 11:30 or sooner is a good idea, we leftabout 12:15 and the line was out the door. Good food, tastes what seems pretty authentic to me (not being a native Indian food eater). Good spice, good portions. One weird thing...no garbage can by the exist door...gotta fight through people trying to find a seat to through away your tray...seems a can by the door would be helpful.
terrible prices. once went there for buffet, charged me five bucks more than off menu... cash. i figured it was a fluke, then they tried the same thing when i tried to get breakfast. so i walked out and will not be back. service is consistently rude, unhelpful, and insulting. go hear only if you want to pay fourteen dollars (?!?!) at lunch for bad dal.
Most times when I order biryani at an Indian place in the US its actually fried rice, cooked in a skillet at the last minute and generally pretty soggy. The biryani here is the real thing, fluffy and layered and perfect. It was available on the lunch buffet today, and is highly recommended!
Terrific in every way! Authentic… Very authentic… The boss and senior manager took me and theyre both from Araungabad. They are also both foodies and expressed their content and how authentic and well prepared the food was. The cost is right also which means Kadai gets a 5!
Hidden gem of the skyways. Super confusing ordering, have no idea what Im eating or how much it will cost (usually like $11) but its DELICIOUS every time. Also -- if you wont do well with spicy, let them know. The same dishes will vary visit-by-visit on heat.
Amazing indian food. Pretty authentic. Especially the Hyderabadi dum biryani. I really enjoyed the misore masala dosa too! Cheap prices compared to other indian restaurants. (Reviewed by an Indian from India)
The taste of food in this restaurant is very good compared to all other Indian restaurant in Minneapolis downtown. Ambience is ok and bright. Very much approachable through skyway. Staff are very friendly.

Great selection, great flavor, I didnt expect to find anything in a skyway with as much flavor. With a past career in the industry, Id recommend this place to other cooks.
Thank you Kadai team for stupendous lunch. We are overwhelmed by Kadai hospitality. The food was simply awesome. We wish you all the success. Thanks for all the chefs.
Food was good. Just dont get it when they are getting ready to close. One of the workers was less than happy that I was there ordering.
The chicken tikka masala (butter chicken) is leagues beyond anything Ive had before. This is one of my favorite Indian food restaurants
Great food, and very patient and friendly staff. Can never predict what the buffet menu will be day to day but it never disappoints.
Its really good and tasty indian food. I never miss the chance to visit there. But I dont like the way they serve in small box.
I go to this Indian restaurant mostly for evening snacks and I like the samosas and onion pakodas with Indian masala tea
Good food, no decorating, price is a little bit higher than at other lunch places in skyway, but you get a lot of it.
The food was good but the staff was so unwilling and it felt like the person working there hates his job.
This gem is one of my favorite lunch spot downtown. Best Indian food and you get a ton for $11.
Anyone looking for good Indian food definitely count on it. But they have almost same same menu.
Its so so so so so so so amazing!!!!! Cant believe I walked by it 1000 times without trying it.
Great vegetarian options. Super tasty and flavorful. Definitely my new favorite lunch spot.
Nothing is labeled or posted what it actually is. Hard to ask those working in the place.
Lunch buffet is excellent - FYI it ends 2:00 pm. Closed from 2:00-2:30 for cleaning.
This place and Skyway Wok are the best place to eat lunch in downtown Minneapolis.
Good food.. Loved the mutton curry and Biryani.. Authentic Indian food around!!!
A wide variety of quality food makes this place a regular stop for my lunches.
Good variety of foods and very tasty, could stand to be cleaned up a bit.
Very good food and a lot of it for a decent price. Good variety too.
Awesome food. The best tasty food available in minneapolis area
A good place to have Indian buffet or tea or Indian snacks.
