Located in the heart of Northeast Minneapolis just across the Mississippi River, Gorkha Palace offers authentic Nepali, Indian and Tibetan cuisine. We use high quality fresh ingredients sourced from local organic and sustainable farming. Our dairy products are organic, meats are naturally and humanely raised without hormones or antibiotics. Our spices are ground fresh and ghee (clarified butter) is made in house. Gorkha Palace is named after an ancient historic palace that sits atop a hill in Nepal. From the palace one can see the majestic snowcapped mountains and the captivating rolling green valleys that will take one’s breath away. We are proud to be the first within the Nepali, Indian and Tibetan restaurant community to go Green.
From the delectable, juicy, momo of traditional Tibet to the richly flavored spiced curries of Nepal and India, our eclectic cuisine reflects the flavors of the Himalayans. Our foods are prepared in the style of South Asia and Tibet, a little spicy and little sweet. Our style of cooking is reminiscent of the Mughal Empire of India and the Royal cuisines of cultural Nepal and Tibet. Enjoy the unique culinary experience that Gorkha Palace brings as you journey across the globe to mystical Asia. Due to the large variety in our cuisine and the availability of seasonal vegetables, our menu will change frequently.
