Before the British occupation of South Asia, the predominant force that ruled a majority of the continent was the Mughal empire, which originated in Ferghana (modern day Uzbekistan).
The cultural and religious capital of this empire lay in Bukhara due to the established silk trade routes from the Far East to the Mediterranean. This Indo-Islamic power had control over most of Asia and the city of Bukhara was the melting pot for all these cultures and their cuisines. As this great power vanished, so did much of its culinary inventions, but some aspects of this style survived in Northern India which have since come to be known as 'Mughlai Khanna' (food of the Mughals).
Today we carry this ancient tradition of culinary excellence at Bukhara Indian Bistro under the supervision of the first chef to bring North Indian food to Minneapolis and of one of the best North Indian culinary arts master in the Midwest Chef Joginder Cheema.

Authentic Northern Indian cuisine.
Huge menu. Beer & wine menu. Sunday brunch has buffet which was very crowded. Quiet atmosphere and great place for conversation. Many food choices.

The food here is consistently fresh and delicious. The staff is amazing. Gracious, welcoming and knowledgeable. The Biryanis (saffron rice dish with green peas, almonds and raisins) with chicken, tofu or lamb are great... we haven’t tried the others. We order a delicious eggplant dish Baingan Bharta under vegetarian choices as a dip for the house made garlic naan...heaven! My favorite however is Chicken Tika Masala. The masala sauce is wonderful. Very reasonably priced in our view. The food, the staff and the value are part of a lovely, flavorful dining experience.
