Our food products will be of the finest quality and prepared with uniqueness, sensitivity and care. Customer satisfaction will be the hallmark of our restaurant. We will change our menu every 4-6 months, but intend to keep ‘local favorites’ from the menu. All the lunch and dinner portions will be modestly sized with an excellent and attractive presentation.

Our wine list will be modest in size and primarily focused on wines from California, France, New Zealand and Argentina. . We will also feature a moderate international beer selection on tap and in bottles.

They were out of the Drinks that we ordered, the portion size was so small (Drinks and Food). We couldn't order so many items from the menu as their Chef was not out. The food quality and taste was not something special and we would not recommend this to a friend and will not come back to this restaurant, considering so many other better options. No value for money, horrible experience!

It was fine. I've been here before for lunch. And it was okay. I'm kind of not in a good mood right now, so it's difficult to know.

This was our second experience here and we won’t be back. The food was mediocre, the Indian rice pudding was inedible. The naan was decent and the rice was plentiful.

The food was delicious, and they accommodated our need to leave in time for our event at Target Center. They even offered to keep our leftovers properly stored if we wanted to stop back after the show. The sad thing is there was only one other table occupied - and we were there from about 6-7:15 in a Saturday evening. Great food, service, and value - why aren’t more people going there?

This may well be the best Indian food in town, with a number of out-of-the-ordinary dishes to complement the usual tikka masala and butter chicken. However, on our most recent visit on a Saturday, they were crowded (not a bad thing in and of itself) and not staffed to handle the crowd. With only two people to handle the dining room things got very slow. We had made a 6:30 reservation to have plenty of time to catch an 8:00 show across the street and wound up just barely making it.

First, I was accosted coming in when I had a reservation. I was going to the bathroom and the owner jumped me. He apologized after I stewed in my juices for a half hour. The drinks were mixed up and the food was weird. Don't waste your time. The noise at the Pour House at 9pm was unbearable.

We ate at the Copper Pot on the way to a concert at Target Field. The service was friendly and attentive. The appetizer samosas were spicy and just the right texture. My vegetable biryani was delicious, but I would have liked more vegetables in it. The other diners at the table were delighted with their entrees. We will be back. Their cocktails were unusual and very good.

We enjoyed a delicious meal of tikka chicken masala and lamb biryani before a concert at Target Field. The naan was outstanding! The restaurant is an easy walk to this venue.

Went to Copper Pot to celebrate a birthday. Had mentioned that in the booking, but nobody seemed to know anything about it, at least they never mentioned it.
Buffet was good, but not great. Food had just the right amount of spice though. Much better than "Minnesota spicy".
The entrees the other had were good, but again not great.
Although I would return here, it would only be if I was in the neighborhood. I would not make a special trip.

If you like Indian food the Copper Pot in Minneapolis Theatre district should be your go-to place. We like spicy, which is hard to achieve without losing flavor. The food we had was spicy and with lots of flavors. I highly recommend the Kebab platter, a little bit of every kebab. It was very good. We also enjoyed the restaurant Mom's recipe. I don't remember the actual name, but it is tasty. They were also very accommodating with our children. I enjoyed their tumeric cocktails, unusual and delicious. We will be back.

Wonderful evening! We had dinner after the Brave New Workshop Conedy Show - a quick walk from the restaurant even in freezing weather.
The food was outstanding and the service was just right - attentive but not overwhelming.
We will be back!

Told the server a little about what we liked in general and asked him to surprise us. We were not disappointed! Food was delicious. Spice level was right on target. Veggies were cooked to tender perfection. Cauliflower appetizer with saucy batter was fantastic.

Only negatives were;
Lamb was a little too firm, considering that it was a stew.
They forgot about our request to remove an ingredient due to food allergies. But they did whip us a new dish moderately quickly in response.

Excellent dinner. After chatting with the owner, he said he wanted to select and make us three dishes; one meat, I've chicken and one veggie. Everything was delicious! You can select the degree of heat/spiciness. Naan was great too!
