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.

Went before a concert. Service, food and atmosphere was great. After dinner they even packed up our leftovers to be picked up after the concert. That is GOOD service!

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!

My partner and I stopped in before a show, and we both left happy we stopped in. The decor is a little much but besides that the food is fun, authentic, different and very vegetarian friendly. And for all the food we got the bill was very reasonable. We will most deffenetly be back for more. It is my opinion this place is underrated and a hidden gem.

We had a good experience! If you like Indian Food, this is a very good choice! The menu offered many authentic options! I was a little mislead, as I thought it was in the North Loop area, but it is south of Washington Avenue on Hennepin Ave.. It looks like they do a nice lunch buffet! I would recommend it!

Had to wait 25 minutes to be seated after the reserved time.

Appetizer was extremely sweet. Main course was tasteless with a weird sour taste and a lot of Garam masala. After complaining to the manager, they just added some spices to counteract the sourness which remained unchanged. We ended up not eating the curry and decided not to go there again.

This is my favorite restaurant. The food is incredible. I also like that it's not a noisy place; I can hear the people I'm sitting with. It always feels kinda warm and cozy in there and there is a spicy aroma in the air. I am so surprised that I don't hear more buzz about this place and that it is not packed constantly. People need to try this place.

This was my first time eating Indian food so the host picked the appetizer and dessert for us. Not really sure how to pronounce them but they were delicious. The host went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our meal and experienced some of the great foods they had to offer. Was really excellent

Food was fantastic! Incredible. Met the owner, also a great guy, but seems overwhelmed. Made a reservation for 8 pm, weren't seated until 9... no compensation, so may as well have just walked in. If take the time to reserve a spot, I expect that there will be a table in a reasonable time.

Service was slow and we had a show to attend afterward. Will not return before a show again. Food was good. Don't sit on the side of the room where the front door is located on a cold evening. The cold air rushes into the restaurant every time the door is opened.

It was a excellent meal for four people. This was a pre Cirque de Soleil TORUK show dinner-gathering of friends, including one vegetarian diner. Everything from taste of food to reasonable pricing was satisfying, Copper Pot is definitely maintaining its high standard. I last ate there four years ago when I attended the show War Horse. Just like last time the food and service were outstanding! I would there again and again if lived nearby rather than in White Bear Lake!

Probably some of the best Indian food I have had. The samosas were delicious and the crust was super flaky and crisp. The pakora was also a great appetizer! For our entrees, the lamb vindaloo had such tender pieces of lamb and a flavorful spicy sauce. The andhra chicken was a wonderful new try. The sauce was very unique and had the perfect amount of spice. Great service, very attentive and friendly!

First off my friend and I were asked to put our jackets on when we sat down. Apparently our tank tops (which showed NO cleavage or skin other than our arms) were offensive? Perhaps to the culture? I don't know- we were not told. Mind you it was about 95 degrees that day and we ARE on American soil. I was offended. The waiter's demeanor was abrasive and abrupt. He made us feel we were inconveniencing him every time we asked a question or requested something. Perhaps it was just his way. The food took a long time to come. Appetizers were not that appetizing. The main courses were tasty but portions very small. We received only 1 bowl of rice with our 2 dishes - to share. We had a show to catch so couldn't finish the meal and asked for to-go containers. They were extremely small and my shank couldn't fit in them. I was told sorry you can't take the bone because that's all we have. We asked for foil for the pita bread (which was delicious by the way) and we were brought 1 piece of foil! We had to ask for another. This was during Restaurant Week and these meals were $30 each - not cheap. I also noticed not one female was working in this establishment. I found that rather odd. At any rate, I will not come back here, and I will not recommend it to any of my friends.

The food was absolutely delicious. There are lots of options for vegetarians and meat eaters alike. The cocktail list was fantastic. My group had reservations for an event after dinner and the staff was great about getting us out in the nick of time. The location is pretty great for people watching - especially during a themed bar crawl! I will definitely be coming back to Copper Pot.

Finding a good Indian food restaurant is difficult in MN but this was a great find. The gobi was a spectacular appetizer and the chicken tikka was delicious. The chef is capable of making dishes that are not super hot but still very flavorful. I will go back and try the spicer version of the chicken tikka very soon.
