Kinaara is Chef Ashish Sathyan's scratch Indian restaurant. We specialize in dishes from Kerala but feature from all over the diverse sub-continent. Try our famous Butter Chicken but also add on a dish you probably have never heard of, all of it will be amazing. You will find items that are not on any other menu, such as Grandma's Fish and Mango Curry and beef specials. We are a small casual restaurant that let's the food be the star.

    The food is delicious. The menu is small but has a variety of options. The Masala fries with chicken is an appetizer but is definitely enough for an entrée. My daughter is picky and said this was a 10/10. I would absolutely agree. It is a hidden gem at Regency.

    Food was good once order was corrected. I think it was mostly based on service and our waitress. She mixed up a few things. Also food was slow to come, which was strange since it wasn’t very busy. Once everything was corrected all was well. I’ll try again.

    The fried beef was bland so we used the samosa sauces. I had the goat stew, which was tasty but not a lot of meat. There were 2 larger bones but not much meat on them. The samosas were good & you can't go wrong with naan. The bartender didn't know how to make a manhattan! Best to order off their drink list. We got French 75's which were fine. Our server was great. Didn't get bogged down with the issues we encountered. Sorry but we won't be going back.

    We went on a late Saturday evening, and it was busy. We made a 7:30 reservation, but they didn’t have our table ready until close to 8. It took a while for the waitress to get to us, but once our orders were taken the food came out very quickly and it was delightful! My wife ordered the butter chicken and I ordered the paneer tikka masala, both of which we thoroughly enjoyed, and we will be back again!

    We love Kinaara! I’ve had so many favorite items on their menu over the years. We weren’t able to get in for the chefs tasting menu but that’s okay because we had the always delicious chili chicken and wagyu beef coconut fry.

    The cuisine was fine, not outstanding but reasonably good. The kitchen and the wait staff didn't seem to be in sync, though, and they'd have been in a better position to satisfy if there'd been one more waitperson. The room is large but seemed oddly laid out, and the furnishings are a bit of a hodgepodge (previous iterations of the restaurant's repurposed furniture?) Located in the way-back of the Regency mall, there was insufficient signage when we entered the mall from the east side and it took a while to locate it. We all agreed we wouldn't be rushing back–there are better Indian places in west Omaha.

    The food was just not right tonight. I ordered something I’ve had many times before, chicken curry, but the heat in the medium level spice was so hot I couldn’t taste anything. My eyes were watering. There was no flavor. Only heat. I couldn’t eat it. Our waiter was rude from the second we sat down. It took me quite a while to catch his attention to explain that the food was off. He insisted that it was not. And he brought me some yogurt to add to the curry. It made it taste very odd. Not like a milder curry. But like an extremely hot yogurt. And when I told him I was going to send it back and not eat it, he told me that they would not be taking the food off my bill. I had eaten two bites I explained I would not pay for it. I heard him in the kitchen, referring me as “chicken curry lady“. He made me feel very stupid. I remained calm throughout the encounter. I asked to speak with the owner and explained the rude service, and that I had been going to his restaurant since it opened in millard. I had brought many friends and family there. I was offered an apology, and the food was taken off my bill. But I will never return. The server was truly the worst I’ve ever encountered. Instead, try saffron. The service and the food is consistently excellent

    We got a recommendation to visit based on this being “the best in town”. It did not let us down!! The food was perfection, so dang good! We brought a friend who hadn’t tried Indian Food prior and it was the best for experience!!! We will definitely be back.
