One of my worst experiences ever in a restaurant. I have NEVER heard owners yell at customers and I have been in the restaurant business for almost 20 years. Serious control issues. Seems as long as she likes you it is golden, but god

This place is small, and it seemed that every family member was there, and was so good! The cook even came out and asked how we like our food. We were encouraged to try different types of naan, which were all delicious, and it was

Our family loves this restaurant!! The food is outstanding. My son especially loves to order mango juice to accompany his meal. The appetizers are great. There is a buffet option. The staff are attentive and friendly. Located in the uptown area of Minneapolis. The restaurant has a parking lot--a plus in this busy neighborhood where parking spaces are at a premium. I've been there for lunch and dinner and have had great experiences at both. I've been satisfied with food ordered for take-out.

My party and I had the most marvelous time in this small and quaint restaurant. It is definitely family run, and you feel as though you are in the presence of family. The owmers and their kids make sure that you are comfortable, well fed

Before I begin to rave about my favorite Indian/Carribean restaurant, let me point out that the phone number listed is incorrect- 612.823.2866 is the current phone number.\r

On the strength of reviews we read here, we returned to Marla's location, where we had eaten a pretty dismal meal in this place's former purely Indian incarnation a few years ago. Perhaps it is because we had high expectations, or because

Pros: Great service, good appetizers, nice ambience, family run with dedication

Cons: Alas, (really) bad vegetarian main-course food. Tight parking on popular nights, but does have its own lot.

Can't say enough about this place. My first time to Marla's and I can't wait to become a regular! This will be my only Indian restaurant of choice. There were 4 adults in my group and 1 - 2 month old. We had ordered our beers and

I am from England and i know a thing or two about Indian Cuisine as curry is our national dish. The food at marlas is in my opinion the best Indian in Minneapolis. I ordered Chicken Korma, a lamb rogan josh, the tandoori mix of shrimp

Having eaten at a variety of well known Indian Restaurants... Marla's reigns supreme. Low fat options across the board, all of them delicious. $6.95 for the Buffet, normally a restaurant looks to get away with offering a lot of options

In Short
This colorful space is comfortable, spotlessly clean and makes a nice alternative for budget-minded diners in the upscale Uptown area. Young couples, neighborhood singles and groups of friends sit under a tented ceiling…
