Exceptional customer service! Staff was all polite and went out of their way to make us all feel welcome and made sure everything was good. The cooks are amazing I would prefer Kumar over other Indian restaurants due to their polite customer service, flavor in their food, their price value, and their portion size!

As a vegetarian, this is one of my favorite places to go to eat or pick up take out. Everything is fresh and flavorful. Definitely try the banana leaf on weekends!

Unique dining experience if you aren’t familiar with South Indian cuisine. Great menu selection. Dosai and curry are very good

I'm so happy I finally made to Apple Valley, MN and enjoyed the delicious food at Kumar. The hostess was attentive and the food came out timely. The menu was beautiful and great to look at with wonderful pictures. We basically picked from the pictures we saw on the menu. I've never seen this done at an Indian restaurant in MN, but they show the different cuisine that is from Northern and Southern India.

The Story

The Story
A volley of sunshine through the protesting leaves of a thousand sleeping coconut trees, casting designs of a quiet rebellion on brick floored courtyards. In a clay pot on a wood fire, mustard seeds crackle to wake up the village. The onions always go next, creating a cosmic sizzle. ​ The sights and sounds of South Indian cooking are deserving of a riveting Epic. At Kumar's, you can pick up a hardbound copy. No embellishments, fiercely authentic.
