Coming soon to downtown Champaign: Indian cuisine

CHAMPAIGN — Coming soon to 6 E. Columbia Ave.: Indian cuisine.

Khoinoor Indian Restaurant and Lounge will open at the address that until last month housed Escobar’s, developer Michael Markstahler said Tuesday.

The restaurant will be owned and operated by Meena Ghimire and son Ujjwol Ghimire. Plans are to open sometime before December, Ujjwol Ghimire said.

It will become the Nepalese American family’s second C-U eatery, following the 2013 launch of Sitara Indian Restaurant and Lounge in downtown Urbana.

Another Indian place. I'm shocked.

Yes, because downtown Champaign is literally filled with Indian restaurants.

Apparently you don't eat Indian food, because there are only THREE Indian restaurants in C-U, and NONE in the downtown. I personally can't wait for this to open, Sitara is awesome.

JRR was clearly being sarcastic to point out how uninformed Chambanacitizen was. Looks like you just plain missed it.
