Restaurant Notes: Kinaara Indian Restaurant Moves to Regency Mall | Omaha dinners

A preview of this month’s events in the Omaha Metro.

A popular Indian restaurant that opened three years ago near 138th and P streets in the Millard neighborhood is moving in late October.

Kinaara’s new location at the Regency Mall near 102nd Street and Regency Parkway is larger than the original, owners Ashish and Kimberly Sathyan said in a Facebook post.

The restaurant became a favorite with Omaha diners soon after its launch, even amid the pandemic when it was only takeout. The Sathyans said the Millard site would remain open until shortly before the move and the new site would open shortly after.

They said they would provide updates when specific dates are set.

“This move would not have been possible without all of your support,” they said. “We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
