Former Moe’s space to become Indian restaurant

The doors had barely closed at Moe’s Southwest Grill when a new restaurant signed up for its space.

Jitendra Poudel owned both Kathmandu Bistro and Everest Cuisine Restaurant in Rapid City but sold them to open an Indian restaurant in Sioux Falls.

“He wants to move as quick as possible,” said Scott Blount, a commercial broker with Lloyd Cos. “He’s in the process of moving his family to Sioux Falls and sold both Rapid City restaurants. He likes the area and thinks it will be a good place for his family and his restaurant.”

Poudel will need to do some remodeling to the former Moe’s space at 41st Street and Western Avenue. The franchise restaurant closed last month. The plan is to open in December, Blount said.

The restaurant doesn’t have a name yet. The concept calls for a lunch buffet and sit-down dinner.

It will be the second Indian restaurant in Sioux Falls, joining Shahi Palace.
