Maryland is one of the smallest states in the United States and covers less than a third of a one percent area of the total land area of the country. However, this eastern state has over 3,000 miles (5000+ kilometers) of coastline, every type of terrain, and all-weather and seasons, which is why it is called ‘Little America’. Tourists love this particularity, which they get in such a tiny region. There are also several great accommodation options available, including beachfront rentals and luxury Airbnbs in Maryland. Regarding the cuisine, since it’s a coastal state, Maryland is primarily known for its delicious seafood. But we would like to show travelers something more exotic than just crab and fish. In this article, you will see a list of the top Indian restaurants in Maryland, USA. We have tried to include every genre of Indian restaurant, so please read on!
