Posted by Maharaja on Tuesday, 19 February 2019

Maharaja in Hindi translates to “emperor.” This restaurant serves meals fit for royalty, including delicious buttery and rich gravies, soft naans and tender meats, along with equally tasty options for vegetarians, such as lentil curries and paneer dishes where the cottage cheese melts in your mouth. The butter chicken and daal (lentil soup) are the most popular main courses here, and you can be assured that these are prepared fresh. Samosas or pakoras make for some great starters, and you can finish your meal with a delicious helping of carrot halwa (traditional dessert preparation in milk, sugar, and ghee). The ambience in this restaurant is very clean and minimalistic, with no fuss. This is a good place to dine in with your family, with wooden teak furniture and simple decor that does not distract.
