I was shopping at East Towne mall and looked at my car navigation system for a place to eat as franchises are not my thing. I decided to try the Maharana . The outside was unimpressive but it turned out to be a great find....More

Awesome food here and complimentary mango ice cream! Love this place - a total gem in a strip mall on the east side. Id recommend the Baignan Bartha and the shahi paneer - super yum.

I tried this place 3 times. Once for takeout, another time for dine-in & third time for buffet. I was not really impressed with ala-carte menu but buffet was awesome. There were so many items in buffet & all of them were almost perfect. I...More

Enjoyed dinner here with my husband and a good friend on a Saturday. I had called ahead and was told no reservation was necessary. We were seated upon arriving. None of us had been to an Indian restaurant for quite some time so we needed...More
