I thought the restaurant smelled pretty good when we walked by and the deck looked fun, so I persuaded my companion, who had never been to an Indian restaurant, to give it a try. Big disappointment. Curry wasn't very tasty or spicy. Portions were skimpy....More

Always great. Go with the goat. Some rogan josh and coconut naan makes for a great dinner. Can be a wait at prime times and sometimes short of staff but everything comes out quickly.

Wow! We got a recommendation to go to Rainey street and ended up at G'Raj Mahal. Fantastic Indian food and great happy hour specials. Had chicken Tikka and Vindaloo. Both were fantastic. If you like Indian food, don't miss this place!

The food was scrumptious! I had Roti and vegetable Kashmiri with almond milk (this milk alternative is offered) and basmati rice. The food was plentiful and our waitress, Brooklyn, was informative, funny and welcoming. Vegan and vegetarian friendly!

While I'm not an expert when it comes to Indian cuisine and cannot speak to whether or not the menu is authentic, I really enjoyed this restaurant! Our server was very helpful, taking the time to discuss and recommend several dishes for my coworkers and...More
