If you are in Houston, TX and crave for Indian food as I do, then this place is definitely for you. The ambiance, the service and food is all amazing. The best part is that they have maintained the taste exactly the same as in Indian outlets. The only difference is you will find a mexican, or some other national... More

My sister took us to Maharaja Bhog when we were visiting her in the summer, and it was a fantastic experience… I’ve never had thali in quite this fashion! The staff treat you like royalty, what with washing of your hands and refilling your thali as soon as any item is diminishing… although there is so much variety that you... More

From the moment you walk in to Maharaja Bhog you feel welcomed not only by the employees but by the exotic aromas as well. We were allowed to choose our own seating and asked if this was our first time dining with them. Rohit was great-he walked us through the entire dining experience and made sure we were comfortable and... More

This is a good restaurant with nice Gujarati food. None of the food item will give you a hint that you are eating out of India. However, it is a bit pricey. I paid 90 USD for 4 persons (incl. tip). If you do not crave for gujarati food avoid this, there are plenty of other options in Houston.

This place serves an unending thali of Gujarati food until you tell them to stop. You get about nine or ten items. All items were superior. They offer options like Jain and lacto-ovo vegetarian in addition to vegetarian. It is authentic Indian food. The place gets packed quickly, so it must appeal to a lot of people.

The good gujarati food away from home. Staff is courteous although some non Indian staffs are employed, they do not understand the items but at least pronounces correctly. Full marks for food quality and service. They charges the gratuity as part of standard bill.

I lived in India for 16 years and it was a treat to find an authentic thali service in the US. Here, the experience is as important as the food. You are pampered from the moment you walk in until you leave. After the traditional hand-washing, the waitstaff whisks to and from filling the small bowls on your thali with... More
