I have been waiting to find an Indian place like this in Houston! A wide variety of rich flavors, great spice, fun presentation and energy in the restaurant. My new favorite place to eat in the city. If I have out-of-town guests I'm definitely taking them here. For those who don't like the food too spicy, they have funny little placards that say MILD they leave in front of your plate. Such a great time! Lots of kids here too.

Grew up eating Gujarati food and haven't had it in a good 10 years! Saw this place and decided to give them a try and boy was it amazing. Felt like good old days with warm, delicious dishes, poori, roti, khichdi etc. Place is very clean and spacious and the service is great. Variety of dishes and fast service! Definitely recommend them and will be back in future.

Awesome Gujarati, Rajasthani Thali! One of the best places in the country!

They serve only vegetarian food.

Always surprised how great vegetarian can be. You should not miss this Thali deluxe. Went there with business colleagues during lunch

We have eaten at numerous Indian restaurants in the Houston area and have many favorites. (We are gringos, but love Indian food!). When we were recently told about Maharaja Bhog by some Indian friends, we put it on the list of places we had to try. Today we got around to it, and my, my, my! The entire experience was first-rate: attentive service, quality of food, and my biggest criteria for ethnic food--a mostly Indian clientele. Must have something going for it!

We were greeted warmly by the host, who seated us at a table already set with thali dishes. We were quickly served by a staff member with drinking water and buttermilk, then another staff helped us wash our hands (in preparation for all the finger food--Indians traditionally eat a lot of this with their fingers). Other staff came in quick succession, piling roti and puri (breads), appetizers and chutneys on our plate, filling our bowls with curries and sauces, then later returning with rice and other items. The host explained everything to us when we asked. They refilled anything we wanted as often as we wanted. To be honest, one serving of everything was more than enough, but I forced myself to have a few favorites again, just because they were so tasty.

I liked everything about the experience. It is priced higher than most other area Indian restaurants, but you get real value for the money. Well worth it! If you have eaten at other Indian restaurants and enjoyed them, try this one. It will give you a different and complementary experience.

We went on a Sunday for lunch, and fortunately we were there on the early side (about 12:30). Since there were only two of us, we were seated immediately. Within 15 minutes, there was a large crowd on the sidewalk in front, waiting for tables. So, come early, especially if you have a big group, or be prepared to wait (still worth it!). (I don't know if they take reservations).

It is an all-vegetarian restaurant, so if you have to have meat, go elsewhere.
