Amazing Indian food on the West Side

There just aren't too many veg-friendly restaurants on the West Side, but those few are typically outstanding. And Maharaja Palace is no exception.

This a quiet, homey place, and very romantic venue; especially since you won't see the wait staff too often. But the food is consistently delicious, and spiced to order.

For vegetarians, there are innumerable soups, breads, and entrees to choose from: Potatoes, peas, eggplant, etc. are plentiful, and sure to bring a big smile to your face.

Be advised that dinner entrees come with no extras, and they won't tell you about the soaking you're in for from that little extra piece of bread (or two) or from that tiny serving of rice; which can add up very quickly. Dinner for two with no extras will run less than $20; whereas with a few extras, it can easily top $30.

Large lunch buffet.

This was only the 2nd time in my life having Indian cuisine, and the 1st time for my non-vegetarian husband. I took him there for our date night because I heard they had a vegetarian-friendly menu for me, and an otherwise-yummy menu for him. The staff was very polite, the tables were fancy with their cloth napkins folded into their wine-shaped water glasses, and real cloth tablecloths.
Excellent service, quick to respond. The mushroom masala was to die for, and their garlic naab bread was mouthwatering. With our 2 meals, the garlic bread, and 3 beers, our grand total was only $32. The dinner portions looked small at first, because of the small oval-shaped platter that it arrived in, but when we dumped it onto our dinner plates, we were mystified how it suddenly looked like too much food! Also, everything on the menu is spiced to order, so you don't make a tragic mistake.

West Side


In the same strip mall as Wal-Mart, at the southeast corner of 59th Ave and Bell Rd. If going west on Bell Rd (from I-17), turn left (south) at 57th Ave, and then take the first right. Restaurant is on the left.
