I was in charge of picking a restaurant for a work-related lunch. I suggested Maharajah because it’s close to work and the buffet means we can get in and out in a timely fashion. The exterior of the building is nothing to look at, which was why I was surprised to see a spacious room and decorative touches. I particularly liked the chandeliers dangling from the ceilings.
There was always an employee around watching and replenishing the trays with small, fresh batches. The selection included: naan; papadum; rice; butter chicken; tandoor chicken; daal; panner; vegetable pakoras; vegetables; salads; rice pudding; gulab jamun and fruit.
I tried most of the dishes except for dessert. Several of the dishes were quite creamy and rich. The big chunks of butter chicken and the nicely spiced pakoras were my favourite dishes. There are lots of saucy dishes, which is perfect to mop up with the endless naan.
The flavouring and spice level in all the dishes was quite mild, which was appreciated by our table. Our table of ten went for a second heaping plate and then for dessert. The restaurant was a hit with my co-workers. For the all-you-can-eat buffet, it cost $20.00 a person. Not cheap but worth it if you have a big appetite and work in the area.
