Went out for our Friday night dinner to Maharaja Indian Kitchen. We started with Samosa, which are Indian pastries stuffed with potatoes and peas and deep fried. Great appetizer. Then we shared Vegetable Jalfreizi made with bell peppers, tomatoes, and carrots in a spicy sauce. It was spicy enough at the "mild" level. We , also, shared Chicken Vindaloo, made with chicken, curry sauce and potatoes at the medium level. The meal was accompanied by rice and Naan. We ordered Indian Tea Massala, which was aromatic and sweet and had milk in it. Service was great There were just a few couples dining, with some people coming in to pick up take out orders.

I always think of this as family dinner because my friends and I share everything at the table. We order a few different dishes and they give everyone a plate so you can dip/mix/stir/sample to your heart's desire. The naan bread is also wonderful. Service is great but the food is a bit slow so be prepared to wait (it's because it is all made fresh and WELL WORTH THE WAIT!!)

We tried something different at Maharaja, last night, for dinner. As an appetizer, we had Gobi Manchuria, which is a well seasoned fried cauliflower. We ordered it at medium heat level, which was spicy enough. The complimentary dipping sauce which came with the chips was better that before - more flavorful and thicker. My wife had Channa Masala [Tomato, onions, and chickpeas with traditional Indian spices] at mild heat level. I had Karahi Chicken [chicken cooked with onions, peppers & tomatoes in gravy] at spicy level, which was a bit too hot. Service was very good. We, also, had Tea Masala, which was sweet and spicy - a good foil for the heat of the dishes.

Have been to Maharaja Indian Restaurant several times before, and I almost always had their Vindaloo with Lamb. Vindallo is a curry like stew, with a meat and potatoes. It is always served with an aromatic Basmati Rice. My dining companion had Methe Chicken, which was excellent. We had Samosas as an appetizer, which was great as usual. The Naan which we ordered with our meal was OK. The average rating is due to the toughness of the lamb. Service was very good.

Had dinner at Maharaja again. Had Chicken Tandoori in the past, which was not great - made from diced chicken instead of whole pieces. This time we had cauliflower [gobi manchuria] as an appetizer and Tandoori Shrimp as a shared entree. The Tandoori was colored very red, sweet and with tiny shrimp. Not the best dish. We are giving up on Tandoori at Maharaja. We will stick with Vindaloo and Methe Chicken. The service was very good.
