"Gourmandism is an act of judgement, by which we prefer things which have a pleasant taste to those which lack this quality." – Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Shahi Maharani Restaurant

I got to know of this North Indian restaurant back in 2005. I won a $50 voucher from Symphony 92.4 and my whole family went to try this restaurant. Little did we expect the food here to be SUPERFABULOUSLYEXCELLENT! Since then, this has been my Dad’s favourite restaurant. He will always request the chef to give more gravy so he can dip his naan in them.

The restaurant is very cosy. The whole place is carpeted. The furniture is bulky. There is a glass to view the chef grilling your Tandoori chicken.

We will always order:

1. Tandoori Chicken (quarter – $12.50, half – $22.50 , whole – $34 )
2. Rogan Josh $21
3. Mutton Vindaloo $21
4. Goa Fish Head Curry $38.50 (need to wait for 20 minutes)
5. Saffron Rice $7.50
6. Plain Naan $3.50 each
7. Raan Sikandra (half – $30 , whole – $43 )

You will be served complimentary Indian crackers (one per diner) as starters. Their crackers are fragrant with spices and some of them can be spicy hot. Then your main dishes will be served all at the same time.

So far, all our visits were never disappointing. Their food is always kept at a consistent standard. Every dish is fragrant and will make you cry for more! The waiters and waitresses will come over and ask for your feedback on their food. During dinner times, there will be a live-band to display some North Indian music.

Prices exclusive of 7% GST and 10% service charge. Go for their 1 for 1 lunch buffet on weekdays for your money’s worth at $42++. (i.e. $21 per pax) However, their buffet menu is not the same everyday. Sometimes, they don’t have our favourite saffron rice and tandoori chicken. The buffet comes with refillable crackers and naan.

Let me know if you can find something better than this restaurant!
