Best Indian, 2007: Maharaja
The votes are in and the winners have been selected for OnMilwaukee's Best: Eat & Drink, 2007. The results of this readers' poll, including an editors' pick, are available in this series of articles that run all October long during Dining Month on OnMilwaukee.com.
The spicy aroma constantly emitted by Maharaja Restaurant on Farwell Avenue is tempting enough to get any Indian food lover to pull over for a meal. Perhaps that's what contributed to its current status as OnMilwaukee.com readers' favorite Indian restaurant.
Of course, it could also be the actual food.
Dinners at Maharaja feature an extensive East Indian menu crowded with curries, meats and breads baked in a traditional tandoori oven.
The $8.95 daily lunch buffet offers a large selection of Indian soups, vegetarian favorites like palak paneer (spinach cooked with homemade cheese), chicken and beef curries and, if you save room, you can always count on an endless supply of gulab jamun -- those little fried dough balls dipped in sweet syrup.

By the way, where did the "runners-up" come from? Did people actually vote for them? Asian Delights (#8 on the list) has been closed for several years. Also, Ujala seems to be closed.

Bombay Louie's? Isn't that a restaurant in Kenosha? And it's not even an Indian restaurant at that, though it does have a couple of curries on the menu. Putting BL on this list is a bit like saying Applebee's has great Italian food.
