Milwaukee's best Indian restaurant, 2013
For the seventh straight year, October is Dining Month on OnMilwaukee.com, presented by the restaurants of Potawatomi. All month, we're stuffed with restaurant reviews, delectable features, chef profiles and unique articles on everything food, as well as the winners of our "Best of Dining 2013."
In seven years of balloting, Maharaja, 1550 N. Farwell Ave., has been the voters' choice for Milwaukee's best Indian cuisine seven times. We'd say that qualifies as a lock on the title. The East Side restaurant nabbed nearly 40 percent of the vote, a little shy of last year's percentage, to once again run away with the category.
Maharaja is welcoming, consistent and offers a wide array of specialties from the Subcontinent. It's daily buffet continues to offer an incredible variety of both vegetarian and meaty Indian dishes. And it all washes down deliciously with a King Fisher beer.
There's a steady flow of diners during lunch and it's frequently crowded in the evening for dining off the menu. Maharaja is also a popular destination for those in search of a non-traditional Thanksgiving or Christmas celebration.

The Lamb Vindaloo and Chicken Shahi Korma I had a couple of weeks ago were very different from versions I had had previously at Maharaja. But if the recipes haven't changed, then maybe there was a different chef that night.
Maharaja has changed (slimmed down) its menu and changed some of the recipes. Mayura has closed, so it shouldn't be on the list of runners-up.
Oh! That "Indian"!! I was expecting to find a place to get good Buffalo!
