Season's eatings! The weather may be getting colder, but Dining Month on OnMilwaukee is just cooking up, dishing out your winning picks in this year's Best of Dining poll. Dining Month is brought to you by Fein Brothers, your premier food service equipment and supply dealer in Wisconsin since 1929. Congratulations to all of the winners, and happy eating for all those who voted! See all the winners for the month so far here.


For 11 straight years, we've had this best of dining poll. And for 11 straight years, Maharaja has come out on top of the Best Indian/Pakistani category – with little competition in sight, with the next closest competitor coming up more than 100 votes short. 

Since opening its doors almost 20 years ago, Maharaja has consistently been one of the best Indian spots in Milwaukee. With menu that offers cuisine from both northern and southern India, it is hard to find something you won’t like – whether dropping by for one of the restaurant's popular lunchtime buffets or diving into one of its signature plates – including the Seekh Kabab (minced lamb with onions and spices) and Reshmi Kabab Lahsooni (chicken breast with cream, yogurt and spices), both cooked in the clay tandoor oven – for dinner, Maharaja's flavors clearly keep Milwaukeeans coming back for more.

Cafe India, Tandoor, Bollywood Grill – the OnMilwaukee editors' pick – and Taj Mahal filled out the rest of the flavorful top five. 

Runners up:
2. Café India
3. Tandoor
4. Bollywood Grill
5. Taj Mahal

OnMilwaukee editor’s Pick: Bollywood Grill

Lori Fredrich’s pick: Anmol
I’ve been a pretty big fan of Anmol for years now, and it seldom disappoints. You can’t go wrong with the pakora or chicken makhani, and don’t be afraid to order the goat or mutton curries – they’re delicious. A bonus is that the na’an is some of the best in the city.
