At Maharaja, food is king, echoing the Sanskrit word's royal meaning. Dishes are piled high with spices, vegetables, and meat still hot from the tandoori oven. The menu offers vegetarian, seafood, and curry entrees in the form of the chickpea-laden chana masala, the barbecued shrimp tikka masala, and the lamb curry steeped in a garlicky ginger and onion sauce. For dessert, dig into kulfi, an Indian ice cream laced with pistachios, or mango ice cream made from the rare mango ice cream fruit.

At Kastoori Grill, the kitchen takes cues from India, Nepal, and Tibet to create everything from naan bread to momo dumplings. Familiar curry dishes and entrees fill out the Indian side of the menu, along with a wide selection of vegetarian specialties. As for the Nepalese specialties, the standout is the Alu Tama Bodi: potatoes, bamboo shoots, and black eyed peas flavored with traditional mountain spices. Should any dish prove too fiery, the staff can adjust it—they're adept at preparing both mild and pepper-packed extra-hot versions, which go well with a cool mango lassi or a samosa stuffed with ice cubes.
