It’s not every day you see a small restaurant chain listing locations in Mumbai, Dubai and Houston. But that’s the geographical distribution of Maharaja Bhog, a network of vegetarian thali-style restaurants that recently opened an outpost on the Southwest Freeway at Gessner.
Almost everything I’ve sampled here has been good to very good, and it’s never dull. The food may not have the galvanic complexity of the best dishes at restaurants like Himalaya, Shri Balaji Bhavan, or Great W’Kana, but it’s fascinating and fun to eat.
