My son is half Indian and our family is very passionate about Indian food, so we were thrilled to learn Oxford now has an Indian restaurant. The food did not disappoint! As soon as we were seated, our waitress brought a basket overflowing with fried...More

Had dinner at Maharaja again. Had Chicken Tandoori in the past, which was not great - made from diced chicken instead of whole pieces. This time we had cauliflower [gobi manchuria] as an appetizer and Tandoori Shrimp as a shared entree. The Tandoori was colored...More
