Come for the views, stay for the maas ke sule. Located on the second floor of an iconic Harvard Square building, with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Cambridge action, The Maharaja is a bona fide date-night spot. The pleasures begin with the ornate place settings and quickly move onto the cuisine itself, which regularly earns "authentic" accolades from guests. The naan is both perfectly crispy and perfectly fluffy, while dishes like murgh malai kebab and bhindi do pyaza help you break out of your tikka masala rut. The lunch buffet includes both vegetarian and vegan options, and the staff will expertly guide you through any food allergy pitfalls.
