Spicy MahaRaja


180
.


Where Slumdog Becomes a King

Whether we are not a slumdog or a millionaire, all of us enjoy to be fed like maha raja (the greatest king), at least for a night. Pleaseeeeeeee!

Spicy MahaRaja, the restaurant with northern Indian accent in Central World Plaza (and a branch on Surawong Road) didn't offer royal service but brought us tandoori, curry, masala, and nan that we could enjoy in line with the privilege to a maha raja. Taste is friendly to all ages and nationals yet authentic. Spiciness in your dishes (esp. curries) is on your own hand, as simply choose from a 'spicy' scale of 0 to 50, namely from mild to super hot, that suit all-palate of liking. Level one is the kind of curry even a baby can eat.

Price is on the modest side and service is of those mall restaurants standard.

Thanks TC. I remember that time we ordered the food to the very low no. degree of "spicy" and it turned out it's a bit too mild. The food is pretty good though. BTW, I can't reply nor write emails with my yahoo, gmail or my co. server account for the time being here in Cannes. I can't even delete emails on my mail boxes. Very strange. Don't know why but the blog posting is normal. That made me recall my hard time with electronic booking with Air France a few months ago.

Hi TC,
The food loos good here.
I do like Indian food, especially the Roti.

in the sea said...

I guess last time we tried scale 5 or 10. So that means we can ask for 15 to 20. :)

Indian food almost serve as national cuisine in England, people here eat curry more than fish and chips. Glad to see Bangkok also has quality Indian restaurants.

Stella said...

Indian Food is also popular in LA. But they are kind of salty and too spicy to my standard.
Hope those at BKK are better.

Thailand Club said...

no la, last time, maybe we ordered the 2-4 levels for our food there

i think 5-10 is good enough for us, for not regular curry and spicy food eaters level 11 and over maybe too strong for them; however once with my local friend, we ordered 50, so burning hot, but we enjoy so much :)

Actually it may not be the hot that would upset me. It's normally the oil upsetting me... :)

Indian curry is very strong.
Singapore curry or Japanese curry is milder.

You are right Louisa. I also like Japanese curry as this is the only curry I don't worry about sore throat.
And Indian curry is too strong.

Seems like you can get sore throat very easily. Have you tried mybacin lozenges available in Bangkok? It is really good for sore throat.

Stella said...

Yes I do get sore throat every time I have white pepper or spicy hot curry. The only safe one is Japanese curry.
I bought a lot of mybacin lozenges. It is very good but it is not medicine. Just like the HK "Duck Kuo Ding".

SS, I guess your tonsil is a bit folded inside and that tracts the "hot" stuff easily. You can try to stretch your tonsil muscle inside like "swallowing heavily". This way, the folded parts would be cleaned a bit inside. Water may not rinse well on the hidden folded parts. Hope that would help.

Thank you SEA for the advice. I will try to swallow hard.
