Sponsored -- Around for years and with a steady following for both lunch and dinner, Shahi Maharani is a regal and reliable North Indian experience tucked in a quiet corner of Raffles City Shopping Centre. Doting service, lavish Mughal-style decor and live Indian band aside, the menu does solid tikkas and curries, some coastal and Bengali staples, fresh and warm naans and some exciting signatures like the spicy Soft Shell Crab Mirchiwalla. And even carnivores should try their vegetarian selection, including the kamal kakri (lotus root) kofta.

Fine Indian restaurant Shahi Maharani has a loyal following. And it’s easy to see why. Their food is top-notch, the service professional and polite, and the ambience charming, with live Indian classical music six nights a week.

We decided to pop by for their ever-popular lunchtime buffet. We were not disappointed. From the salad starters, to the rich chicken, fish and mutton curries, the tandooris, the dhals, the fragrant basmati rice, the fresh naans, and the wonderful chutneys and raitas; the food was totally delicious and we mopped up every last bit on our plates. Judging from the queue at the buffet counter, other diners thought the same, and kitchen staff were kept busy topping up rapidly emptied trays.

We’d recommend this restaurant anytime—whether for a meal with friends or a business lunch or dinner—it certainly does deliver.
