Maharani is perfect for any special occasion! The food is one of the best that I've had for Indian food and the seclusion is fantastic for any "date" situation. I definitely go here every time I'm in the Bay Area.

This place is incredibly overpriced. We payed $150 for 2 for a mediocre indian dinner. There are much better indian restaurants in this city and much cheaper. My advice : run away!
