Maharaja
This is what dreams are made of.
As exciting and wonderful as HUDS always is, sometimes, it’s nice to take a break from fresh asparagus toast and venture into Harvard Square. It can be hard to imagine, but there are actually other things to do here besides go to Felipe’s rooftop bar on a Friday night. For those who crave flavor, here’s a PSA that benefits you: Maharaja, the Indian restaurant that’s been closed from a fire in 2014, recently reopened above Staples.

For those less aware of the history of the restaurant, it was once a well-functioning place that enjoyed the business of both hungry students stopping in after buying school supplies and of everyone else who didn’t want to go to the other Indian restaurants in the Square, Tanjore or Chutney’s. Then Maharaja’s kitchen had a fire, and the restaurant shut down. The only clue left for disheartened customers was a paper sign that said, “We’ll be back soon!” We despaired.

But now, the restaurant is open again for lunch and dinner every day of the week- we highly recommend the lunch buffet because when you have the choice between unlimited food and limited food, you always choose the former. Welcome back, Maharaja.
