Maharana Indian restaurant Hinwil

Being of Indian descent, I am quite critical of Indian restaurants...... There are a few good restaurants and I must admit over the last 10 years the quality has generally improved.

Thursday night I had dinner at the Maharani, and was very impressed. The 🍆 Aubergine Bengen Masala was amazing. The chicken tikka, Paneer Shani was really good. As well as the freshly made Naan. The prices aren't cheap, but the quantities are more than adequate.

Definitely will be making that my new go to restaurant.

When was the last time you left the house, those prices are normal.

Indeed. Ever since Shah Rukh Khan filmed his epic "Palaces of Hinwil" in the city, they've been flocking there in their thousands.

Did I say thousands. The Indians sometimes do organized group tours and this restaurant is on the itinerary

Re: Maharana Indian restaurant Hinwil

The prices may seem high, but the quantities are more than decent, all mains were served with rice and raita.

I would gladly pay Sfr5 more for freshly prepared meals

How are these prices any different to any other restaurant? I think it's pretty reasonable. In the 20s for a main course. What are your suggestions for good value restaurants?

Re: Maharana Indian restaurant Hinwil

Based on what a proper meal costs compared to average nett income, I actually find Swiss restaurants rather cheap compared to a lot of us surrounding countries.
