I just had lunch at Maharaja Indian Restaurant in Plano today.
Appetizers were okay. The rest was bland and tasteless.
Terrible customer service too. I will never go back.

The owner/manager gave a balloon to a child in the restaurant. My 3 year old son saw it and he wanted one too. I asked the waitress for one and she ignored me. I asked the owner/manager for one and he started complaining about what trouble it is to blow another one up (with the helium tank) or untie it, etc.
I didnt want to hear that. If your giving out things to customers, and if Im a customer and I am paying money at that establishment, I expect the same.

I worked in restaurants before and know the importance of customer service. When service is good, customers tell a few people. When service is bad, customers tell A LOT of people.

I know that it doesnt work for your geographic filter, but Mayuri in Las Colinas is quite good. You will rarely see non-Indians in there, which I consider to be a good thing. I work with several people who are recent to the U.S. from India and they all love it. They are how I found out about it. They have both South Indian (dosas, idlhi, sambar, upma, etc.) and North Indian (chicken tikka masala, etc.)...Its been there for awhile, and is associated with the same ownership as Sarovar in Austin, TX...which was the first of the two and started by Indian graduate students. Both very good.

I second this. You can't go wrong with Mayuri.

hey guys - havent checked this thread in a while I will try and give it a more thorough reading tomorrow. I have been to a few of the places mentioned. Kebab and Kurry, in my opinion, is really not that good. Our House in Irving is pretty good, I have been there a few times. Clay Pit is fusiony, I guess it's ok... Chettinad Palace I have been to once, and it was ok. Roti Grill - I have seen this place here in dallas, but it seems pretty expensive for the offreings.

Several years ago there was a place in north Arlington called Shusmi. I always thought this place was good, but I think they went out of business. Any information on them?

Unexpected - thanks for your "resident Indian" opinions. I will definitely try Iravat!

This again is not in the specific area you are looking at, but Taj Chaat House in Irving (183 & MacArthur) has excellent indian food. You can get both individual dishes as well as "thaalis" (full course meal).

It is definitely lacking in terms of ambience, you order at the counter and pick up when it is ready and the food is served in disposable plates. But the food itself is excellent both in terms of variety and taste.

I have been to India Palace at Preston & LBJ and MumTaz on Campbell in RCDSN near 75.

IP buffet = 9.95 and is quite good.

Mumtaz buffet = 6.95 also good, edge to IP but value to MT. Nice people too! They gave my son his lunch for free on his birthday!

No place beats London for Indian food though, probably not even Mumbai!

As a customer, I am just asking why the food tastes different each time. But then again, the owner, or the owner's son, who walks around the restaurant floor like a security guard doesnt have any courtesy. If I am customer spending money at their restaurant, I expect good customer service- not give guests a cold shoulder. I dont know if its a lack of people skills on his part or what.
Sorry to hear you had a bad experience at Kebab N Kurry...we've been going there since I was a kid (at least 20 years!)...and I am still a big fan! We are ALWAYS greeted warmly by the staff and owners...one of the other reasons we love it (besides the food) is the mom & pop (or I guess in this case, pop and son) feel to it. I agree that the food sometimes is a little differerent from night to night (but always still good)...depending on who the chef is that night...but I think that is overall a good thing....not so formulaic. That being said, I tend to order one of my favorite three dishes (unless we are at the buffet, then I have a little of everything)...so many just those are good! haha
