If you fancy Indian food, this is the best in Madrid.

This is the third Moharaj restaurant to open in Madrid, and I am recommending this one over the others simply because it is near the Prado and other museums, and is a lot bigger so you don't need to book. The food is equally good in all three. The other two are in Lavapies, and the Calle Buenavista branch is not far from the Reina Sofia museum. The Calle Ave Maria one is probably the most popular, and has outdoor tables. These are not fancy places, but not overly basic either. It's all about the food. I hardly ever go to any other Indian restaurant in Madrid these days.

Food and drink

Most dishes are made from scratch, so don't expect your order to arrive at the table immediately. The Moharaj platter is a good way to kick off if there are four of you, as it has samosas, bhajis and pakoras. I could recommend an alarming number of dishes here, but will resrict myself to the prawns rezala, chicken jalfrezi, lamb rogan josh, beef madras and matar paneer. I could obviously go on, but this is making me very hungry indeed.

Ambience

This branch has only been open since early summer 2010, so has been a bit quiet on my visits so far, but that is bound to change once people realise it's there. The other branches are always full with curry lovers of all descriptions.

Service

Waiters are friendly, helpful and speak English.

Location

Down a side street near the Cortes parliament building. A short walk from the Thyssen-Bornemisza and Prado museums.
