Where to Find the Best Indian Restaurants Around Cambridge

Cambridge boasts an unparalleled selection of restaurants serving delicious cuisine from all over the world. When it comes to authentic Indian food, we think you'll love these unique Indian restaurants near our Cambridge apartments:

The Maharaja

Since 2011, The Maharaja has been serving mouth-watering Indian cuisine from their second-story restaurant overlooking Harvard Square. Through their floor-to-ceiling windows, you can 'people watch' and admire the bustling square below. Start with a bowl of Mulligatawny, a traditional soup made from a flavorful blend of vegetables, lentils, spices, and herbs. Then move on to their namesake dish, the Maharaja biryani. You surely can't miss this exotic blend of basmati rice, boneless lamb, tender chicken breast, sauteed shrimp, vegetables, and traditional spices. In fact, these are just a few of the many specialties you can explore at The Maharaja.

Spice Delight

Spice Delight is a popular choice for consistently fresh and delicious Indian food. Try their chicken tikka masala, a classic dish of chicken marinated in a savory yogurt mix and baked in a traditional clay oven. The saag paneer is one of the chef's specialties. It's made with paneer (cubes of semi-soft curd cheese) cooked in a spinach sauce with savory spices. They serve large portions and almost all dishes come with fluffy, fragrant basmati rice. Be sure to also add an order of samosas (vegetable or lamb filling in crispy, flaky pastries) and chutneys to round out your meal.

Singh's Dhaba

There is no better way to experience traditional Indian street food, small bites, and snacks than a trip to Singh's Dhaba. This family-owned restaurant opened in early 2022 and prepares fresh kebabs, curries, and appetizers that truly taste homemade. A great way to try out the food is to order a 'thali', which is like a lunch sampler. Their thalis also include a choice of two or three entrees, plus basmati rice, an appetizer, and Indian bread. Don't miss some of their most popular dishes like bhindi masala (crispy fried okra with onions, peppers, and tangy spices) and baingan bharta (roasted eggplant with green peas, tomatoes, and herbs).

After your delicious meal at one of these Indian restaurants in Cambridge, treat yourself to a sweet, flaky pastry from one of these local bakeries. If you're thinking about making Luxe at Alewife home, contact us today. We'd love to discuss everything our apartments in Cambridge have to offer.
