Description: Operating since January 2006, Happy Rajah Indian Restaurants have rapidly established their credentials as traditional Indian cuisine specialists and are now among the best on the island overall. Happy Rajah is situated in the Super U complex in the heart of Grand Bay, and offers authentic Indian cuisine in a surprisingly cozy and warm venue. At the Happy Rajah, a team of North and South Indian professionals join their expertise to produce the authentic cuisine of the 17th century Moghul Emperors of India as well as sumptuous regional delicacies such as Chennai spicy vindaloos from the South. More than a mere outing for an Indian meal, the Happy Rajah experience has been likened to a voyage to magnificent India.

“Decent Indian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

A huge disappointment in Mauritius is the lack of quality Indian food, surprising though that may sound..so pleasantly surprised that Happy Rajah is a decent restaurant with good food and well priced with good service..want an Indian in the north..try this one. I have been there multiple times

“Reasonable Food but Avoid the Cocktails”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

We were recommended by a local to try out this restaurant. It wasn't very busy (Thursday night) but the staff were very eager to take orders almost before we sat down. My wife and daughter tried the cocktails but were very disappointed as they were lacking in any sign of the advertised rum ingredients - when we queried it we were told that there was rum but you could have fooled us all. Nevertheless there was an extensive menu and the food was very plentiful and quite good. One of the papadom dips was very spicy but the rest of the food was not - a little disappointing. For Mauritius, the meal was good value but we wouldn't drive the 10km again just to have another meal there. Our hotel had better Indian food.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Great food if you're all set for indian dishes...don't waste your time on mix platter starters-order some chicken tandoori instead-kids will enjoy the wow -size dosa (veg) .Chef: 1 small roti or 1 puri is really too little for the thali- 2 medium sized ones would be normal & acceptable...the food tastes great but portions should be revised....& match the prices
Why do I have the feeling that I'm paying more for the location rather than the food ?

“Excellent curry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here because it was recommended by the lastest travel guide. The curry was truly excellent, but the promoted king-size prawns were overrated. They were as big asadvertised but blend in taste - would stick to the indian cusine. Overall the place was enjoyable. Book in advance! We did not try the desserts.
