“Absolute Must visit in Macau”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

A must visit place if you are travelling to Macau, and especially if you are from India.

Great home food served with bollywood songs playing on TV. The owner is a famous personality and the people running the place are very friendly.

The food was delicious. Do try one of the Paneer preparations.

“Very good Indian cuisine in Macau, matches anything we can find in HK”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

We recently ate at one of Macau's most popular Indian restaurants called Aruna's Maharaja Indian Curry and Cafe House, which has more than one branch in the city. On this occasion we tried their branch off Avenida de Amizade on Lotus Square where you can also find the Grand Prix and Wine Museums. Overall, our lunch here was very good, matching pretty much anything we can find in Hong Kong and well deserving of recommendation and repeat visits.

For this visit we ordered the Chicken Tikka Massala (MOP75) which came with chicken tandoori pieces cooked in a creamy, well-flavored masala curry. This order resembled curries had in UK-based curry houses which are generally creamier in style and texture than what we’ve had in India. Overall, delicious and easily recommendable (rating 4.5 of 5). We also had an order of Aloo Gobi (MOP50) which was equally very nice. It had more veg than potato though but it was quite flavorful and matched the tikka massala main quite well (rating 4 of 5). Meal was complemented by Jeera rice and garlic naan. The naan was on the thin side and and one piece had a lot of charred portions but anyway we ate everything up!

Beer was well priced at MOP20 per bottle, Mango Lassi (MOP32) was average. Gulab Jamun (MOP12 each) was fine and had the right taste, texture and expected sweetness (rating 3 of 5).

Overall, a very good tasting and good value for money option for Indian cuisine in Macau. Aruna's is an easily recommendable restaurant and a place we look forward to trying again soon.

“Indian food, really !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

This place is far from being a place I would visit again for Indian food. This restaurant was so far from the Indian restaurant hospitality that I have know and come to expect that it was quite shocking. The service was non existent and the food was mediocre at best. This really is a cafe pretending to be a restaurant. There seemed to be the owner sitting in the corner listening into the conversations at the adjoining tables and offering ''helpful'' suggestions on the wine etc without bothering to get up and approach the table concerned. Also nan in a basket covered with old foil, really ! this is not the 80's ! I get the impression that this place is living on past glory's...will not be going back.
