Once upon a tiime two brothers ran a restaurant called "Passge Thru India". They had a disagreement and one brother took the brand name and opend a restaurant in Leith Street, Georgetown. The other brother kept the building and re-named the restaurant Maharaj. Iy is a great restaurant and is very popular with visitors to Penang - but it is not listed in Georgetown restaurants.
