It is an outdoor eatery. They have a kitchen truck and the eating area is gravel covered in a tent. I was there by myself. The portion was big and I was not able to sample many flavors. To me, food was just OK. The atmosphere was not a good match for me at that time.

But, there is this one thing. Rose Lassi. I never had it before and I kept thinking about it after I came home. It was brilliant.

The name of the place makes it worth a visit! If you want luxury this is not the place for you, however we really enjoyed the experience. The food and service were excellent. The food is served on paper plates, the floor is gravel and the 'restaurant' is covered but has no walls. If you want great Indian food, good prices and a different dining experience this is the place to come. It's great!

I am lucky to have a wonderful friend whose mother makes me delicious Indian Cuisine, therefor I am normally disappointed by Indian Restaurants. G'Raj Mahal is the first Indian Restaurant where I actually would choose to go eat at again. Samosas were divine. THe riata helped balance the intense flavor of the three entrees our table of four split. We loved the tiki masala Chicken and the Kashmiri Lamb. The star of our meal was the Malia Kofta whose "dumplings" were complimented by the most delectable sauce. I think I could drink this sauce. The atmosphere here was relaxed and fun. We forget to bring our alcohol for BYOB but did not miss it. Friends told us that they often get their meal to go and eat it across the street at Clive's Bar. I cannot recommend this place enough!

if you love indian food, this is the place. granted i havent been to many others in austin...well, only one other now that i think about it, but once you eat here there is no need to check out the others unless its raining outside. its byob which i like. outside, which is great if the weather is great. the staff is friendly. the food is perfect. if you like spicy get the fish....i dont remember the name of the dish but it comes in a red vinegary sauce that is amazing.
put it on your list when in austin!
also, its within walking distance to some of the best bars in town.
