Beginning the meal are the exemplary appetisers. Separated into classical Indian and contemporary Pan Asian taste bud teasers, guests can pick and choose between them for a culturally diverse feast. Particularly delectable dishes include the enticing Mandarin Strips, golden fried chicken strips with a special sauce, the fiery chilli paneer, a traditional Indian cheese enriched with spices, and the delicious Imli Imli Imli, a medley of pan fried chicken, lamb and prawns in a sweet and sour sauce.
For the main course diners can decide between a cornucopia of curries, ranging from Balti to tandoori dishes, as well as a wealth of Pan Asian wonders, such as wok fried options. With such a startlingly varied selection diners will be spoiled for choice, yet some of the merit worthy meals include the irresistible grilled red mullet, partnered with coconut fried rice, the juicy rack of lamb, lightly spiced and cooked in a tamarind rich bhuna sauce, and the zesty Shatkora, chicken prepared with a sweet and sour citrus fruit.
Naturally there are an immense amount of vegetarian dishes, as well as some continental dishes for the spice averse, assuring that every member of the party will find something to please their palates at Mai Raj.
