Not only should Moiliili Hongwanji Buddhist Temple be visited, but also Cafe Maharani. Indian dishes are to be tried here. Order perfectly cooked cheese naans, lamb vindaloo and vegetable korma at this restaurant when you happen to be near it. Ordering good yogurt, asida and flija is a pleasant experience here. Take your chance to taste delicious marsala, beer or liqueur. Visit Cafe Maharani for great mango lassi, americano or masala chai.

At this place, you can get a takeout. Many guests find the staff hospitable. If you want to experience fine service, you should go to this spot. In accordance with the visitors' opinions, prices are adequate. There is a cool atmosphere and spectacular decor at this restaurant. But Cafe Maharani is not highly estimated by Google users who provided it a below average rating.

One star added for great friendly service and ambiance. Our server was really friendly and helpful. The naans are huge but thin, and usually naan is thick and fluffy, and there was barely any garlic. We ordered one garlic and one plain naan and I could hardly tell the difference. Portions are really generous so one curry item was more than enough for the two of us. We ordered onion pakora, which I’d been craving all day, papri chaat, and chicken tikka masala along with naan. The papri chaat was good, just a touch too hot (and I’m someone who eats a lot of hot food, so if it was too hot for me I can only imagine how it’s be for someone else with a lower tolerance). Onion pakora smelled and looked great but from the first bite tasted wrong, kinda bready actually, as if instead of using besan they’d used regular flour. I couldn’t even finish one piece even though I’d been craving it all day. The chicken tikka masala was kinda bland, not spicy or sweet, just creamy, and we didn’t enjoy it unfortunately. The chai was good, though they only had enough ingredients to make one. The presentation was also good; it’s a disappointment that the food wasn’t as good as the presentation and portion size. For context, my husband is Pakistani and I’m of Pakistani descent; we make and eat this kind of food regularly, and we currently live in Houston, which is a hub for Indian and Pakistani food. After a few days of craving our native flavors while being in Waikiki, we decided to try Cafe Maharani and were unfortunately disappointed. Between Cafe Maharani and Bombay Palace, unfortunately it appears that guests visiting Waikiki and Honolulu who long for authentic Desi food are at a loss. Additionally, Muslim diners should know that none of the meat is halal, though it is kosher. That was acceptable for us as I cannot currently eat seafood while my husband cannot eat lamb for medical reasons; it may not be for others.
