Food Photo Friday - G'raj Mahal

Most of the dishes at G'raj Mahal, while delicious, are not particularly photogenic. Chunks of protein swimming in sauce and served in a cardboard bowl do not make for the most compelling photos (but don't think I didn't try).

The exception is their rack of lamb, which is cooked to tender perfection in their tandoor oven. This dish is now going to be a staple every time I visit G'raj Mahal, along with their fantastic beef kashmiri, which was far less sweet and delivered more of a kick than I expected. If you go in search of these dishes - which you should - try not to arrive at peak hours, as they curtail their lamb tandoor production when it's too busy.

Tasty, tender, spicy goodness on a plate.

On the other hand, if you're there when it's not too crowded, you might feel more intimidated by the critters that make up the Austin Bike Zoo. They are typically hanging around G'raj Mahal, casting their beady eyes upon the diners, plotting their next move.

Quietly encircling the unwary masses.

Sweet butterfly bicycle, or creepy alien food-stealer? You decide.


  1. Creepy alien food-stealer. That place looks so awesome!

  2. Never heard of this place.. Really want to try it now! =) Love the photos, Michelle!

  3. Their critters are hilarious and awesome at the same time. Unfortunately, Indian food has a lot of pistachios in their sauces, and my husband is allergic to nuts, and especially pistachios. Looks amazing -- I will have to enjoy it vicariously through you!

  4. Can't wait for the next installment of our Sunday G'raj series. Need more lamb!
