Apparently, the Indian lunch buffet rules in Milwaukee.

After stirring things up early this month by making myriad changes in celebration of its 18th anniversary – including abolishing the weekday lunch buffet – Maharaja, 1550 N. Farwell Ave., has heeded popular opinion and brought back the popular lunch buffet option.

The weekday buffet, which will include over 20 items, including new and seasonal dishes, will return Monday through Friday starting this week.  The buffet will be $9 per person, and $4.50 for children.

Maharaja's Prince Singh says the new weekend brunch buffet – which it launched this past weekend – went over well, so the restaurant will continue offering it on Saturdays and Sundays. The brunch buffet, which is $18 per person and $8.50 for children, includes nonalcoholic beverages, bottomless bloody Marys and mimosas, along with over 40 Indian dishes.
