When it comes to the menu, everything is made fresh. There are plenty of veggie and even vegan options. Among the more popular menu items is the saag paneer curry as roti. Wrapped in a large fresh roti shell are potatoes, homemade paneer, and pureed spinach mixed in with a creamy sauce and strong garlic flavourings. Customer be warned – the portions can be quite large. If you don’t have a large appetite, there’s enough here to spread over two meals and is well worth the purchase price.

Almost anything on the menu can be made to varying degrees of spice – ‘mild’, ‘medium’, and ‘hot’. If you don’t like things too spicy, going with the medium can help keep things comfortable. Pairing your meal with an appropriate drink, such as a sweet mango lassi, can also help offset some of the spicy-ness. Then again, if spicy is your thing, go ‘hot’ and find a heat coming off your food that you can really enjoy!

Another popular menu item at Maurya East Indian Cuisine in Liberty Village is the butter chicken with rice. Boneless chicken breast is cooked in a special makhani sauce and is nestled into a plate of basmati rice. There are a lot of similar, duplicate businesses that attempt the same type of thing such as the Roti Cuisine of India and Butter Chicken Roti but there’s nothing quite like something closer to the original Indian recipe.

Despite its tasty menu, Maurya East Indian Roti has been hit with mixed reviews in the past mainly related to its customer service. That said, the majority of customers that have walked into this restaurant have come out highly satisfied with their purchases, all rich and full of flavour. Throughout the past year, the owners have continued to improve upon their customer service experience. This is well worth a visit if you are seeking to try a new take-out place. If you have never had spicy Indian before, going with something under ‘mild’ is best recommended as some of the menu items can get quite hot. It’s best to air on a side of caution with this.

Liberty Village does not have very many restaurants in the same category as Maurya East Indian Cuisine, making them a welcome addition to the growing neighborhood network. Browse from a list of golden samosas, roti, butter chicken, and more, and make a plate for yourself to devour! If you are looking for a new place to try or want somewhere to pop in for some lunch on an early afternoon, Maurya East Indian Cuisine is an excellent choice.
