Being one of the most beautiful birds in the world and a native of the Indian sub-continent it is not strange that the peacock was chosen to be the national bird of the world's largest democracy. In India the peacock can roam free as it is revered as the symbol of Lord Krishna. This fact is the reason that in forest bordering fields and villages these birds may eat out of your hands. An interesting fact is that the mating season of the peacock coincides with the monsoon season of the sub-continent. During this time both male and female utter loud meowing call. The Indians interpret these calls as "minh-ao" which means "there will be rain". Peacocks tend to call more frequently before imminent thunderstorms. Our Aim Our aim is to provide genuine and authentic Indian cuisine to our customers at reasonable rates. We strive for prompt, efficient and courteous service to leave an impressionable mark on our customers. The Genesis The qwest for quality Indian cuisine augmented with superior customer service prompted the founders of Mayuri to start this venture about almost an year ago. The posh and scenic Las Colinas has been picked up as the location owing to its growing popularity and easy reachability from all the corners of the city. Since its inception Mayuri has won accolades from its loyal customers and the print media alike.
Mayuri came highly recommended by a couple of friends and I am glad to say that it did not disappoint. The restaurant is on Las Colinas Blvd and you can park at the back of the building in the parking lot.
The ambience in the restaurant is OK, nothing too fancy. They had a good selection of North Indian and South Indian items. The prices were reasonable. We tried the Baingan Bhartha, Bhindi Masala, Chicken Tikka Masala and Chicken Mayuri. The Bhindi Masala was a little weird. It was more like a bhindi fry and quite dry. The other items were quite tasty. The quantities were also reasonable and we ended up taking some of the food back home.
Overall, I would recommend the place. The menu has a few typos and can make for some entertaining reading, especially the
Sambar (one Bowel). That still cracks me up.
