Sheesh Mahal is a local favorite for fresh, made-to-order Indian cuisine. The clientele is fiercely loyal with a staple set of regulars.

There’s an extensive buffet for diners who want to a try a little of everything. If you prefer to choose a specialty dish, you can also order from the massive menu and choose your spice level. Opt for classic south Indian dishes like poori masala, medu vada, and chicken tikka masala. If you’re in the mood for something different, you can also opt for one of the Indo-Chinese specials like schezwan chicken, chili paneer or garlic shrimp.
Gopuram Taste of India is never too far to grab a little takeout. If you prefer to dine in, you can enjoy the ambiance of themed dining rooms, ranging from the romantic Taj Mahal room for two to the British room with space for six.

Ajanta Cuisine of India boasts of being the first Indian restaurant in OKC, serving the city for over 24 years.

All-white meat is available for an extra charge on all chicken dishes, creating a nice option for those who want a lighter meal.
