Austin Indian Restaurant G’Raj Mahal reopens in East Austin


Closed Rainey Street Indian restaurant G’Raj Mahal is now reopening in Austin. The former Rainey Street spot will now be at 2207 Alamo Street in the Blackland neighborhood starting later this year.

G’Raj founder and chef Sidney Roberts is reviving his restaurant with help from the relatively new restaurant group Hospitality todaywho consists East Austin’s Salt & Time butcher and restaurant, wine bar and boutique, and bagel company Rosen’s Bagels.

The focus of the menu will remain the same: Indian and Texan fusion dishes. Expect new items like beef brisket tikka masala (which makes sense given the Salt & Time connection), smoked tandoori chicken, and Frankies (Indian burritos made with roti). In addition, there will be wine, beer and soft drinks. This new G’Raj will offer indoor and outdoor catering services, as well as take-out.

Roberts opened G’Raj in 2009 originally as a food truck, then turned it into a brick-and-mortar restaurant in 2014. The restaurant’s lease was actually just before the pandemic in January 2020, but its landlord allowed it to continue operating until July 2021, when it officially closed. (This address is in the process of becoming a new brewery.) It has also expanded with the South First Indian restaurant Mumtaz Market. on South First in October 2020.
