Indian curry and rice restaurant  in Takayama

There is a Indian and rice restaurant in Takayama

It is called Maharu. This place is popular to local people owned by people from Nepal.

My recommendation is Lunch menues.

It is 900yen. You can have nann as many as you want.

It is bit far from J-Hoppers.

If you rent a bicycle ,you can go !
