Indian restaurant to take over former Mellow Mushroom in Herndon

An Indian restaurant appears to be taking over space in Herndon vacated by Mellow Mushroom last year.

As first reported by The Burn, Maharani Palace — which does not appear to have an online presence yet — expects to open at 1030 Elden Street, according to a sign posted at the door. 

Located in the Crossroads of Dulles office condominiums, the banquet-style restaurant will include a garden room, a room for gatherings, and something called a “Ghungroo Lounge,” the sign on the door says.

It’s unclear when the business is expected to open, but the signage indicates the location is “coming soon.” The restaurant doesn’t appear to have an online presence yet, as the website on the sign doesn’t work.

FFXnow reached out to Rock Creek Property Group, which owns the Crossroads of Dulles, but didn’t hear back by press time.

Mellow Mushroom, which served handcrafted pizzas and wings, closed in May 2023 after about a decade in Herndon.

The business continues to serve customers from its location with Chantilly, along with others throughout the country. A location is planned in Vienna, though it’s unclear when construction will start on the mixed-use development where it’ll be located.
