I have been to many local and international Indian restaurants and this visit was far the worst. Every curry in veg thali tasted exactly the same - it felt like the chef just threw in lots of spices with no understanding of what goes well...More

This restaurant has a large variety of indian dishes. The mix of appetizers was tasty. The tandoori chicken was excellent. Good indian beers. Good service as well.

This is a large Indian restaurant in an old pub and has some good features but it does feel like you have stepped back to the 1970 - including those garish pictures of 1970s colour cook books. So what works The Food - I ordered...More

Food was excellent as always. Service is dismal - the staff are unfriendly, unhelpful and give you the impression they want you out of the restaurant as quick as possible. What a shame when the food is so good - don’t think I will be...More

Food was as expected but nothing above what's expected, but given the price level I would say it's absolutely a good choice.

Good, honest Indian food, but the service staff could be more friendly towards the diners. We have been eating there on a frequent and regular basis. Every time we feel the same way about the food and the service.

Eaten here on various occasions, and often take-away. Food is nice and very tasty. There is room for improvement service / friendlyness towards its clients.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Hello May I ask which are your favourite amazing dishes at the Maharajah as I am always looking for a great Indian restaurant for large groups? Is it possible for any visitor to the Maharajah to have a cigarette and have lovely conversations outside with the chef to thank him for the delicious food? That seems a very special thing to have the chance to do. Maybe you only can do that if you are a close friend or relative of the restaurant owners or staff. Also, do you have any special recommendations for the amazing, authentic Indian food served there? I look forward to your reply.
