Visited this restaurant whilst on business Food was authentic, portions were large and reasonably priced Chicken Tikka masala originally created for the British was flavoursome and was creamy Sadly for me they did not do Tarka dall, but not an issue at all Started with poppadum with lovely salad sweet chilli sauce Lovely and different from menus from UK

Having lunch there (tikka-masala chicken). A reasonably priced and very tasty, hot enough. Very much like in India though I have visited only Goa. If you seek a true Indian cuisine in Helsinki, I believe you won't be dissapointed choosing this one.

I invite frequently my friends to have an evening out and enjoy the Maharaja food. If you are more than two persons, I recommend a table reservation. The three-alternative-menus are good, and there are many alternatives for vegetarians and people with lactose-free or gluten-free diets.

Nice and fresh restaurant with great food. 2 people and we ordered 2 mixed plates. We wanted to order deserts right away but was told to wait... now we know why, BIG plates and it tasted great, couldn't fit desert unfortunately. The waiter could easy sold in that to us but didn't! Very professional. All this 56€. Great!

This lunch dish had the taste I liked. Even the pea sause which normally is quite mild was now extremily spicy and rich in flavour! Great!

One of the good Indian cousin in Helsinki. They serve good north India style food though bit expensive at Euro 23 for Non-veg Thali. Big seating place, can seat 80-90 people. Palak paneer and Nan are good. Good size bar. Staff was bit arrogant.They did not have restaurant card instead when I asked gave me 15% discount card. Busy place.... More

The quality of food has collapsed. Vegetarian foods are almost tasteless. One waitress is indifferent, whilest the rest two are even openly hostile. Male waiters vary from indifferent to nice. I was a regular for years, but the latest visit will remain my last one. The sallad that it is included in the meals “had run out”. It was not... More

We went for lunch and found the food to be good authentic North Indian food . Specially the vegetarian was better than the non vegetarian. The place is not very large but okay. The service was good and efficient.

Nice restaurant serving authentic Indian cuisines and delicacies well stocked bar. Helpful staff. In case you are going on special diet like, low salt, do advise the staff in advance and choose the dishes accordingly. Comfortable place to accommodate 70 to 80 persons. Masala chicken was good. The Nan is really big though does not match the traditional North Indian... More
