It's been years since I've had Indian food, so we stopped here for the buffet. Unfortunately it was in the afternoon in the last hour of the buffet, so the selections were picked over and not very hot. The Naam (?) bread served at the table, however, was delicious. The waiter was very friendly and polite, water was refilled regularly... More

Decided to try something new while in Madison - so we stopped in for a noon, lunch buffet. Tables and dinnerware were clean and food was good, with a nice variety. I'll point out that the food was also fresh and labeled on the buffet. Servers were attentive to refill beverages and take plates. I eat Indian food 6-8 times... More

Awesome food here and complimentary mango ice cream! Love this place - a total gem in a strip mall on the east side. Id recommend the Baignan Bartha and the shahi paneer - super yum.

I tried this place 3 times. Once for takeout, another time for dine-in & third time for buffet. I was not really impressed with ala-carte menu but buffet was awesome. There were so many items in buffet & all of them were almost perfect. I would say - best place in Madison for buffet. Keep it up.

Enjoyed dinner here with my husband and a good friend on a Saturday. I had called ahead and was told no reservation was necessary. We were seated upon arriving. None of us had been to an Indian restaurant for quite some time so we needed some guidance. Although the menu is quite extensive, we all were most interested in the... More

The name on the door and the menu was Maharana at 1707 Thierer Rd in Madison. We stopped on a Sunday on our way back to our hotel after seeing a matinee performance at the Overture Center. We pulled up out front at 4:30 PM and saw the restaurant did not open until 5 PM. The owner must have seen... More

Took a first timer to our favorite Indian restaurant, I had a spicy lamb dish great as usual, and she tried bariyani vegetable dish she enjoyed it, so we have another to go with us

I'm surprised by some of the negative reviews of the Maharajah, and I'm sorry that those customers have had bad experiences there. My family and I have been going to the Maharajah for around 12 or 13 years, and have not had a bad experience in the restaurant. There have been a couple of occasions when the selections on the...

My family and I (kids ages 9, 7 and 4) were in Madison for the day. We happened across the Maharaja in a strip mall. We all enjoyed the lunch buffet. There were plenty of choices and the spicy dishes were labeled so we could avoid those. The coconut soup was delicious! It's certainly not fancy, but the food was... More

I am a big food lover and always try new restaurants. Have been to this restaurant and was very very depressed with the stale food and bad customer service. I went for a buffet with family( wife and two kids) and my younger one all of sudden in middle of the night started throwing up and even vomitted some blood... More
