Food tasted awful, Naan was uncooked and was barely edible. Everything we ordered tasted sweet. Looks like it is not even run by Indians, it is more like Bangladeshi.. or whatever.. definitely not Indian. Name is 'Maharaja' to just attract the folks looking for Indian food.

Top of it, the guy is upset we paid through credit card, he was asking for cash. Purposely made us wait to process the credit card. Highly disappointed. Stay away.

Food was generally ok, however, I've never seen paying customers treated so rudely throughout. the guy running the place took 30 minutes to get one lady a tap water (he was clearly unimpressed she didn't want the mineral water) and he told others basically what to order.

If I had read the reviews on here I would not have dreamt of it but we found staff to be very helpful and friendly. We asked for some changes to the published menu which were happily accommodated and all our dishes tasted delicious.

A cramped black spot on the name of Indian Hospitality. The staff is so rude and ill mannered that even if you like the food (highly unlikely) you will still regret visiting the place. To top it all they charge you the optional service charge and would argue about it as if they deserve it. If only there was negative rating I would have definitely used the option.

Although the vegan movement is racing on apace, sometimes I have to accept a vegetarian option. The Vegetable Biriany and Takar Dal served at the Maharaja of India hit the spot - no frills, prompt service at an affordable price - great for a lunchtime when you're on a limited time window.
