The Maharajah is a little outside the city centre but is well worth finding. The staff are really friendly and accommodating, from waiter to manager. The menu has moments of interest, including some excellent vegetarian options. The decor is traditional and bright. It's a bit...More

The decor is very colourful and patterned, but comfortable. The food tasted amazing. I was thinking 'surely this is worth top marks' - but unfortunately we suffered afterwards with massive indigestion, so it's unlikely we'll go back until that memory fades. The staff were very...More

Visited maharajah last night with family and was disappointed. Popadoms fairly expensive and the pickle tray doesn't come with raiti. Mango chutney tasted like it was from a jar rather than homemade. We skipped starters and went straight for mains... Lamb tikka masala was mostly...More

The service was not great from start to finish. We found the waiter to be quite blunt when taking the order and this attitude continued throughout the meal. We ordered a malayan and a dansak - I cannot speak for what is an authentic malayan...More

It has been some time since I ventured to the Maharajah but I came across good reviews and was shocked to see 5 out of 5 scores! It went in there in November to celebrate a friend's birthday. I asked for a spicy curry which...More

We were hesitant to come here because of the reviews, but when a local recommended it, we decided to try it out. At first the staff was somewhat unfriendly, but they warmed up when we asked for help in ordering (we are somewhat inexperienced with...More
