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

Have been eating here for the last 30 years. Once brilliant but general decline in quality over the years. last nights experience has finally triggered me to write a review of my dissapointment. I ordered the Lamb Ceylon and can honestly say it was the worst tasting curry i have ever had. It was just like supermarket curry powder mixed... More

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.

A nice little restaurant - good food and a nice range of options on the menu. Staff polite and attentive. Value OK given location. Watch the price of drinks if you want to keep your bill down to a sensible level !

Came here for food after work one evening with work colleagues. Food was nice, with plenty of options to choose from. However, the service was rather rushed and the table was already being cleared whilst people were still finishing their meals. Other than that, it was a nice meal.

I visited the Maharaja with a business client on Thursday 17th November and although the food was of reasonable quality, I was appalled by the poor and rushed level of service. I appreciate that they were busy, but each course overlapped the other without any any pause. As soon as I finished my last mouthful the waiter arrived with the... More
