Being in such close proximity to the wonderful restaurant can be torture! The wonderful smells begni to interrupt work around 4:30pm and from them you can imagine all the tasty ingredients being prepared, so it is with no surprise that we regularly find ourselves tucked into one of the alchove seats inside! A favourite early Friday snack for the ICM... More

My daughter and I stopped for dinner here on our first day visiting and stopped for two reasons, 1 I had never had Indian food, 2 they had white table clothes. Service, food and atmospher were all lovley. I would go back over and over if I was in the area. Great job guys!

We had a wonderful time at Maharani last night. The staff were very attentive and keen to make our evening memorable which they achieved. We were a group of 15 but our size did not phase the staff and our meals were very tasty. Highly recommended. Thank you Manik and team. Hope to return soon.

Went to the Maharani for the first time tonight & will definitely be going back. What a menu, so much choice & some new regional dishes to try! We couldn't fault anything, from the food to every member of staff we met who couldn't have be friendlier. Thank you for a memorable evening, think we will be regulars from now... More

Always had a good meal here. The food is cooked to order and arrives piping hot and full of flavour. The menu is very extensive giving an amazing choice. We could come here every week for a year and always have something different. Add to these the friendly atmosphere and service and you have a great combination which keeps us... More
