Very Very Poor Service as we placed an order and was served 1 hour post order. Then when served was given spoilt (totally off meat) which almost made me vomit and feel sick. Order was returned. Upon bill paying, was getting charged for the spoilt...food as well which has initiated this review as basic courtesy should atleast tell the servers/owners to take off what has a. Not been consumed and b. A major error made by the chef and/or kitchen A lot of people kept waiting for orders and ended up leaving with disappointment. It was our last day in Hobart which has now left us with a really bad taste. A lot of better (and cheaper) options available around (and u may as well sleep hungry than having crap)More

The venue is pretty erm, uninspiring, but the food is pretty good and the prices are in line with what you'd expect.

We are long term patrons of this restaurant - it was once our ‘go to’ for curries and authentic Indian cuisine. We could no longer forgive the uncomfortable chairs and long wait times plus lack lustre service. Having resorted to take away only, we have...finally given up completely. Our latest meals contained more fat and gristle than meat and the flavour was simply lacking. The wait staff are more interested in their phones than their customers. What a sad end. Where will I find a great Kashmiri Naan now??More

We frequently go here for takeaway with great tasting food but i have to admit the dine-in experience was lack lustre at best. No papadums on arrival despite other tables receiving them (free with takeaway), no mint yoghurt with entrees (as provided with takeaways), no...choice whatsoever on banquet, charge on chilli powder(!), and not providing account when asked. Should have got takeaway and done the washing up!!!More

Had a nice family lunch here, shared multiple dishes, all of them bursting with flavours. Definitely recommend!

There’s a decent amount of competition among Indian restaurants in Hobart, and I suspect the Bathurst St location, off the main drags and with no view to speak of, does Maharaja a disservice. But within the unappealing exterior it offers an extensive choice of southern...and northern dishes across all courses, in an intimate upstairs setting. It’s often difficult for some of us to appreciate the subtle differences in Indian cuisine, so I’ll give a shout-out to the Maharaja for its Chicken Himayu, cooked with onion, capsicum, crushed black pepper and “chef’s special spices”. This was precisely what I hoped for – every ingredient played its part, and the spices made this dish just that little bit greater than the sum of its parts. And I couldn’t argue with change from $17 for an authentic main coursed cooked exactly to my medium-hot preference.More

Very good attentive service. Six of us chose different meals from a well presented menu. The range of curries allowed each of us to choose the the type and the degree of heat we each preferred. And with our main meals we each chose a...fair number of extras. Some of us needed a few explanations about our choices and also need to discuss our various dietary requirements. Our waitress was very friendly, informative and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. We also found that lunch is available and take-aways every day. I made a note in my diary.More

Incredibly busy however they made space despite not having a booking. What I would call a perfect local, appropriately priced. Will not disappoint if you simply want good honest Indian fare.

Generous portion, great value, fabulous food and drinks and good service. The lamb is a must try and the beef maharaja was so tender and tasty. We think this is the best Indian food in Hobart so far. Highly recommended and we will definitely come...back soon!More

Hi I wrote a review and am not the actual restaurant...but I do think they do have vegan options. Not sure if it’s open now after a recent fire
