Lovely place. It is below the Indian embassy. Had a chance to meet the owner- very nice guy. Also, I watched a Brazilian lady, who had worn a saree and payal, dancing to the tunes of Indian songs. It is just not a place to have Indian food but to experience India. The owner wants to promote India and Indian... More

Wonderful environment, great service, good food. Mutton Rogan Josh was really good, nans were perfect. Service is attentive without being obstrusive. The place is beautiful. There are not much Indian food joints in Brazil, but Maharaj does not relax with the low competition level. Great place.

Maharaj has everything to be a great resto, starting with the most important: food is pretty good. For Indian cuisine in Brazil, that's already a winner. Ambience is also charming -- you are at an Indian consulate, you can't ask for more really. Yet it took them almost an hour to serve the mains on a Saturday 10pm --no less... More

Food is purely authetic, hospitality is awesome. It is the place where you will like to have home food out of home. Thanks Maharaj to make me feel home on my visit to Belo.

The food quality is amazing. The service is good as well, the price is a little bitty high but the quality pays for it. No doubt a must go for everyone!

No reservation. Show up at 8. About 1/2 full. Got the big screen with the typically absurd funBollywood movie action nearby so that is a decent distraction. We order the Thali. Thali is Thali. There is no art to it. You know what you are getting and the kitchen knows what to prep and prepare and cook. I have been... More

Having resd some of the favourable reviews and it being in walking distance we decided to give it a go. Well during our lengthy wait (2hrs) other people had walked out complaining of poor food and service so we we weren't expecting much but stuck it out.the starters were ok if a bit on the bland side the main meals...

The restaurant has two different ambiences, one closed and one open. If you do not like incense choose the open one. The restaurant interior in both ambiences is nice and it shows the colorful Indian culture with Indian music playing cheerful all the time, beautiful sculptures, paintings, it's a nice place. The presentation of the dishes looked very nice and... More
