Started our dinner with Gobi Manchuria, cauliflower fried in tempura batter and further cooked in manchurian sauces. Then we shared a single portion of Methi Chicken which was cooked in a sauce made with fenugreek leaves. We accompanied our meal with very good Naan. Service has been very good at Maharaja since they have hired some staff. The place in... More

Found this close to our hotel. Had samosas and saag chicken with roti. Cooked fresh to order. Worth the wait!! Absolutely delicious. Just the right amount of spice. The owner is very friendly and when we asked if we could get a cab to pick us up, he offered To take us! What a lovely person. I would hope to... More

Went out for our Friday night dinner to Maharaja Indian Kitchen. We started with Samosa, which are Indian pastries stuffed with potatoes and peas and deep fried. Great appetizer. Then we shared Vegetable Jalfreizi made with bell peppers, tomatoes, and carrots in a spicy sauce. It was spicy enough at the "mild" level. We , also, shared Chicken Vindaloo, made... More

I always think of this as family dinner because my friends and I share everything at the table. We order a few different dishes and they give everyone a plate so you can dip/mix/stir/sample to your heart's desire. The naan bread is also wonderful. Service is great but the food is a bit slow so be prepared to wait (it's... More

We tried something different at Maharaja, last night, for dinner. As an appetizer, we had Gobi Manchuria, which is a well seasoned fried cauliflower. We ordered it at medium heat level, which was spicy enough. The complimentary dipping sauce which came with the chips was better that before - more flavorful and thicker. My wife had Channa Masala [Tomato, onions,... More

Have been to Maharaja Indian Restaurant several times before, and I almost always had their Vindaloo with Lamb. Vindallo is a curry like stew, with a meat and potatoes. It is always served with an aromatic Basmati Rice. My dining companion had Methe Chicken, which was excellent. We had Samosas as an appetizer, which was great as usual. The Naan... More

Had dinner at Maharaja again. Had Chicken Tandoori in the past, which was not great - made from diced chicken instead of whole pieces. This time we had cauliflower [gobi manchuria] as an appetizer and Tandoori Shrimp as a shared entree. The Tandoori was colored very red, sweet and with tiny shrimp. Not the best dish. We are giving up... More

This place is the only Indian joint in Oxford. If you want something different this might be the place for you but it is a bit expensive. The Naan is excellent.

During the last two visits, food and service have been excellent. Last week we had Methi Chicken, a curry with fenugreek, Channa Masala [tomatos, onions and chickpeas], and Lamb Vindaloo. Samosa were our shared appetizer. Maharaja has the several levels of heat or spicyness and the dishes came out at the proper level requested. Both the chicken and the lamb... More

This place has the worst food I've ever had and they simply refuse to improve the quality or standards. Just the fact that they're the only Indian restaurant in town so people who've never tasted Indian food elsewhere can't compare. Bad food. Strongly advise to not go.
