Went there for dinner with my family for quite a few times now and always walked out satisfied. Some of our favourite dishes are the palak paneer and the alu chana masala, which I highly recommend for the full experience at this restaurant. An essential place to visit on the island.

A family run business. Went for dinner and had the chicken tikka masala, jeera rice and the cheese nan. I have been to many Indian restaurants around the island and i can honestly say that this is the best one.I highly recommend this place if you are looking for affordable, delicious Indian food and friendly service.

The service was also good, which showed also in very efficient serviceof near-seated 20+ family group which did not delay our food even for a minute. Sad that... More

I love my Indian food and there's just one restaurant in Malta I keep on going back to... and that's Maharaja. The proprietor and his family will look after you and the atmosphere is relaxed. The food is delicious and the portions generous, so much so that at times it's best to share. Prices are very reasonable especially compared to... More

The place faces Manoel Island Bridge on the Strand and is next door to Maxim's pastizzerija. The outside is a bit off-putting with its plasticised dish menus but once inside the meals are very very reasonably priced, made the proper Indian way, and the whole place has a very Indian charm. Amazing Bollywood videos looping in the background!
