Great food!

As people who love Indian, Maharaja is one of our favourite Indian restaurants in Malta. The food is always genuine and good, and the owners are very welcoming, and always ready to serve in the best ways possible. I highly recommend this restaurant!

I have been going to this restaurant regularly for the past month and I can honestly say that it was the best choice I made in a long time. They have quite a vast variety of dishes which can be modified to your heart's content, whether you want a different type of meat or how mild or spicy you would... More

My boyfriend and I are regulars at Maharaja and the reason is that we adore indian food and this is the best we've found in Malta. The decor is not my style, but very typically indian, but the owner, John, and his wife, are simply adorable. They always accept us even when they are about to close, the whatever we... More

I love this place. The food is simply delicious and the staff are so sweet and helpful. I'm a big fan of Indian food and I find this as the best Indian place in Malta and also the best from all the places that I've traveled to world wide (quite a few). My humble opinion. It never failed to disappoint... More

Walked in off the street and was given a table straight away - the place was busy with both seated 'eat-in' and take-away customers. Mediterranean service (not fast but attentive) and drinks were on the way whilst I browsed the menu. I chose Lamb Maharaja (mild spicy sauce) and Kashmiri rice (boiled with peas and Sultanas). The lamb was superb... More

very friendly & warm atmosphere, good tasty portions. But what I liked best were the owners. On the second visit we were celebrating a b'day and they gave us a complementary bottle of wine to take with us..
