I have been to the Maharaja many times, with my family or work colleagues. I keep returning here and recommending it to my friends because of the genuine tasty indian food, generous portions and courteous host. If you love Indian food, you must definitely come here and experience the quality and portion size. If you have never tried Indian food,... More

Felt like a night out but nothing too serious. Maharaja fit in well although for some it might be too shabby it fit the bill as the food was very good.

We recently stayed in the Strand hotel Sliema and found this curry house just a few yards from it. Over the week we stayed we ate there four times as the food was really great, service brilliant and the price very good. Used to live in malta and this is the best curry house there. Many thx to the staff... More

OK I had the vindaloo but it did bring me out in a sweat. Too many curries in Malta are beyond bland! The lassi was excellent too!

This is one of my favourite restaurants, my friend and I have lost count of the times we have visited over the years, not only when we feel like an Indian meal but even on special days. The service and food is great and they have a wide selection of meals to choose from. Apart from that, they have good... More

Here's a stellar little Indian restaurant: somewhat humble, true, though with a cuisine and an atmosphere that genuinely come from the heart. The chicken tikka starter was the most tasty I have actually had virtually anywhere! Have a go at the wonderful seafood dishes or the gorgeous prawn biryani for a main course. Moreover they offer two types of Indian... More

Enjoyed a meal here Nov 2013. Came back to Malta in Sep/Oct 2014 for 12 nights and ate out here 3 times. As has been mentioned, the place can be quite busy, but the staff are wonderfully polite and attentive, and the atmosphere is good, so the occasional extra bit of waiting was not an issue. Food excellent - we... More
