Very tasty well presented Indian food

This is genuinely an Indian Restaurant the proprietor coming from the southern Indian state of Karola. Each dish is so flavorsome. It's odd to say that the Indian food is as good as you can get in the United Kingdom (England). Here you can have a good feast with trimmings and drinks for €25

Me and my friends have been coming here for quite some time now (around 3 years). The food is exceptional and the service is good and fast. Great selection of Indian dishes.

One of my two favourite Indian restaurants on the island. The food and service are consistently very good. I find the curries a little creamy overall, but not so much that I don't still eat there ALL THE TIME. Love it.

Typical Indian back street décor, good Indian food at the right price, pleasantly surprised... Location on the Gzira/Sliema Seafront setting your scene. I would go again to sample other dishes...

Indian food on the island is rather pricey, and yet, Maharajah offers top notch food at very decent prices. Warning...MAY cause addiction!

Very good restaurant but slow service :( Friendly staff :) I would prefer if other dishes are offered with the set menu instead of only curry. Also if desert would be diffent with set menu instead of only ice cream.

I must say not the best Indian food I have ever had but still very good. The service was good, professional and friendly perhaps another waiter/waitress would have enhanced the visit. The restaurant was "cozy" and suitable for all types of guests. I just had a curry and soft drink but pleasantly surprised with the overall views. I would go... More
