Great food, service and affordable.

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... read 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!

I think we just ordered wrong. We had the set menu £14.95 for 3 courses. Tandoori chicken and lamb samosas to start. Took a while to come, I think they were made fresh. No veg in samosas, tandoori not a depth of flavour, but still good. Chicken and lamb curry, you can choose chicken, lamb, beef and I think prawn... More

They offer great value for money, so if you are looking for a excellent and cheap meal, this is the place to go. It might not look like... More

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.

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
