On Aug. 26, 2014, I visited the restaurant at dinner time. I was ushered into a small restaurant on the ground floor instead of the spacious buffet upstairs promised by their website and which I remember from a previous visit a few years ago. When I asked what happened to the buffet upstairs, I was told that the upstairs is... More

My wife and I went for lunch yesterday and were extremely dissappointed. We will not be going back. The room where this restaurant has been for ever is closed or is to become a hotel or something, so a sign guided us to a small room at street level. Very small, and full of grade school kids (grade 5 and... More

Went here with some friends one morning when we were all hung over. Frankly the place is pretty run down, and the food is by no means special. BUT cmon people, you have to handle your expectations. If you walked into this place thinking youd get something great, youre probably the type of person who walks into bad restaurants often.... More

ABSOLUTELY THE WORST Indian restaurant I have ever been to. Pakora and Baji were so dry that they shattered like philo pastry when you bit them and required water to get them down. Samosa were burned around the edges. The yogourt sauce seemed to be watered down with something fizzy like club soda. All rices were so over cooked they... More

This restaurant claims to be halal- I sincerely doubt it is, the waiter staff weren't even sure if it was halal or not! It was empty and the food looked as though it had been out for a while...

I just got out of the restaurant and had to warn others to stay away. Firstly I had visited this place in 2008- the food was delicious THEN. I don't know what changed since 2008 but I have nothing positive to say about the place. The food is bland. Most of the curries have a similar base. The food is... More

This Indian Buffet has been around for many years but over the last few years it's gone downhill. Still very good value but service and cleanliness is an issue. All the staples are good Butter Chicken , Tandori , Beef Vindalo . Don't have high expectations and you will be pleased

Our family ate lunch at Maharaja restaurant…ABSOLUTELY the WORST tasting Indian food. What a WASTE of money. While paying, when we told waiter, he smirked and retorted rudely: “everyone has an opinion”—no regret whatsoever. The curries were cold, tasteless, only Matar Paneer was any good. So were Papad & Onion rings. Nans were cold, palak paneer had uncooked palak, even... More
