Excellent as Usual

Been visiting this restaurant every time we come down to Mawgan Porth. Food is excellent, service is brilliant. My partner is vegetarian and they have a great selection of veggie food. Highly recommended is the Paneer Makhini. If you like Indian food and are anywhere near Newquay this place is an... read more

Ordered food for delivery. Food was delivered an hour after the order placed. Some of the meals were not as stated on the menu, tomato based meal with the tomato missing! Also far too much salt in which ruined any other flavour! In all not a good Indian restaurant.

The rude service received spoilt the really good food. We were totally ignored from the time we walked in until the time we had to go to the desk and ask for our bill. From ordering drinks to ordering food we had to call someone each time and were treated with abruptness verging on rudeness. Did we smell of something?

My husband and I dined there to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, it was absolutely delicious. The service was excellent and we enjoyed the stunning views from this restuarant. We would definitely recommend this, it's an excellent restuarant.

We have had better Indian food than this and definitely better quality food. I guess its popular as being the only few Indian restaurants in Newquay. It was a long wait before we got a table upstairs with obviously no views and the food took another hour to come out. Not the best quality, taste was okay if you have... More

A variety of Indian dishes and a great view from the place whilst you eat - are the pluses of this restaurant.. food was fine a bit oily for my taste but overall no complaints.. prices though are central London standards - so just be prepared to spending as much

Great food, great service. Yes, they were keen to hurry us along but we took our time. After all, it is a business and it was a full restaurant during peak season. Spoke to the owner on our way out, a down-to-earth, great bloke. Would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant and will return.

As a former NQY resident, now living away for work I always try to visit Maharajah when back in NQY. Always great food & service but the fact that the boss still serves customers after all his years in NQY shows he takes pride in his establishment & I think guarantees that you won't be disappointed with the food or...

I decided to come here with my boyfriend for a nice dinner on our last night in newquay. We got seated and a waitress asked if we wanted poppadoms and sauce. I asked for mint sauce and she said it's a selection. No cost involved...later found out this cost us £2.50 and it tasted out of date. We ordered our... More
