If you fancy a curry when staying here Maharajah Indian is only a stones throw away from the hotel. Although we didn't visit to eat we would have done if stayed longer. It looked lovely a beautiful glass fronted building very modern and quite new looking. Great for the visiting surfers no doubt.

Every thing tasted great. My boyfriend loved it but I found it far too spicy and ate 3 cardamon pods in a row by mistake so that kind of ruined it for me!! Obviously that's just down to personal preference. Slow service but it was very busy.

Phoned up and ordered at 19:00, told to collect 19:30-40. Called in and paid for food at 19:27, told 'food ready in another 10 minutes' (My family waiting in the car outside). Asked again every 15 minutes! Eventually given food with no explanation or apology at 20:35, over an hour later. If I had been told to collect at 20:35... More

We’d like to apologise that there was a delay in collection of your take away. As each dish is made to order from fresh ingredients they can sometimes take longer than estimated.
