Arrived and were seated quickly, orders taken and drinks arrived quickly. Ordered popodoms which were good, they brought out a selection of dips which were very bland. We were charged £2.50 extra for them we found out later. Tandoori chicken starter was very bland and very poorly spiced.The mains were lacking in spice and flavour. The rice was very dry... More

I was staying at the Great Western next door so called in for a meal. Very good food, slightly tired building, friendly staff, good service. I will call in again when next in town, on buisiness.

Read reviews on here and decided to give it a go. As a vegetarian we often get bum deals when it comes to choice but there was plenty to choose from. Food was delicious, well priced and the staff were friendly. They even sang happy birthday to me. Would highly recommend. Thank you for a lovely meal.

Excellent food and first class service. A convivial atmosphere in a beautiful setting. The food could not be faulted with portions that would satisfy the largest of appetites.

Ordered a takeaway for 4 people and was told it was a 30 minute wait. Fair enough but, we weren't even offered a complimentary drink while we waited. I asked for a can of coke and was told it would be £1.30. Food not great either as was cold by the time we travelled the 10 mins home and our... More

Lovely clean restaurant food plentiful and hot .. Not as spicy hot as menu suggests (maybe it's because we're used to curries from Midlands).. Worth a visit.

Big choice of non- meat dishes, I had the dal and sag paneer - fantastic. The owner is vegitarian so he's keen to offer these options. The staff are really friendly and the it must have the best view of any Indian restaurant in England! Right on the seafront, there are spectacular clifftop views - which are even better at... More

Third time we have eaten at the Maharajah and the food has been spot on every time. We will always book a table here for one night during our visit to Newquay as we have never been disappointed. All the staff are friendly and polite although do seem a little rushed at times, maybe it's just the pace they work... More
