The view was wonderful bur sadly food was not. My husbands curry was far too salty. I had the Butter Chicken dish which was a great disappointment with very little chicken to be seen. It was not in anyway shape or form a 'Butter Chicken Curry'

I had a meal at this restaurant on Friday 20th March with another 7 family members. We all had a good time and we served excellent food. The owner was also happy to serve us a pineapple dish which was not on the menu. Perfect !!

Ended up here after finding the Indian Dining Club had closed down. This curry house has a fantastic view over Tolcarne Beach. The food doesn't quite live up to the view with the veggie versions of the normal curry range being a little light on the quantity of veg. The rice is frighteningly yellow, and the chutney tray frugal in... More

The Maharajah is by far the best Indian restaurant and takeaway in the area. I have lived in Newquay for 12 years and have never had a bad meal here. They even deliver which, in the summer is a bonus. Always very tasty food and very generous portions!!

Nice views from the restaurant but the food is bland and seems to all be made from the same base curry mix. Very disappointing - there are better in Cornwall.

Thank you for your review, we were sorry you were disappointed by your meal, all our dishes are created by professional chefs with the finest spices, for example our Garam masala comes from India. Depending on what you order, our dishes have varying levels of heat. None of them are “bland” but it depends on your personal preference, what dish... More
