The owner tells me that 'January is the earliest expected opening date'. The property... read more

After reading other reviews on here we weren't sure if the place would be open yet. Sadly it's not... We've visited before and we're really looking forward to going again, as it was brilliant last time, but it looks like they're undergoing repairs after last years fire. Fingers crossed it'll be open again soon. (Trip advisor - I know this... More

If your looking for an indian then look no further, this is the best indian in the bay, the food is sooooooo good and not expensive at all, the decor is not the best but i think that adds to the charm. Unfortunately the end of last year (2014) the business next door had a fire, which closed maha bharat... More

We have an unofficial curry club where I work which, as the name suggests, is a group who goes out regularly for a curry.. We've tried most indian restaurants in Torquay but none can touch Maha Bharats for quality, value and service.. If you want a curry then don't bother with going anywhere else...

Walked passed this restuarant several times and it was always busy. Could not get a booking the first night we stayed in Toquay but managed to get in our second night. Not disappointed. Great flavours, good choice on the menu and very friendly staff. Would eat here again.

Great looking restaurant and lots of choice on the menu. We both enjoyed our meals although be careful, husband always has a madras but even he struggled with it (spicy hot!) staff very friendly and place very clean. Would def return.
