Nice Restaurant with good service

Ok, so we visited an Indian restaurant whilst in France! I'm glad we did. The food and service was very good and very reasonably priced for the location. It was also nice to see local people eating there, as well as tourists. Well worth a visit for a pleasant lunch.

The Maharadja is located next to the castle main entrance. This is probably the only advantage. Although service was fast and kind, food proved very difficult to digest (we all had to do a long night walk to eliminate calories) as dishes were served with high-fat sauces and dressing. As we are used to excellent Indian food in Dubai, we... More

One evening, out of curiosity, we headed to an eatery that calls itself an Indian restaurant - Le Maharaja, which it turned out, was run by Bangladeshis... The food itself was bad, no way closer to what Indian cuisine is. The naan was very crisp and not soft and fluffy as it is supposed to be. The daal (lentil gravy)... More

Excellent, moderately priced, delicious. Went back on two successive nights and should have gone again! Very reasonably priced. Not fancy décor but not needed with such excellent cuisine.

My husband and I enjoyed our meal here. Although it was busy we were served very quickly. My husband felt the food was a little bland compared to what he was used to but my meal was alright.

We visited this restaurant on our travel to Fontainebleau. a small restaurant with not so bad ambience. Though this restaurant is named Maharajah to have the feel of an Indianness it is run by Bangladeshi people. They offered lamb curry to my friend he swears by taste that it was beef. We were happy to have Kingfisher beer, an indian... More

Food was good and wide choice. There were different types of set menu: EUR 10, 15, 20 per person. It was lunch time, so we went with 1st option and it was enough to get full.

We found that decent restaurant just on the corner and got really surprised about the prices (fair prices), the good service (if you compare it to other restaurants with same prices), and the delicious food! I had the chicken tikka with cheese naan and it was fantastic. I found enough reason to return one day;)

I am surprised to find I'm the first one to review this restaurant on TA. It's very good fare for lunch time. The food is well prepared, reasonably priced and it is a nice break from those busy Parisian restaurants. It is right across the street from the Palace entrance. Worth a stop if you´re looking for something more substantial... More
