Quick service.

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

Ordered a tandoori mix starter followed by a chicken Nepal curry and garlic naan. Chicken and fish were over cooked for the starter and main. Naan was cold and covered in burnt garlic pieces, so no taste of garlic on the bread. All food lacked taste. Curry had four pieces of curry and copious amounts of sauce. Very disappointing.

The restaurant is well located close to INSEAD. The spread is quite good. The food tastes quite good. I had Nan and Chicken Dopiyaza which were very well prepared and tasty.

The restaurant is packed with people and we need to squeeze in. The menu is extensive, the portions not too big. They offer to serve rice but I like to eat the meat with a warm naan bread. The waiters do a good job in the small restaurant.

Nice service. Choice within the menu is very good. It smells well when you are just around the restaurant what shows that experience will be good. We were outside, so no problem of noise and just looking to Napoleon Castle. Good place to eat, with very small prices.
