Friendly, attentive , respectful of their patrons, etc. etc. they deserve a huge success as they outperform in all aspects. The food is very much Indian and not "Indian-westernised" . We have tried several dishes and all were very good indeed. The Naans are perfectly cooked, the plates are spicy just as they should be ......one of the best Indian... More

Missed my Indian food during my Europe visit. Tried a couple of indian restraurants but they were very expensive and far from being tasty. But food at maharani is delicious with the correct spices. Order butter chicken, biryani and dal tadka with butter naan and the German beer. Heaven!!!!!

Really tasty food and friendly service. Chicken Tikka sauce definitely one of the best I've ever had. The place seems to be usually full so prepare to wait a little before you get a table. If you are several people, reservation might be needed.

We have just come from this restaurant and we must say that this was the best Indian meal we have had in a long time! The atmosphere was great, the wait staff were fantastic and when they found out we were Australian we had a great time discussing cricket! But most importantly the food was amazing! It tasted great and... More

As we hadn't pre-booked we had a moments wait standing in the drafty 'foyer'. A courtesy refreshment would had been a nice gesture. It was evident there were too many covers for the size of the restaurant. When a table has become available we had to share with other patrons. The table linen was soiled. Waitering staff reached out over... More

Very close to the Train station and apparently very close to where I was staying, this place has a nice corner to itself - the staff is smiling and excited to offer a good service - food cud have been better - but maybe it's more towards the taste of the international guests - but its a good option for...

Always a pleasant surprise to find top-notch Indian food when travelling in Europe. This is in a nice location, close to the Lowenbrau brewery and nearby u-bahn station, but also an easy walk from the Central station. Is a fairly small establishment which means that when it is busy you may end up sharing a table with strangers, but that... More

We used to live 5om away from this restaurant and we went there very often. I think that already speaks volumes. The service was always good and the waiting staff always very friendly. They are also very child-friendly, always welcoming and making sure that kids have a high chair. They have a small weekday midday buffet which is always very... More

As a seasoned globe-trotting curry-connoisseur, I was keen to try out Maharani (given that the oldest Indian restaurant in Munich in another part of the city has now closed down) and the traditional style of Maharani appeared similar to what I was used to.....so here goes.... First impressions for me are always important. The restaurant occupies a commanding position on... More
