Description: Restaurante Maharaja, se encuentra en el corazon del Raval y desde el ano 2001 acercamos la cocina hindu a Barcelona, invitandoles a descubrir el delicioso patrimonio gastronomico desarrollado en la India a lo largo de los siglos. La India es una enorme mezcla de estilos culinarios, cada uno con su propio distintivo: especias, hierbas, ingredientes y tecnicas, muchas de las cuales se evidencian en nuestros esfuerzos, ya que los platos pueden contener una mezcla de hasta 40 o mas especias y hierbas, que nos ayudan a crear platos realmente tentadores. Los detalles decorativos del restaurante recrean el ambiente de un palacio de Maharaja. Las paredes estan adornadas con retratos de la realeza, complementados con objetos de laton y distintos detalles de cristal. Desde Restaurante Maharaja les damos la mas cordial bienvenida.

We got here after walking around Rambla, we had the Thalis and the tandoori chicken. Lassi was rich and creamy, not sour enough for my taste. Nans were fresh and hot, rice and Dhal were excellent meat dishes were a bit sweet but still authentic. Service was excellent, bhajis were good . Lunch is very good value

My wife and I were a bit sick of the excessive people at the Ramblas and decided to take a side street instead. Stumbled upon this Indian restaurant and my wife said she felt like eating Indian food. I went along a bit skeptical until the food arrived at the table. Very very good Indian food. Easily 5 stars for... More

Dined here twice. On both occasions I had the chicken bouna and although it was hotter than I am used to, it was excellent and on our second evening there my mum and sister had the same. They appreciated us coming back and gave us complimentary schnappes to apparently help with the digestion. VERY reasonable prices.

But I was wrong! Solid food, very tasty (if not so spicy -- I guess they are catering to the fact that Spaniards can't handle the spice), quality ingredients and lovingly cooked. We had the thalis and everything in it from the naan to the daal was just amazing. Lovely outdoor seating on a sunny day on the Rambla del... More

I have been eating in this restaurant for three years and I have always been impressed and delighted. The quality of the ingredients is always evident, the care and preparation is truly impressive for any restaurant but when you add to that the very extensive menu it is quite amazing. The staff are always friendly and welcoming and this for... More
