Really good Indian food served by an attentive polite staff. The Mixed Thali gives you a taste of six different dishes.

We went on a Monday night right after it opened and were the first ones. But even when it was really crowded an hour and a half later, the waiters were very attentive (turned off the AC for us and helped us out immediately with all requests). The choice of food is very broad and it takes a while to... More

Ordered one dish for takeaway to try the food and it literally had four pieces of chicken in a red coloured sauce which may or may not have had food colouring. I tried one mouthful and threw away the rest. This is not Indian/Asian food. You really need to visit other restaurants to improve your standards, others may tolerate the... More

Good quality Indian food at reasonable prices. I ate there on a Saturday evening with a group of friends. The restaurant was quite busy, and the service was quite good. An extensive choice of dishes on the menu. My only gripe would be that the flooring needs some attention - whenever anyone walked past our table (which the waiters tended... More

Warm, friendly and excellent food. Price was reasonable and the quality of food was outstanding. Having just been to India for a holiday I was reluctant to try this right away as I felt it would be a let down. It was not and I look forward to returning to this wonderful restaurant. They do a booming take out service... More

We have been using the Maharaja for many years now and have always found the standards of food and service to be excellent. The food is delicious and offers a variety of flavours for all different tastes including their own 'speciality' dishes which are all extremely good and at very reasonable prices. They have recently updated their menu to include... More

Maharaja is our local Indian restaurant. We often get take aways and occasionally eat in the restaurant. The food is mild, i.e. not too spicy. There is plenty of choice, the service is friendly and it is reasonably priced. There is sometimes a wait if you order at a busy time. This restaurant is popular with locals, particular for take...

I’ve been using the Maharaja ever since it first opened 22 years ago (in 1991). Although I’ve since moved out of the area, my wife and I visit Northwood 3-4 times in every 2 months to meet with my daughter and we still thoroughly enjoy a meal here. Even though there is a lot of competition in Northwood, it is,... More

My wife and I have been eating here for about five years and love it. I have cooked and eaten Indian food for many years and this food is fantastic. The staff are friendly and helpful, nothing is to much for them and always have a smile. It's a relaxed atmosphere. I CAN'T UNDERSTAND WHY ANYONE COULD LEAVE BAD FEEDBACK... More
