Visited Maharaja India on Friday night for dinner. Had the Butter prawns and husband had the Tika Masala - both excellent - made from curry spices. Good quantity of prawns and chicken. And the rice with a fresh herb in was excellent - not dry but very light and tasty. We even brought some of the Head Chefs packet curry... More

After we were there the first time it became like a mission to try an Indian restaurant everywhere we went on the South Island. And we definitely have to say: it was from the beginning and it stays the best Indian food on the Newzealand southern island!! If we could we would import them to cologne (Germany).

Roger has an incredible knack of being so calm and collected and serving such incredible food. Our table had: Chicken tikka Masala,... More

Great food, great value. Head chef sells his own spices and recipes so you can make your own at home. Took lessons in the car park, was fantastic....thanks so much for teaching me to make a great butter chicken!!!

It was the night of the Marlborough Wine Festival so we were prepared for a busy night and booked ahead for 3 people, table not set but no big problem. However we waited 45minutes for one large entree of the 3 ordered to appear (maybe it belonged to someone else as we did get another smaller one with our other... More

The ladies working: Vinu, Viba, and Rojee were absolutely outstanding and we could tell that they were working so hard and making everything run smoothly. I had the creative curry, I think it was a take on their butter chicken and my husband... More

I am impressed with the food, very freshly cooked and well presented. We had Roger's Balti Masala and the Chicken Korma, with garlic naan bread - all excellent. The portions are large and came out in copper type pots with the rice separately served on a platter. We were given a complimentary Beef Jalfrezi as well. It is a family... More
