My fiance and I spent a romantic Friday evening at Maharaja Indian Restaurant and we felt it necessary to report back to TripAdvisor that the food and service were EXCELLENT. We are both curry addicts so our standards are high. Along with some wine, we enjoyed an entree sampler -- which presented us with THE best vegetarian samosas I've ever... More

We came here with another couple for dinner and it was really good. We got the banquet at $35 per person and was such good value. We got papadums for the table, each got to choose a starter, main and bread, dessert and rice was for the table. The curries were medium spice and just right. Desserts were very strange... More

Great food served by excellent staff who are friendly but not intrusive. A visitor, who used to live in England, said she had the best curry there since leaving England. There's car parking around the back but side-streets close by also have good parking. The restaurant is in an old house that has been thoughtfully refurbished and the way this... More

Family of 5, found this restaurant and very pleased. All meats very tender. Curry not too thick but pleasantly filling and aromatic. Very good service, felt extremely happy to be customers there. Would recommend to anyone looking for good Indian food in Christchurch.
