Nice Indian food. Unlike at home in Australia I noticed New zealand Indian restaurants use a lot more traditional spices in there dishes and are not so westernised. It is very nice.

The waiting staff were excellent and checked on us through out the meal to ensure everything was just right. If you like Butter chicken and Chicken Tikka Marsala then this is the place for you as they have a special dish called... More

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
