We stayed at Royal Cliff Grand Hotel, which itself is a very royal hotel and when we went to Maharani- got to taste the Royal Indian food, definetely the best Indian food in Pattaya. For the main course, we ordered Butter Chicken, Malai Kofta and Daal Makhani (they have named this daal differently, don't remember that name now), we really... More

They got it right with this one. All the elements of food, fit out, location are spot on. Service could use some fine tuning but everything else makes that almost irrelevant. Located at the Royal Cliff it's worth the journey of you are staying in central Pattaya. It really is a genuine escape to India experience. Extremely underrated. Best gulab... More

The Maharani Room in the Royal Cliff Hotel offers the best Indian food in Pattaya. Service is good and food is delivered reasonably quickly. Service can sometimes be a little patchy, but generally it is OK. Considering that it is located in this hotel, I think the prices are very reasonable - certainly cheaper than Indian by Nature. The curries... More

Surely the best and elegantly-served Indian food in Pattaya, whether veg or non veg, spicy or not. Although some of the Royal Cliff's premier restaurants are city institutions, for example the Grill Room, for some reason the Maharani hasn't got that fame, yet anyway. It is not more expensive than the better Indian restaurants in town and the variety of... More

Maybe it's because of it's location and that it is situated in a 5 star hotel, is the reason this restaurant rates so low on Trip Advisor. The Maharani serves the best Indian food in Pattaya and leaves all the other Indian restaurants wanting when it comes to the quality of food and service. This is an up market restaurant... More

This restaurant is like on the hill top - highest side on Pattaya. If you go during the day, the view is SUPER. At night, the breeze does the trick. The restaurant ambience is very good. Old Indian Moghul Theme. And the food, much better than the other Indian restaurant's we visited. it is much pricier than other restaurants but... More

This restaurant, situated in the huge Royal Cliff Hotel complex, next to the Pattaya Exhibition Centre) is for me one of the two best Indian Restaurants in Pattaya. All the guests I have been dining or lunching with agree to that statement. You will not be disappointed. Most of the time we go there with the same group of people... More
