Wife and I went here first time a few days ago. Friends had said it was good. The buffet was a good spread of typical Indian buffet items and you could certainly fill yourself. The atmosphere is very plain and the wait staff, while responsive, were not enthusiastic. (I have to use the Royal Taj in Columbia, MD as my... More

Excellent service and food was delicious. Raita was fresh. Quiet relaxed atmosphere. Great buffets during the week.

On Oct 10 2014 three of us we went to this restaurant . We were very hungry and we have ordered 3 chicken biryani and 1 goat curry. After tasting a spoon of biryani, guess what ! It was not a biryani at all. Probably some previous day left over chicken curry was mixed with rice and served as biryani.... More

It was about 11PM and my friends and I came from a HS graduation. We were looking for a bite to eat and decided on Maharaja. We arrived JUST before they were about to close, but allowed us in and didn't make a fuss or rush us through our meal. I don't recall the name of everything we ordered, but... More

Poor Customer Service. Guy at the counter is very rude. I totally hate the way he spoke with us. I went to one of my friends party. The guy at the counter cheated my friend by charging 165$ (inc gratuity). He did'nt listen to any of us. He did'nt care about the customer. More over party hall is very small.

We eat lunch at Maharaja often. The lunch buffet is constantly delicious. Never an empty water glass :-) Always plenty of food. Great place to try Indian if you've never had it. The buffet always has a couple chicken dishes and sometimes, if you're lucky, goat. Several vegetable dishes in the buffet lineup as well. You won't leave hungry or... More

My family has been eating here for years, especially on Sunday nights (for the buffet). I should add here that my son-in-law is Indian, and my daughter (a university professor of Hindi and Urdu) lived in India for years and is a proficient Indian cook. I have been to India twice myself. My point: I think I'm a pretty good... More

DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE:. If you do not have kids do not go: food took 1 hour to be at the table and the lamb curry tasted like un-frozen—as well as the onion stuffed bread. What was awful in this place is that they do not care about children!! I brought my baby and asked vegetables with paneer... More

With very picky kids, we typically will get take out from Maharaja as the food is consistently the same. As restaurants change ownership and/or chefs the food can be unpredictable. The food here never disappoints us and the prices are consistent for the area. Excellent selection of vegetarian foods. Food can be made in Jain style for catered orders if... More
