It was as if the restaurant had secretly phone tapped my taste-buds to find out precisely what would make them happy. They had a special 'secret' dish that night and it was absolutely delicious and slightly less hot than hot (the heat balance I've been trying to get for years with no luck until tonight). The mild korma which my... More

The food here is to die for! I am not keen on going out for an Indian meal being Indian myself but I was taken here by my partner to save me cooking and now it has become a weekly/monthly must have. The food is catered for the individuals taste depending on how spicy you want it. there is a... More

Excellent staff and service, takeaway to die for. Asked the owner for one of his specials, not on the menu, best curry I have ever had. Everything I ordered was spot on. Would definitely recommend.

We had stopped using this restaurant some time ago as we had a very poor meal and felt the service had been sub-standard. However we decided to give it another try after a 2year absence and were glad we did. Although parking is an issue and the restaurant is a little to cosy at times, the atmosphere was good, the...

We always have a good eating experience here, the Chicken Tikka Korma is to die for! The downsides though are that the Coke is from a bottle (bleurgh), they really need to invest in a draught tap, and when you sit near the walls you are extremely squashed in and could easily knock the next tables drinks over when you...

We popped to the Maharani one rainy Tuesday night and received a warm welcome with poppadoms & array of pickles at the table straightaway. The service was attentive and professional. The food was brilliant. My veg curry was full of lots of different veg and so flavoursome that I couldn't stop thinking about it all the next day! Gorgeous sag... More

I've been visiting the Maharani for the last 6-7 years and only just thought about adding a review mainly because I've always received excellent service and good food at the restaurant which left me assuming it would be highly rated on Trip advisor. It is a complete surprise to read some of the poor reviews especially as they don't stack... More

The decor is dated. The place doesn't exactly have grear ambience, the toilets were freezing, but the food! YUMMY. The waitors seemed a... More

Partners birthday and it was our 9 year old daughters first time having an Indian meal. Booked a table for 7.30 - we were 10 mins late for which... More

Myself and 6 work colleges booked a table for our quarterly get together and once again Shabul done us proud. The restaurant as usual was packed not just because it was Friday night but because the atmosphere and Quality of the food is in a class of its own. We asked Shabul to do us a banquet and believe me... More
