Love, love, love the food!

I absolutely LOVE Indian food, but am a baby about heat. Fortunately, you can order your tolerated level of heat (for me, it's mild). Two of us split a 22 ounce Haywards 5000, a delicious Indian beer, then ordered the vegetarian dinner for two ($34.00). First out was a plate of pappadam with two... read more

I moved and have been away from Madison for several years. While visiting, I had to go to the Maharaja for their lunch buffet. I love Indian food and eat it fairly frequently. Maharaja is hands down the best I have had. Make sure to save room for the mango ice cream! It is out of this world!

This place works really well if you are eating vegan. Two of us had a delightful and delicious experience at 9:30PM on a Thursday. We were greeted and seated by very friendly staff. They handled our special request to avoid butter on the garlic naan and brought it out along with cold beers promptly. We ordered a 2 dishes, a... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in the Madison area. We have tried nearly all of the Indian restaurants in Madison and we find that this is our favorite and we keep coming back. We always do the lunch buffet so that we can sample the great variety of dishes they offer. Every time there is something new we... More

I've eaten here many times over the years. I really enjoy the variety on the buffet. It's nice that it changes daily with a few items always there. You can also order off the menu. The food is always great! The Masala chai is the best around! The staff are so nice and friendly. I love this place.

The smarter half and I walked here from our hotel and were not disappointed. The menu was truly amazing, with a number of dishes I've never had nor heard of. I wanted a sampler! The Palak Paneer was very good, not the best I've ever had. My wife LOVED her Chicken Jalfrazie Curry, one of many varieties of chicken curry... More

The lunch buffet is delicious & reasonable and the staff remember us each time we come in. My husband loves the lamb curry and I enjoy the many vegetarian dishes.

Decided to try the restaurant based on a review in a local magazine. Even better than the review. Staff is prompt and helpful and food was marvelous. Best biryani I have had. They have an extensive menu and also offer a luncheon buffet.
