Great food and service

Had a meal here the other night, seemed to be genuinely welcomed, handshakes etc. and made to feel valued. Food was good, but the lighting takes some getting used to, constantly changing colour, which can be a little disconcerting. Good value, and a nice twist on standard Asian fayre.

the menu promises much - lots of marinating/seasonal/fresh/fruit and herbs. The reality was dishes that were hard to distinguish and were a throw back to the days of chicken/beef/lamb in generic sauces where the relationship between the meat and the sauce was incidental rather than the centrepiece. Starters were only just warm and the place was far from full. Compared... More

Went to the Maharajah for dinner tonight, great food and great service. Been here a few times before and each time is better than the last.

I felt the need to write another review, following up on my last one. We got another takeaway from Maharajah and it was really nice. The flavours and ingredients were back to their usual standard and I'd be happy to recommend them to anyone. The previous time I'll put down to a glitch - as I hoped it was.

I visited Maharajah for a takeaway last night as I am a very keen and regular user of another restaurant in the village. I do however keep hearing how fantastic this place is so thought I would try it again. Disappointed is not the word. I ordered EXACTLY the same thing as my other fave place. The onion and garlic...

We visited this restaurant for the first time last weekend for a family birthday celebration. It was my brother in law's recommendation as we don't live locally, but he has lived here for 15 years so I wish he had told us about this restaurant sooner. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome, and the... More

I've been using Maharajah to eat in and for takeaway ever since it opened and have always been really impressed with the quality of the food. The service can sometimes be a bit slow when it's busy, but the food is so good I forgive them - until now... The takeaway we had tonight was bland and mediocre at best... More

We have been using the Maharajah since it opened, both as a takeaway and for sit down food. The food has always been excellent and they offer a good choice and the staff and very friendly and attentive and very very polite. It is the best Indian in the area and is a modern and roomy restaurant. Nine of us... More

Me and my wife visit this restaurant on a regular basis. The food and service are consistently very good and the staff will alway suggest dishes to suit your tastes and will even tweak a dish to your preferences. I am surprised at the negative reviews. This place is well worth a visit.
