Good location - best meat in town!

My favourite meat from all the Indian restaurants but it is more expensive than all the others so we only go as a very special treat. The lights can be a little annoying but the ladies are always given a rose when they leave. Staff are attentive and friendly.

Lovely atmosphere and very friendly, professional staff. The menu offers most of the usual curries along with many Maharajah specials which are lovely. As I had been spoiled for choice between two main courses and had enjoyed my meal so much, I ordered my second choice meal as a take-away, which was also very tasty. Will use again soon.

On arrival after being seated we were harassed almost intimidated into hurrying to order drinks. When I said we might have a bottle of wine the waiter said "Chablis?" Strange response. We ordered Papadoms which were good but the onion salad was strange if not horrid. With the constantly changing coloured lighting shining directly on our plates sometimes it looked... More

We love it here. Take away and eat in are wonderful. Great menu and never had a bad meal. We've become regulars and although trying others in Sandy,by far our favorite.

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.

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.

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.
