As we were up in Bedfordshire we paid a return visit to "The Maharaja of Sandy" indian restaurant in Market Square, Sandy. It was a Saturday evening and the place was fairly full on our arrival, we had not pre- booked so to wait five minutes for a table was not a problem. Unfortunately because the place was busy we...

Good food and a great service, but lighting could be a lot better. Very welcoming and we have tried many of the other restaurant in the area but this is the favourite

Recently moved up the road a little to Sandy and on our second night decided to try out the Maharajah after some recommendations from friends. Everything we ate was excellent and the standard of service was exemplary. As well as the usual "common or garden" curries, they have a great selection of specialities. Now that we're in the area and... More

We had a flyer through our door last week and thought we would have a change and try an Indian Take Away as we usually order Chinese. I have to say, we were not disappointed. The take away arrived quicker than anticipated. We ordered a mixed starter which was a chicken pakora, lamb samosa and onion bhajee and it was... More

Visited for the second time with friends and didn't fail to disappoint. No problem with service or food by way of taste and presentation. they do try and go the extra mile which is hardly surprising giving the options for Indian dining in Sandy. I do acknowledge what people say about the lighting but I don't see it as an... More

The atmosphere and welcoming is outstanding, the food is always prompt hot and fresh. I think I have tried most things on the menu. The restaurant is very popular so you may have to book in advance however they have always gone out of their way to find us a table when we have arrived without booking, although we have... More

Went here recently after having been to the Gandhi a few times and Gandhi is definitely better in terms of value for money. I had a bhuna and found the chicken to be a bit tough and dry...just generally the whole meal was not as fresh tasting as it is at the Gandhi! The atmosphere is okay and all the... More

Not great experience here - my husband and I ate here several weeks ago and decided to go back to our local after eating here. Very disappointed. Meat was incredibly tough and was as though it was thrown in the sauce after being cooked as it appeared to have no taste. Portions were small. Restaurant is dark and poorly lit... More
