Description: Restaurante Maharaja, se encuentra en el corazon del Raval y desde el ano 2001 acercamos la cocina hindu a Barcelona, invitandoles a descubrir el delicioso patrimonio gastronomico desarrollado en la India a lo largo de los siglos. La India es una enorme mezcla de estilos culinarios, cada uno con su propio distintivo: especias, hierbas, ingredientes y tecnicas, muchas de las cuales se evidencian en nuestros esfuerzos, ya que los platos pueden contener una mezcla de hasta 40 o mas especias y hierbas, que nos ayudan a crear platos realmente tentadores. Los detalles decorativos del restaurante recrean el ambiente de un palacio de Maharaja. Las paredes estan adornadas con retratos de la realeza, complementados con objetos de laton y distintos detalles de cristal. Desde Restaurante Maharaja les damos la mas cordial bienvenida.

“Catalan Indian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

The staff are friendly, and the food is good, but if you are used to English 'Indian' food then you need to specify that you would like more spices. Catalans don't do 'hot' and to an English palate the food might seem bland, but providing you ask as you order this is one of the best 'Indian' restaurants in Barcelona. The Rambla de Raval is a great place to eat outside/people watch during the summer but if you are walking there, through teh Raval district, be careful re pickpockets. Ample choice for vegetarians and meat eaters.

“Nice food at good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Good food in local area.. right price and stomach filling. The taste of food is good! Just you need to inform them in advance if you need the food to be little spicy.. I would recommend that if you are hungry and missing some Indian tasty food... go to Maharaja and anjoy the meal. :)

“Locals recommend”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

Its a little Indian restaurant and locals recommend it strongly, nothing major about the food taste nor extra ordinary service, but works when and if you are hungry. Its just that the area is approachable only through some shoddy neighbourhood if you are coming from Liceu.
All in all when you want Indian try it, but don't judge Indian food by this.

“Delightful Indian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We ordered butter naan, lamb rogan josh, and chicken biryani. All three we excellent. In fact the best Indian we have had. There was, however, not very much meat in the dishes, but all had wonderful flavor and were not greasy like many Indian restaurants. The waiter was very nice, the place is not fancy, but clean. Our bill including a small bottle of water was 21 euros. Portions are average size, so if you are really hungry order more. There were also the standard Barcelona three course lunches available, but we opted for our favorites.
