“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

Ate there recently during a stop over in Blenheim. We tend to eat a lot of curries at home and so like to try different styles on holiday and certainly the Maharaja did not disappoint . The food was cooked well and well flavoured and good sized quantities. A very enjoyable meal. Yes as others have mentioned the decor is a bit dark but good company and good food what more do you need. Service we found very good and staff pleasant even popping out to get something for us they did not have

“Good Food but average Dining Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

The mains we had were excellent however the restaurant could do with a makeover.

The restaurant itself was dark and dingy and didn't have much atmosphere but the food is quality Indian Cuisine.
