“Surprisingly excellent.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Within the first couple of minutes sitting down here we were concerned how the meal would go, service initially was chaotic but as the meal went on endeared itself into charmingly chaotic. The food, was excellent, no two ways about it, come here for the food and allow everything else to sail on past. The quality of the chicken meat was top notch, no stringy thigh gristle here, the sauces bursting with deep flavour and the tandoor cooked starters immaculately cooked and presented in style on skewers in brass pots. I would highly recommend, an unexpected treasure in palm cove and we will definitely be back.

“Best Indian in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Without a doubt the best Indian restraunt in Cairns! And it's situated in palm cove - arguably the best suburb of Cairns...

Went to dinner tonight, table of 6 and we couldn't have asked for a better night! Great professional and friendly service. Food came out on time and was deliciously. Best dish - without a doubt!!!! Butter chicken!!!

It is my favourite Indian place in town! I've tried all the others but maharajas wins hands down!

“Yummy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

my husband and I walked down one evening and decided to eat here. We sat out by the pool and had the butter chicken and vegetable curry - both were very tasty. The staff were very friendly and quick service. I would recommend eating here.

“Best Indian in Cairns (well Plam Cove)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Been looking for an authentic Indian since moving back to Cairns from the UK 2 years ago and we finally found one - Maharajas!

From the excellent and attentive service to the amazing and delicious food there is nothing you can fault about this place

It is a little hard to find unless you know where to look so a little tip - it is behind the Chinese restaurant at the Mercure end of the Esplanade

Looking forward to coming back!
