Last weekend was my first time at Maharaja, I went there after reading many good reviews and can agree with them. Food is delicious, good sized portions, not expensive. The interior is not that great but at the end you go there to eat. A good value for money. You've got one new client!!

I love Indian food and here you get the best! Tasty, nice portions and good value for money. The place really welcomes you and the staff are helpful and always with a smile. Only pity is that they don't stock non-alcoholic beer!

This is by far my favourite Indian Restaurant in Malta. It has me coming back everytime. The staff, the amazing smell, the cosiness of the place,, and most important the authenticity of the food are the reasons for me declaring Maharajah as the best Indian food restaurant to eat in or take-away. Plus the owner is the nicest man I... More
