We love this place. It is like our second home and makes you feel comfortable. The food is very tasty and prices are very reasonable. Location of the restaurant is very central and we regularly dine at this restaurant as they are so accommodating to our particular taste.Well done! Keep it up

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.

Been coming here ever since they opened their doors in 2010, this family run indian restaurant has the best indian food! Tried lots of stuff from the menu and never dissapointed as they are always tasty, generous portions. The owner John is always friendly and welcoming and so is his wife. Can not recommend this place enough!

The best restaurant for Indian food- portions are larger than other restaurants, great value and everything's delicious. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and quick service. Booking recommended since the place gets filled up quickly especially on weekends. Definitely recommend this.
