Absolutely amazing, the food, the service is just brilliant. This isn't my first time here but each and every time I visit it never ever fails. It's a must do when in this town. I've even sent my friends here and they love Indian food and it's the best they've ever had! Don't miss out, go and visit this restaurant.

Excellent food with an authentic Indian atmosphere. The views were amazing and the staff were very friendly and helpful especially to the children. Very grateful for them to take the time and effort to squeeze us in during a busy weekend during holiday season. I will definitely return and recommend to my friends.

My wife & I have been visiting the Maharajah Indian Restaurant for many years and have never had cause to complain. To the contrary, the service and food continue to be outstanding. Living near Newquay, when we have friends or family visiting, we always recommend this restaurant to them.

Great food, a very warm welcome, relaxing decor and some of the most stunning coastal views in the UK. If you are making a booking ask for a window table to get the greatest view possible.

Went in a party of four, great service, attentive staff, nothing too much trouble. Impressed by the extensive menu. We all had something different and all of our party thoroughly enjoyed the food. Really nice decor and surroundings and if you get the chance to go in daylight there are spectacular views across Newquay Bay.
