A nice clean restaurant with friendly waiter but compared to other Indian restaurants our food was poor. The lamb was tough and lacked flavour and the tikka masala was a pink bland slop. Sorry to give a bad review but hopefully the chef will take this on board.

Hi! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review, we are sorry to hear the lamb was tough to chew, we would like to point out that our chefs cook it in a Tandoori oven using the best kind of Lamb. We are surprised you did not bring this up with one of our staff at the... More

I've eaten here a number of times & have never been disappointed. It is the best indian restaurant around. Lovely views, great staff, and the food is always amazing. I have never managed to finish the whole meal there is so much of it, but they wrap it up for you to take home if you want.

20 of us had a great evening of very tasty food, great service and it was great to be able to add extra spice to some of the milder currys for great flavour and a bit of kick. Always great hospitality by the friendly staff, thanks for a great night. Andy

Really good authentic Indian food. It's really hard now a days to get this type of food. But to get this on a trip down in Cornwall is just amazing. Will definitely recommend it to anyone. Service and food is out of this world.

It is always a pure delight to eat from Maharajah. The food is top class when it comes to Indian cuisine, we absolutely love the diversity of the menu. My favourite dish is the prawn biryani and the cheese naan which is to die for as well as the bhindi do pyaza! The staff's service and friendliness is remarkable. We... More
