Its a restaurant serving curries. Got to be honest, its not special. If fact, I'd only describe it as a tourist restaurant. The sauce was thin with little content. It was bland and the nan bread was thin, crisp and not worth eating. A very low to average experience.

The curry was quite nice, the service was okay. We thought it a bit pricey for what it was. We live in Surrey and our Indian restaurants offer better food for less money

Went to Maha based on TA reviews and wasn't disappointed - my father has a decent prawn massala and my lamb biryani was lovely. Unpretentious place, good food and attentive staff, would definitely recommend.

We went to this restaurant on a Monday night so business was a little quiet. This meant that the service was really good and everything went well but we were not rushed.

What a fantastic meal. Didn't book but fitted in. Excellent bhajis, curry, pickles and service! Best curry I have had in many months. Recommended by hotel owner and absolutely correct. Cannot recommend this place more highly.

We have searched long & hard for a decent Indian in Torbay since we arrived from London five years ago - this is not it. The food was just tasteless - Tarka Dahl without any spices, over thick curries, tough meat....... The restaurant looked like something from the 70s - the massive fish tank with so few live fish in... More

We had very nice meals here; lots of different curry options, including a few we hadn't heard of before. Extensive drinks menu, and really good service. A top spot if you feel like curry.
