this place is amazing and have been going there for my Friday night curry for years. the front of house staff deliver the highest standard of service possible. the restaurant is laid out well and service is fast. parking your car can be a little hard at times but well worth it. highly recommended.

I found this great little restaurant on TripAdvisor and yet again the site has delivered. I was only staying for one night in Telford so looking for somewhere decent to eat other than remain in the hotel restaurant. The door was opened for us as we arrived and as it wasn't very busy, we chose a nice table in the... More

I know I am old but around 30 years ago I discovered the marvellous chicken vindaloo. Ok not in this part of the country but having lived five miles from this restaurant and sampled so called chicken vindaloo in many restaurants close to our house. NOTHING.....compares to Maharaja's this is the exact most fantastic ( although not for the faint... More

I've been living in Telford for over 30 years now. One of my first memories of Telford was visiting the Maharaja in Madeley with friends. We had good food, good service and good fun. There was a spell when we did not go when the kids were little and it was MacDonalds instead. Probably around 10 years ago we decided... More

This reviewer went with two others for dinner. We parked in the restaurant's car park, from where one of us observed the kitchen for a couple of minutes before pronouncing herself satisfied with the hygiene and food handling. We went in nevertheless without elevated expectations, which were not raised by the wait we had to go through for a table... More

Went to Maharaja last night with my father. Have been there a few times and the food is generally consistent. Last night I had the Chicken Chilli Tawa and it was absolutely beautiful. Enough chicken for two people. This is now my favourite dish.

I have been using this curry house for around 30 years but not any more. The level of service last night verged on plain rude then they tried to rip me off - AGAIN. Good food but not worth all the hassle. Always check your bill ! Pity but plenty more local curry houses and it is now them that... More

I visited in late May with friends long resident in the area who like it and never go elsewhere for Indian dining although there are 2 other Indian restaurants in the area at least one of which has won awards. When I asked for a salty lassi to drink, the staff either had never heard of it or certainly didn't... More
