Probably the best biryani place in the area! Their party Biryani is a must have for meat lovers. Very friendly staff and management as well!

We absolutely loved this place! The décor is elegant and clean, they do a good job on covid safety, and the food may well be the best Indian food we've ever had. The only downside I can think of is the service was a tiny...bit on the slow side, so this is not a place to go if you're in a hurry. Otherwise, I can't recommend this highly enough.More

We’ve eaten at many Indian restaurants around the world, and this is one of the best and most authentic. Everything was excellent! Chicken samosas were great. Even something as mundane as onion naan was superb. Shrimp vindaloo was outstanding. Will definitely stop here again when...we’re in the area.More

I ordered take out and it’s the best I’ve had in Albany yet. Super flavorful, excellent spice level, and great prices. The staff asked for my name for future orders and really seemed to know their customers well (the guy picking up his food after...me didn’t even need to say his name). I almost felt welcomed into a family just by getting really great tasting take out. I’ll definitely be back!More

We’ve enjoyed dinner at Maharaja several times now—the food is consistently delicious, the best we’ve found in Albany. Paired with friendly service and fair prices, it’s a favorite!

Ordered through grubhub and had it delivered. Had the chicken tikka masala, garlic naan, and chicken pakora. It was very good. The right amount of spice and seasonings.

If it had not been for review here that said ignore hte exterior, it would have taken years to get around to Maharaja, which would have been our loss. Did carry out. Rogan Josh and Chicken Saag were both very, very, good. Will be going...back in person or take out soon. They do not deliver, but Grubhub and competitors.More

I ate here from last Four years before this restaurant before it's name is Flavors of India. The Restaurant food is very Good. I am Indian and i like North Indian Spicy food. The cook in Maharaja Restaurant is very experienced and there Restaurant is...very clean and staff is very Good. I love their Banarasi Dum Aloo Specifically and Kashmiri Naan. In last Four years i try all the restaurant in Albany Area. But no Indian Restaurant have this much authentic taste as Maharaja. I ate all the vegetarian Dishes in Maharaja.More

I stoppedby Maharaja surprisingly in time for their weekday lunch buffet. I had expected to order off the menu but decided on the lunch buffet since it was available. chana masala, saag paneer,chicken biriyani,samosas, pakoras,cooked chicken and the ever popular chicken tikka masala could be...found. .several pickles and chutneys were also available as was white rice.in addition, to go along with the buffet items we received a nice order of hot buttered naan. there were ample plates ,dishes and water filled containers readily at hand..for dessert I had several servings of the refreshing kheer to cut the spice I found in one of the buffet items. the lighting ,the open layout and the nicely appointed decor of the restaurant made for a comfortable dining experience.This is a good value buffet to try some North Indian cuisine.I've eaten here before and if you know what you like you should not be disappointed. I had chicken 65 here for the first time and it was outstanding..More

The lunch buffet is good, but the chicken is always too cool or dried out. So, I order the 1/2 tandoor chicken which is always great.

I was in a party of three for dinner at this restaurant. We all thought the food was delicious. The restaurant looked nice. Our visit was on an early Sunday evening. The restaurant was half full and the noise level was lower than average. Service...was prompt and friendly. The experience was worth the restaurant’s prices.More
