Stopped in for a late dinner carryout to our hotel across the street. Service was quick and friendly. Food was excellent; I especially enjoyed the spring rolls! Back home in Illinois, I wish I had some right now. Yum!

Stopped in to grab a bite to eat and was pleasantly surprised to find a delicious buffet of indian cuisine. Lots of variety in their selections. Kind and friendly staff. Masala tea is good. Will stop in again on my next visit.

Went for lunch and was very disappointed in the service. Food was nothing special. Had two different people come to my table before a third woman finally took my order. I had the Chicken Tikki and asked for rice with it. Also ordered garlic naan....More

We have been here 4-5 times a year for the last couple of years. We live about 30 minutes from Madison and have come in just to visit Maharani's. My wife was skeptical about trying Indian food but we visited for the lunch buffet and...More
