Went in to the Maharajah on the offchance as the Gandhi was heaving, but we were not disappointed. Nice, bright interior, excellent service and reasonable prices. What was particularly good was the unusual items on the menu (together with the Standards), particularly fish & shellfish; I had mussels to kick off with and they were excellent- can't wait to try...

Thrilled to see this place once again as an Indian restaurant. We visited last night and the food was delicious - everyone in our party rated their dishes. Jaffar (the owner) and his team were back to their old attentive selves to ensure that the service provided was second to none. The evening was closed off with a lovely rose... More

Best Indian in town, alas it has now closed down and been replaced by an American diner, shame. I know Sandy has a lot of Indian restaurants, this was the best and will be sadly missed.

As always the Maharajah didn't let us down. A special treat for my daughter's birthday and all the family agreed the best Indian meal they'd had...thanks too (especially Jaffa) for the special birthday attention, Carys loved it!

Every time we eat here it makes us think why can't other restaurants use top quality meat and ingredients. Great selection, great service ever time.

Imagine a group of females on a night out for a birthday celebration. Several of us found the waiters accidentally catching our breasts when placing food and/or taking our coats off and helping them on. The food was lovely and portion size was substantial, I asked for and was given a doggy bag. We laughed off our experience but just... More
